Why we sell the non-mineral products you find on our website.
You may wonder why a mineral supplement company offers the array of non-mineral products you find on our website. It may seem odd but not really. Following is the logic we have used to create the shopping cart we have put together.
First and foremost, everything on our site has, as a basis, a specific blend of minerals. This is true of everything you see, feel, touch or eat, including you.
A significant part of learning about the concept of mineral balancing is that while it can be done in isolation, the task becomes much easier and faster when you incorporate lifestyle changes focused on clean healthy eating. This is the reason we have added other foods and supplements, to help in the achievement of this fundamental lifestyle change.
The basic premise here is that you cannot eat junk and rapidly achieve mineralibrium. This, I was fortunate to learn early on in the development of our mineral product line. We must all focus on eating mineral rich bioavailable foods on a daily basis.
As I address frequently in the articles I write, our water and food supply should be the first and primary sources of accessing an adequate supply of nutrient minerals for optimal day to day functioning.
It all begins when you eat a meal. It should be comprised of a variety of components including natural fats, complex sugars, and amino acids. Many people have compromised or inadequate digestive systems. This is primarily due to a mineral imbalance — the lack of the element chloride. Our body turns chloride into hydrochloric acid in our stomach and this solution begins the digestive process. This brings up the first supplement to take if your stomach digestive juices are compromised — Eidon Edge. At the same time we recommend permanently incorporating sea salt into your diet as a complete source of chloride, sodium, and all of the other elements we are made of. This is easily and deliciously accomplished with the addition of Pink Andean Salt. Throw out any table salt as it does not contain the proper and necessary balance of all the nutrient minerals.
Our BSE (Brown Seaweed Extract), from kelp that grows in Patagonia, provides you with good natural sources of Iodine and Selenium that are difficult to source in the foods we traditionally eat. Additionally, this supplement is rich in complex sugars, especially fucose. This sugar does not provide energy but rather is an intracellular messenger allowing for better cellular communication.
Gut health is critical for the production of all our vitamins. Because of the overuse of antibiotics, our body’s ability to make or process all of the vitamin compounds we use daily is highly compromised. So, first and foremost we offer an incredible 1-2 punch of probiotics in the O’Donnell Formulas Flora Balance and Ultimate Acidopholis. While not instant, these 2 supplements, taken daily over time, will restore your digestive system bacterial flora to a natural state allowing for optimal digestion and bowel functioning.
In the meantime, we recognize that one’s ability to make optimal levels of all the vitamins it needs for optimal functioning is usually quite compromised as a result of the antibiotics with which we are continually bombarded. Consequently, we also offer a complete B Complex in a tincture, Vitamin D from cod liver oil in gelcaps, and a complete blend of all of the vitamins in capsules.
Taurine is also available as it is many times recommended on our hair tests. Taurine is an amino acid manufactured by a healthy body and used to deal with stress. Specific mineral ratios on a Hair Mineral test will reflect the level of metabolic, physical, and emotional stress an individual is under. Taurine helps one deal with this stress during their program of mineral balancing and is frequently recommended.
In good health,
