You’ve probably been hearing a lot about minerals on social media. They’ve kind of become a sort of ‘hot topic’ amongst the health and wellness community. This might have left you wondering “why are minerals so important?” Well, that is what we are here to answer for you today.
Minerals first came onto our radar back in 2021. Our founder Jacquelynn was going through some health struggles and was led into the wonderful world of minerals. Once Jacquelynn started to learn about these magnificent nutrients, there was no turning back. So, let’s dive into why minerals are so important? There is only one simple answer to this question.
Minerals Are The Spark Plugs of Life
Minerals are commonly referred to as the ‘spark plugs’ of life. Yes, that is a vehicle reference and if you don’t know, spark plugs in your car are what create a ‘spark’ that starts the engine and other important functions. And they work simuliary within the body.
Minerals are not only the spark plugs of life within our bodies but they are also needed within every living thing on this planet. They are needed in proper balance in the soil to sustain healthy plants and foods, those plants and foods have those minerals that are then eaten by bugs, and animals that fuel their bodies, and minerals are found to do the same within the oceans, rivers, and lakes for all ocean and water life.
When we start to see that minerals are needed to ‘spark’ key reactions within our bodies we can begin to understand how they are the foundation for proper health.
So, what are some of these ‘key reactions’ that minerals are needed for?
Minerals are needed to:
- Create electrical impulses that contract our heart to create our heartbeat.
- Manage our ‘fight or flight response’
- Create hormones
- Breakdown and digest food
- Produce of energy within our cells known as ATP.
- Aid in detoxification of heavy metals
- Repair cells
- Manage a healthy immune system
- Maintain healthy bones and teeth
- Maintain regular menstrual cycles and fertility
- Regulate blood sugar
- Maintain healthy function of the thyroid and adrenals
- Transport nutrients throughout the body
And so much more. Minerals are really at the base of almost every function within our bodies. Without minerals there would be no life on this planet. And when minerals are imbalanced or deficient within the body we start to see manifestation of symptoms and disease. Which is why when we work with clients we work at addressing their mineral imbalances first. When we do this we start to see many symptoms such as, thyroid issues, hormone imbalances, exhaustion, acne, etc. reverse once the body starts to get the nutrients it needs to rebalance what was off in the first place.
