Minerals You’re Probably Missing
This trace mineral is an antioxidant that plays a crucial role in metabolism because it directly activates enzymes to do their jobs.1 It even activates one enzyme in particular (prolidase) to stimulate the production of collagen, aiding in wound healing and connective tissue formation.2 Perhaps most importantly, manganese is critical for the formation of healthy cartilage and bone and may help to prevent osteoporosis.3
Vanadium is an interesting element because it has beneficial effects on two of the biggest epidemics in the US. First, it has been shown to mimic the action of insulin (meaning it can lower blood sugar to normal levels) and therefore may be useful in treating and preventing diabetes.4 This essential trace mineral may also be useful in preventing heart disease.5 Vanadium is especially beneficial when taken with chromium.
Germanium acts as a semiconductor that aids in cellular communication and helps the body’s organs function more efficiently. This trace element has been found to activate the immune system.6 It also may have anticancer effects in that it “enhances natural killer cell activity, and inhibits tumor and metastatic growth.”7
Flu season is the time that silver tends to really come in handy. Silver is now being recognized by modern science for its antiviral potential to fight the flu during the early stages, as well as HIV and hepatitis B.8 The power of silver goes beyond viruses; another recent study confirmed that silver had “high bactericidal activity” against staph, E. coli, and pseudomonas, as well as fungicidal activity against candida.9
Gold is for brain health! A groundbreaking research study showed that subjects taking colloidal gold over a 4-week period increased their average IQ scores by a whopping 20%, compared to scores before the gold was administered.10 The gold supplement by Mother Earth Minerals that we offer here at Sunfood far surpasses colloidal minerals in quality and absorbability. Here’s why….
