Colloidal Vs Ionic  Mineral Debate Summary.

All electro-colloidal processes produce both particles “Colloids” and “Ions” in the same solution.

"Colloids" are groups of atoms in suspension.  The term  “Ion” means "charged particle" and in a colloid generally refers to a molecule or  atom in suspension having  a charge.


1. Higher Colloidal Ratio products seem to have more “Staying power”

2. Higher Ionic Ratio products seem to be faster acting.

3. Both products if taken internally are significantly pre-absorption enhanced if “swished   in the mouth” for a few moments.

4. Ionic products have little agglomeration problems (Sediment) and are usually not light sensitive. A good way to identify a poor colloid having sediment on the bottom.

5.Concentration in a colloid will have a strong silver taste which is less taste identifiable in an Ionic concentrate.

The secondary question being asked is “Which properties of Ionic mineral solutions or Colloidal Mineral solutions are the most desirable?"   For this reason we have devoted significant analysis and research in this article:

Colloidal Products Quality Test.

NOTE: Any product claiming a PPM concentration of pure Colloidal particles (No additives, proteins, salts, etc) exceeding 55 PPM in a  mg\\L measurement is likely a FAIRY TALE. The PPM calibrated TDS conductivity measurements for Ionic concentrations may exceed 500 PPM but exhibit little gained benefit exceeding 250 PPM and would begin to have unnatural negative influences on the body over 1000 PPM.
