A New Paradigm in Mineral Supplementation
Eidon Ionic Liquid Minerals utilise a new proprietary scientific technology delivering angstrom-sized particles previously only found in plants. This means they are 100% bio-available, assimilated at a cellular level and are not dependant on the digestive or enzymatic functions of the body. It also means any excess is easily ejected, avoiding toxicity and systemic deposition. Easy to take and administer, Eidon Ionic Minerals are made from natural sources and contain no fillers, additives or preservatives.
- Angstrom-Sized Water-Soluble Minerals
Eidon Ionic Minerals utilize a new proprietary scientific technology that transforms insoluble minerals into angstrom-sized particles. Previously, only plants, with help from the sun and organisms in the soil, had the ability to reduce minerals to angstrom sized particles.
- The Body’s Ability to Use a Mineral is Primarily a Matter of Size and Solubility
Eidon Minerals are ionic, colloidal, angstrom-sized. They are the most efficient way to obtain supplemental minerals as they are easily absorbed and utilised by the body. Eidon Ionic Minerals will absorb sublingually and, through cell osmosis, be transported throughout the body.
- No Digestion Required!
Because these water-soluble minerals are not dependant on the digestive or enzymatic functions of the body, they work extraordinarily well for older people and others with diminished body system abilities.
- “First, Do No Harm” – Hippocrates
The extremely small particle size means Eidon Ionic Minerals pose little, if any, danger of overdose toxicity as the body can self-balance by ejecting the excess nutrient. Unlike traditional mineral preparations, they are not deposited in various parts of the body, potentially building up and contributing to diseases such as kidney stones, bone spurs and hardening of the arteries.
- Purity You Can See, Taste & Feel
Eidon Ionic Minerals are made from natural sources, and do not contain any synthetics, fillers, additives or preservatives. Compare this to most traditional pill and capsule supplements that have been processed with intense pressure, heat, paraffin coating and fillers.
- Heavy Metal Detoxification
Because Eidon Ionic Minerals accomplish cell assimilation and systemic delivery, they are antagonistic to and flush out toxic heavy metals. The perfectly suited dose is easy to administer.
- Quality Assured
Eidon Ionic Minerals are produced in a state of the art manufacturing facility which includes a class 10,000 research and development laboratory as well as a class 10,000 area for the bottling of liquid products. All other production areas are state of the art and have been inspected by both FDA and USDA inspectors.
Eidon minerals represent our commitment to sourcing the very best food supplements that combine the wisdom of nature with the latest cutting edge technologies.
The Fundamental Role of Minerals
Most of us think of minerals as being necessary for strong bones and teeth, but minerals do much more. In addition to providing us with shape and support for our skeleton, minerals are the “spark of life.” Minerals are essential in the diet and each plays unique and often multi-factorial roles as they act at all levels of the body – cells, tissues, organs, and the whole organism. All of our body processes depend upon the action of minerals to activate the enzymes which perform bodily functions we take for granted.
Without proper mineral ratios we could not set into motion the properties and functions of enzymes, vitamins or amino acids. These elemental components are responsible for every activity in every cell of our bodies. Cellular functions require a proper chain of events that start with minerals. Without the proper mineral we could not twitch an eyelid or form a thought.
The Key Ingredients of Life
Each and every mineral that exists in the earth also exists in us and in all living things. Quantum physics shares the philosophy that we are really one with all things. Just as the earth must maintain its balance to function optimally, our bodies need balance, too. When given the right materials in the right form (from nature) the body can do amazing things to promote its own health. The earth naturally gives us minerals via water and food. Today, with current farming practices that deplete soil of necessary minerals and water supplies that have been polluted and poisoned, our population has become mineral malnourished. Eidon has taken the lead to provide you with minerals the way nature intended. We use a proprietary process that transforms pure mineral crystals into a fully hydrated, 100% bioavailable liquid ionic supplement and gives you purity that you can see, taste and feel.
The Magic of Minerals
The only thing that will catalyse or activate an enzyme is a mineral. While very difficult to measure within each cell (in fact this capability still eludes our present scientific measurement technology) it can be assumed that most cells require a full complement of all minerals to function correctly. We do know that some organs require higher concentrations of certain minerals.
