SierraSil®’s composition naturally promotes absorption of the minerals.* When taken with water on an empty stomach, SierraSil® has a pH of about 3.5, which allows the beneficial minerals to be easily ionized and presented to the tissues to simultaneously replenish mineral deficiencies and support metabolic balance.* It is very important to always take SierraSil® on an empty stomach. If taken with food, medications or supplements the clay component of SierraSil® will become bound to food components such as fiber, phytates and phosphates, as well as your medications or supplements and will not be absorbed into the body but will instead pass right through with all the contents intact. If taking SierraSil with food and medications the maximum intended benefits will not be realized because the proper concentrations were not absorbed into the body.
Due to SierraSil®’s absorptive and adsorptive properties, SierraSil should be taken at a different time of day, at least 4 hours before or after taking any medications.
Drinking at least 8 glasses of water per day keeps you hydrated and will complement the benefits of SierraSil®. It is important to keep your body hydrated to ensure cardiovascular health and promote the gentle detoxification properties of SierraSil®.* This will result in better absorption of vital nutrients.
Drinking sufficient water is a must with a mineral complex like SierraSil as it has absorptive properties and thus requires enough water is in the system to allow it to move freely through the GI tract. To increase fluid intake, options besides water include drinking natural, non-sugary green or herbal teas.
