Trace Minerals: The What, the Why, and the Wherefore


Trace Minerals: The What, The Why, and the Wherefore

Chemical and electrical chain reactions are happening within your body at every moment. These processes can only happen properly if the right balance of minerals is continually being supplied to your system. Iron for your blood, sulfur for your muscles, calcium for your bones, and a myriad of many other elements in balanced trace amounts help to ensure the proper function of your body.

There are over 30 other minerals which our bodies need in infinitesimal, teeny-tiny amounts, but without them it cannot function at it’s full potential and disease may even develop.

These minerals, often called “trace minerals“,  include many somewhat obscure minerals, like selenium, silicon, manganese, boron, copper, cobalt and even germanium.

Where Can I Get my Trace Minerals?

Sea Salt or Real Salt: Everyone has heard about the evils of salt and how we should run for the hills if we see any that might possibly be consumed in front of us. But actually, it’s table salt that is the villain. Good quality, unrefined sea salt can contain up to 92 minerals (while table salt contains only 2- sodium and chloride.) The minerals are leached out of the salt, repackaged, and sold separately…and expensively! It’s far better to get both your minerals and salt at once, the way it happens naturally. The way God made to work.

Rapadura or Whole Cane Sugar: 

Many nutrients are necessary for your body to digest the sugars that you eat. If these vitamins and minerals are not present in the sugar itself, your body must take them out of your bones, your teeth, and other tissues. Sugar cane is naturally rich in the minerals calcium, phosphorous, chromium, magnesium, cobalt, copper, iron, zinc and manganese. It also contains vitamins A, C, B1, B2, B6, niacin, and pantothenic acid, which work synergistically with the minerals to nourish the body. Rapadura retains all of these nutrients.Because rapadura is dehydrated at low heat, and not separated from the molasses, the natural balance of vitamins and minerals present in the sugar cane have been retained.  That is THE most important property of rapadura that cannot be claimed by any other type of sugar, including sucanat (which is made by separating the sugars from the molasses and then recombining most of the molasses with the sugar).