The Bottom Line
In a nutshell, you can have all the air, water, protein, carbohydrates, fats, and vitamins you want, but you won’t be a fully functioning organism without a complete balance of minerals. Without minerals all the other components of the body will be unable to function properly.

|FAQ with Rick Wagner, M.S., C.N. – CEO, Eidon INC.01. What are water-soluble liquid minerals?|
Water-soluble minerals are unique from other mineral supplements because they utilize a new proprietary scientific technology that transforms insoluble minerals (metals) into angstrom-sized water-soluble particles. An angstrom is 1/10,000th of a micron, which is a millionth of a meter. Previously, only plants, with help from the sun and organisms in the soil, had the ability to reduce minerals (metals) to angstrom-sized particles.The ability of a mineral to be utilized by the body is primarily a matter of size. If you get the particle size of the mineral small enough, you not only get the mineral into the body (absorption), but you also accomplish cell assimilation, which is the key to fully utilizing the benefits of mineral nutrients. When held in the mouth under the tongue, the water-soluble minerals will absorb sublingually and, through cell osmosis, be transported throughout the body. By bypassing the hydrochloric acid of the lower stomach and the other digestive systems of the body, key mineral nutrients are delivered directly to the cells of the body. These products can be found in the perspiration of individuals within 30 minutes of consumption, which attests to the product’s ability to cell assimilate and move throughout the body.
Because these water-soluble minerals are not dependent on the digestive or enzymatic functions of the body, they work extraordinarily well for older people and others with diminished body system abilities. They are also easier for children and older people to swallow than pills or capsules. The extremely small particle size also provides an avenue for the mineral to leave the body if it is not needed at the time without toxic buildup occurring.
02. How are water-soluble minerals different from colloidal minerals?
We believe the criteria for proper utilization and absorption of all minerals, vitamins and other nutrients is dependent on their size and absorbability.
Colloids are the minerals found in the soil in metallic particle form. Most minerals are toxic in colloid form because they can build up in the body, causing health problems. But, when a plant grows, it absorbs these colloidal (non-soluble) minerals and changes them into an ionic/water-soluble form – the proper bio-available form for use by the human body.
A colloidal solution is not the same as water-soluble. A colloidal solution consists of mineral particles that are suspended between water molecules. One of the simplest examples of a colloidal solution is water that comes from copper pipes. Many of us have tasted water coming from a copper pipe and noted its distinct flavour. The copper particles are simply suspended in the water. The solution is, by definition, a colloidal solution. If dehydrated, the copper particles will be left behind. When testing a colloidal solution, you can shine a flashlight or laser through the suspension and see the mineral particles refracting the light. This is known as the “Tyndall Effect”.
The water-soluble minerals, on the other hand, are in an extremely small, angstrom size (10,000 times smaller than colloidal particles) ionic* form bonded with ultra-pure water so the two are inseparable. The process is similar to what a plant does with the minerals in the soil, breaking them down into a usable cell-ready form.
When minerals are truly water-soluble, they provide significant health benefits superior to any colloidal mineral solution without the possible side effect of building toxicity over time.
*An ion is a particle, either as a single atom or as a group of atoms, which carries an electrical charge. There are two types of ions: positive and negative. The positive ions are called cations and the negative ions are called anions. It is this electrical charge that is an inherent property of each individual mineral and is a property by which the body recognizes individual minerals in the body.
03. How are water-soluble minerals better than pill or capsule form?
No matter what the body takes in, it has to “liquefy” it in order to be able to use it. The challenge with most traditional pill and capsule supplements is that they usually have been processed with intense pressure, heat, paraffin coatings, and fillers. This “complex” nutrient form is difficult for the body to break down as it is not in the desired form the body needs. Just because a substance may be present in a compound, it does not mean it can be used. For example, you can breathe hydrogen or oxygen, but you can’t breathe water. Although water contains the individual elements of oxygen and hydrogen, they are not in a form the body can use for breathing. The same analogy is true in supplementation. Calcium carbonate is not calcium and chromium picolinate is not chromium. Although a substance may be present in a compound, it does not mean it can be used.
