What are minerals? Minerals are inorganic substances, which occur naturally in non-living things such as water, rocks and soil. Minerals are elements essential for life.
Plants absorb the minerals from the soil and then people, animals, bugs, etc. eat the plants and get the minerals that way as well as through water.
Why are minerals important?
Minerals are essential for all bodily functions. They build strong bones and teeth, blood, skin, hair, nerve & muscles. They are necessary for metabolic processes such as those that turn the food we eat into energy.
So, minerals are needed for the body to work properly, for growth, development, and for maintaining normal health.
Different minerals are required in different amounts but they are all essential. Minerals that are needed in bigger amounts on a daily basis are known as macro or major-minerals. Minerals that are needed in smaller amounts are known as micro-minerals or “trace elements”.
Many minerals that are sold as supplements are actually byproducts of industry and are not natural and many times not absorbable and actually toxic. Most of the time there are only about 18 minerals added.
Do you know how many minerals should be in the soil to have healthy plants? 90! Yes ninety. Our bodies need those 90 also. That lack is one of the reasons people are so ill.
And minerals do need to be balanced. Take too much calcium and you throw off the balance between it and magnesium as well as other minerals.
Remember: Lacking vitamins the system can make use of minerals but lacking minerals, vitamins are useless. It is essential that you get minerals naturally and in usable form.
We carry minerals that are balanced, natural and bio-available (can be taken up and used by the body). Call to order yours today and see the difference.
