"The Panaca Montmorillonite deposit
is superior to all other known deposits. All of the other deposits
of which I am aware, were formed by volcanic action which means
that most of the elements present are in the inorganic state, and
are not really assimilated by animals and humans. Inorganic
minerals such as dolomite, ferrous sulfate, zinc gluconate and
calcium gluconate when ingested, must be made soluble in the
stomach. At the same time protein is hydrolyzed into amino acids.
When both are done, and conditions are right, the mineral is
chelated by the amino acids, meaning suspended between two or more
amino acids. Once chelated the mineral can be metabolized."
