Minerals — The Building Blocks Of Life

By: Roy Williams

Almost every health disorder can be tied directly to mineral deficiencies. Osteoporosis or bone loss, high blood pressure, irregular heartbeat, gout, muscle cramps, spasms, twitching, restless leg syndrome, autoimmune disorders, and even cancer are just a few of the disorders effecting Americans today. In most cases these disorders can be prevented or even reversed when the body has proper amounts of minerals.

There are 74 minerals and trace elements that are necessary for a balanced body and a healthy life. For instance, if your food supply doesn’t contain enough calcium, the most abundant mineral, and vitamin D, you will develop osteoporosis. If your diet lacks magnesium, you will have muscle cramps, spasms, restless leg, irregular heartbeat, and constipation.

Osteoarthritis, the most common type of arthritis, is a lack of the minerals necessary to grow cartilage and connective tissue. Gout is caused by a build up of uric acid, which is due to a deficiency of alkalizing minerals such as magnesium, potassium, copper and selenium. Irregular heartbeat or tachycardia can be caused by the fact that your calcium and magnesium levels are out of balance.

In other words, minerals affect every aspect of the human body from circulation and elimination to brain function and sexual performance. Even the endocrine system must have proper amounts of minerals to work as designed. For instance, if you aren’t getting enough of the mineral iodine, you will develop either hypothyroidism (weight gain) or hyperthyroidism (weight loss).

Here are just a few disorders associated with mineral deficiency:

The Standard American Diet (SAD) is so deficient of minerals that deficiency diseases are epidemic. Even allergies and other respiratory disorders are now being linked to low levels of specific minerals.

When they first had the ability to diagnosis bone loss it was predominately women over the age of 70 that showed any bone loss. Today, the average woman will have the beginning stages of bone loss by age 26 and full-blown osteoporosis by 48.

What has changed over the last few decades? In 1931, the U.S. Senate had the farm soils tested and proved that they were over 80% depleted of the minerals that were necessary to maintain good health. The scientists warned us then that if we didn’t figure out a way to replenish the soils, we would see degenerative disease increase to epidemic proportions.

We did not replenish the soils; instead, we began using fertilizer, which has only 3 of the 79 minerals needed. The results are degenerative diseases such as those mentioned above.

Over time, your body becomes more and more acidic. Acid is the enemy of your bones, teeth, and most major organs. Americans drink too little water and too many liquids that are acidic. We drink coffee, which has up to 208 forms of acid in the coffee bean itself. Tea, especially black tea, is acidic. Alcohol and sugar turns to acid in the body. But the worst of all liquids Americans consume are soft drinks.

Most soft drinks fall in the range of 2.3 to 2.4 on the pH scale. It is estimated that it would take 32 eight-ounce glasses of water with 12 pH alkalizing drops in each glass to overcome the acid in just one 10-ounce soft drink. Remember, cancer loves acid.

What I Would Do

Now that you know what is causing most of the health disorders in America, I’m sure you would like to know what can be done. If we aren’t getting our minerals from our diet, then what can we do to support our health?

Humic Minerals: To make sure your body has every mineral take Hu-Minerals, either in liquid form or capsule. This is the brand that I chose because it contains over 74 minerals and trace elements to help your body maintain balance and remain healthy even into your 90s and longer. It will also help maintain alkalinity and at the same time support your organs, hair, skin and nails.

HGH Gel: For those who wish to go the extra mile. Research has shown that the human body will build stronger bones and reverse many symptoms of aging when you increase your human growth hormone levels.

Here are just a few of the benefits of using this incredible product: 8.8% increase in muscle, after six months, without exercise; 14.4% fat loss without dieting; higher energy level; enhanced sexual performance; greater cardiac output; improved immune function; stronger bones; and mood elevation.
