What are minerals, anyway? Minerals are nothing more than elements -
Your body is a masterpiece, formed from these elements. As such, it is important to constantly replenish your body with the elements it expends on a daily basis. Chemical and electrical processes are occurring within your body at every moment. Processes that can only function correctly if the proper balance of minerals are continually being supplied to your system. Iron for your blood, sulphur for your muscles, calcium for your bones and an aggregation of many other elements in balanced trace amounts to ensure the proper function of your body.
The Stripping of Mother Earth
Traditionally, eating fresh grains, fruits and vegetables, grown in nutrient rich soils have been the primary supply for the full spectrum of ionically charged minerals. In today's world, naturally occurring, nutrient-
Many of the trace elements once abundant in our soil have been washed into the oceans. There, they are found in their proper proportions -
In a few surviving inland seas, such as the Great Salt Lake in western North America, these essential elements exist in highly concentrated, salubrious proportions. The fact that the minerals are in a similar proportion to healthy living matter is a key and this intricate balance of every mineral and trace element in sea water is why it is so beneficial to the human body.
An ionic mineral is an element that has a charge, either positive or negative. On the molecular level, that means that the element has either one too many or one too few electrons. This unstable ionic state allows the element to bond readily with water, making it possible for the body to absorb it. In this state, an element has specific positive or negative electrical signatures that cause a dynamic equilibrium to take place. The body can then facilitate changes to move nutrients to the areas that need them.
