Not Even A Trace of Minerals?

Farming and Preparing Food without Minerals is Hazardous

IT’S BEEN well publicized that most people do not naturally get the ideal amount of minerals from their diet, particularly trace minerals,.  This is partly due to the fact that top soil, so important to growing nutritious food, has diminished remarkably since the onset of factory farming, which has also caused erosion and chemical soil contamination.

Another reason for the paucity of minerals in our diet is that fast “food” is a dominate food source — and it does not contribute much of anything, save empty calories.  Oh, and obesity.

Your body requires nearly two thirds of all the elements scientist know about in order to maintain health.  Dealing with the demands of everyday life demand a continual ingestion of minerals, much of which we’re deficient.

Perhaps that is why an estimated 90% of Americans suffer a mineral deficiency or imbalance. Unless you eat a balanced diet of organically grown foods, you’re probably among the majority.

So, consider supplementing.  You should be able to find everything mineral you need here, of which I take:

Earth Mineral Matrix™ (650mg, 60 capsules)Earth Mineral Matrix With over 78 individual organic elements, this naturally chelated (for optimal absorption) mineral complex supports the body’s core metabolic processes, delivers iron to hemoglobin and muscular cells, and protects the intestinal tract from toxins.

Chromium Picolinate by Now Foods (200mcg, 100 capsules)Chromium Picolinate An essential mineral, chromium supports the body’s natural metabolism, while helping to promote proper insulin levels. Insulin is part of the fundamental biological processes of moving glucose out of the blood stream and into cells. Anyone that is at risk of getting diabetes, or already has it, should ask their doctor about taking chromium.  My father had adult-onset diabetes, and I’m not taking any chances.

ZMA™ (800mg, 90 medium capsules)

ZMA is a synergistic combination of zinc, magnesium and vitamin B6 that promotes restful and restorative sleep, and enhances muscle strength and endurance.
