About Deep Ocean Minerals
Whole Earth & Sea Pure Food Deep Ocean Minerals (DOM) is an all-natural mineral concentrate in a balance that is natural to the body. It contains over 70 essential minerals and trace elements, including calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, boron, and iodine, that give structure to our organs, tissues, and bones, and help maintain fluid balance, pH balance, and membrane permeability.
DOM is a 100% natural and sustainable product harvested from deep ocean water that is drawn from a depth of 662 m in a pristine location protected by steep mountains. Minerals and trace elements are extracted using a patented production process and fortified with fresh kelp extract to raise the iodine level to 75 mcg per teaspoon. The natural liquid and ionized form increases absorption and bioavailability to the body’s cells.
This patented production process uses sustainable and environmentally friendly techniques that ensure direct access to deep ocean water that is free from particles. Kelp is also sustainably harvested from the coastal waters of British Columbia and rigorously tested to ensure that it is contaminant free. Deep ocean water is characterized by its cleanliness and mineral density. It is a safe, pure, and infinite resource for replenishing the body’s soluble minerals and electrolytes.
Recommended use: Source of electrolytes. A factor in the maintenance of good health. Helps the body metabolize carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. Helps in the development and maintenance of bones and teeth, in the maintenance of proper muscle function, and in the function of the thyroid gland.
Recommended adult dose: Mix ½ tsp to 1 tsp (2.5 mL to 5 mL) daily with water or other beverages (e.g., milk, soya, tea, coffee, juice, etc.) or use as directed by a health care practitioner.
Cautions: Consult a health care practitioner prior to use if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Keep out of the reach of children.
Each ½ teaspoon (2.5 mL) contains: Ocean Mineral Concentrate (seawater*) 3034 mg Calcium 50 mcg Magnesium 100 mg Potassium 20 mg Sodium 40 mg Boron 125 mcg Iodine (potassium iodide, kelp [whole]) 75 mcg
*Contains over 70 naturally occurring trace minerals from a nature reserve such as:chloride, iodine, barium, chromium, copper, iron, lanthanum, lithium, manganese, phosphorus, rubidium, selenium, silicon, silver, strontium, sulfur, thorium, titanium, tungsten, vanadium, yttrium, and zinc.
Are the vitamins and minerals fermented, USP vitamins, or a combination of both?A
Most of the vitamins and minerals in the multivitamin formulas as well as Bone Structure formula are from the fresh farm ingredients or from food sources such as organic algae (calcium), lichen (vitamin D3), sunflower oil (vitamin E), natto (vitamin K2), Indian gooseberry (vitamin C), selenium (sprouted garlic), Dunaliella salina (beta carotene), kelp (iodine), marigold flowers (lutein), and tomatoes (lycopene). Our proprietary formula also utilizes activated forms of vitamins to ensure that meaningful levels of key nutrients are delivered in the bioactive whole-food formula.
Does Whole Earth & Sea use pesticides on their crops?A
The Factors Farms crops are only fertilized with compost and nitrogen-rich sea plants, and are meticulously cared for by hand. No synthetic pesticides (or even permissible organic pesticides) are ever used.
How do Whole Earth & Sea formulas compare to other whole-food supplements?A
Several companies market versions of what they refer to as “whole-food” vitamins. Most of the nutrients in supplements marketed as whole-food are produced by mixing (USP) vitamins and minerals with Saccharomyces cerevisiae (baker’s yeast) sugar or molasses in a big tank. After some amount of time has passed (usually 12 – 24 hours), the yeast is killed off and the material is dried off. By contrast, Whole Earth & Sea formulas use Farm Fresh Factors™ as well as other whole food sources and raw processes these nutrient-dense plants using our proprietary EnviroSimplex® technology, yielding a concentrated biomass of bioenergetic vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and phytonutrients.
How do you ensure plants from other growers are safe, pure, and organic?A
All our raw materials are lab-tested based on ISURATM product certification standards for the natural health supplement and food industries. We use mass spectrometry and other test methods to ensure that the plant material is non-GMO, organically grown and free of solvents, pesticides, and other contaminants.
