Why Food Isn't As Healthy as It Used to Be -- And How You Can Protect Yourself From Mineral Deficiencies
Did you know that we have to eat significantly MORE food today to get the same nutrients our parents got in the past? It's sad but true. Over-farming, chemical fertilizers and the stripping of nutrients to make processed foods means that food - even fresh fruits and vegetables - are no longer what they used to be. Government data from both American and the United Kingdom have shown that the concentration and range of essential nutrients in the food supply has declined in the last few decades, with double digit declines of iron, zinc, calcium, selenium and other essential nutrients across a wide range of foods.
Today, it may come as no surprise that we are overfed and undernourished. When your body needs more food to get necessary nutrients, it is in effect, starving...even on higher quantities of food. And if you eat processed foods, which are stripped of most of their already low nutrient content, it's no wonder obesity and fatigue are rampant these days. No matter where you look, you can see evidence that Americans are losing energy. From coffee to energy drinks, even kids and teens are looking for a quick energy boost to get through the day.
What's happened to our energy? Our diet is simply deficient in minerals. Even a healthy diet may lack the necessary minerals to boost your energy, detoxify and keep you feeling your best. In fact, your adrenals, your body's chief energy producer (along with your thyroid), need a constant supply of minerals.
Minerals have a variety of functions. Here's a quick list of some important minerals and what they do in your body:
• 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.
• Minerals can even help you sleep better at night!
Here are some of the symptoms that mineral deficiencies can cause:
• Acidic blood
• Low blood sugar
• Anxiety or hyperactivity
• Low energy
• Low libido
• Weight gain
• Poor digestive health
• Low immunity
In fact, studies show that mineral deficiencies are at the root of every serious health problem.
How can you get enough minerals in your diet? For decades Body Ecology founder, Donna Gates, has been teaching about the importance of minerals to feed your adrenals and help your body heal. These days, most high quality mineral supplements come in liquid form, making them too difficult to use for your on-the-go lifestyle. Body Ecology has solved this dilemma by creating Ancient Earth Minerals; a complete source of essential minerals, trace elements, and amino acids in an easy to swallow capsule.
Boost Your Mineral Intake
Ancient Earth Minerals are the highest quality blend of humic, fulvic, micro and macro minerals and amino acids. Ancient Earth Minerals are also the only high quality mineral supplement of its kind that you can take in capsule form, so you can benefit from a bio-available source of minerals and amino acids while on-the-go.
This special blend of minerals and amino acids in Ancient Earth Minerals helps your body:
• Nourish your thyroid and adrenals
• Reduce the signs of aging
• Build immunity
• Chelate heavy metals
Your Most Bio-Available and Detoxifying Source of Minerals
The fulvic and humic minerals (fulvic acid and humic acid) in Ancient Earth Minerals are organic compounds that act as organic mineral carriers and detoxifiers. Research results suggest that humic and fulvic acid complexes enhance mineral and trace element uptake, supporting the maintenance of mineral and trace element balances without harmful buildup in the body's cells. Following dissociation of the minerals and trace elements delivered by the humic/fulvic acid complex, the residual humic acid/fulvic acid complex in Ancient Earth Minerals can chelate heavy metals along the intestinal tract, in turn reducing heavy metal burdens in the digestive system.
The only way the human body can benefit from mineral nutrients is if they are available to be absorbed. Ancient Earth Minerals enhances this absorption process by enabling minerals to pass through cell membranes. The average plant derived mineral is less than 0.00001 micron in size, conceivably the size of a red blood cell. The body is made up of 100 trillion cells that need constant mineral nutrients to support the energy level for healthy, vigorous life. The fulvic acid in Ancient Earth Minerals is the transporter to the body's cells and humic acid is the carrier of minerals, trace elements and amino acids.
Is YOUR Body Starving? Nourish your body With Ancient Earth Minerals. Most people today are literally starving from mineral deficiencies, but you don't have to be one of them.
Nourish yourself with Ancient Earth Minerals and help your body reap the rewards of good health and well-being!
About Body Ecology, the company
After years of extensive study, Body Ecology founder Donna Gates created a back-to-basics approach to restoring health and vitality by understanding the invaluable balance of the human body's "inner ecology".
Donna Gates is a respected authority in the field of digestive health, diet, and nutrition. Donna coined the phrase “inner ecosystem” to describe the network of microbes that maintain our basic physiological processes from digestion to immunity.
In her 30s, Donna began searching for answers to a lifetime of health issues. Several years of research and examination of her own diet led her to slowly heal from years of sensitivity and infection. She replaced her standard American diet with one rich in probiotics and fermented foods and beverages. Donna decided to put together everything she had learned into a book that would be easy for others to follow, and the Body Ecology Diet was born. Through Body Ecology, Donna is able to bring the best of medical science, naturopathy, and ancient Chinese medicine together so that everyone can access her system of health and healing.
Body Ecology offers products geared to one fundamental law of nature: the fact that our digestive systems are intimately linked to our immune, endocrine, circulatory and central nervous systems. Profoundly affecting all these interlocking systems is an amazing world of benevolent bacteria: the microscopic “good guys” that must be present in your intestines for you to be healthy.
Often forgotten or unconsidered, probiotics and enzymes are crucial to a healthy and efficient internal system. When this system is out of balance, a host of medical issues and conditions can arise.
Body Ecology's products are all designed to help cultivate, nourish, cleanse and repair the body's abundant inner ecosystem.
The Body Ecology system of health and healing is comprised of three simple dietary principals that can have a profound impact on how you feel:
• The addition of cultured foods to your diet
• Changing the quality of fats and oils you consume
• Drastically reducing your intake of carbohydrates and sugars
Body Ecology products are designed to restore your system’s harmony through effective nutritional therapy.
More about Donna’s contributions: Donna’s groundbreaking work has been instrumental in transforming the natural foods industry. Donna first introduced the natural sweetener stevia to the US in 1994. Her dedication to educating society on the value of coconut oil has turned the once-demonized ingredient into one promoted by holistic doctors and medical doctors alike.
Donna is also a key figure in the autism movement, working with doctors in the field who view her diet as instrumental in the treatment of the disorder.
Donna has certified hundreds of “Body Ecologists”, who passionately spread her teachings throughout the US, Canada, England, Australia and New Zealand.
