According to the late health and nutrition researcher, Dr. Linus Pauling, “you can trace every ailment, every sickness and every disease to an Organic Trace Mineral deficiency.” Dr. Pauling was a much-acclaimed and heralded leader in researching disease and received 2 Nobel Prizes in his lifetime.
Organic Trace Minerals are needed by the human body for optimum health. Organic Trace Minerals help the body create “balance” - also known as "homeostasis."
Because of the way we grow most of our food, and with all the fertilizers, pesticides, and non-organic farming methods, soil depletion has caused a loss of the organic trace minerals that used to be in our foods that were grown on the farm.
Without Organic Trace Minerals, the body cannot utilize amino acids, fats and vitamins properly. Organic Trace Minerals are absolutely necessary and required by every cell, organ, gland, muscle and vital life functions in the human body. Without Organic Trace Minerals, optimum health cannot be achieved, and diseases and accelerated oxidation occurs in the body.
Organic Trace Minerals are “the gift of life” and cellular nutrition and function becomes impossible without all of the essential Organic Trace Minerals.
"Do you know that most of us today are suffering from certain dangerous diet deficiencies which cannot be remedied until depleted soils from which our food comes are brought into proper mineral balance?"
"The alarming fact is that foods (fruits, vegetables and grains) now being raised on millions of acres of land that no longer contain enough of certain minerals are starving us - no matter how much of them we eat. No man of today can eat enough fruits and vegetables to supply his system with the minerals he requires for perfect health because his stomach isn't big enough to hold them."
"The truth is that our foods vary enormously in value, and some of them aren't worth eating as food. Our physical well-being is more directly dependent upon the minerals we take into our systems than upon calories or vitamins or upon the precise proportions of starch, protein or carbohydrates we consume."
"This talk about minerals is novel and quite startling. In fact, a realization of the importance of minerals in food is so new that the textbooks on nutritional dietetics contain very little about it. Nevertheless, it is something that concerns all of us, and the further we delve into it the more startling it becomes."
"You'd think, wouldn't you, that a carrot is a carrot - that one is about as good as another as far as nourishment is concerned? But it isn't; one carrot may look and taste like another and yet be lacking in the particular mineral element which our system requires and which carrots are supposed to contain."
"We know that vitamins are complex chemical substances which are indispensable to nutrition, and that each of them is of importance for normal function of some special structure in the body. Disorder and disease result from any vitamin deficiency. It is not commonly realized, however, that vitamins control the body's appropriation of minerals, and in the absence of minerals they have no function to perform. Lacking vitamins, the system can make some use of minerals, but lacking minerals, vitamins are useless."
"Certainly our physical well-being is more directly dependent upon the minerals we take into our systems than upon calories or vitamins or upon the precise proportions of starch, protein of carbohydrates we consume."
"This discovery is one of the latest and most important contributions of science to the problem of human health."
