When people think of minerals they typically think of what are called Macro minerals, or major minerals. These minerals include Magnesium, Sodium, Potassium, Phosphorus, Chloride, Sulfur and Calcium which are stored for use by the body in larger quantities. In this article, we’ll primarily be discussing the lesser known trace minerals also known as micro minerals, and how to make sure you’re getting enough of them.
Micro minerals are needed in considerably smaller quantities than their macro counterparts but these trace minerals play an equally essential role in the maintenance of our health and the preservation of our well-being. Some of the key Trace minerals are: Chromium, Copper, Cobalt, Iodine, Iron, Manganese, Molybdenum, Selenium and Zinc.
Minerals Roles in your life
The human body desperately needs Trace minerals to survive. What are Trace or micro minerals and what do they do? Trace minerals serve our bodies in many different ways. Their individual and combined potentials positively affect our health and are as varied as they are versatile.
Minerals play key roles in fundamental metabolic functions as they participate in a broad range of biochemical processes throughout the body. They are the integral building blocks of hormones and enzymes, playing key roles in the formation of bone structure and cellular metabolism. They are essential to our growth, health and happiness. Just for your benefit, we’ll list a few and describe some of the roles they play.
Chromium, closely tied in with the insulin tolerance factor, helps the organometallic molecule kick off the action of insulin. This is key for the metabolism of carbohydrates. Manganese is an important element in multiple enzymes responsible for amino acid metabolization and glucose oxidization. It helps the body form connective tissues, bones and blood clotting factors.
Iodine regulates our metabolism and growth by working intrinsically with the thyroid hormones. Antioxidants like selenium serve to protect against cell damage. Copper is a key player in hematopoiesis, the production of all cellular components in blood plasma. Cobalt works with intestinal bacteria enabling us to synthesize vitamin B12.
Without Iron we wouldn’t have blood. It’s also one of the number one metals helping you to oxidize lipids. Zinc’s role as an essential factor in multiple different metalloenzymes is invaluable, helping us to grow and function.
These minerals are the building blocks for the framework of our physiology. They are the fibers in the threads of the fabric of our very being. Found in a broad spectrum of foods like meats, nuts, fruits, vegetables and grains, beans, cheeses, poultry and more, they manifest themselves abundantly. And yet, despite this abundance, and the minute daily doses required for optimum health benefits, most people struggle to meet these day-to-day requirements.
Common Mineral Deficiencies
In a world ever flooded with genetically modified foods and poisonous pollutants, we are left to pick through lesser and poorer options, devoid of the nutrients we need and deserve. It becomes increasingly difficult to nourish ourselves with the minerals our bodies are begging for when we eat foods that do not contain enough of them.
While it is possible for us to garner these key mineral nutrients from our daily diet, it takes an exhausting balancing act of vigilance and discretion, as we are constantly delving into the origins of our produce and the respective nutrient profiles of the foods we consume, as we attempt to sort between the good and the bad, the lacking and the sustaining.
Many people suffer from various mineral deficiencies across the board, eventually turning to the bonanza of mineral supplements advertised in today’s market. If you’ve come to this blog in search of truly natural nutrition, you are undoubtably all too familiar with the host of nonsensically poisonous additives like stearates and dioxides commonly found in such supplements.
The Benefits Of Real Salt
Fortunately, there’s an easy fix for all these problems and the foods lacking in the nutrients we need. A magic formula exists to take all the guess work out of endless digging and supplement research. It’s easy and it’s cost effective. It’s just what you need.
The magic formula is Sole. It’s a simple saline solution. Just salt and water. That’s all. This isn’t just the stuff to survive on. It’s the stuff to thrive on. This salty elixir delivers on many different fronts as it brings you your trace minerals in one savory serving. These minerals are available in a colloidal state, readily absorbed by our cells.
Now, most of us have been told since we were very young, that salt is a no-no. This is simply not the case. We’re not dealing with your ordinary, run-of-the mill table salt that’s been bleached, and heated beyond recognition. Most salts we encounter day to day are mostly sodium chloride and little else.
While sodium chloride is an essential compound that our body uses to absorb and transport nutrients, it’s not helpful in a unnaturally concentrated dose, without any of the natural trace minerals that normally ought to come along with it. Made using an ancient, unrefined sea salt, this sole makes a rich mineral tonic that delivers all your trace minerals in one easy, natural and bioavailable dose.
Paired with around nearly 70 other minerals, in addition to those previously discussed, Sole helps maintain hydration like no other supplement. The electrically charged minerals in this beverage like Sodium, Calcium, Chloride and Potassium keep you hydrated better than of those of other sugary sports drinks on the market. These are pure Electrolytes being delivered straight to your cells in their most natural form.
The habitual intake of this drink will continue to benefit your health in a multitude of ways. Sole is an amazing supplement in addition to all the other minerals we strive to consume in our daily diet. In addition to supporting your daily hydration, it can also help in balancing your PH and aiding nutrient transport to cells.
Sole is also wonderful for preventing muscle cramps. It will also do wonders for your hair skin and nails. The list goes on and on in length and variety. Don’t let this article be the end of the line in your education on Sole. Get out there and dig a little deeper with some independent research!
How to Make Sole Water
To make Sole, you’ll need filtered water, a quality salt like Redmond Real, or Pink Himalayan, and a glass jar with a non-metallic lid. Whatever size jar your choose to use, fill it one quarter of the way with salt. Next fill it the rest of the way with purified water. Shake it, then leave it for 12-24 hours.
If some salt remains at the bottom of your Sole jar, this means that the water has now become completely saturated in salt to its highest point of ambient salinity. On the other hand, if all the salt has been absorbed, proceed by adding more salt in small amounts between 12 hour periods until some salt remains settled on the bottom. This means your Sole has absorbed its maximum amount of precious salts and is ready to deliver maximum potency.
If all the salt has been absorbed, simply add 1 teaspoon of Sole to 8 ounces of fresh water. Going forward it will be important to pay attention to your taste buds. They will greatly help you in judging how much more or less you need. If you find that the water tastes too salty, back off on the dose and try half a teaspoon. On the other hand, if you find yourself craving a saltier taste try adding a little more until you find that point of tasteful perfection. Always use 8 ounces of room temperature water as your baseline. That will guarantee a constant control.
Start out with one dose in the mornings and pay close attention to how you feel. If you so choose, you can drink it down in one go, or sip on it throughout the day. As always, use your discretion as you go forward with your use of this elixir. Salt needs are going to vary on an individual basis. I encourage you to do your own research on this phenomenal supplement, and please feel free to discuss it with your doctor before trying it out.
That’s all for now. Sip Sole and be well.
Yours in health,
