Maybe the plants containing those minerals would stick to the magnet as well.

So what's the chemical difference between plant based and rock/metal based?
ALXD1974 (4 years ago)
Plant based minerals are 10.000 times smaller from rock minerals used in supplements so the absorption and the way the body can use them is much different.

is Centrum multi vitamin ok? does it get absorbed into the blood? please help. and if it doesn't, which one does?

talia841951 NO!

Hi Dr. Berg, I want to start taking food supplements and I don't wanna make the mistake of buying the metallic ones that go out through the urine before they have a chance to do anything. How do I know the right ones to get? Thank you.

Eat your vegetables...and don't mess around with pills!

may be because the iron that they added to the food is not compined naturally to other parts of the food >> like in apples for ex... may be the iron that is added is still penefit. excuse my english because i am from egypt and speak arabic

Please point the way to plant zinc.

+stuckonthefarm  Not too hard to swallow, thanks much!
stuckonthefarm (4 years ago)
spinach, mushrooms, wheat germ and pumpkin seeds are some of the higher zinc containing plants as I understand

Thank God I found you today!!  Your you tube videos with all of the valuable information is priceless!!!  Thank you for your dedication to understanding the human body and how we can affect it.  You are truly helping so many people.  Thank you!!

Yes, long known this one, so true! I don't think wee can tell much difference until we start cleaning up our body, detoxing, and just better food choices over a bit of time. It's not an overnight happening. Stuff is embedded. I'm more aware, quickly feel the effects things. Personally, feel better know getting my nutrients from plants. Very few supplements. Earth is the best pharmacy. Sometimes we need to take sup's to help for a while, but they are just there to help anyway, not to live off of. That's what the Pharma-Corps want, life long patents - dependent.

Just asking - What is so wrong with taking iron, it is very natural and our bodies are full of it surely?  xx
Catherine Mendel (1 year ago)
Your blood has iron in it...but you don't get stuck to magnets....OBVIOUSLY it's in a different form.... :)

Some of that metallic iron IS absorbed into your body. What is the problem with it? Is there any evidence that the iron is harmful in any way?
Eric Berg (4 years ago)
+Greg Cook I think your reference for evidence will be in basic biochemistry books related to nutrition, understanding the difference between ionic and covalent bonding, versus some research study.
SapereAude1490 (4 years ago)
I dunno. There seems to be a lot of metallic iron to be so easily attracted by the magnet. Maybe too much. And Eric is probably talking about iron that's a part of a protein - kinda like hemoglobin. I suppose it's easier for our bodies to take in already oxidized iron from proteins, than it is to oxidize it by itself. However, the benefit of taking already oxidized iron doesn't seem all that big. Either way, we need more evidence.
GreginND (4 years ago)
+Eric Berg While I have a lot of skepticism about vitamin supplements and agree that we should be getting our nutrients mostly from whole foods, not processed foods like cereal. I take issue with your claims that lack evidence. Your video says that you "believe" and that it is "your opinion" that reduced iron is somehow worse than other forms of iron. But the only "evidence" you present is that cereal contains reduced metallic iron. What evidence do you have to make you believe it is worse? Metallic iron (Fe(0)) is easily dissolved in the acidic stomach juices to forms of iron that are absorbed by the body. And these are as easy if not more readily absorbed than Fe(II) or Fe(III) that are found in some plants. What bonds are you talking about breaking? And what the heck are synthetic rocks?
Eric Berg (4 years ago)
You may absorb some, but the problem is the size and how they are bonded. Plant based are 15,000 smaller and easy to break bonds. Of course in medicine, a molecule is the same as any other molecule, and synthetic is the same as natural and plant based are the same as elemental. This leads to having lots of companies create vitamins and minerals in synthetic rock based. The next time you are at GNC, hold a bottle of multiminerals and notice how heavy they are - just a bottle of rocks and metals. I have personally seen clients come in taking these and when I switch them, they start getting results. If you also look at the side-effects of taking minerals, esp. iron, they always use elemental iron in the studies, the same thing with bad effects from taking vitamins - they use synthetics.

Dang this is crazy, I seen the corn flakes video that was pretty crazy as well. I do not know why people have to be so ignorant to truth, but just dive right into myths and lies. It is the norm now to be an idiot, and its odd now to be intelligent, and aware, you are labeled a conspiracy theorist. I accept conspiracy theorist over Ignorance, because just because you dont know doesn't make it BLISS! Ignorance is not bliss,,
Stan Rodgers (4 years ago)
Not sure I agree with your view or the way you expressed it in this video.  Elements are in larger or smaller package or particle sizes.  That is the important part of the source.  Those in plant tissue are smaller thus more easily transported through our digestive system into our bodies.  Also there is the issue of elements being bonded to other elements altering the chemical availability.  The minerals in plants are in a form that we are much more suited to digesting and adsorbing.  But iron is iron and is always metallic.
Steven Blackburn (4 years ago)
Just how much freaking iron are you saying we need if its "natural" as you are proposing.. that was ONE wheat cereal, and he scooped up what looks like 45% of the cereal with that magnet? Sorry I will stick to REAL food and if I want to eat grass Ill go mow my lawn throw it in the blender and add aspertame to it myself lhahahahahha Just saying man.. no way thats natural.
