NHS25: Our Food is Becoming Less Nutritious!27.02.2013

Where Did All The Minerals Go?
Where did all the minerals go... and why should you care about them anyway?
Because your energy is lacking and your health is not great.
Minerals are involved in every possible life process at the cellular level. This means that for every heart beat, for every thought, for every feeling to take place, you need the right minerals.
But the minerals are not there... why? Because you are not getting enough of them in your food. And why do I know that? Because of scientific studies published about that very topic.
- Road rage is an expression of magnesium deficiency
- PMS is tied to an iodine deficit
- Aggression is tied to a copper/zinc imbalance and
- Weight management is tied to chromium.
And that's just off the top of my head.
There is a way to avoid all this trouble... Mineral Supplements.
We have been offering mineral supplementation for years. All these products help restore the mineral balance we all require to keep well.
Our Food is Becoming Less Nutritious!
When you grow foods using NPK (nitrogen-phosphorus-potassium) fertilizer, the plants grow fast, and reach the appearance of healthy produce, but they are hollow. They look good in shape, but their mineral content is less than half of what it was just 60 years ago.
"The faster a plant grows is pushed, the more intensive the production system, the higher the yield goal, the greater the chance that the harvest from that crop will be deficient in some set of minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants."
~ Chuck Benbrook, science advisor to the Greenfield, Massachussets-based Organic Center for Education and Promotion
Well, yes. What else would you expect? The plants are growing without pulling in the minerals they used to get when they were allowed to grow at natural rates.
So now what? We believe that supplementation is the only way out, until we all as a society decide that we have to demand quality food, and by quality I mean nutrients, not looks.
A study of 43 vegetables and fruits suggests their nutritional value has declined in the past 50 years, scientists say. The researchers suggested the decline may result from the fact that farmers have been planting crops designed to improve traits other than nutritional value, such as size. Broccoli - a favorite among many mothers, thanks to its alleged nutritional value - is one of the many garden crops whose nutrient content has been declining in recent decades, according to studies.
The researchers said the study also raises the possibility that similar declines might have affected other food crops, such as grains. More research is required to check whether this is so, said Donald Davis, the study's lead author. The study was designed to investigate the effects of modern agricultural methods on foods' nutrient content. Davis and colleagues studied U.S. Department of Agriculture data on garden crops, mostly vegetables, but also melons and strawberries, comparing data from both 1950 and 1999.
I can express the importance of minerals this way:
Your aura is the reflection of your well-being...
Your aura is dependent on the electric charge your cells are able to carry...
This electric charge is directly related to the mineral content of your body fluids involved in these exchanges.
In other words: the total dissolved solids in your cellular structures will dictate how well you feel and function.
The quality of minerals within you will directly influence the quality of your experience as a living being.
You have to supplement with minerals to make up for the deficit of our depleted foods grown in depleted soils that lack the minerals we so urgently need.
To your health!
