I’m a supplement snob. Because most supplements out there are made from materials the body can’t process. (Like chalk! rocks! metals!, Or highly processed ingredients. Or isolated nutrients that aren’t helpful when they’ve lost the synergistic properties of the whole plant.)
When I did some lab testing 5 years ago, I was deficient in several minerals and trace minerals, I was astonished. I took supplements, and of course I drank tons of green smoothies. Aren’t greens full of minerals? What more could I do, diet-wise?
I learned that pesticides have heavily depleted humic and fulvic acids in the soil, which is where the plants get THEIR minerals. I learned that the vast majority of mineral supplements are made from rocks. (Which aren’t bioavailable to the human body.)
Because I’d learned that fulvic acid is the richest and most bioavailable form of minerals, anywhere. And I wanted humic acid, too. Between them, they do far more than provide every mineral and trace mineral. They also increase cell permeability. This lets nutrition enter the cell and be utilized better, and it helps the cell push toxins out more effectively, too.
I finally located an organic, American, plant-based source of fulvic AND humic acids. The black, probiotic-rich stuff that USED to be in our soils. I wanted it highly concentrated—not heavily diluted with water
When I started using this product, my hair and nails started growing faster, thicker, longer. I’d had dark circles under my eyes, and they went away. Most significantly, my lifelong insomnia disappeared and, in 4 years now, that has never returned. I fall asleep in minutes rather than hours now.
These amazing benefits are just my own body’s reaction to having a balanced state of highly absorbable nutrients. Of course you will have your own specific response and my own story is not meant to be predictive for anyone else. As with any new protocol, please seek the advice of a competent health care provider.
The body needs trace minerals for everything it does. The neurological system needs minerals to shut down at night, and to wake up in the morning. So, don’t put your Ultimate Minerals in your green smoothie. It’s perfect, as recommended, in water right before bed and first thing in the morning—when your mineral reserves are most depleted, and your neurological system most in need of food!
I hope you stock up on my very favorite thing, the highly concentrated GreenSmoothieGirl Ultimate Minerals, your fulvic/humic acid compound, a plant-based way to supplement your whole-foods diet.
