Minerals, the Universe and You
What are minerals, anyway? Minerals are nothing more than elements - the very same elements that graced the periodic table inside you chemistry text book. Chromium, magnesium, iron, zinc and so on. They are the elements that comprise the entire Universe, this Earth and everything in it, including you.
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-rich soil is  unfortunately becoming more and more rare. Aggressive modern farming  techniques have brought many of the Earth's minerals to the surface,  where they have been washed away. Synthesized fertilizers are routinely  applied to fields where minerals are depleted, but man-made  fertilizers provide only enough mineral substance to support basic plant  life. Numerous trace minerals, essential to human life, aren't  replenished.
        
Where Have All the Minerals Gone?
Many  of the trace elements once abundant in our soil have been washed into  the oceans. There, they are found in their proper proportions - the same basic proportions that are found in healthy bodies. Even today, these life -  sustaining sea waters cannot be recreated by science; all elements  necessary to support human life are ionically charged and in perfect  balance - prime for being absorbed into the cells of your body.. 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.
        
What Are Ionically Charged Minerals?
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.
