Mineral Essence contains 80 plus ionic trace minerals. These minerals
have the smallest molecular form, which facilitates their transmission across
a lipid barrier (as in a cell membrane). Trace minerals are very vital elements
of the human body. Without them, we would lose the electrolyte balance in our
cells, which would contribute to premature aging and disease. Heart disease,
which is the number one killer in America, may start from a trace mineral defiency
in the smooth muscles of the heart. Trace minerals play an important part in immune
and metabolism functions. For example, zinc carries out 200 enzyme functions and
protects the prostate, skin hair and nails. Magnesium has the responsibility of 300
enzyme functions, with many that are heart related. Trace minerals are as vital as
oxygen. When combined with honey and royal jelly, they support blood sugar and help
with energy and hormonal balance.
The fluids of the body are largely ionic. Ions regulate acid-base balance and water
balance and serve essential roles in nerve condition, muscle contraction, heart action,
blood clotting, protein metabolism, bone and tooth formation, and enzyme activation.
In fact, every body process is dependent on ions. This action then becomes the energy
source that initiates body functions ranging from muscle contraction to creative thought.
The essential oil of cinnamon is antiviral, antibacterial and is a very powerful antioxidant
containing high levels of phenols, which are the oxygenating molecules that work as a catalyst.
Lemon promotes leukocyte production, which is an important function of the immune system.
Peppermint is antibacterial and is a great support to the nervous system. These oils improve
nutritional delivery and greatly enhance the taste of Mineral Essence.
