In the past, TERRAMIN® has been called, Cal-MinTM and also ION-MIN®. These are the names used for this unique edible clay. It was the first commercial edible clay deposit discovered in the United States in the 1940's. It was initially named, "Cal-Min" in 1946, and later changed to "ION-MIN" and then TERRAMIN in 1998. Other associated brands were brought to market in the following years. The name changes indicate the evolution of the many applications for people, animals and the environment. This Premium Montmorillonite Clay deposit was originally found at a mine source located in the Colorado River Basin in the South Western part of the United States. The current product line-up includes various grades of this uniqe clay for many important applications. New batches are being processed and the same lab protocols are used in determining the quality of each batch. Mother Earth is very generous in her variety of offerings and the future looks great as these batches are mined.
Why the name changes? The history of TERRAMIN is a fascinating one, a journey fraught with many perils and pitfalls for the pioneers that fought to keep this natural product available for those for which it has proven to be so helpful. Many of the pitfalls could have prohibited TERRAMIN from being available today had it not been for the hard work and perseverance of people such as Harries Hebbard, Don and Alicia Crawford and Ray Kong. Time is the ultimate test for all things of real value and the fact that this clay product, by any name, has been used successfully since 1946. The edible minerals in TERRAMIN are time tested and have a proven efficacy. This rare "Premium Montmorillonite Clay" is found only at a specific and unique location in the U.S..
"What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet"; the words of wisdom spoken by a very young Juliet in the writings of William Shakespeare reveal a Universal truth; what does a name really mean? Would you agree that it is more important to consider the composition of which the name represents, rather than just the name? This truth is revealed again when the product, which is now named, "Terramin" is studied. This name was coined as "terra" the Latin word for earth and "min", the abbreviation for mineral. This rare and special compound in its unique form with its special properties is what makes it work.
TERRAMIN delivers a superior detoxification because of its foundation in molecular structure, fully formed crystal lattice structures with huge surface areas and elevated Cation exchange capacity (CEC). These properties are important in a clay’s ability to draw out and eliminate toxins stored in a body.
TERRAMIN provides superior performance in delivering macro, micro and trace mineral nutrients to the body from the variety of minerals it contains. The minute clay particle size is key to the adsorption process within the body. Internal organs make daily demands within our body and to properly maintain it; we must supplement daily for our overall well-being. TERRAMIN contains the necessary benefits to meet these demands.
If you are considering trying an "edible clay", and the manufacturer of the clay cannot or will not provide to you the proper compound specifications of their clay in clear terms, such as a certified laboratory analysis, then it is not advisable to consume it.
