Mineral Supplement Safety! Are You Getting What You Need?

Over the last couple of weeks, a popular mineral supplement has received a great deal of scrutiny. We have received many questions about which mineral supplements are safe to use.

Recent concern in the holistic community revolves around minerals sourced from black mica, or biotite, which may contain toxic levels of minerals, such as iron, and purification agents, such as aluminum sulfate. There is a rigorous investigation underway to determine if there is validity in these claims.

Taking a safe mineral supplement will help your body to better absorb nutrients, use vitamins, and support healthy cellular function - while eliminating environmental toxins.

Our minerals are sourced from ancient plant material that grew from a fresh water source more than 6,000 years ago. In addition to key amino acids, Ancient Earth Minerals consists of a blend of humic and fulvic acid that naturally contain a wide and balanced spectrum of minerals that are essential to growth, strength, and vitality.

Humic substances are minimally processed and naturally have maximum bioavailability. This means that the minerals found in humic and fulvic acid are inherently rich and easy for your body to understand and use.

This is because humic substances are formed when organic plant matter goes through biodegradation over a very, very long period of time.

With the help of friendly microbes in the soil, over time the organic plant material in Ancient Earth Minerals has undergone the maximum amount of biodegradation. From this natural process that cannot be reproduced in a lab or synthetically, humic and fulvic acid are formed and prepared for use.

Ancient decomposed plant matter that contains both humic and fulvic acid has also been used for centuries in traditional medicine. Why is this? What do humic and fulvic acid do in the body? The minerals found in humic and fulvic acid:

  • Allow the body to absorb more nutrients.
  • Assist the body in using key amino acids.
  • Help with the uptake and use of vitamins.
  • Can easily penetrate cell membranes and support cellular function.
  • Gently promote the detoxification of environmental toxins and heavy metals.

The Body Ecology Principle of Uniqueness tells us that the best approach in health is one that is specifically tailored to fit you and your individual needs.

While getting nutrients from whole foods and traditionally prepared foods is always safer than popping a pill, sometimes the body needs a little extra support. This is especially true when exposed to toxins in our air, water, and food.

If your diet is anything close to the standard American diet, then it is a good idea to make dietary changes while also choosing to supplement key nutrients that have been missing from your diet.
