Important Notes about this Table
Essential minerals in SierraSil: Calcium, potassium, sodium, phosphorus, magnesium, iron, manganese, copper, zinc (See table for specific health functions).
+ The recommended daily intake of sodium is 1500 mg. Diets containing no more than 1500 mg of sodium are recommended for the maintenance of healthy blood pressure.
*The aluminum content of SierraSil is lower than normally present in the environment as well as many commonly consumed foods, including baked goods and tap water. The upper limit is 70 mg/day per Joint FAO/WHO Expert Committee on Food Additives (1998). The upper limit is the maximum dose likely to be safe in nearly all individuals.
**The recommended daily intake for iron is 18 mg/day.
++Silicon is a source of dietary silica. Silica is required for healthy tissues and bone development and maintenance. Currently, there is no recommended dosage for dietary silica, but research suggests the body needs from 20 – 200 mg/day.
Barium is a naturally occurring mineral found in tap water, air, solid and commonly consumed foods such as seaweed, fish, and Brazil nuts. There is currently no maximum dosage for barium in foods or supplements. The maximum allowable level of Barium in drinking water is 2 ppm (2 mg/L).
Cobalt is a component of vitamin B12 that helps to form red blood cells and metabolize carbohydrates, fats and proteins. The recommended dosage for cobalt alone is 0.004 – 44 mcg/day. The maximum combined dosage of cobalt and vitamin B12 should not exceed 1000 mcg (1 mg) vitamin vitamin B12 per day (Recommended dosage for vitamin B12 is 0.14 – 1000 mcg/day).
Mineral Content of SierraSil®
SierraSil®’s rich clay mineral structure has strong health promoting and detoxifying properties. Due to its charged and porous structure, SierraSil attracts and binds positivity charged toxins, harmful bacteria and viruses as well as heavy metals, pesticides and other common chemical toxins, facilitating their safe removal from the body (Johns & Duquette, 1991).
