Minerals: building blocks of our well-being
As with water, are necessary to life on our beautiful planet.
What we have seen in recent decades in populations of industrialized countries are increased deficiencies of minerals such as magnesium, boron, zinc, copper, iodine, iron, potassium, and more.
Some of the following could be signs of lack of minerals: chronic fatigue, overweight, lack of focus and energy, hormonal imbalances, hyperactivity, weakened immune system, low libido, hair loss, muscle tension, lack of strength and endurance, emotional rollercoaster …
Minerals contribute to numerous important functions, including: insulin production, reduction of inflammation, thyroid support, optimization of immune functions, regulation of metabolism, elimination of toxins, optimization of the nervous system, and much more.
Here are two ways in which we can help ensure we benefit from an adequate supply of minerals:
- by changing bad habits which deplete mineral reserves (stress, poor food choices…)
- by increasing the quantity, variety and quality of our intake of minerals.
But perhaps you’re thinking: I eat well, so I should have all the minerals I need! Checking out this supposition is quite easy; just examine the signs that your body gives you (see list above).
We can also check it out by looking at the origin and production methods of the food we eat, because a very large part of the foods consumed today comes from mass agriculture, soils depleted of minerals, and manufacturing methods that significantly reduce the mineral content of the foods we consume.
Nourishing our billions of cells with the precious minerals they need is both simple and complex.
