The Fundamental Role of Minerals
Most of us think of minerals as being necessary for strong bones and teeth, but minerals do much more. In addition to providing us with shape and support for our skeleton, minerals are the “spark of life.” Minerals are essential in the diet and each plays unique and often multi-factorial roles as they act at all levels of the body – cells, tissues, organs, and the whole organism. All of our body processes depend upon the action of minerals to activate the enzymes which perform bodily functions we take for granted.
Without proper mineral ratios we could not set into motion the properties and functions of enzymes, vitamins or amino acids. These elemental components are responsible for every activity in every cell of our bodies. Cellular functions require a proper chain of events that start with minerals. Without the proper mineral we could not twitch an eyelid or form a thought.
The Key Ingredients of Life
Each and every mineral that exists in the earth also exists in us and in all living things. Quantum physics shares the philosophy that we are really one with all things. Just as the earth must maintain its balance to function optimally, our bodies need balance, too. When given the right materials in the right form (from nature) the body can do amazing things to promote its own health. The earth naturally gives us minerals via water and food. Today, with current farming practices that deplete soil of necessary minerals and water supplies that have been polluted and poisoned, our population has become mineral malnourished. Eidon has taken the lead to provide you with minerals the way nature intended. We use a proprietary process that transforms pure mineral crystals into a fully hydrated, 100% bioavailable liquid ionic supplement and gives you purity that you can see, taste and feel.
The Magic of Minerals
The only thing that will catalyze or activate an enzyme is a mineral. While very difficult to measure within each cell (in fact this capability still eludes our present scientific measurement technology) it can be assumed that most cells require a full complement of all minerals to function correctly. We do know that some organs require higher concentrations of certain minerals.
The lack of specific minerals can precipitate both acute and chronic health problems. Sudden heart attacks occurring during physical activity are often the result of mineral depletion of immediate cellular supplies of potassium and magnesium. Always remember that your physical health is dependant on your cellular health. Everything begins and ends on a cellular level.
Some chronic and acute health problems associated with lack of a certain mineral or minerals are:
- Heart disease
- Gastrointestinal disorders
- Periodontal disease
In fact, we believe that most human ailments can be described as chronic nutrient deficiency symptoms. Some diseases are contracted via direct exposure to bacteria, virus, amoebas or other pathogens; but an optimally functioning immune system can defend us from these pathogenic invaders. It requires a proper mineral balance to keep our immune system strong and healthy. Deficiencies of zinc, selenium, silica, and sulfur, which occur as a result of poor diet or excess stress, can put our health at risk.
The Bottom Line
In a nutshell, you can have all the air, water, protein, carbohydrates, fats, and vitamins you want, but you won’t be a fully functioning organism without a complete balance of minerals. Without minerals all the other components of the body will be unable to function properly.
Eidon prides itself on bringing information and education to the public. We believe that being proactive in our own health is the key to a long and healthy life.
