Minerals are as bio-catalysts of vital importance, necessary for numerous parts of the metabolism of cells.
Because of the total molecular/cellular complexity of all our organs and tissues, and their inter dependency, it is impossible for a single nutrient to heal or correct any condition.
Our normal internal environment, called homeostatis, must be maintained at all times. Our body’s incredible intelligence will go to any length to save our life, even at the expense of stealing certain crucial nutrients from one organ or tissue to supply the greater need of another.
Since the brain is our body’s master controller, it’s life must be maintained above all else. To do this, the brain requires the lion’s share of oxygen and glucose to keep it functioning at optimal level, even at the expense of the supply to other organs. The equal sharing of necessary minerals and other nutrients with the rest of the body, takes second place.
Through the little understood process of biological transmutation, our body is capable, if necessary, to change or “transmuting” some minerals into other minerals, when certain minerals are in short supply. For example, if little or no calcium is available, our body can change silica into calcium to meet the calcium need. However, it’s not possible for our body to transform every nutrient into any others we happen to be deficient in at any moment of time. It is therefore of the upmost importance to supply our body with the raw materials from which it can build and repair all of the tissues and organs.
Some important minerals are: calcium, magnesium and kalium.
