Hi All, I heard recently that the trace mineral indium is supposed to dramatically increase mineral absorption. As I began to do some research on it, I discovered the supplement Cell Food (Lumina Health Products) contains indium. I've taken Cell Food in the past, but cut down recently to save money. And then I forgot completely about it for the past several weeks. Today was quite a difficult day for me, with lots of vertigo and plenty of other discomforts. Well, I dug out my partial bottle of Cell Food, took three drops, and feel a lot better in just the past five minutes. I doubt that it is the indium in it for which I was originally searching for information. But more than likely the totality of the Cell Food product. I did a little searching on indium online and came up with some interesting information. I'll paste a bit of it below for anybody who has an interest in it. It seems most of us struggle with gut/digestive/absorption problems, and many of us have low mineral counts. If indium could indeed improve our assimilation of minerals, it could be significant for some of us. I haven't researched this a lot, but did notice that some of the literature was mentioning the potential for significantly improved immune function; which is why I put this thread in the Immune Modulating section. The section below also mentions "normalization of the hypothalamus and pituitary gland". That also feels like it could be pretty significant for many of us. Anyway, I'm just getting started on exploring some of this. I would be interested in hearing what others may have learned and/or experienced regarding indium. Best, Wayne ........................................... Researchers have identified over 40 health problems which the evidence indicates are really a deficiency of the natural trace element Indium. Studies have shown that Indium helps improve the absorption of essential trace elements - such as copper, manganese, chromium, copper and zinc - in the body. Indiums most important function is normalization of the hypothalamus and pituitary gland. Indium can also reduce intra-ocular pressure (IOP) in glaucoma. A study on mice showed 42% less cancer and malignant tumors with Indium supplementation. Indium helps replenish hormone levels that naturally start to fall with age. Indium can improve short-term memory. .............................................. The following is a quote from Dr. Morton Walker's new book "INDIUM" which states: "Just one daily drop of this completely over-looked nutrient can turn back the aging clock by stimulating a cascade of youth promoting hormones..more energy..more stamina. better vision..improved bodily functions and relief from a myriad of maladies associated with aging." What is Indium? Indium is a soft silvery-metal that does not dissolve in water until compounded by laboratory personnel. It is the third heaviest molecular element known to be useful in nutrition, as Element No. 49. It is never found in food or water or in our bodies after 25 to 30 years of age. Indium is close to being the tenth most scarce of all available elements on the Periodic Table of Elements. It also connects the two largest groups of elements known to be beneficial to human nutrition.
