Minerals and micronutrients are the building blocks from which health cells are created. Our modern diet is largely deficient in these critical elements leaving all the metabolic processes in our body weaker and more vulnerable to infection. The list of these micronutrients is lengthy. Taking them in foods increases the chance of a healthy balance and enhanced absorbtion compared to taking a mineral supplement.
The best vegetables to eat to provide you with a healthy micronutrient balance include:
- seaweeds – nori, kombu, kelp, hijiki, arame
- freshwater algae – AFA (Aphanizomenon flos aquae), spirulina, chlorella. AFA is the algae of choice with the highest levels of minerals, essential fatty acids, Omega 3 oils, and chlorophyll.
- nuts, lentils and beans, whole grains and seeds
- leafy greens i.e. kale, Brussel sprouts
- fish and shellfish
As a supplement your best choice would be a Sea Vegetation tablets, a medley of several dried and wild crafted seaweeds from Wachter’s in which case take 2 – 4 tablets daily. Otherwise look for a complete mineral supplement containing some selenium.