Body absorption of the desired elemental mineral from pills and capsules is often less than 10%, with cell assimilation being almost immeasurable. In addition, pills and capsules require significant digestion before any type of effective absorption can take place. Due to consumption of foods heavily laden with preservatives, drinking highly acidic beverages such as soda and coffee, exposure to environmental toxins, as well as the normal aging process, the digestive capacity of most individuals is significantly compromised. Therefore, mineral supplements provided in pill/capsule/tablet form provide fractional benefits to the body at best due to their challenges with both absorption and assimilation in the body. Even colloidal products are not in a pure design. Colloidal products are simply a suspension of small metallic “filings” in water.
04. Why is particle size important to absorption?
Chelated and colloidal particles are far too large for cell assimilation in the body. These particles will be caught up in the blood stream and subsequently deposited, building up in various parts of the body, contributing to diseases such as kidney stones, bone spurs and hardening of the arteries. Toxic buildup of colloidal minerals such as copper, lead, and aluminum is known as heavy-metal poisoning.
The body’s ability to utilize a mineral is primarily a matter of size and solubility. If the mineral particles can be reduced down small enough, they can then be absorbed by the body without the need for them to be broken down into a less usable form through the process of digestion. The most important issue for absorption of a mineral is making sure it is in its ionic* form. The dominant factor is that the mineral must be freed from whatever matrix it is contained within so it can be recognized and taken up by the body. Being in its ionic form helps the body recognize and use the minerals.
05. What are some guidelines to determine if a mineral solution is truly water-soluble?
If the mineral solution is dehydrated, it should grow crystals rather than returning to a powder form metallic particles. The mineral solution must also pass the “Tyndall Effect” test. When a laser beam is directed though the solution, no light will be refracted and thus seen by the eye.
06. Can I take too much of a water-soluble mineral?
As with all supplements, more is not always better. Any compound taken in extreme excess can be unhealthy for the body. There cannot be a blanket statement to cover all compounds, or even minerals and vitamins. Each respective ingredient has its own “biochemical uniqueness.” The RDA (Recommended Daily Allowance) of a nutrient is a suggested maximum amount to be taken each day.
When analyzing the toxicity of a product or material, it is important to recall what contributes to toxicity in the body:
1) The inherent properties of the material ingested
2) The dose of the material
3) The rate of absorption by the body
4) The ability of the material to accumulate in the body
5) The rate and ability of the material to be excreted
Taken in moderation, these water-soluble nutrients, which have an angstrom-sized ionic particle (10,000 times smaller than colloidal-sized particles), pose little, if any, danger of overdose toxicity because the body can self-balance by ejecting the excess nutrient out of the body through the urine. And, because of their bioavailability, the dosage amount is less as the entire dosage is usable by the body. Remember, body absorption of the desired elemental mineral from pills and capsules is often less than 10%. So, for example, if you take a 500 mg. capsule, your body may only be able to use 50 mg of it at the most.
By contrast, colloidal particles are too large (colloidal particles are 10,000 times larger than angstrom-sized particles) to be assimilated into the cells or easily excreted by the body, allowing some particles get deposited in various parts of the body, building up and contributing to diseases such as kidney stones, bone spurs and hardening of the arteries.
We suggest following the recommended dosages provided on each product. Larger doses should be taken under the advice of a healthcare professional. There are also some minerals that are very powerful and should be taken carefully. Iron and selenium are two elements that should be taken in small doses unless otherwise advised by a health care professional.
07. Do water-soluble minerals react with pharmaceutical medicines?
Mineral supplementation has been very safe. However, specific drugs may have specific guidelines for use. It is recommended that, before starting any mineral or nutritional program, you check with your healthcare professional for possible interactions. However, we have seen a positive side effect with supplements. As mineral deficiencies are corrected, the need for pharmaceutical drugs that mask deficiency symptoms may no longer be needed.
08. How long will it take before I see results?*
With nutrition, we are giving the body what it needs to heal itself and rebuild itself anew and this takes time. To build a better body, we have to wait on the natural turnover of the body’s cells. A blood cell lasts 60-120 days. In 3-4 months your whole blood supply is completely replaced. In 6 months almost all the proteins in your body die and are replaced, even the DNA of your genes. In a year all your bones and even the enamel of your teeth is replaced, constructed entirely out of the nutrients you eat. Think of it this way: if you take a neglected houseplant and start feeding and watering it, the leaves may perk up a bit from the improved nutrition. But you have to wait for the old leaves to die off and new leaves to grow before you get a really healthy plant.
