WHY? WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION
17.3M people or 30% of deaths worldwide per year are the result of cardiovascular diseases! The ability of your body to naturally absorb vitamins and minerals is based on the inter-relation between the various elements of foods which is extremely significant. The balance between these elements within the foods, how well they survive digestion and the extent that they can be absorbed into the cells is what matters. David Burke continually states, “It’s not what you eat, it’s what you absorb!”
At Celtic Nutrition we are inspired by the qualitative sciences of the balance of nature and we see the body as an intricate part of this. 99% of medicine focuses on the quantitative aspects of science and this fundamentally leaves out the human aspect of the treatment. We have been extremely careful through our years of research and trials to ensure the quality of the various ingredients have been sourced from the most natural sources and produced without the use of unnecessary chemicals.
WHAT HAPPENS IF WE ARE MINERAL DEFICIENT?
Minerals are an essential part of our natural diet and a lack of them may in part account for our increasing susceptibility to diseases such as heart disease (magnesium), cancer (selenium), diabetes (chromium) and mental illnesses (zinc). Zinc is perhaps the mot commonly deficient mineral and the most critical mineral for mental health. The average intake is half of the RDA of 15mg. Every one of us should take care of the minerals we need, for the good of our health.
THE FUNCTION OF MINERALS IN OUR BODIES
Minerals are needed for the proper formation of blood and bone, the maintenance of healthy nerve function, heartbeat regulation, reproduction and fetal development. They are essential to the process of growth, healing and energy release. It is not just the presence of minerals in the body that is important – they must be the correct ratio to each other. The level of each mineral has an effect, directly or indirectly, on every other mineral, so if one is out of balance your whole system is affected. Therefore it is imperative minerals are selected and combined in the correct ratios to ensure the maximum absorption.
