Why do we need minerals?

All nutrients such as vitamins, proteins, carbohydrates and fats require minerals for proper cellular function.

Minerals are the spark plugs of life. They are required to activate thousands of enzyme reaction in the body.

We lose minerals through sweating (perspiration), exercise, suffering from diarrhea, and consumption of laxatives.

Mineral deficiency is lack of important minerals needed by the body. Vitamins are not enough for the humans to keep themselves fit, people also need minerals that will provide certain nutrients that will keep the body strong and healthy. Minerals are usually found in the daily foods consumed by the people, but due to environmental exploitation the minerals content of this food is not good enough to sustain the body. Purified water is also devoid of essential minerals. Hence, the people need something that will supplement these minerals.

Nigari is a mineral supplement, particularly rich in macro and trace minerals needed for optimum health and nutrition. It contains magnesium (anti-stress), sulfates, chlorides, and potassium. It is known that Nigari contains more than 40 trace elements like selenium (anti-cancer), boron, manganese, chromium and zinc.

Do you know that...
"Every sickness, every disease, and every ailment can be traced to a mineral deficiency"
Dr. Linus Pauling, a nobel prize awardee
"Most minerals (from food) are 8-12% absorbable while liquid minerals (from the sea) are 98% absorbable."
Joseph Marion, Author of Anti-Aging Manual

The fruits and vegetables nowadays are coming from soils which are over planted, and saturated with synthetic fertilizers and pesticides.  The end result is that the food we consume to give us nutrition are not anymore sufficient than they were meant 30 years ago.

Pregnancy Complications

Pregnant women are also vulnerable or atrisk to malnutrition. This is because of the increased nutrient needs during these physiological stages.

During pregnancy, there are special nutrient needs to meet the demand of the growing fetus, which depend entirely on the nourishment from the mother's food. There is a need for additional nutrients such as energy, protein, folate, iron, calcium and iodine and other micronutrients to ensure a healthy baby. It is a natural mechanism that the growing fetus will make use of the nutrient reserves of the mother to protect the pregnancy outcome, but to the risk of the mother's health.

The mother's nutrient reserves are usually depleted when her food intake is not enough. Thus, supplementation and dietary modification is needed to fill the nutrition gap, to ensure a successful pregnancy and prevent micronutrient deficiency complications.

When you're pregnant, magnesium helps build and repair your body tissue. A severe magnesium deficiency during pregnancy may lead to:

To find and being curious, I skip taking my maintenance tablet and using back Nigari. 110/70 then I skip my Nigari and back to the tablet, the reading is 130/90.
