Professional Testimonials

"I have recommended the 12-electrolyte concentrate to many of my clients because I find that it enhances the utility of any supplement protocol I assign to them. I especially recommend it in cases of dehydration or symptoms of electrolyte insufficiency. It works better than any other electrolyte product I have used in the past and I can recommend it to my diabetic clients because there are no ingredients that can compromise their blood sugar."
Kristine Bahr, Certified Nutritionist, Boston, MA

“I have been using this 12 electrolyte formula with my patients for years. I find the results truly amazing. Many of their symptoms disappear when the electrolyte base of the body is restored. I do not get the same results with electrolyte supplements containing just sodium and potassium. I recommend that any doctor investigate the benefits of this combination of electrolytes, as it pertains to patient condition.”
Howard Peiper. ND, Palm Springs, CA

“One of my clients was a five-year old girl with Crohn’s and colitis. Her drug therapy caused weight loss and insomnia and she had diarrhea 12 times per day. After a one-month regime of the electrolyte formula she started recovering from these symptoms and eventually had normal stools, no diarrhea, no insomnia and the blood that was in her stools seemed to disappear.”
D. Estero, Clinical Nutritionist, Florida

Minerals are important for your body to stay healthy. Your body uses minerals for many different jobs, including building bones, making hormones and regulating your heartbeat. There are two kinds of minerals: macrominerals and trace minerals. Macrominerals are minerals your body needs in larger amounts. They include calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, sodium, potassium, chloride and sulfur. Your body needs just small amounts of trace minerals. These include iron, manganese, copper, iodine, zinc, cobalt, fluoride and selenium. The best way to get the minerals your body needs is by eating a wide variety of foods. In some cases, your doctor may recommend a mineral supplement.

Our minerals come from the sea and are more effective in creating electrolytes in the body than minerals that come from the earth. The 12 selected minerals we have chosen for our electrolyte concentrates were chosen, with over 40 years of research by scientist George Earp Thomas (1910-1948) with the help of a Rockefeller grant, and his lab assistant Dr. Gerald Olarsch (1948+), to be more effective in clinical tests than any other combination.

In Electrolytes: The Spark of Life Gillian Martlew, ND writes: "It takes a week to make a batch. Combined in a specific way over a precise period, an implosion occurs, creating an energy so strong minerals change form—to crystalloids—uniquely able to filter through soft tissues directly into cells. Their potential is extraordinary—the beginning of mineral action in the body. They're electric -- they're alive."

Dr. Otto Warburg discovered that when pH is off and our bodies are running more acidic, our cells are getting less oxygen. Cancer thrives under an acid tissue pH oxygen deficient environment.

William Philpott M.D. states: As the pH of the blood goes more acid, fatty acids which are normally electro-magnetically charged on the negative side switch to positive and automatically are attracted to and begin to stick to the walls of arteries which are electro-magnetically charged on the negative side and opposites will attract.

Dr George Crile, a great surgeon, once stated “There is no such thing as natural death.  All deaths from so-called natural causes are merely the endpoint of progressive acid saturation.” 

Dr. Theodore A. Baroody  Alkalize or Die.
On the other hand, an alkali is a substance that neutralizes acid, and has an electronegative charge. Increasing alkalinity means increasing oxygen.  Since the alkaline [higher pH] blood, contains excess oxygen, the heart does not have to work as hard. Aging is accelerated because natural acid salts build up in the walls of your cells, causing them to stiffen, thicken, wrinkle and dry up. This causes cells to lose their ability to receive essential nutrients and oxygen that are required for health and healing.  By the same token, aging is slowed when acid waste is removed from the body. An infant is highly alkaline.  A typical 75-year-old is highly acidic.  Death is 100% acidity.  

The Journal of Longevity According to research published in The Journal of Longevity, declining health is the result of acid overload. This condition is caused by a diet lacking in vegetables and whole foods, which causes your tissues and organs to become acidic. When this happens you can’t properly absorb key nutrients and vitamins and you’re open to all sorts of health disasters.

A study published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism found that consuming bicarbonate can reduce biomarkers associated with bone loss and fracture. The researchers explain that fruits and vegetables are metabolized by the body into bicarbonate, which produces alkali. Meanwhile, most Americans follow a diet that contains a large amount of protein and cereal grains, which are metabolized to acid and may lead to metabolic acidosis and reduced bone mineral density.

Nutrition specialist Bess Dawson-Hughes of Tufts University led the study, which found that participants given either potassium or sodium bicarbonate over the course of three months had fewer bone loss biomarkers than those in the control group.

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, "Distilled water, being essentially mineral-free, is very aggressive, in that it tends to dissolve substances with which it is in contact. Notably, carbon dioxide from the air is rapidly absorbed, making the water acidic and even more aggressive. Many metals are dissolved by distilled water."

