Who needs Minerals?

One of the promos that I received this month from Young Living was a supplement called Mineral Essence.  People have told me good things about this supplement, but I have also heard that it tastes HORRIBLE!  It made me VERY reluctant to try it.  Since I knew that I’d be getting it as a FREE promo product, I decided that I needed to learn why my body might benefit from it.

“Minerals are inorganic substances that are found in soil and rocks. They are essential nutrients that the body needs to survive and carry out daily functions and processes. You receive minerals by eating plants that absorb them from the earth and by eating meat from animals, which graze on plants. Minerals keep you healthy and have key roles in several body functions. You require these important nutrients from your daily diet.”  ~http://healthyeating.sfgate.com/main-functions-minerals-body-4171.html

The big ones I kept running across in all the articles and research I found were Calcium, Phosphorus, Magnesium, Iron, and Zinc.  These all happen to be in Mineral Essence!

“Mineral Essence is a very balanced, organic, ionic mineral complex with more than 60 different minerals.  Without minerals, vitamins cannot be properly assimilated or absorbed by the body.  Mineral Essence has a natural electrolyte balance.  Minerals are necessary for proper immune and metabolic functions, and essential oils enhance the bioavailability of minerals.” ~Essential Oils Desk Reference pg 266

Mineral Essence Contains:

  • Honey as an emulsifier and natural sweetener.
  • Royal Jelly a substance fed to queen bees that allows them to live 30 to 40 times longer than worker bees.  It is very rich in amino acids, minerals and vitamins B5 and B6; promotes the production of collagen; and stimulates the adrenal glands to increase energy.
  • Essential oils lemon, cinnamon bark, and peppermint
  • Trace Mineral Complex includes beryllium, bismuth, boron, bromine, calcium, carbon, cesium, chloride, chromium, copper, gallium, germanium, god, hafnium, indium, iodine, iron, lithium, lutetium, manganese, magnesium, molybdenum, nickel, niobium, nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, rubidium, scandium, selenium, silica, silver, sodium, strontium, sulfur, tantalum, thallium, tin, titanium, tungsten, vanadium, yttrium, zinc, and zirconium.

So…

after all that info, you probably wonder how it tastes because I said that I heard it was horrible.  Well, I was brave and tried it this morning in my NingXia Red.  It wasn’t bad at all!  Mostly just tasted the cinnamon with a little bit of a funny aftertaste.  With all the working out I’ve been doing with TRX training camps, I am thinking this will really support my electrolyte balance.  With all that exercise I’m doing, I need these minerals!
