Minerals are essential in every function of life
You need more rocks in your rivers!
Minerals are what make up human tissue, facia, bones, teeth and much more. Minerals direct energy flow throughout our body through rivers called “meridians” in Chinese acupuncture. It is best to keep the energy flowing correctly in all meridian channels throughout your body or you will feel pain or have organ issues. Think of rocks in a river, the rocks (minerals) determine the flow/ direction of the water (energy). Because the human body is mainly water it is crucial to maintain proper mineral balance for proper energy flow and health. There are twelve meridians in our bodies that correspond with organs in our body, bladder, liver, kidney, spleen and so on.
As we age it is harder to hold onto minerals due to toxicity overloads. As some people age, they literally get smaller and smaller due to loss of nutrition absorption and dehydration from mineral deficiencies. Often times depression and anxiety stems from a mineral deficiency due to lack of eternal energy. Do you ever feel overwhelmed being around people, as if they are stealing your energy? If so, you are most likely mineral deficient.
When your body has proper energy flow it is amazing how fast you can heal a variety of illnesses.
Have you ever thought about your mineral deficiency?
Most people in the United Stated are deficient in many different minerals. The main reason is that the soil in the United Stated has been poisoned with pesticides and other chemicals that deplete the mineral count in our fruits and vegetables. When you think about it even the cow you eat in your burger is also eating grass or feed from land that is mineral deficient. This means no matter if you are eating fruits, vegetables, or meat you are still not consuming enough minerals.
So many people today struggle with weight gain, loss of muscle, hormonal imbalances, dehydration, mood swings, low motivation, and while there could be other factors, the root cause of these issues start with mineral deficiency.
Minerals act as a co-factor for enzymes (proteins inside cells)
Enzymes are made up of long chains of amino acids which are the foundational building blocks of protein. People trying to lose weight or gain muscle, need daily amino acid and minerals supplementation NOT more chicken breasts.
Before going on a special diet or workout plan to build muscle or lose weight, it is best to give your body the right minerals and vitamins so your body can process the proteins into muscle. An example of this is taking 6mg of boron every day for 30 days resulted in a 33% increase in free testosterone (females need testosterone too) which will drastically increase lean muscle mass, energy, focus and motivation. Give your body what it needs, and you will be surprised what it can do!
Minerals play an important role in the ATP (usable energy), heart, DNA production and proteins.
Six Types of Digestive enzymes
Enzymes are the molecules that makes digestion possible. Enzymes break down proteins into peptides and amino acids.
- Amylase – enzyme found in saliva and pancreatic fluid that converts starch and glycogen into simple sugars
- Protease– enzyme which breaks down proteins and peptides
- Lipase– pancreatic enzyme that breaks down fats to fatty acids, and glycerol or other alcohols.
- Cellulase– enzyme that helps your body pull nutrients from fruits and vegetables
- Bromelain – enzyme for digesting heavy proteins.
- Papain– Enzyme that comes from papaya fruit and is used to help digest proteins
As you can see it is very important to have all six digestive enzymes working for proper digestion function and overall health. Try our Triple Pine blend that has 20 amino acids, 18 enzymes, 24 minerals, 14 vitamins, lipids and fatty acids.
What do amino acids do?
Amino Acids provide energy to our cells, build muscle, boost immune system, digestion, grow and repair tissue, activate brain function and balance hormones. Our bodies have 1000s of proteins each having different roles to play. Proteins are long chains of amino acids, and every protein has its own sequence of amino acids, that have important functions in our body.
Nine Essential Amino Acids to make a complete protein (Eggs & Mothers Milk)
While there are 20 different amino acids in our body there are 9 that are essential to life, and they must be supplemented (meaning your body does not make them). Our bodies make the other 11 amino acids, but you need all 20 for optimal health.
Eggs and mothers milk contain all 9 essential amino acids. It is important to distinguish between human mothers’ milk and store-bought milk. Store bought milk is processed and contains high amounts of estrogen and other chemicals that should not be consumed by humans. If you can find grass feed open range chicken eggs, they hold more nutrients than store bought white eggs.
As a child if you did not receive your mother’s milk, you most likely suffer from lactose intolerance, or digestive issues due to the lack of the core 9 essential amino acids/ enzymes to break down the lactose. Missing these 9 essential amino acids can cause other health issues and often chronic diseases and allergies, due to lack of minerals and amino acids.
What could be causing your mineral imbalance?
Mineral imbalance can be caused by toxin build up, pharmaceutical drugs, heavy metals, birth control pills, antiacids and acid blockers, drugs, and alcohol can all deplete your minerals.
Minerals have a direct relationship to the human immune system functions which is our main function keeping us alive.
While I personally believe the number is much higher, they report that a third of the U.S. population is mineral deficient in boron, manganese, magnesium, chromium, calcium, zinc, iron, copper, selenium, and molybdenum.
Supplementing with minerals has been proven to help with many chronic diseases. Try our Triple Pine blend that has 20 amino acids, 18 enzymes, 24 minerals, 14 vitamins, lipids and fatty acids.
Warning: As a good rule it is best to consult with your Dr if you are taking synthetic medications (prescriptions). Most common side effects occur with people taking blood pressure medicine, Nitrates or Erectile disfunction medicines such as Viagra or Cialis. Because Herbs, roots and barks will increase your Nitric Oxide Production they can interact with synthetic medications. Most common side effects are dizziness, nausea symptoms that could last for two hours.