Zoltan P Rona MD MSc. Water filtered through reverse osmosis tends to be neutral and is acceptable for regular use provided minerals are supplemented. Those who supplement their distilled water intake with trace minerals are not as deficient. Water filtered through a solid charcoal filter is slightly alkaline. Ozonation of this charcoal filtered water is ideal for daily drinking. Longevity is associated with the regular consumption of hard water (high in minerals). Disease and early death is more likely to be seen with the long term drinking of distilled water.

National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health. The main location that absorption of nutrients takes place is the small intestine, according to the Southern Illinois University School of Medicine. This plays a major role in the balance of electrolytes and water in the body. Electrolytes are essential minerals in the blood that carry an electric charge, according to Medline Plus, an online service of the National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health. The small intestine contains muscle folds known as villi that help increase the surface area of the small intestine for absorption. Nutrients are absorbed through the villi and transferred directly into the bloodstream. The ileocecal valve is responsible for passing digested materials into the large intestine.

Merck Manual:  The level of any electrolyte in the blood can become too high or too low. The main electrolytes in the blood are sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, chloride, phosphate, and carbonate. Most commonly, problems occur when the level of sodium, potassium, or calcium is abnormal. Often, electrolyte levels change when water levels in the body change. To treat a low level of some electrolytes, such as sodium or potassium, doctors usually advise eating foods rich in the electrolyte or taking supplements.

Louis Pasteur from the late 1800s states that disease comes from germs which invade the body from the outside. Yet the Acid-Alkaline theory found that when the body is in healthy alkaline balance, germs are unable to get a foothold.

Marcelle Pick OB/GYN NP. Protein — particularly in the form of red meats — requires huge amounts of alkaline minerals for complete digestive processing. When the system goes looking for the alkalinity needed to offset the acid load, it looks first to the minerals currently in the digestive tract. If it fails to find alkaline nourishment there, it draws on the calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and potassium minerals stored in our bones.

Pub Med One Cause of chronic fatigue syndrome is electrolyte disturbances which include sometimes permanent changes in cell membranes 'and the ability to pass electrolytes.

U.S. Senate Document #264, (1936), “It is bad news to learn from our leading authorities that 99 percent of the American people are deficient in minerals.” It continues, “Our physical well-being is more directly dependent upon the minerals we take into our systems than upon the calories or vitamins, or upon the precise proportion of starch, protein or carbohydrates we consume?”

Merck Manual:  Minerals are necessary for the normal functioning of the body's cells. The body needs large quantities of calcium, chloride, magnesium, phosphate, potassium, and sodium. These minerals are called macro minerals. Bone, muscle, heart, and brain function depends on these minerals. The body needs small quantities of chromium, copper, fluoride, iodine, iron, manganese, molybdenum, selenium, and zinc. These minerals are called trace minerals. Except for chromium, all trace minerals are incorporated into enzymes or hormones required in body processes (metabolism). Chromium helps the body keep blood sugar levels normal.

Lynn Hinderliter CN, LDN  Water is considered neutral at a ph of 7. Anything under that is increasingly acid, anything over - increasingly alkaline. The human body operates optimally at a pH that varies from 6.8 to 7.5, depending on the time of day: pH tends to peak at 6 o'clock in the evening, and at noon, with the lowest point coming at 6 o'clock in the morning. These readings represent homeostasis, or balance. When the pH is operating within these normal parameters, cells can take up nutrients as and when needed, depending only on availability, and can discharge wastes efficiently.

Merck Manual:  Berkow, R., “Acid-base Balance”,
The blood has a very narrow pH range: 7.35 to 7.45. If the pH of your blood goes outside that range even just a little… wham; the functioning of your organs is compromised. If the pH of your blood strays too far from that acceptable range for too long, your body will go into shock…then coma…then death.

Charles Northern, M.D., gov’t consultant
Vitamins control the body’s appropriation of minerals. In the absence of minerals, vitamins have no function. Lacking vitamins, the system can make some us of the minerals, but lacking minerals the vitamins are useless.

Dr. Gerald Olarsch
Minerals must get into the cell to benefit the body. The 12-electrolyte combination is assimilated 100% by the cell.  The key trace elements are those that are considered essential because when a deficiency occurs, results consistently show an impairment of a specific bodily function from optimal to sub-optimal. When supplementation is given, the impairment is reduced or eliminated. The key minerals are essential and the body utilizes only what it needs. Supplements containing 50 or more minerals taxes the body. The body has the ability to use the trace elements as a key to unlock the rest of the minerals from food. By taking too many minerals you may unbalance your body to the extent havoc will be created. Doctors have trouble diagnosing an illness which is caused by the fact that you are taking too many minerals and unbalancing your body. Too many minerals actually compete with each other and don’t allow the key minerals to form life-giving electrolytes.

