I started drinking a New Mineral Drink from Youngevity and I have to say it has been life enhancing! Usually supplements don't do much for me and I prefer using my juicer and drinking green smoothies and taking control of my plant-life diet! However, since I am training for a half marathon in a few weeks my long runs require more aggressive nutrition so I decided to try these Earth Minerals sold through ..
The Mineral Drink I started using is an antioxidant, packed with 115 fruits and vegetables, gluten free, promotes healthy blood sugar levels and is highly absorbable all great for long runs! I also tried this cream called Ultimate CM Cream that was also awesome. It acts as a lubricant to joints and helps repair and rebuild cartilage which is great for running. It has Cetyl Myristoleate in it and we know from science that this ingredient promotes relief of joint discomfort which I need after my long runs! I also gave some of the products to a patient who was desperate and wanted to try these minerals with me!
Let me tell you how I found this company! As faith had it last month I stumbled on a gentleman named Dr. Wallach that many of you may have heard of but his research and company was new to me. I was conducting my usual research for my Neuro-degenerative Disease Project that I am working on at our local University and I wanted an article that was authored by Dr. Wallach. As I tracked down the article I found out about his company called Youngevity and since I sell and recommend many products I naturally checked out this company. I don't know how I missed this company in the past but I believe you find what you need exactly when you need it! What a Blessing it has been!
I recommended the Bone & Joint Program to a patient and friend of mine who has bad joint pain in hands, knees and toes that migrates and has not responded to any other treatments so far. This patient removed all gluten and all food intolerance's based on the ALCAT TEST but was still having joint pain and some joint degenerative changes as well. I figured if these minerals did anything this patient would be able to tell me.
To my surprise and suspicion the patient reported exciting results.....the pain started decreasing in a few days and the patient told me "something was lifting!" (I suspect this was a form of depression driven by the pain and also lack of good quality sleep and REM cycles)
The patient called me a week later and reported that the hand/finger stiffness and pain was much better ( a 2 out of 10 pain scale) and by the time I am writing this report, I can tell you that all of this patients pain is gone! Praise God!
Now let me remind you that we also did Food Sensitivity Testing on this patient and removed all food sensitivities as well. However, there was no decrease in pain until we added the bone & joint program into this patients plan-of-care. I believe knowing and removing the inflammatory food triggers identified by doing the ALCAT Test and also adding the minerals & fatty acids, & osteo-fx seemed to work in this patient's case.
CM Cream is designed for aches and pains.
It is a fact that human biochemistry runs on minerals and we MUST consume minerals from plants and plants are the only source of minerals. We know that minerals work and the only question is finding out why people are not absorbing them.
There are 90 Nutrients that are essential to human health. Something as simple as grey hair is a deficiency in Copper BUT minerals can be very toxic to the body as well. Both extremes are dangerous and mineral blood testing should be done on everyone.
For example, Neal D. Barnard, MD reported that researchers found a surprising link between copper and the APOE e4 allele, that is, the gene linked to Alzheimer's risk. I've learned that 3 metals; copper, iron, and zinc are clearly present in the beta-amyloid plaques of Alzheimer's disease. Copper and Iron appear to spark the production of free radicals that can damage brain cells. Zinc's contribution appears to be different. It seems to encourage beta-amyloid proteins to clump together to form plaques. Iron and copper appear to promote clumping, too, but zinc seems to be much more aggressive in this regard.
When I was in D.C. a few months ago training as PCRM Food Instructor, Dr. Barnard told me to take a look at breakfast cereals, General Mills imagined you wanted all this iron and zinc that they added to a box of Total! Plumbing, cookware, supplement pills like Centrum and fortified cereals all contribute to an overdose of synthetic minerals that cause problems.
If you eat a perfect diet every day you might get all of your vitamins, fatty acids and amino acids but you will never get all the ORGANIC MINERALS your body requires on a daily basis.
Why is this? Well, it is because the soil that our food is grown in is deficient in minerals, a fact that has been documented since 1993! It is impossible to get all the minerals you need regardless of how much you eat, juice or drink of plants.There are 90 Essential Nutrients identified in science and they cannot be manufactured by themselves. We must consume them from plants right out of the earth or supplement if you do not eat enough plant food. Now just think about how deficient you are if you eat the Standard American Diet or ANY processed or FAST food!
Mineral Supplements all vary in absorbability and have the potential to become toxic so here a a quick lesson on minerals
Metallic Minerals - Only 8 to 12% absorbable. They can build to dangerous levels and accumulating in fat tissue, brain cells and liver cells. You usually see these types of minerals in over-the-counter pills like Centrum, One-A-Day or Theragram. A metallic mineral is not organic and the body has a hard time absorbing and excreting it.
Chelated Minerals - This method was patented in 1970. What it does is make metallic minerals more absorbable and much less potentially toxic to the body. Basically the metallic mineral is attached to a carrying agent such as a amino acid.
Colloidal Minerals - These minerals have been processed through a plant and have been biochemically transformed. These minerals are non toxic to the human body and they are very absorbable like up to 90%. This is why you need to consume PLANTS! If you supplement with minerals you want them to be ORGANIC COLLOIDAL MINERALS. The word colloidal only means small. If they don't say ORGANIC don't consume them.
Dr.Wallach's is an advocate for health and has been involved in Biomedical research for 30 years. He has over 70 peer reviewed publications in nutrition and that is how I found him! He won recognition world wide for his important work on the trace mineral selenium.
The products/minerals in his company are 100% plant derived, organic and colloidal minerals. The minerals are straight from the plant with nothing added to them like sugar or flavoring or chemical preservatives. I've come to learn that Dr. Wallach owns the land these minerals are actually mined. This land is perfect chemical-free perfect mineral rich plant matter, geologically speaking, located up in the hills of southeastern Utah!
This plant material was entombed, vacuum-sealed, and preserved through the ages by a gentle blanket of volcanic ash and subsequent layers of additional sediment. The mining site where the minerals come from is a GIFT from the EARTH to Mankind and you can get your hands on these miraculous products right now. I have opened an account with the company so you can purchase the products through my store or you can open your own account! Enjoy! Click Here
My next purchase is going to be the Mineral Make-up! Yes, the RAW Minerals used in this make-up come from the same mine! I'll report on the make-up as soon as I research the products and try them out! I am also going to check out their JavaFit Arabica IMPACT Coffee! It has a blend of 14 beneficial mushroom extracts which we know are very healthy, detoxifies and stops the crash coffee is known for! If your into health you have got to check this company out!
