Posted by Tech Insider on March 02, 2018 10:02:13In the early days of mineral powders, you might have seen them being used as a supplement for treating acne.
It’s believed that mineral powder has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries, and in traditional Eastern medicine for thousands of years.
However, a recent study published in the Journal of Chinese Medical Science indicates that mineral powder use is actually quite recent.
The study focused on the use of mineral powder by Chinese doctors.
Researchers from the University of Hong Kong, University of Edinburgh, and the University in Hong Kong examined the usage of mineral supplements by Chinese health professionals in Hongkong, China.
According to the researchers, the amount of mineral ingested by the Chinese doctors in the study was between 4 and 10 grams.
However when the researchers analyzed the minerals in the Chinese medical books, they discovered that the amount was in the range of 6 to 10 grams, which was very similar to the amount consumed by Westerners.
So why are Chinese doctors so obsessed with mineral powder usage?
Well, according to the study, Chinese doctors were often experimenting with different minerals in different forms, such as herbal or powder, which were not always considered as safe or effective.
So if a mineral powder did not appear to work, the doctors may try to supplement with a different mineral powder.
The researchers also found that some of the doctors were not sure if the mineral powder they were using was really mineral, or just a supplement.
So how do mineral powdering doctors get away with using the same type of mineral, in the same amounts?
According to a survey, the researchers found that the most common way to supplement was to get the mineral powding doctors to use a particular type of powder, for example, using powdered gold, or mixing a mineral in a powder.
However, the study found that a lot of the supplementing doctors were using different types of mineral mixes, which may lead to different results for the patients.
The authors of the study conclude that the mineral supplementing methods are not widely used by Chinese medical practitioners, and that a more thorough investigation into this subject would be beneficial.
