BodyBio Liquid Minerals Set: #1-9 is a complete set of the minerals your body needs in highly bioavailable liquid form. These minerals are absolutely essential for our body to function in a healthy matter.
There are actually many reasons supplementing essential minerals is important.
Why Use Liquid Minerals?
1...Crops grown decades ago were much richer in vitamins and minerals than the varieties most of us get today. Modern intensive agricultural methods have stripped increasing amounts of essential nutrients from the soil our food grows in.
2...Water is depleted of minerals due to modern production methods.
3...Our bodies need adequate minerals to deal with toxins. When more toxins are present, you need more nutrients, and if you're like most human beings, you're exposed to a ton of toxins on a daily basis.
This set by Body Bio contains nine liquid minerals likely missing from your diet.
Health Benefits of Various Minerals
Potassium is involved in cardiovascular and nerve function, and elimination of waste. It’s essential for healthy cell function, is involved in pH balance by neutralizing acids, and assists in metabolic processes.
Zinc is an antioxidant and is very important for your body’s immune function, growth and repair of the body. It’s also a mandatory co-factor for over 100 enzymes.
Magnesium is necessary for over 300 enzymatic reactions in your body. It’s essential for nerve and muscle function by supporting nerve relaxation and relieving stress. Magnesium is often used to promote more restful sleep, and also promotes regular bowels.
Copper is essential for collagen stability, iron absorption and preventing free radical damage. It helps regulate several pathways in the body, including energy production and brain function. It’s also involved in the formation of hemoglobin and red blood cells, assists in protein metabolism, and supports enzyme reactions.
Chromium supports normal insulin function and healthy blood sugar levels. It’s also important for lipid metabolism.
Manganese supports carbohydrate, bone, and lipid metabolism. It also supports memory and mental function.
Molybdenum is important for regulating pH, and also supports an overall healthy metabolism, including metabolism of fats and carbohydrates. This mineral is found in the bones, liver, and kidneys, and helps to support healthy red blood cells. Users report an overall sense of wellbeing and better sleep.
Selenium is a potent antioxidant that can reduce your body’s retention of toxic metals. It supports tissue elasticity, fertility and normal body growth and development, and is crucial for proper functioning of the heart muscles.
How to Test Mineral Levels Using Body Bio's Liquid Mineral Test Kit
3 NO TASTE
4 HMMMM…TASTE SOMETHING (This is the goal. Your body is telling you you’re getting adequate amounts of this mineral.)
6 DON’T LIKE
7 PRETTY BAD
If the mineral taste lands in the 1, 2, or 3 category, you're deficient in that mineral, and you need to add it to your daily drink.
If the mineral taste lands in the 4, 5, 6, or 7 range, your body is saying, "I don't want this right now; maybe next time." Omit this mineral from your drink today, but test regularly.
Once you determine which minerals your body is deficient in, use the BodyBio Liquid Minerals Set to supplement with. You can test each mineral daily and at a minimum of once per week. Add your minerals to something with vitamin C, which increases bioavailability of the minerals. We like to use LiveSuperfoods Baobab Powder since it contains 8x more vitamin C than oranges! Camu Camu powder is a superfood that contains a high amount of natural vitamin C.
To test your body for the presence of heavy metals (bad, bad, bad!), try out a Hair Mineral Analysis. It also reveals mineral and mineral ratio deficiencies. It's a cool deal.
