~ 043007 Ionic Seawater Minerals: An Ideal Source of Vital Trace Mineral Nutrition

Minerals are the most basic building blocks of our bodies. Minerals form the substance of our bodies from our microscopic cellular structures to the large bones of our skeleton. Minerals provide the medium that conducts the bioelectric flow of our nervous system. Minerals are the basis of hormones and enzymes that regulate all our body’s functions. While our bodies can synthesize certain vitamins and amino acids, minerals, the basic building blocks, can only be obtained through the diet.

Stress and toxic exposure deplete our mineral stores as our body works to maintain homeostasis. The good tasting, soft (acidic) bottled water we love to drink is devoid of minerals and tends to leach minerals from our bodies. Finally, as we age, our capacity to absorb and utilize minerals declines, multiplying the impact of mineral deficiency when we need them most. Given these facts, along with the mineral depletion of agricultural soils and prevalence in the American diet of over-processed, preprepared foods we can easily become at risk of chronic mineral deficiency.

By far the most complete, accessible source of minerals is seawater. The naturally occurring mineral profile of seawater is remarkably similar to blood plasma, something no manufactured mineral formula could ever fully duplicate. However, ocean water presents significant obstacles to obtaining dietary minerals. Such is not the case with the Great Salt Lake of Utah . While Salt Lake is a sea like the oceans of the world, concentrating ionic minerals that originate in organic matter washed down into it over eons of time, it is a still, not a churned sea. This allows natural sedimentation that, studies show, results in seawater with an extremely low heavy metal content. Additionally, still-water allows natural stratification that permits extraction of water from a particular stratum to provide an optimal trace mineral profile. This is the source of Liquid Ionic Trace Minerals (LITM).
