NASA Studies ION-MIN® Premium Montmorillonite Clay

Space exploration became a reality on October 4, 1957 when the Russians launched Sputnik 1, a satellite about the size of a basketball into orbit. What followed was a Space Race between The U.S.S.R. and the United States. It was as much about world power as it was man's curiosity about, "what was up there?"

It was not long before a living specimen was sent up, Laika, a dog was launched into orbit on Nov 3, 1957. It was not until January 31, 1958 that the United States began its extensive space mission.

In 1958, there was the Explorer missions - 1 & 2, A Vanguard 1 launch, A Sputnik 3 and the race was now in full swing. This is the year the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. (N.A.S.A.) was established, on October 1st. This agency replaced the National Advisory Committee on Aeronautics and put into place to insure the race to space was favorable to the United States and to put into place sage strategies on space travel.


The Russians were the first to orbit and place a man-made object on the moon with their Luna 1 and Luna 2 missions, so this created an ever increasing pressure on the U.S. to keep up. In 1960 the U.S. successfully launched a weather satellite and a spy camera in two separate missions.

The U.S.S.R. kept on relentlessly and placed the first man in orbit on April 12, 1961 and the U.S. responded on May 5, 1961. The Race for Space took on a whole new significance now that humans were being sent up. The early 1960's were filled with excitement and wonderment as the world watched the two Super Powers flex their technology muscles.

A primary concern of the safety of the Astronauts created redundancy in equipment to safeguard capsule occupants in the event of equipment failure. As man spent longer and longer times in space, under zero gravity conditions it became evident that other issues needed to be addressed. The effects of space travel on the human body. When a body that grows up with a condition of a certain gravity exertion on that body, strange things occur when it is placed outside this environment.

What was being noticed at an alarming rate was that the Astronauts were coming back to Earth, after an extended time in zero gravity and they were suffering from a bone effect similar to osteoporosis and it was an unexpected danger to their health.

N.A.S.A. released a challenge to respected Researchers and Scientist, asking for a solution. What was needed was a product that could provide highly absorbable calcium to the Astronauts. A product that could survive the rigors of a launch, exerting excessive gravitational forces against it and still give the Astronauts the help they needed.

In 1964, Dr. Paul A. LaChance, a technical advisor to N.A.S.A. reached out to two brilliant Ph.Ds. Benjamin H. Ershoff and Gurwant S. Bajwa, D.V.M. who were conducting experiments with animals and helping to build better bone strength in animals in conjunction with Cal-Tech University.

N.A.S.A. funded study
Their meeting and the results of their research prompted a N.A.S.A. funded study under contract number NAS 9-3905. The subject of the study was a remarkable clay having extremely exciting properties that Dr. Ershoff had encountered earlier in a meeting with Harries Hebbard, the original owner of the ION-MIN® mine site.

The extensive study, involving live animal specimens and consisted of several experiments using, rats, mice, hamsters and miniature pigs as the subjects. They were testing to see the impact on bone density and body weight of the animals when they were given different percentages of clay introduced into their ration controlled diets. The results of the tests

are incredible and point directly to the efficacy of ION-MIN® on bone development and other health benefits. To see the full study, including the extensive x-ray proof Tap Here.

The study lasted from Dec. 1, 1964 to June 15, 1965. The clay was approved for us by Astronauts in Space and reported to N.A.S.A. on July 19, 1965 under acceptance number N66 32620.
N.A.S.A. study



NOTE: There are many clay companies that use this report as evidence of the efficacy of a clay that offers the benefits documented in the N.A.S.A. study. Do not be misled by their misdirection. There has only been one clay that was tested for N.A.S.A. and that Premium Montmorillonite clay is ION-MIN® . Every clay has its own signature and though other clays may be Montmorillonite by definition, none have the exact properties of the ION-MIN® that was proven so effective by the N.A.S.A. study.
