For centuries mankind has been dependent on the food chain to get the minerals necessary to stay healthy. But these minerals seem to be disappearing from our food. What could be the cause? And even more importantly, what can be done to replace them? In this newsletter we will discuss what we feel is the basis of good nutrition. Keep reading to learn more about the current state of our soil and how it may affect your health.
It all starts beneath your feet
Did you know that good nutrition starts with mineral rich soil? Plants need minerals for healthy growth. And it is no surprise that plants grown in mineral rich soil have a greater mineral content. Of course the mineral content of these plants has an effect on the animals that eat them and so on… Now perhaps you are beginning to see how important it is to have healthy soil: soil that is packed with minerals to help sustain life. For all of you gardeners out there: we offer our Plant Power formula, which can enhance the mineral content of your soil…
Our soils are more deficient in minerals today than they were a few hundred years ago. 1 2 Why? Poor farming practices are part of the problem, especially here in America. 2 Overgrazing can also diminish the quality of the soil. 2 And as you can see, poor mineral content in the soil affects the entire food chain. For more information, please read Senate Document 264, which was published back in 1936. Yes, this problem has been going on for many years!
Has much changed since 1936 when it comes to the quality of our soil?
While some efforts have been made including: minimum tillage techniques, crop rotation, and organic farming practices, there is still plenty of work left to do when it comes to actually “restoring” the mineral content in our soils. Please read this page on Land Degradation if you want to get a better idea of the problems we are facing.
If you read the sections above, then you know that it is next to impossible to get the minerals you need from today’s food. And it’s no surprise that most of us are in need of additional minerals. Perhaps this is due to our sometimes hectic lifestyles. Fortunately, our customers have noted improved vitality when taking our Liquid Trace RDA’s in combination with our Legendary Phytogenic Mineral Formula. These two formulas contain a wide variety of minerals and elements, and seem to work well together, according to our customers. We also encourage you to browse through some of these testimonials written about our Legendary Phytogenic Minerals.
If you are in need of a complete daily nutrition formula, then perhaps you should try our Polyphytogenic Complete Mind/Body Formula. This is our most complete nutritional supplement! It contains a broad spectrum of vitamins, minerals, elements, amino acids, and antioxidants. Our customers have said that the Complete Mind/Body Formula is perfect for people on the go; especially for those who cannot always eat as well as they might like.
In the end we strive to keep you informed. It is important to understand that if our soil is not in good health, then we may not be in good health either. Fortunately, we have presented you with some nutritional options that may help turn things around. After all, our Legendary Phytogenic Minerals are created from soil that contains mineral rich plant deposits. In fact, a rancher named T.J. Clark discovered our Phytogenic Minerals back in 1920.
