Where did all those minerals go?
Our soils have been so overworked and underpaid – I mean undernourished – because modern large-scale farming practices are so focused on maximum production, not maximum nutrition. Overworked and undernourished soils cannot produce food packed with nutrients!
In the last decade nutrition research has taken off, and now we know so much more about the importance of nutrients, and where to get them. Any mainstream health practitioner who keeps up with our changing times will know that even a healthy diet needs more.
The reality – as I’ve already said – is that our food contains less nutrition than it did fifty years ago. And most of us eat so many processed foods that we’re not even touching foods from depleted soil! So where does that leave us?
Supplementation is NECESSARY For Health!
Even if we were to eat a diet full of fruits and vegetables, the cold hard fact is that our fruits and vegetables do NOT contain anywhere near the amount of nutrients that they did just a few decades ago. Not to mention how depleted they have become since our grandparent’s days!
Our civilization is starving for nutrients that are lacking in our food chain, because minerals have been depleted from our soils, and other nutrients are destroyed in the processing and cooking of almost all the foods we eat. This type of malnutrition is often the cause of pain and chronic degenerative diseases.
Have you heard the phrase “over-fed but under-nourished”?
Even though caloric intake is abundant, many bodies lack proper nourishment.
Our Food is Becoming Less and Less Nutritious!
Farmers have been planting crops designed to improve traits other than nutritional value, such as size. After 70 years of growing food with NPK (nitrogen-phosphorus-potassium) fertilizer, our foods grow fast, quickly reaching the appearance of healthy produce, but they’re lacking nutrients. The plants grow without pulling in the minerals they used to get when they grew at natural rates.
Depleted Soils Keep You Nutrient Deficient
More than ever before, supplementation is crucial for health – the only way to ward off pain and chronic degenerative diseases. If your energy is down and feel that your health could be better, then you need to get more minerals into your body.
Minerals… what do they do for me?
Minerals are involved in every 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. Cells deficient in minerals are working under stress and age prematurely.
- Road rage is an expression of magnesium deficiency
- PMS is tied to an iodine deficit
- Aggression is tied to a copper/zinc imbalance
- Weight management is tied to chromium
And those are just off the top of my head. The quality of minerals within you directly influences 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.
Like vitamins, minerals work with enzymes as coenzymes, allowing all activities in your body to unfold efficiently. Minerals are required for all metabolic processes as well as proper composition of your body fluids, the formation of your blood and bones. They are also critically important for healthy nerve function.
These include calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium and phosphorus. They’re needed in larger amounts than trace minerals, and their deficiencies and imbalances will quickly cause illness.
These include sulfur, zinc, iron, copper, manganese, chromium, selenium, and iodine and many others. Although very small amounts of trace minerals are required, they are just as important for your good health as the major minerals.
Calcium and Magnesium regulate your sympathetic Autonomic nervous system (SNS) – This controls your “fight or flight” reaction – stimulated by calcium and inhibited by magnesium. Imbalance causes SNS dominance, an uptight nervous, jittery person. Magnesium will calm you down and bring back your sunny personality.
Sodium and Potassium regulate your parasympathetic nervous system (PSNS) –
This controls your “rest & digest” reaction – stimulated by potassium and inhibited by sodium. Imbalance causes PSNS dominance (quite rare) a lethargic, tired, slow moving person. Supplementing potassium may be all you need to revive you out of evening fatigue.
The most important point about your supplements…
It’s about absorbability.
If your body doesn’t absorb the nutrients, the supplement is useless.
Minerals are naturally occurring elements found in rocks on the earth. As rocks erode over millions of years, they break down into tiny fragments of dust and sand. This mineral powder accumulates to form the basis of soil, which is teeming with microbes that help plants utilize the minerals.
Plants take minerals from the soil, THEN your body takes minerals and other nutrients from the plant. This makes them virtually 100% bioavailable for your body, meaning your body actually absorbs and uses all the nutrients for healing and maintaining your health.
Your body instinctively knows how to absorb minerals from plants.
Hard to believe that many mineral supplements are derived from cheaper sources like actual rocks. How do you think your body would get nutrients from a rock? It can’t. Your body is designed to eat plants, not rocks.

Nature feeds us with plants ~ Drucker Labs does too!
Drucker Labs products use intraCELL V Technology – a new, proprietary carbon-bond technology. As plant matter breaks down with microbial action, the nutrients convert into their most digestible and usable form. These microbe-formed nutrients are vital to proper human nutrition – and the basis of Drucker Labs intraCELL V technology, used in all their products.
Drucker Labs Uses Organic Minerals
Scientifically, organic means containing living carbon – a natural component of all living tissue and body chemistry. Carbon participates in most metabolic processes. Organic (carbon-based) minerals can only be obtained from humified and enriched soils (over hundreds of years) from once living plant matter. This slowly creates soil with living organic soil-based nutrients – vital to proper human nutrition.
Drucker Labs takes necessary precautions (and spares no expense) to preserve nutrients and organic carbon bonds in the process of extracting and manufacturing their products. It takes a full 40 days to produce just one bottle.
