Why do many nutritionists say minerals are more important than vitamins?
"The human body requires at least 60 minerals in order to maintain a disease and ailment free state"
Dr Gary Price-Todd
FRUIT & VEGETABLES
An alarming drop in essential minerals means that the apples and greens of today are nowhere near as good for us as those eaten 60 or more years ago. The World Health Organisation and the UK Ministry of Agriculture have confirmed mineral depletion levels in the soil - In the USA this is about a staggering 85% loss and in Europe it is about a 72% loss.
Some fruits are also becoming sweeter than they were during the last century, leading to fears about tooth decay and obesity. Nutrients needed to help the body and immune system work properly, balance hormones and produce vital blood cells, are dwindling across a wide variety of fruit and vegetables, it emerged.
Approximately 99% of the body is comprised of minerals yet minerals are generally overlooked when nutrition is considered. Did your mother ever remind you to take your minerals? Probably not, but she did say don’t forget to take your vitamins! Why do Doctors, Nutritionists and Health Practitioners constantly promote vitamins without mentioning minerals?
Don’t they know vitamins are basically useless in the absence of minerals?
The human body needs at least 60 trace minerals in order to maintain a disease and ailment free state. If this is true, it’s easy to understand why sickness is so prevalent throughout the world. Foods that are raised or purchased today contain, on average, no more than 16 to 18 minerals. This small number of minerals in plants is due to a mineral deficiency of the soils around the world. Science has proven the soils of the earth did contain approximately 80 minerals in prehistoric times. However, millions of years of wind and rain erosion and centuries of unwise farming practices have drastically reduced the mineral content of the earth’s surface where plants grow.
Dr. Linus Pauling, two times Nobel Laureate, said “one could trace every sickness, every disease and every ailment to a mineral deficiency”
Most nationally advertised mineral supplements come from the earth and are classified as 'metallic' minerals. They are usually available in capsule or tablet form. All metallic minerals come from soil, ground up rocks, salts or ancient seabeds etc. Due to the earths’ mineral deficiency, there are not more than 12 or 15 minerals available to put into most nationally advertised brands.
So what is the difference between plant minerals and metallic minerals?
Metallic minerals are metals and are much more difficult to assimilate because they are harder for the human digestive system to dissolve. Minerals like those that come from tomatoes, carrots, apples were at one time metallic minerals. As the plants grew the metallic minerals passed through the plant roots and through a scientific process known as photosynthesis, the metallic minerals became water-soluble and were broken down in size. This is Mother Nature’s way of converting metallic minerals into a more useable and effective form for human and animal consumption. According to the Colorado School of Mines, a plant mineral (depending on the specific mineral) is hundreds and even thousands of times smaller than a metallic mineral. It is understood that due to the solubility and small size, a plant derived mineral can be more easily assimilated than a metallic mineral. Without question, the absolute best minerals for your body are plant derived minerals.

This mineral product provides up to 75 trace minerals. It is also plant derived, containing the same kind of hydrophilic minerals that are found in fruits and vegetables. These plant minerals are mined from deposits laid down around 70 million years ago. In those time Dinosaurs were able to grow to enormous sizes because they had access to all the minerals and nutrients that were available in the soil.
This type of mineral is unlike a metallic mineral obtained from ancient seabeds, soil or ground up rocks. The human body is NOT designed to absorb, assimilate or use metallic minerals. Metallic minerals have a positive electrical charge whereby plant minerals have a negative charge or what experts call a negative zeta potential. This makes a big difference in the body’s ability to digest these minerals for the utmost benefit. Today’s environment of polluted atmosphere, toxic chemicals, toxic emissions and contaminated water can alter the functions of one’s body on a day-to-day basis.
Minerals that are plant derived are totally natural and posses exactly the same chemical makeup as those found in healthy fruit and vegetables.
Why do we go back to the fridge after we have eaten - it's because the body is demanding more nutrition. We are not receiving it from the modern day foods that we are eating, especially fast and processed foods as well as our fruit and vegetables. Fruit and vegetables especially have seen a huge decrease in mineral composition in the last 60 years or so due to intensive farming methods that are aimed at quantity over quality.
