Plant foods are synthesized from the minerals in the earth. When we eat these foods we re-absorb them into the body.
It is therefore important that the soils that grow our food are rich and abundant in the elements we need to support our overall health and vitality.
Mineralization offers a stability and grounding quality that feeds our bodies all the essential ingredients to a healthy long life.
They are important pieces to the "superhealth puzzle", providing a web that bonds the physical structure of the cells and the energetic communication between them.
The body requires both minerals and trace minerals to function at optimal levels. A majority of our nutrient intake comes from the major bulk minerals.
These essential nutrients are contained in the water of all raw fruits and vegetables. Eating a raw food diet ensures that you are getting your supply of minerals because they are not being cooked out of your food.
Helps to build bones, regulates muscle contractions, aids in absorption of Vit B12, activates lipase enzyme which splits fat molecules, and maintains nerve structure.

Is needed for healthy tissues, skin, bone, and cartilage formation. Helps with brain, nervous system, immune and blood sugar functions.
Sources: alfalfa, bee pollen, cacao, chickweed, coconut water, dandelion, dock, green leafy vegetables, garbanzo bean, miso, nettles, nuts and seeds, rasberry leaf, seaweed.
Needed in small amounts for the synthesis of nitrogen. Provides for a healthy cell structure and sex drive.
Sources: beans and sprouted beans, green cabbage, green leafy vegetables, spinach.
Promotes cell formation and growth. Protects the immune system against free radicals and prevents the oxidation of fats.

A necessary mineral for cell regeneration, tissue growth and repair. Helps in energy metabolism and provides for the production of sex hormones and immune system strength. Protects the prostate.
Sources: alfalfa leaf, beans, bee pollen, burdock, cacao, kelp, goji, green leafy vegetables, marine phytoplankton, milk thistle seeds, mushrooms, nettles, onions, nuts and seeds, rye, sarsaparilla, spirulina, all super sprouts.
Helps to maintain blood pressure and regulates cellular fluids and nutrient equilibrium. Good for muscle contractions and tissue elasticity.
Helps regulate movement of fluids in and out of body cells. It purifies the blood, transmits nerve impulses, regulates blood pressure and relaxes the muscles.
Increases collagen production, which causes an increase in bone flexibility and calcium needed to maintain strong bones, ligaments and healthy joints.
Sources: alfalfa sprouts, burdock, cauliflower, celery, cucumbers, hemp seeds, horsetail, kelp, green leafy vegetables, leeks, wild rice, wheatgrass.
Important for a healthy hair, skin and nails. It also helps maintain oxygen balance for proper brain function. It rids the body of parasites and improves skin elasticity and tissue regeneration.
Juicing is the quick, sure fire way to get immediate, easy to absorb, mineral nutrition into the body. Most food sources in our guide, if you've noticed, all have several things in common:
These are the foods we would start with for severe mineral depletion. This includes a program of juicing twice or three times a day and consuming ample amount of seaweeds, algaes, herbal teas, sprouts and dark leafy greens in your daily diet.
Another one of my favorite ways that will immediately remineralize the body is by adding, the seaweed, kelp to your diet.
I add about 1-2 teaspoons of kelp granules to my raw soups or make a nourishing seaweed soup with miso and shiitake for an extra mineral boost when I need it.
Over time, nutrients get lost by unhealthy farming practices that cause soil erosion and mineral deficient crops. It is important that you know the sources of your food. Either by growing them yourself or buying local organic produce.
We recommend growing your own green super sprouts, harvesting seaweeds and supplementing your diet with wild herbs and teas. Together with soil depletion and environmental changes that can stress our immune system, it is best to go for the most nutrient dense superfoods you can find!!
