The need for trace minerals
Our bodies require minerals to function at optimal level. Ideally, these minerals would be obtained from our food sources, but modernized farming practices and processed foods have stripped these vital nutrients from our diets. And while trace minerals are needed only in small amounts, they are still a critical aspect of our overall health.
Traditionally, eating fresh grains, fruits, and vegetables grown in nutrient-rich soil has been the primary supply for a full spectrum of trace minerals.
Unfortunately in today’s world, naturally occurring, nutrient-rich soil is becoming increasingly rare. Eons of vegetation growth and aggressive modern farming techniques have brought many of the earth’s minerals to the surface where they have been washed away.
Synthetic fertilizers are routinely applied to farms and fields where minerals have been depleted, but provide only enough mineral substance to support basic plant life. Numerous trace minerals essential to human life don’t get replenished.
What can you do?
Above all else, making sure you are eating a healthy and balanced diet is the number one way to insure you are getting the right amount of trace minerals. But even when we eat the right foods, making a conscious effort to always eat healthy may not be enough. Adding our fulvic trace minerals to your diet can help keep you healthy and make sure all of your trace mineral needs are met.
