WHY ARE MINERALS SO IMPORTANT TO HEALTH AND VITALITY?
Today’s average person has what doctors call “sticky blood” that comes from everyday occurrences like eating fatty foods, having poor eating habits, increased sugar consumption. Certain medications, carbon monoxide, excessive caffeine, and alcohol, as well as stress can cause red blood cells to stick together and “stack up” like a roll of coins, preventing nutrients from being properly absorbed.
Minerals may be the long forgotten and generally overlooked aspect of a healthy nutritional profile. Depleted from soils, we now find it harder to actually get the minerals we need from the foods we eat. In addition, our bodies require minerals that can easily be absorbed and used.
That makes supplementing even more necessary than ever . . . and choosing the right supplements can mean the difference between actually getting what you pay for, or throwing your money away on minerals that are ineffective.
Minerals help regulate every chemical reaction in the body including water balance, blood sugar regulation, bone development and regeneration, immune support, anti-aging and disease prevention, hormone regulation – and many more functions.
Minerals aid in sleep as well as daily energy. They can have an antioxidant effect like with selenium, or a blood-building effect like with iron, potassium, and copper.
- Magnesium helps convert blood sugar to energy, and is the ‘anti-stress’ mineral.
- Calcium is the most abundant mineral in your body; it initiates DNA synthesis, maintains bone health and strong teeth.
- Potassium maintains acid/alkaline balance in your blood.
- Zinc promotes proper nerve, immune and digestive health and boosts immunity.
- Phosphorous helps maintain heart regularity, provides energy and aids in metabolism of fats and starches.
BLOOD, THE FLUID OF LIFE
Why do doctors always check blood? The information derived from blood-work helps inform your health care provider. It gives them a look inside regarding imbalances, values that are too high or too low, or numbers that could indicate signs of disease of distress. Blood is more than a fluid – it’s a life force system of defense, repair, distribution, clean-up, hydration, oxygenation, and so much more.
It carries the emotions of the heart, pain of the past, and hope for the future. Therefore, it’s of the utmost importance we begin to look at blood differently to provide it with essential – and vital – nutrients for optimal support.
Under a microscope, normal red blood cells look more like balls than pancakes – rounder and full of water. In this healthy state of optimal osmotic pressure, red blood cells carry water, oxygen, and nutrients such as minerals easily and effectively throughout the body. Without osmotic pressure, blood cells tend to stick together.
In live blood analysis, this might even look like clumping. Cells that are clumped together are compromised. They’re not as effective in circulating nutrients, oxygen, and water as well as performing other vital functions. Fortunately, the body responds well to essential, trace minerals taken daily.
WHICH MINERAL SUPPLEMENT IS BEST?
Restore from Navan is a whole food supplement extract from ancient deep sea phtyo-plankton that delivers a rapid increase of internal blood cell pressure to speed absorption, enabling the body to take maximum advantage of the nutrients in foods and supplements. The electrolytes are small enough to penetrate your cell membranes, to bind with your cells, and to be carried wherever they are needed in the body.
At the microscopic level of human cells, Restore from Navan supports healthy cell performance – ultimate support for your cells. Restore contains 92 trace minerals, enzymes, amino acids, and essential electrolytes that charge your cells, rejuvenate them, and space them apart so they can float freely through your body.
Once these blood cells are apart and have regained a healthy shape and fluidity, the cells can absorb nutrients and eliminate toxins at a much higher capacity. Nutrients are delivered inside your cells far better than before. (That’s why I especially like the synergy of using Restore with Daily Detox Plus – also from Navan.)
Restore is quick to use and deliver by adding a few drops to food, water, or your favorite beverage.
