Minerals are the bottom line in nutrition. Most of them are needed for health. They cannot be created. They must be consumed.

Minerals are absolutely essential for the proper functioning of living organisms. Depleted minerals in the soils and our diet is a major reason for health problems. This is common due to chemical agriculture and processed food products.

Foods and their nutrients are made up of minerals organized in many compounds. These perform various needed tasks in the body, including repair and replacement of cells and tissues.

Magnesium is a key mineral for our health that is often overlooked with so much attention on calcium.

Calcium is the most prevalent mineral in the body and is often quite deficient. Most calcium supplements are poorly absorbed. At ReallyWell.com we have well-absorbed ionic magnesium and trace minerals as well as amazingly well-absorbed calcium.

The quantity, quality and variety of both minerals and microbes in the soil our food grows in, as well as in the body, have a great bearing on health and longevity. Civilizations have risen and fallen based on failure to maintain healthy soil quality. That is now happening in North America.

Organic mineral nutrients from good soils and super foods and/or supplements with good absorption are needed to support the body‘s systems, our mental functions, our creative abilities and our culture.

Choose organically grown foods, herbs and super foods whenever possible, which usually means a good mineral content. If you have the opportunity to grow your own food, building soil rich in minerals, healthy bacteria and humic acids is the key to great success and benefits.
