Plant minerals are different than metallic minerals. Their size and molecular weight is much smaller than metallic minerals and in most cases the plant minerals are attached to a different molecule even though they possess the same name.
A plant mineral is several thousand, to as much as a hundred thousand times smaller than the smallest metallic mineral. A plant derived mineral is less than 0.00001 micron in size or 1/10,000th the size of a red blood cell. Their small size gives them an enormous surface area with an electrical charge.
Plant minerals are much easier to assimilate or absorb than metallic minerals. Clay, silt and hydrophobic metallic minerals, on average, are considerably larger than hydrophilic acids or hydrophilic plant minerals. Pure plant minerals can be pumped through a pharmaceutical grade, .15-micron (absolute) filter.
Most metallic minerals will not pass through this small membrane. Only the water passes through. A water molecule is only slightly smaller than hydrophilic complexes. Aluminum, arsenic, lead and nickel are minerals found in nearly all food we eat.
As elemental minerals, if ingested in sufficient quantity they would be extremely toxic or fatal. But, these minerals found in foods are no longer the same as metallic minerals. Plant derived minerals are 100% absorbable. If you drank even 2 grains of free iodine, it would kill you. But, in its plant-derived form, iodine is not only harmless--it is beneficial.
