What’s so special about minerals, and why are they an important part of our health?
In a perfect world, everyone would get all their nutritional requirements from the food they eat. But, the reality is that poor soil quality affects the very foods we rely on for optimal health. As a result, nutrients, like minerals which are essential to our well-being, and must be consumed daily for optimum health, are being supplemented to provide their needed nutrition. Like vitamins, and other nutrients, minerals are vital in the regulation and building of cells which make up the body. Minerals work synergistically with one another to ensure that a proper pH balance occurs within the body. This collaborative relationship also guarantees that proper absorption, regulation, and the activation of other nutrients we consume happens. They are also especially important in the conductivity of electrical messages within the body. Muscle contraction, such as the heart, and brain activity are all influenced by proper and balanced mineral levels.
What makes Utah’s Inland Sea such an ideal place for harvesting minerals?
Our mineral brines are harvested from our private ponds on the Northwest side of the Great Salt Lake, and if you look at the landscape of the Great Salt Lake, you realize very quickly that it is surrounded by mountains. These mountains have various streams and rivers, that naturally runoff into the lake, and with no outlets, it becomes a catch basin. As the snowpack melts in the spring, and this runoff makes its way down the mountains, it picks up minerals from the rocks and soil that then accumulate in the Great Salt Lake.
Information that was put together by the Utah Geological Society on the Great Salt Lake clarifies how the lake is able to self-clean without any outlets. It is important, and interesting, to note this information because while the lake has been concentrating inorganic salts in its waters for thousands of years, the total soluble concentrations of heavy metals are actually low. The information the Utah Geological Society put together states that the heavy metals, including clays, are enabled within the sediments and brines due to anaerobic conditions that then immobilize the metals.
What are some of the ways people can incorporate minerals into their daily routines and diets?
Of course, the ideal way to incorporate minerals is through our diet–water and food. However, soil depletion makes even organically grown fruits and vegetables, whole grain breads and cereals, nuts and seeds, etc. wanting when it comes to minerals, so supplementing is a great way to provide minerals to our bodies. Our ConcenTrace® can easily be added to any kind of liquid–water, juice, smoothie, protein shakes, soup, tea, you name it, and should be taken throughout the day to “feed” the body all day long. Simply putting a few drops into every glass or bottle of water whether you are just carrying on with your normal activities, or working out at the gym is not only a great way to ensure we are drinking more, but also a simple way to take the minerals consistently.
