When it comes to nutrition, what is the first thing that usually comes to mind?
Most people would say VITAMINS!
But in short, that isn’t even the half of it.
See, there is much more to health and nutrition than what is presented in the media and the medical industries.
Vitamins account for less than 20% of your daily essential nutrients! (Essential* meaning the body requires, but does not produce it)
If you really try hard, you can consume all of your vitamins, amino acids (protein building blocks) and fatty acids from plants (produce).
This is because plants CAN make these nutrients.
They pull carbon out of the air and create carbon-chains through photosynthesis.
However, what most people do not understand is the amount of nutrients that your body can actually absorb and utilize, is solely dependent on another essential nutrient.
That cofactor comes in the form of specific minerals.
Before you overlook this statement, consider this for a moment…
Plants DO NOT make minerals of any kind!
They MUST be absorbed from the soil!
If the soil is deficient of any essential mineral, you can be certain the plant is deficient of that mineral!
It has been proven both chemically and biochemically that any living vertebrae (human or animal) requires 60 essential minerals to sustain itself!
Where as, plants only require 3… Any good farmer, or husbandry man knows that N-P-K (Nitrogen-Phosphorous-Potassium) is the only combination of minerals, necessary, for plants and vegetation to grow and produce the highest yields.
See, farmers are paid by tons and bushels. There are no incentives for them to add in minerals into their soil! These soils are overworked and overused!
The minerals are gone, and bearing a flood, they are NOT coming back!
Don’t believe me? Take a look at US Senate document #264, from the 74th congress and let the evidence speak for itself. (found at the bottom of this article)
Therefore, if the minerals are not in the plants, they are not in you!
Did you know there is not a single function in your body that can take place without minerals?
That air, food, energy, vitamins, proteins, hormones and enzymes CANNOT be utilized without one or more of these mineral cofactors!?
Now, you might be supplementing with a daily multi-vitamin or multi-mineral, but understand this.
A supplement is only as good as your body’s ability to absorb it!
You are not what you eat… You ARE what you absorb!
The majority of supplements today, are found in pills. These pills are toxic and poorly absorbed in our body’s.
They are metallic or ‘elemental’ minerals, which consist essentially of ground up rocks, things like oyster shells, egg shells, dolomite, limestone, calcium carbonate, clay’s of various kinds and seabed minerals.
This form is ideal for plant consumption, but when it comes to humans, their bio-availability (absorbability) is only a mere 8-12%.
This falls to 3-5% once you reach the age of 35-40+.
Chelated (key-lated) minerals are metallic, with a protein or enzyme wrapped around them, this increases their absorption by about 40%.
The idealistic mineral form is colloidal, plant derived minerals.
They are very small in particle size, roughly 7000 times smaller than a red blood cell.
Every particle is negatively charged (-) and since your intestinal lining is positively charged (+), they actually have an electrical or magnetic gradient, that concentrates these mineralsaround the lining of your intestine.
Plants convert metallic minerals from the soil, in their tissues, to colloids or colloidal form, and this is how we store them in our body.
This is also how we transplant them from storage place to site of use, in the colloidal form.
These 3 things together create 98% efficient absorption in the BODY!
It is understood that mineral deficiencies are the main limiting factor for –
“You can trace every sickness, every disease and every ailment to a MINERAL deficiency” – Dr. Linus Pauling
Believe it or not, if you take proper care of yourself now, you can live to be 120-140 years of age!
Those folks you see who are over 100 should actually be the NORM, not the exception.
I’ll give you a few examples so you can see what I mean:
In Eastern Pakistan there is a group of people called the Hunza’s who are famous for longevity, typically living 120 to 140 years.
Next, in what is now Western Russia, there are the long living Russian Georgians made famous in the seventies by Dannon Yogurt.
South of them are the Armenians, the Abkhazians and the Azerbaijanis who were studied for 60 years because they routinely lived to be 120- 140.
In the Western Hemisphere the Vilcabamba Indians in the Andes of Ecuador, are famous for living a long time.
Then in South Eastern Peru there are the Titicaca who are famous for living to be 120-140 as well.
Even Americans can live a long life, despite what many consider to be bad diets and poor habits.
As of 2010, there were 53,364 people in the U.S. who were 100 or older.
The long-lived cultures have certain common denominators.
- They all live in high mountain villages, that are about 8,500 to 14,000 feet in elevation.
- They all get less than 2% of precipitation each year.
- They don’t have any rain, snow or dew. (Very dry places)
- They get all their drinking water and all their irrigation water for their crops from what we call ‘Glacial Milk.’
Glaciers in every one of those communities grind up the parent rock of those mountains, about 4 inches per year. There’s can be 60 to 72 minerals in each one of these places.
The water that comes out from underneath those Glaciers isn’t clear like Perrier or Evian Water. You take a glass of it and hold it up and it looks like Jersey Milk.
They have irrigated with it, year after year, crop after crop, generation after generation, for 2,500 to 5,000 years.
They have no diabetes, no heart disease, no high blood pressure, no arthritis, no osteoporosis, no cancer, no cataracts, no glaucoma, no birth defects, no jails full of drug addicts, no taxes and no DOCTORS!
Yet they live to be 120 to 140 without DIS-EASE!
Are these colloidal minerals important?
You bet your life they are important and every time you don’t take them in every day you are chopping off a few hours or a few days of your life…
Every animal and human being that dies of ‘natural causes’ actually dies of a nutritional deficiency!
If longevity is something you would like to accomplish, you need –
90 essential nutrients in your BODY every day:
- 60 minerals
- 16 vitamins
- 12 essential amino acids which are your protein building blocks
- 2-3 essential fatty acids
If you don’t have these in complete numbers and optimal amounts, over time you ARE going to get a deficiency disease.
One sentence that has killed more people than all the wars in American history… You get all the nutrition you need from the four food groups.
Information gives you the ability to make decisions with confidence.
I hope you have enjoyed my message!
By giving your body the ‘proper’ raw materials everyday, you’ll be taking the necessary steps in living healthier and living longer.
Make the decision to take control of your personal health and longevity program today.
Just as there are many manufacturers of aspirin, there are now many manufacturers of vitamins and mineral supplements.
Be sure to get your colloidal minerals derived only from the very best organic plant source deposits.
Colloidal Minerals are the mineral source our bodies were designed to use, not ground up rocks.
All disease, aging itself and even death are caused by groups of your cells not functioning properly, not replicating efficiently, or dying off too rapidly.
