80% of sickness comes from missing MINERALS. More important than vitamins.
Learn why most people are taking the WRONG thing (it’s not necessarily a vitamin). Don’t feel right, this article is for you.
Minerals are missing!!!
Minerals are more important than vitamins. Vitamins are required for activity and processes in the body but each vitamin requires a mineral to work. Every vitamin has a mineral center.
Many people take a multivitamin every day but so many people are missing minerals. Minerals are inorganic compounds that support life processes. Minerals act like mortar and bricks of our body. All body processes are dependent on minerals.
There are two classes of minerals:
Macrominerals – needed in large amounts. Calcium is the most abundant micromineral. Other macrominerals are potassium, phosphorous, chlorine, magnesium and sulfur.
Microminerals – trace minerals are needed in small amounts. Think, zinc, copper, manganese, iodine, fluoride, chromium, cobalt, selenium, molybdenum, silicon and vanadium.
It is said that a healthy, balanced diet provides all of your minerals, but this is not easy. Farming practices, fertilizers, pesticides, and soil health have changed food content. Also, many people have ‘sick’ stomachs and cannot absorb nutrients. The also certain minerals interfere with each other if taken at the same time as in the instance of calcium and iron. Other minerals need each other for absorption like potassium and sodium.
Minerals are like the glue or brick and mortar of the body. They serve as important building blocks for bones, organs and tissues. They are important co-factors for enzymes, hormones and vitamins. When we eat food that has minerals in it, the body uses minerals for bones, vitamins, and transportation of signals from the brain to the body and body to the brain. Minerals are the conduit for life.
Because minerals are required for vitamins, proteins, enzymes, amino acids, carbohydrates, fats and sugar, when you are not getting enough, illness and sickness occurs. 80% of health conditions can be traced back to a mineral deficiency.
A quick summary:
– Sodium helps regulate water and nervous system
– Potassium – controls water, regulates cell pressure and the nervous system
– Calcium – builds bones, regulates muscle contractions and the immune system
– Phosphorous – energy, fat and protein metabolism, prevents sticky blood cells
– Magnesium – stimulates enzyme activity, muscle health and smooth muscle relaxation
– Iron – blood oxygen transport
– Copper – connective tissue, blood clotting
– Zinc – insulin, wound healing, immune system and sex hormones
– Manganese – ligament health, hormone balance and blood glucose levels
– Iodine – thyroid health, immune system and has anti-cancer properties’’
– Selenium – reduces toxicity, connective tissue health, reduced heavy metal toxicity
Summary – minerals are essential for health. Most people are not getting enough minerals and it effects their energy, vitality, mental focus, hormone production, recovery rate and immune system.
Minerals are more important than vitamins. If your health is not where you would like it to be, then you should supplement with a high quality mineral formula.
