Up until about 100 years ago, we didn’t really need to add trace minerals to our diet. We got everything we needed from the foods we ate. Now, because of modern farming, our soil is becoming depleted of minerals. There have been many studies on the decline of minerals and vitamins in our fruits and vegetables over the past 50 years. The trend of soil depletion of minerals is quite disturbing. Modern agriculture methods have been striping the soil of the minerals humanity needs to thrive.
I have many friends asking me for remedies and/or cures to there health ills. The first thing I always recommend is cal-mag supplements and trace mineral drops. Most of their issues are gone within just a few weeks of adding these supplements into their diet! I’m always so happy to hear people getting healthier and happier, which is why I decided to write about this topic today.
More minerals …
Minerals are very important for overall health. But sadly, the foods we eat aren’t providing the minerals we need. Trace mineral, in colloidal form, are minerals that come from plants. When minerals come from plants they are safe for us to consume. It’s almost like the plants are a type of filter, making sure the minerals will give us optimal health.
A health issue that is common, among people I personally know, is chronic fatigue. Why do you think there are so many energy drink companies now? Why do you think there is a Starbucks on every corner? It’s because people are craving energy!
Trace minerals will give you more energy than energy drinks and coffee because your body will get everything it needs, instead of an acidic drink which depletes the body even further, of essential trace minerals.
Our bodies become even more depleted of minerals when we are stressed. It’s just a fact we live in a stressful world. Our fast paced society is depleting out bodies of minerals, just like he soil is getting depleted from minerals because of mono-crops, pesticides, GMO crops, and lack of biodiversity on farms.
When we are under pressure, our body creates hormones to try to balance things out. Our body uses minerals to create these hormones. Thyroid issues and adrenal issues are now very common nowadays, and I’d say over half the people I know have some sort of undiagnosed thyroid or adrenal gland health issues they don’t even know about.
Both thyroid and adrenal issues can be remedied by adding trace minerals (and other supplements) into the diet. Along with healthy eating habits and minimizing stress with daily meditation.
I’ve also been hearing a lot about small children, 2-3 years old, having tons of teeth issues like tooth decay, “bad” enamel, and getting cavities when they have never even ate candy in their lives. I believe that a big contributing factor to these issues is lack of a mineral rich diet. Even kids who do eat tons of fruits and vegetables still aren’t getting enough, because of the reasons I stated above.
So it’s not the parents fault that these kids are having teeth issues, it’s just became a symptom of the soil mineral depletion that is happening.
Vegetables and fruits still our the best source for minerals, nutrients and phytochemicals, but mineral supplementation is needed for optimal health, no matter how balanced of a diet you eat. Hopefully, there will be a time where farming will go back to it’s biodiversity permaculture organic ways, but for the time being I will be using colloidal trace minerals, for me and my family.
Here is the colloidal trace minerals that I personally use, several times a week. You just add them to water, juice or a smoothie. Also, these ones I buy will give your money back, if you don’t feel better or feel the benefits of the trace minerals within 45 days.
*Note: The trace minerals I recommend are colloidal. They extract the minerals from plants. Plants buffer minerals so that they are safe for humans to eat. Trace minerals do have mercury and arsenic in it, but these are minerals we actually NEED.
You wouldn’t want to eat the heavy metals mercury or arsenic, but when they go THROUGH plant form they are harmless, and actually beneficial to our health.
