If you love being vibrant and healthy with lots of energy, you will LOVE learning about Mineral Essence – it’s one of my “must have” supplements each day.
Everyday life demands a constant supply of minerals, and keeping these minerals in balance is a critical task for our body.
Remember the Periodic Table?
In order to be healthy, your body requires nearly two thirds of all the elements currently known to man!!!!
In fact, 5% of your body is made up of minerals. Wow!!!
But minerals do so much more than this!
Your body relies on ionic minerals and trace minerals to generate billions of electrical impulses. These impulses are what drives all of your muscles, including your heart! Without them, your heart, and all your other muscles would not be able to function. Even your brain needs these minerals….and so do your cells, because it’s these minerals that allow proper “osmosis” to occur in your body, allowing your cells to balance water pressure and absorb necessary nutrients.
Can you see how critical minerals are to your overall health? In fact, they are more critical than vitamins!!!!
Without good mineral levels, we become vitamin deficient. This is because our body needs minerals in order to absorb and assimilate vitamins.
Back in the 1930’s Dr. Charles Northen, a US medical doctor and researcher, reported that, “In the absence of minerals, vitamins have no function. Lacking vitamins, the system can make use of the minerals, but lacking minerals vitamins are useless.”
Ionic minerals are the very best type of mineral supplement – they are the most easily absorbed by our intestines, according to Dr. Alexander G. Schauss, Ph.D.
Young Living’s Mineral Essence is an ionic mineral supplement that is organic, and has more than 60 different trace minerals, including beryllium, bismuth, boron, bromine, calcium, carbon, cesium, chloride, chromium, copper, gallium, germanium, gold, hafnium, indium, iodine, iron, lithium, lutetium, manganese, magnesium, molybdenum, nickel, niobium, nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, rubidium, scandium, selenium, silica, silver, sodium, strontium, sulfur, tantalum, thallium, tin, titanium, tungsten, vanadium, yttrium, zinc and zirconium.
It contains Honey (a natural emulsifier and sweetener), and Royal Jelly, which is rich in amino acids, minerals and Vitamins B5 and B6, and which provides wonderful energy for the body. And it contains Lemon, Cinnamon Bark and Peppermint Essential Oils.
The recommended use is 5 droppers (5ml) in water, juice or NingXia Red daily.
I add 5 droppers each night to a glass of water. I like taste of it when it’s well diluted like this – it’s not designed to take on its own without water (it’s very strong tasting – you’ll grow hairs on your chest!!!).
I’ve learned over the years that my body just thrives on minerals. I live life to the fullest, work long hours, have a strong sense of spirituality – and minerals help me to “keep up with myself!”
But why can’t I get my minerals from good, healthy organic food?
According to Dr. Gary Price Todd, MD, the human body requires at least 60 minerals for optimal health, yet only 8 minerals are available in any kind of quantity in most of the food we eat today. This is because many of our soils are now depleted in minerals, so even the very best organic food can be mineral-deficient.
That’s why an ionic mineral supplement like Mineral Essence is so beneficial for long-term good health….and it contains 60 minerals, which is the critical number for the human body!!!!
Centuries ago, eating fresh grains, fruits, and vegetables grown in nutrient-rich soil was the primary supply for a full spectrum of ionic minerals.
Modern farming techniques have brought many of the earth’s minerals to the surface, and from there they have been washed away into the oceans.
As far back as 1977, Dr. Walter Mertz from the US Department of Agriculture told congress that:
“In the future, we will not be able to rely anymore on our premise that the consumption of a varied balanced diet will provide all the essential trace elements, because such a diet will be very difficult to obtain for millions of people.”
Did you know???
This pic above is from the soil on Young Living’s Ecuador farm – it is so mineral rich, this is one of the reasons that Young Living find that the oils coming from the Ecuador farm (eg. Lemongrass oil) contain compounds not seen in oils from the same type of plant grown in other regions of the world!!! But very few soils like this exist in the world.
This is why Mineral Essence is my “second-top” Young Living supplement….meaning it’s a “MUST HAVE”.
And of course you are wondering what is my top supplement? For me, it’s Essentialzymes-4, Young Living’s enzyme complex which is available for purchase from Young Living in the USA (via the “NFR” or not-for-resale program). More on that amazing product another day!
