My very favorite supplement, a game changer!

By Robyn Openshaw, MSW | Apr 14, 2015

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.)

ultimate-minerals-720x720I then went on a hunt to FIND a plant-based, organic, non-diluted source of humic and fulvic acids.

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.

    Question – will it deplete the effectiveness of an anti-depressant I am taking? I thought I saw someone mention this but wanted to be sure

    1. Robyn says:

      No contraindications for meds, Pam.

  2. Britt says:

    Because this increases cell permeability it can have an indirect effect on how much of the prescription your body actually receives.

  3. Sean says:

    What is the % of DV (daily value) for each of the vitamins in 25 drops of the Ultimate Minerals. And are there DV for trace minerals?

  4. Tammie Carlson says:

    Hi, Love the minerals! But, should I take them while I’m pregnant? Has there been any research done specifically on the effects of using the minerals along with a prenatal?

    1. Kristen says:

      The minerals will most likely help you to absorb your prenatal!

    2. Helen Katy Support says:

      It is during pregnancy that we can become so exceedingly depleted, so I would recommend fortifying your body with them! That’s not a medical opinion, but rather a nutritional one.

  5. Virginia Edwards says:

    My cousin in Austin, TX is new to this. I urged her to go and she got some of the minerals. Then when she read up on them, she said that it is saying that if you mix them with tap water or any water with chlorine in it, the mix becomes cancerous. I can’t find where she read this. Is this something we need to be careful of. Cancer runs in our family and this had her going “yikes”. I get my water from a filtered water bottle filler here at work. I hope it is filtering out all the chlorine, if this is so. Could you please elaborate on this information? I would like to give her some feedback that will give her peace about it.

    1. Robyn says:

      Cancerous? You mean carcinogenic? Well, tap water by itself (chlorine, fluoride, dozens of toxic chemicals) is carcinogenic, in a way, but you should always drink clean water rather than tap water anyway, and so, best if you put Ultimate Minerals in filtered water.

      1. Ro says:

        How do we know of the water is “clean”? Is bottled water (dasani) in this category?

        1. Helen Katy Support says:

          Desani is a very acidic form of bottled water, plus it’s in a plastic bottle, adding to the toxic mix. We recommend filtered water, and ionized water for your best health.

  6. Noelle says:

    I was wondering if you use both the minerals and sole water every morning or are they both providing minerals so one or the other is fine?

    Thank you

    1. Robyn says:

      Noelle, I always use Ultimate Minerals. I’m kind of hit or miss with sole!

      1. Noelle says:

        Thank you!

  7. Lyn R. says:

    I’m VERY interested in purchasing Ultimate Minerals, but I have a few amalgam fillings and I read on the description that UM chelates/removes heavy metals. I’m concerned about that now….. is this best to be avoided by anyone that has amalgams?
    Also, is this something my husband/men can safely take daily? I’m always reading that men should avoid iron in their supplements, but doesn’t just about everyone need trace minerals?

    Thank you,
    Lyn. R

      Hi Lyn, this is Jess, blog manager at GSG. Thanks for your questions concerning Ultimate Minerals. I have sent your questions to Kami our customer support rep. She will reply to you via email very soon. Thanks for following the GSG and stay tuned for more information.

      1. SuLynn says:

        Hi, I’m also wondering about this.

  8. April Webb says:

    What is the shelf life for the mineral supplement?

    1. Robyn says:

      April, there is no expiration date because it lasts forever.

  9. Linda Adams says:

    Do you have to take the minerals in water or can you put it in something like a GNC Lean Shake to hide the taste.

  10. Deborah Casagrande says:

    where can I get the % daily value? I know with the FDA regulations they have made it difficult, for example for herbs companies they can not give you any information.

  11. I recently bought a Life Spa Water Ionizer in the group buy. Will taking the mineral drops be too much withe ionized water?

  12. Sharon Outlaw says:

    I just read the question about amalgam fillings and taking Ultimate Minerals.
    I too have more than a few fillings which I truly believe causes toxicity. I don’t want to make it worse by taking UM. I wish the response would have be posted. I’m wondering if I need to stop taking Ultimate Minerals?
    Thank you.

  13. Julia says:

    Hello, a couple of questions about the minerals.

    1. Is it supposed to be black? It kind of reminds me of the Geritol my mother used to take.

    2. Are there known side effects? I added 1/4 tsp (dropper does not work) to 12 oz of water and after about an hour I started feeling very strange. It took several hours to fade. Just curious if anyone else has experienced any kinds of side effects.

    Thank you

    1. Brittany says:

      This is dangerous if mixed with fluoridated water. Please be careful when choosing the type of water or drink you mix it with. Robyn and her team keep deleting my comments on this but it’s time for them to be more responsible regarding safety and precautions with this product. It can affect how medications are processed and absorbed. It’s critical that anyone selling a material that can increase prescription absorbency CLEARLY states that fact. Certain conditions require prescription medications even with a healthy and clean lifestyle. Certain prescriptions can be dangerous if too much or too little is absorbed by the body. Medications can’t always be avoided so I call on Robyn and her team to be more mindful of this in the future. If my wording is offensive in any way, please do the right thing and clearly state this in a way that is pleasing to you wherever this product is advertised. Thank you for the good work that you do.

      1. Julia says:

        I threw the supplement away. I must say I was very disappointed that no one from the Green Smoothie Girl team responded. I hope they help others when asked, but I have lost confidence.

        Good luck to the GSG team.
