Um, since when do minerals need digestion to enter the cell in the first place? Zinc isn't a protein, fat, or carb! Yes, supplements do go through the digestive tract, but we don't actually digest them as such, we more, absorb them.They don't... (more)

From all reports, humic/fulvic acid is very safe and effective for heavy metal chelation, mineral absorption, and electrolyte balance. Sunwarrior makes Liquid Light, a natural fulvic acid mineral complex. In some studies done with people exposed... (more)

Yes. I noticed that after I started supplementing 350 mg of Magnesium Citrate every night, my sugar/chocolate cravings diminished a LOT.

I hate the taste. I was using them and switched to bone broth and mineral rich foods instead. I did add them to broth for awhile and they were much more palatable. Could not do it in water. Salty broth masks the taste better.

I don't usually wear make-up but both titanium dioxide and zinc dioxide are sun blocks. So yes, your make-up is giving you some protection. Because it is a sun "block" it acts as a physical barrier, as opposed to a chemical barrier to the sun.... (more)

Oh hey, I have dark curly hair. But it's all-natural. But it requires a lot of maintenance. You can't suddenly get dark, curly hair; no matter what you eat. It depends on what products you use and how you style it. Since this is not BeautyHacks,... (more)

I wonder why is it that unless you supplement, or have a very strong commitment to each mineral, you are likely to have deficiencies in the intake of basic minerals. Magnesium a key mineral is just an example: Unless you have one pound of spinach... (more)

Probably because the soil in which crops are grown in has been slowly depleted of these minerals over time. Therefore, it takes more of them in order to get the necessary amount of vitamins and minerals.

I would talk to your local farmer and see how/if they treat the soil. I think compost and manure would be the two big things to look for. The place I buy most of my vegetables from has just remineralized their soil, and was fertilizing it with... (more)
