Plants cannot produce minerals. Plants extract and assimilate metallic minerals from the soil they grow in. Through a diet of plant matter, and also by consuming animals that eat plants, humans assimilate minerals.
Like many things in life, minerals, although essential for our well being, are taken for granted. It is only in recent years that the public in general have become aware of these essential building blocks.
There would be no life without minerals. Given the fact that the main source of minerals is from plant matter, and that in most cases plants are grown in mineral deficient soil, it is little wonder that almost every person on this planet has a mineral deficiency! The same is true for animals. (Most graziers provide mineral supplements for their stock.)
There are over 90 minerals and elements found on earth. Oxygen, Hydrogen, Carbon and Nitrogen make up 96%. The remaining 4% is made up of over 70 minerals.
Minerals are the key to life. They are needed for the biological processes of every living organism, human, plant or animal. An imbalance in minerals, both Macro (major minerals) and Trace (minor minerals) will disrupt the levels of all other micro nutrients, including vitamins.
The importance of minerals is not overlooked by government and big business. The cost of a mineral-deficient diet far outweighs the cost of supplementation. With this in mind, developed nations have, for some time, been adding micronutrients to certain processed foods. Unfortunately, addressing the shortcomings of modern foods by simply adding one or two macro elements (major minerals like Calcium and Sodium) along with synthesized vitamins has not solved the problem of mineral or even vitamin deficiency.
Minerals are the key to unlocking the nutritional treasure trove in our food, whether they be sourced from animal or plant sources. The metabolizing fats, proteins and vitamins would not be possible without the participation of minerals, nor would the astounding 20,000+ enzymatic reactions in which minerals play a pivotal role. You cannot address a mineral deficiency by taking vitamins, but a vitamin deficiency can be addressed by taking minerals.
What are electrolytes?
Electrolytes are minerals in your blood and other body fluids that carry an electrical charge. It is important for the balance of electrolytes in your body to be maintained, because they affect the amount of water in your body, blood pH, muscle action and nerve impulses. Electrolytes (minerals) directly influence the activities of all major organs in the body. Without them, one’s heart, brain and every other organ would simply cease to function.
During periods of physical exertion, vast amounts of electrolytes can be lost in perspiration. You also lose Electrolytes when you go to the toilet.
Ocean derived Mineral Liquid supplement will assist the body in maintaining viable electrolyte levels in the body fluids.
A good balance of Electrolytes is required for both young and old. Electrolytes directly influence every biological process of every living creature. They assist the body in extracting and processing vital nutrients.
Electrolytes fall under the classification of micronutrients. An imbalance in minerals, both macro (major minerals) and trace (minor minerals) will disrupt the levels of all other micro nutrients, vitamins included.
Deficiencies in micro nutrients have finally been recognized by the United Nations as one of the leading causes of illness and death in adults and children in developing countries.
What are Sea Minerals?
As Ocean Minerals and our blood plasma are almost chemically identical, Sea Minerals are the finest source for nutritional minerals and trace elements in nature.
You may be surprised to know that ocean water is a rich and balanced source of all minerals and trace elements in concentrations that are not only beneficial to man, but every living creature and life form on earth.
Just think of this: Our oceans support an unknown and until now, an untold number of life forms. Oceanographers claim that an astounding two million+ species are yet to be discovered. This is only made possible by the range and concentrations of elements within our ocean waters.
Did you know that a fetus starts its life in its mother’s womb comfortably suspended in a warm solution much like ocean water? It is no coincidence that sea minerals and our very own “blood plasma” are almost chemically identical? The fluid that feeds all our organs, major and minor, has a fine balance of elements within it.
How are Sea Minerals extracted from ocean water?
Sea Minerals liquid concentrate is produced via natural evaporation and concentration of vast volumes of ocean water over a two year cycle on the pristine Australian coastline. The resulting Sea Minerals concentrate represent almost 85 times the concentration of essential minerals present in the original ocean water.
At no point in the processing of Australian Sea Minerals are synthetic chemicals added. During the processing of ocean water, evaporation produces a liquid concentrate containing a huge range of macro, micro and trace elements with less than 3% of usual salt content.
The resulting trace elements and minerals are ionic in nature. The microscopic particles are readily dispersed through the body’s cells. This remarkable mineral ‘soup’ has every mineral and trace element required to not only sustain life, but to promote it as well.
Are Sea Minerals high in sodium?
Sea Minerals are sodium reduced. This reduction process is carried out naturally, utilizing the natural forces of solar evaporation and precipitation. The salty or bitter taste of Sea Minerals is attributed to the rich levels of Magnesium, Potassium and other minerals.
The daily dosage of Sodium in Sea Minerals is but a fraction of the Sodium required to maintain life. The majority of Sodium in our diets comes from use of table salt in food preparation and preservatives.