EPA.gov. Pure distilled water would have tested neutral, but pure distilled water is not easily obtained because carbon dioxide in the air around us mixes, or dissolves, in the water, making it somewhat acidic. The pH of distilled water is between 5.6 and 7.

Researchers in Germany found that "acid-base status affects renal magnesium losses, irrespectively of magnesium intake." This means that besides not eating enough foods high in magnesium, an acid load in the body could be another factor that contributes to a magnesium deficiency condition.

American Medical Association. The American Medical Association's Encyclopedia of Medicine. Ed. Charles B. Clayman. Random House: 1989, p. 605.In fact, "many vital body processes depend on the movement of ions across cell membranes."

Schauss, Alex. Minerals and Human Health: The Rationale for Optimal and Balanced Trace Element Levels. Life Science Press: 1995, pp. 1,3. The form of different minerals also plays a key role in how well they are transported through the circulatory system and the aqueous microenvironment of the cells. They can also protect the body from the effects of toxic minerals. Minerals should be ionic to be readily absorbed through transfer in the small intestine.

Rosenberg, I.H., Solomans, N.W. Absorption and Malabsorption of Mineral"Insofar as minerals in the diet are often bound to proteins, complexed with organic molecules in food, or otherwise imbedded in the matrix of food-stuffs, the mechanical processes of mastication, dissolution, dispersion, and often digestion are important preparative steps to absorption. Moreover, at the conclusion of the aforementioned reductive processes, minerals generally emerge in the intestinal lumen as charged ions , e.g. Fe**, Zn**, PO4, SeO

American Medical Association. Encyclopedia of Medicine. Minerals that are absorbed in their ionic form are in true liquid solution and have either positive or negative charges. They also have unique properties that distinguish them from each other and allow them to freely take part in biochemical communication throughout the body. These communications help nutrients move to those areas of the body that are in most need of their help. "Imbalances of any of these ions or certain trace ions in the body . . . can lead to dysfunction in the conduction of electrical messages. This dysfunction quickly leads to a general body disturbance and loss of ability to maintain somewhat stable internal conditions."

 Watts, David L. Nutrient Interrelationships: Minerals-Vitamins-Endocrines. Reprinted from Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine. Vol. 5, Number 1. 1990, p.1.Minerals and trace minerals act as catalysts for other nutrients, vitamins, hormones and neurological functions .

Alexander G. Schauss, Ph.D. “Trace minerals do not exist by themselves but in relationship to one another. Too much of one trace element can lead to imbalances in others resulting in disease, rather than the absence of disease. Most trace elements need to be in ionic form to be well absorbed in the intestine.”

Documented in 1936 by Dr. Northen in Senate Document 264. Because of soil depletion. Soil depletion occurs when chemical fertilizers kill the microorganisms in the soil that produce minerals for the plants. When an organic humus bed is destroyed, plants grown in that soil lack minerals. Without key trace minerals, the body cannot utilize amino acids, fats and vitamins properly. Minerals are indispensable to every organ, gland and muscle in the body. Without minerals, life cannot exist as they are the stimulus that produces energy and are required for all life functions.

Linus Pauling, PhD winner of 2 Nobel prizes “All diseases of humanity can be attributed to the lack of minerals in our bodies. You can trace every sickness, every disease, and every ailment, to a mineral deficiency.”

Dr. Bernard Jensen writes in his introduction to Gillian Martlew's book,  "Electrolytes the Spark of Life":  "The point when minerals become alive is when electrolytes split. All cellular structures become alive through electrolytic activity. Life begins with electrolytes. Trace minerals carry the life force in our bodies more than any other substance."

In "The Biochemic Handbook", medical doctors Chapman and Perry write: "The inorganic constituents of the cell, these cell salts are the vital portions of the body, the workers, the builders; the water and organic substances [proteins, fats, vitamins, carbs, etc] forming the remainder of the organism are simply inert matter used by these salts in building the cells of the body."

Leslie Klevay, M.D., Sc.D., Grand Forks Human Nutrition Research Center. "One of copper's best-understood roles so far is its function in the cross-linkage of collagen and elastin. Copper helps knit together these two very important connective tissues, which are used throughout the body to build other tissues."

Jeanne Freeland-Graves R.D., Ph.D., professor of nutrition at the University of Texas at Austin. Manganese is an essential part of biochemical reactions that affect bone cartilage, brain function and energy supply, explains Jeanne Freeland-Graves

Scottish chemist Thomas Graham discovered that certain substance could be separated from other substances using dialysis. He gave the name colloid to substances that do not diffuse through a semi permeable membrane and the name crystalloid to those which do diffuse and which are therefore in true solution. Electrolytes are electrical conductors in which current is carried. And since our bodies are electrically charged electrolytic solution is a quick, effective way to deliver minerals to our body's cells.
