Why Are Minerals Important

There are two major catagories of minerals your body needs they are macrominerals and micro minerals.

Macrominerals are sodium, cloride, calcium, potassium, phosphorus, magnesium and sulfer.

Microminerals are needed in smaller amounts iron, zinc, iodine, selenium, copper, magnesium, chromium, molybdenum, nickel, silicon, vanadium and cobalt.

I won't go into all the ways the body uses these minerals but one key use is...

DNA replication. The body uses minerals to connect the cross members of the DNA strands to the helix.

If you don't have these minerals in sufficient quantity the DNA can be missing information and a defect will persist until the balance is restored.

If you eat food grown in soil where the minerals are not present you won't have them in your food. Even if they would normally be present in certain foods.

I have been on a mission the last 15 years to put minerals back into our soil, so that they will be there for our family and our customers.

This is productive at many different levels in our farming operation. They plants grow better when there is a full spectrum of minerals. They taste better when they have access to all the minerals. They store and keep better when the soil is well mineralized. The plants utilize water and oxygen when there are minerals in the soil.

If you have livestock (we do not) they gain better and have less health problems if they have minerals in their food.