09. How are these mineral products manufactured?
These water-soluble mineral products are produced in a state of the art manufacturing facility which includes a class 10,000 research and development laboratory as well as a class 10,000 area for the bottling of liquid products. All other production areas are state of the art and have been inspected by both FDA and USDA inspectors.
Imitating the intricate processes found in nature, these minerals, which are pharmaceutical grade and derived from natural sources, are made using a new, highly technical, proprietary technology to create plant-sized mineral particles and combine them with ultra-pure activated water. These elemental mineral ions are able to exist in a perfect polar and ionic/water-soluble form.
The purer the water the more efficiently minerals are activated into their electrically charged ionic state. These products use water that is purified at the company’s own government-inspected and certified manufacturing facility using a unique proprietary process which encompasses intensified reverse osmosis and UV light.
The purified water is then treated with a negative magnetic field at multiple times the strength of the earth’s own magnetic field in a process called Negative Field Activation. Water normally has polar bonds, which in the presence of a negative field, are manipulated and changed by that field – it is a process that “structures” and further purifies the water. This results in water that has unique characteristics – it is more fluid, a better solvent, has altered solubility and surface tension, whose polar bonds are at somewhat of a different degree than usual water, and whose pH characteristics are different. In fact, the water becomes alkalizing due to the propensity to pull oxygen into the cell because oxygen is influenced by the magnetic field. This further results in a state where the minerals placed in this ultra-purified water are ionized more fully and can be transported into the body cells more efficiently.
The product label states the minimal dose recommended maintaining an individual’s daily requirements. It is based on an individual weighing 100-150 lbs. The amounts appear small because these water-soluble minerals are approximately 100% bio-available and are assimilated by the body. As such, smaller and safer dosages are able to be used.
10. What’s the difference between Eidon Minerals and Trace Minerals?
Eidon’s Multiple Mineral has been formulated to deliver specific minerals known to be essential for daily health in a purified water and silica base. It is the only silica based liquid multiple mineral supplement available at any price. To this base we then add the most well-known essential minerals necessary on a day-to-day basis. These other minerals are not added haphazardly, but in specific amounts and balances as one would find in human tissue. Our formula reflects the most current understanding for optimal balance in a mineral formula. The macro-minerals, calcium and magnesium, are kept in a 1:1 ratio to correct the erroneous dietary trend of high calcium and low magnesium intake. The delicate triad of zinc, copper and manganese are kept in a specific ratio so as not to imbalance each other. Higher and equal levels of selenium and chromium compliment the zinc, copper and manganese ratio. Boron is utilized with silica in proportion to calcium and magnesium. Iron and copper are included with careful attention to the zinc triad. Iodine, potassium and sulphur put finishing touches on the formula within the current acceptability guidelines for tissue mineral balance.
There are many more mineral and gas elements identified on the Periodic Chart of the Elements. The essentiality of each has not been established to the point where we deemed them necessary to include in our formulation. As the essentiality of these other trace elements is established they will be included in our formula.
On the other side of the spectrum are multiple mineral blends derived from sources the manufacturer feels offers a complete spectrum of minerals. These sources include ocean water, water from inland salt lakes (Great Salt Lake and The Dead Sea) or ancient organic plant deposits through which water has been passed through. Trace Minerals derives their multiple from The Great Salt Lake-a body of water that does not support life. This may or may not provide the proper blend of minerals for human use and may or may not contain elements that are required by the human body.
It is my belief, that the optimal blend for a multiple mineral supplement is an unknown, which is truly frustrating. We do know that minerals are required on a daily basis and they are absolutely essential for maintaining health. Some minerals are more obviously utilized by everyone, and these are the minerals we have included in the Eidon Multiple Mineral blend. Our Multiple mineral was scientifically formulated to include minerals that can be safely used by everyone without question. More is not always better when it comes to the delicate balance of the human body.
