Why You Need These Essential Minerals for Optimal Health

Updated: Jan 16

Minerals are critical to enzyme function, hormone production, bone building and breakdown, creating long luxurious hair and nails, and transmission of nerve signals.

Nobel Prize winner Linus Pauling PhD. "You can trace every sickness, every disease, and every ailment to a mineral deficiency."



80% of Americans lack magnesium (Google why that's no bueno for your health). Why are so many lacking so much? Because your food will only be as rich in the minerals and vitamins as the soil it grows in. And in today's world, most farmers are trying to mass-produce and just aren't going to spend the extra dolla dolla bills or time to properly treat the soil (for up to 5 years) before planting the crops that make it on your family's plates. 


So I started taking a supplement every day to get my mineral fix.

The supplement I use is Mineral Essence™ - it's a balanced, full-spectrum ionic mineral complex (which are the most fully and quickly absorbed form of minerals available).


Why should you use Mineral Essence, too? 

  1. Your body cannot properly absorb the vitamins in your food or that you're taking as supplements without minerals.

  2. This one has a natural electrolyte balance, helping us to age gracefully.

  3. This particular supplement is also enhanced with essential oils for added health benefits.


Boom.

Okay...but what's an ionic mineral, anyway? It's an element that has a charge, either positive or negative. This unstable ionic state allows the element to bond with water, making it easier for the body to absorb.

However – now, I've gotta be supes honest here - it tastes disgusting. Like a salty, minty, cinnamon, tart something. Just nope. So some people put it in capsules, but that takes a lot of capsules and work, in my opinion. I just mix it with my MindWise™ and chase it with my daily drink of NingXia Red™... here's a great tip: put it in your bath! These minerals are well absorbed across the skin, so you’ll still get the benefits of them without having to deal with the funky flavor. (For my husband who is not into baths, it turns into a foot soak.)

If you'd like to get your science on and learn even about the wellness benefits of Mineral Essence's ingredients, let the reading continue! I've been researching and digging in and this is only a small piece of the incredible info that's out there. So feel free to research more on each mineral if you want even more details; it's good stuff.


Calcium

A bone health booster all the way around, maintaining their strength and comfort, supports dental health, normal sleep patterns, and the normal hormonal changes girls and women experience that are associated with different cycles of life. Calcium is also known to support healthy weight management, healthy cellular growth, pH balance, and blood sugar levels, as well as heart and kidney function.


Magnesium

Magnesium is super important for relief of occasional stress or anxious feelings. Its enzymatic role in releasing hormones that calm the body and induce sleep make it great support for normal sleep patterns. It's an immune system booster, supports healthy blood pressure, heart and respiratory function, and bone health. It also helpful for healthy blood sugar management, hormonal function for women ages 12 and older and pregnant women.

Chloride

Maintains the proper balance of body fluids and their pH balance, working with the other electrolytes potassium and sodium. Chloride and hydrogen are needed to form stomach hydrochloric acid, so it's an essential part of digestive juices. This maintains a normal acidic environment necessary, optimizing the absorption of many nutrients, like B12 and iron. Keeps a balance of the fluid around and within cells, maintaining proper pressure and volume of blood.

Sodium

Maintains water balance, boosts brain function, relieves occasional muscle cramps, and prevents premature aging. This ain't yo mamma's table salt.

Potassium

Supports the healthy operation of blood vessels, distribution of oxygen to vital organ systems, and promotes overall health for the cardiovascular system. Promotes healthy muscles, blood sugar levels, the regulation of blood pressure, and water flow in the body. It also boosts brain function, joint comfort and movement, and optimizes kidney function.

Sulfate

A critical component of extracellular matrix proteins, it aids in the body's normal detoxification process, including the processing of food additives and toxic metals, and supports blood movement through capillaries.

Cerebroside sulfate, an integral constituent of the myelin sheaths surrounding neuronal axons in the brain, helps to maintain optimal neurological health.

Sulfate is synthesized from sulfide in the skin and red blood cells via a sunlight-dependent chemical reaction, so your levels do depend on sun exposure. Your skin basically captures energy when you're in the sunshine to catalyze sulfate synthesis.

Lithium

Supports healthy brain receptor activity and, therefore, promotes balanced moods, blood sugar levels, cellular growth, and other healthy functions. We could go on about how amazing this mineral is for your brain health and mood, but you really should DuckDuckGo it to get the full list of its benefits.

Boron

Essential in maintaining optimal bone health, brain function, aging processes, and sexual health. It also supports normal cellular growth and muscle comfort.

Honey

Contains flavanoids, anitoxidants, and supports gut health, digestive function, and the immune system. Optimizes athletic performance, and is a probiotic, among so much more!

Royal Jelly

For your skin! (It supports collagen levels so your skin stays plump and pretty.) It also supports your body's natural response to physical stress. For healthy male fertility. For your immune system, brain, and gut. For your hormones, blood sugar levels, and bone density.

Lemon Essential Oil

An antioxidant that supports the body's natural cleansing and detox process. Wonderful support for those with Autism and others who are looking for emotional balance. If you've recently given birth, grab you some of this along with Progessence Plus™ and get your hormonal and emotional balance on.

Cinnamon Essential Oil

Supports the body's natural response to inflammation and boosts the immune system. Great for intestinal and urinary health, too.

Peppermint Essential Oil

If you're of the male persuasion, this one is supportive of the prostate. If you're of the human persuasion, use it to maintain your nerve health. Digestive systems rejoice from mouth all the way out the back. And if you want help focusing, grab it and use it often.
