H.E.S. TRACE MINERALS (CONCENTRACE)
TRACE MINERALS: NATURAL BALANCE, PERFECT SOLUTION /
Dr. Alexis Carrel, Winner of the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 1912, states,
“Soil is the basis of all human life and our only hope for a healthy world…. All of life will be either healthy or unhealthy according to the fertility of the soil. Minerals in the soil control the metabolism of cells in plant, animal and man….* Diseases are created chiefly by destroying the harmony reigning among mineral substances present in infinitesimal amounts in air, water and food, but most importantly in the soil.” * Even the American Medical Association recognizes the importance of minerals in our diet. “Variations in the distribution of certain minerals in the environment are known to have an effect on health.”
Keeping minerals in proper balance throughout the body while providing all of them in sufficient quantities needed for optimal health is complex. This is further complicated when using a bullet approach based on the latest research that finds specific deficiencies and then supplements the diet with just that particular nutrient: The complexity of the mineral imbalance problem is apparent. It is apparent that our understanding of the mechanisms of mineral imbalances is fragmentary. New inter-relationships are constantly being discovered. We are presently recognizing and correcting only a small fraction of the mineral imbalance problems plaguing animals and man.
Imbalanced interactions cause many problems when we consistently consume single processed or refined minerals that are out of proportion with the other minerals and trace minerals. This is particularly evident when it comes to the most commonly refined mineral that South Africans take into their diet, sodium chloride (table salt) and it’s effects on hypertension.
Clearly, nutrients function interactively both in the body and in their impact on blood pressure regulation. Whenever the consumption of a single nutrient is significantly altered, an entirely new dietary pattern is created. Nutrients occur in clusters in the diet and may therefore act synergistically to alter physiologic variables such as blood pressure.
These relationships can, however, have an equally profound benefit on human health when minerals are consumed in proper ratios. Certain minerals and trace elements, when found in proper balance, can serve additional non-classical roles such as acting as antioxidants. Minerals and trace elements can also help each other in the process of assimilation and add additional safety buffers for minerals that have the potential of being toxic to human health.
Within the blood stream, lymphatic fluid, cells and extracellular fluid, minerals and trace elements can be found completely dissociated into solution , which can also be called electrolyte or ionic form. In this state, they all have specific positive or negative electrical signatures that cause a dynamic equilibrium to take place. The body can use minor changes in this equilibrium to create proper osmotic pressure and move nutrients to the areas that need them most and create electrical impulses that run the entire nervous system.
This same equilibrium can also be found in the seas around the world where minerals and trace minerals have collected and concentrated in liquid ionic form for millions of years. It is astounding to realize that the dynamic equilibrium that takes place with liquid ionic minerals and trace elements has created the same basic balance in sea water that is found in healthy blood plasma and lymphatic fluid.
Utah’s Great Salt Lake, where Mineral Resources International harvest Low Sodium ConcenTrace® Ionic Trace Mineral Drops, is ten times more concentrated than sea water, and the largest body of concentrated sea water in the world and is particularly rich in certain minerals and trace minerals like magnesium, selenium, lithium, and boron which are vitally important to human health.
“The Great Salt Lake [has] concentrated many of the same minerals found in the sea through geothermal and evaporative processes. These natural sources of the elements can provide a rich source of minerals compatible to human physiological needs.” 1
“Because of it’s high concentration, the dynamic equilibrium has caused the Great Salt Lake to be uniquely low in certain toxic, heavy metals: … The total soluble concentrations of heavy metals in the water are extremely low. The heavy metals in the lake, along with clays, organic materials and carbonates, are precipitating to the sediments and deep brines where anaerobic conditions and sulfide formed by sulfate reducing bacteria immobilize the metals. The lake thus avoids accumulation of heavy metals and is nontoxic and self-cleansing.”
Like Your Body, It Only Lights Up with “Ionic” Trace Minerals
Every second of every day your body relies on ionic minerals and trace minerals to conduct and generate billions of tiny electrical impulses. Without these impulses, not a single muscle, including your heart, would be able to function.
Your brain would not function and the cells would not be able to use osmosis to balance water pressure and absorb nutrients. In fact, “many vital body processes depend on the movement of ions across cell membranes. Recent research indicates that minerals may play a significant role against a variety of degenerative diseases and processes.* They may also prevent and reduce injury from environmental pollutants and enhance the ability to work and learn. They can also protect the body from the effects of toxic minerals.
