Minerals are the building blocks of the body. Minerals are the conveyors of electricity and magnetism, act as structural components, play an integral part in making digestive enzymes and are in tissues and internal fluids of all living things. Minerals neutralize of displace waste poisons from out cells. Vitamins and amino acids cannot be absorbed without minerals. Mineral deficiency can cause serious problems, such as a calcium deficiency being linked to osteoporosis. In many situations, minerals act as a catalyst (imagine the body as an expensive car… the minerals act as the key that starts the engine thereby enabling all the car’s systems to start and aiding them to function properly.)
Minerals simply cannot be overlooked as major components of a healthy body. Minerals affect the acid/alkaline balance of our bodies. Most disease begins with a mineral deficiency. Mineral toxicity of deficiency can cause oxygen depletion that brings on pain, energy loss, disease and even death. Some symptoms of mineral deficiency may manifest itself as: thyroid problems, weak immune systems, anemia, fatigue, poor taste and smell, insomnia, depression, nervous tension, learning disabilities, hormone imbalance, sugar imbalance, diabetes, brain fog, cystic fibrosis, anorexia, obesity, osteoporosis, loss of hair color or hair loss, allergies, memory loss, muscle cramps, arthritis, sciatica, rheumatism, poor circulation, varicose veins, wrinkles, psoriasis, abnormal blood pressure, lack of potency, organ degeneration and heart disease.

Our bodies are complex pieces of machinery that function on whatever nutrients we give them.
The fact they function at all is indeed miraculous. Medical professionals are continually discovering new things about our systems and their functions. However, the majority of those in the medical field do not teach the ‘masses’ about the beneficial dietary aids that assist the body in so many ways. We are constantly subjected to chemical derivatives and synthetic drugs instead of the basic nutrients of which our bodies are composed. Hopefully, this information will help in understanding better how important these things are to us and out very existence here. Given the necessary tools, the human busy is usually able to repair itself.
