Our story… why we source and supply Colloidal Minerals
As some of our food is lacking in minerals due to soil depletion, Cyndi has been recommending the benefits of colloidal minerals for years. Unable to find a quality supplier that did not add preservatives or extract from suitable sources, we now supply organic, Australian Colloidal Minerals that are extracted from peat (vegetation) through a cold method, ensuring the life giving elements are preserved.

Serving suggestion: 1-2 teaspoons in water, fresh fruit juice or smoothie each day. Place in refrigerator once opened.
Dissolved organic carbon (D.O.C. 640mg C/L extracted from organic matter having a humic acid fraction of 67.95%.
No artificial flavours, colours, preservatives or stabilizers.
No acids or heating used to extract the minerals.
Please note: A small amount of alcohol (4.5%) is used to preserve the colloidal minerals.
Changing Habits plant-derived Organic Colloidal Minerals can be used daily to promote general health and well-being by providing essential minerals, trace elements and nutrients in a form that is easily utilized by the body.
Derived from ancient vegetation (peat), cold-extracted and suspended in ultra-pure de-ionised water, this product is rich in trace elements essential for the body to achieve and maintain great health. Modern food can be shown to be deficient in many of these vital trace elements, this is due to modern farming methods and long term storage of food. These elements assist in many chemical reactions required for correct body function.
There are 7 minerals essential for life. These minerals are: calcium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, sulfur, sodium and chlorine. There are another 9 trace minerals; iron, zinc, iodine, selenium, copper, manganese flourine, chromium and molybdenum required by the body in small amounts for optimum health. Other trace minerals which have not been identified as essential in many text books are proving to be required by the body for growth and maintenance. The more we learn about the body the more we realise what we don’t know. All the minerals in the Changing Habits Colloidals are found in food and may have an important role to play in health. Just because science hasn’t found the reason for the mineral doesn’t mean that it is not needed. For instance valanium which is not seen as an essential mineral has been found to be important in blood glucose homeostasis.
In a book entitled ” Colloidal Minerals and Trace Elements – How to Restore the Body’s Natural Vitality” by Marie-France Muller it states that tests done on rats (and thus equates to living beings) can be fed into a diseased condition and then fed out of it again to perfect health, merely by having specific minerals withheld from their regular diet. Not only were the rats in question bred right down to a third of their natural size over a ten year period, but their intelligence, bone structure, general health and social behaviour all suffered badly as a result of mineral depletion.
Why are we short on minerals?
Soil depletion: The problem is modern farming practices and the soil our foods are grown, are depleted of trace minerals. The fertilize used only replace a few of the major minerals (potassium, nitrogen and phosphorus – otherwise known as NPK fertiliser) and little of the trace minerals.
Food Storage: much of our food is stored for long periods of time, the longer the storage the lower the nutrient content of the food.
Food refining: the further away from the original source, the fewer the nutrients. Foods like cakes, biscuits, pasta … have the least.
Poor diet: typically the western diet lacks many nutrients.
Chemicals and pollutants in the environment. The more chemicals we are exposed to the faster the bodies loss system has to work in order to expel the toxins thus using more minerals.
