...biologically active minerals
Minerals incorporated within fatty acid molecules are ‘lipid-bound’. Lipid-bound minerals are the most effective mineral supplements. They are also the safest.
Lipid-bound minerals are readily absorbed, then immediately transported by red blood cells and delivered selectively to abnormal tissues and cells.
Only free unbound lipids are biologically active. Fatty acids bearing minerals are unbound and therefore biologically active. Unbound lipids attract other unbound lipids. Red blood cells have unbound lipids; they pick up lipid-bound minerals once absorbed and transport them throughout the body.
Abnormal tissues and cells also have unbound lipids, that is, free pathological lipids responsible for irreversible damage from either virulent inflammation or anaerobic metabolism. Lipid-bound minerals are almost exclusively taken up by abnormal tissues and cells, hence minerals go where they are needed.
Advantages of lipid-bound minerals:
- Fatty acids bearing minerals do not require digestion, they are readily absorbed without stomach acid, enzymes or bile salts. Their absorption is undeterred, for example, by bowel inflammation, leaky-gut or other gastrointestinal compromises.
- Selective uptake of lipid-bound minerals by cells and tissues with pathology prevents unwanted accumulations of minerals, maintaining the required ratios of minerals that promote functions and prevent pathology in healthy cells.
- Selective uptake of lipid-bound minerals can restore the cell and tissue function to normal. For example, if a calcium deficiency is a factor in breast cancer lipid-bound calcium may contribute to DNA repair capacity. Likewise, lipid-bound sulfur can soothe arthritis and lipid-bound zinc reduce benign prostate enlargement or an elevation in PSA, while lipid-bound selenium may prevent deficient cells from turning cancerous.
