Understanding the Nutrients in BioMineral Tea
Is an essential mineral required for bone and tooth formation, nerve conduction and muscle contraction; it is needed by many enzymes involved in carbohydrate, protein, and nucleic acid metabolism. Magnesium is useful in treating anxiety, asthma, and cardiovascular disease; it is thought to prevent blood clots, raise HDL-cholesterol, lower LDL-cholesterol, reduce arrhythmias and blood pressure and to help with depression, fatigue, hyperactivity, and migraines. Magnesium deficiency causes irritability of the nervous system with tetany, vasodilation, convulsions, tremors, depression, and psychotic behavior. The central nervous system runs off of magnesium and is vital for heart health.
Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body. In combination with phosphorus, it forms calcium phosphate, the dense, hard material of the bones and teeth. It is an important cation in intracellular and extracellular fluid and is essential for the proper clotting of blood, the maintenance of a normal heartbeat neural transmission and helps prevent cell destruction. Ionized calcium is physiologically active. One of its most important physiological functions is control of the permeability of cell membranes. Parathyroid hormone, which causes transfer of exchangeable calcium from bone into the bloodstream, maintains calcium homeostasis by preventing either calcium deficit or excess. The human heart contains calcium chloride cells and potassium phosphate cells.
Iron is chiefly important to the human body because it is the main constituent of hemoglobin, cytochrome, and other components of respiratory enzyme systems. Human blood is iron and is essential for blood health and cellular replication. A constant although small intake of iron in food is needed to replace erythrocytes that are destroyed in human body processes. Most iron reaches the body in food, where it occurs naturally in the form of iron compounds. These are converted for use in the body by the action of the hydrochloric acid produced in the stomach. This acid separates the iron from the food and combines with it in a form that is readily assimilable by the body. Vitamin C enhances absorption of iron. Iron transports oxygen and nutrients throughout the body feeding all the organs at the cellular level.
Phosphorus is an essential element in the diet; in the form of phosphates it is a major component of the mineral phase of bone and is involved in almost all metabolic processes. It also plays an important role in cell metabolism. Phosphorus plays key roles in biochemical synthesis, storage and use of energy in cells through the formation of high-energy phosphate bonds; it is intimately linked to the regulation of calcium levels, carbohydrate, lipid and acid-base metabolism. Phosphorus is essential to bone and tooth formation; 85% of the body’s phosphorus and phosphates are stored in bone.
It is a trace element in the diet, a component of several enzymes, including DNA and RNA polymerases and carbonic anhydrase. Zinc is essential for testosterone production in males and also for testicular health. Zinc strengthens the immune system and helps fight disease. Those who may suffer from zinc deficiency include persons on a strictly vegetarian diet and those who are on a high-fiber diet. Poor absorption of zinc also can occur in individuals with chronic and severe bowel disease. A severe deficiency of zinc can retard growth in children, cause a low sperm count in adult males, and hinder wound healing. Signs of a deficiency include anorexia, sexual dysfunction and a diminished sense of taste.
As a nutritional element, iodine is vital to the production of thyroxin by the thyroid gland. Essential in the synthesis of thyroid hormones and whose deficiency is implicated in preventable mental retardation and brain maldevelopment. Very important to keep the thyroid healthy for hormone production. The cells of the thyroid are made of iodine cells.
Essential for the pancreas so it can produce glucagon and insulin the blood sugar balancing hormones. Chromium works with manganese, magnesium, and selenium to keep the pancreas healthy and to function properly.
Potent mineral antioxidant required in trace amounts by certain enzymes (e.g., glutathione peroxidase); it interacts with vitamins A, C, and E, serving as an antioxidant. Selenium is believed to be anti-carcinogenic, to retard aging, and has been used for arthritis, cataracts, connective tissue disease, dandruff and age-related vision loss. Works with chromium to nourish the pancreas. Selenium is excellent for women who have a genetic predisposition to breast cancer.
Used by the liver and lungs for proper function. Sulfur is an important part of several amino acids (the building blocks of protein), especially methionine and cysteine. It helps the body resist bacteria, cleanses the blood, and protects the protoplasm of cells. A deficiency in sulfur causes anorexia, weight loss, poor digestion. Sulfur has been used in the treatment of gout, rheumatism, and bronchitis and as a mild laxative. Sulfur is also for skin and hair health.
Essential trace mineral linked to critical metabolic reactions, including in iron absorption and metabolism, and the formation of red blood cells and nerves. Necessary for bone formation and the formation of blood because it occurs in several oxidative enzymes including one involved in the transformation of iron into hemoglobin. The cerebral cortex of the brain is made of copper cells which is essential for hair pigmentation and skin health.
Essential electrolyte found in all body fluids, and is critical for maintaining proper pH balance, regulating fluids, electrolyte balance, and digesting food. The small and large intestine need chloride to maintain healthy bowel movements and digestion. Essential to digestion and the production of hydrochloric acid. Chloride is the negative ionic charge within a cell membrane and works with the positive charge of potassium for cellular health.
The active biological form of molybdenum is known as the molybdenum cofactor. It is found in several tissues of the human body and is required for the activity of enzymes that are involved in eliminating toxic substances, including the catabolism of purines, which produces uric acid, formed primarily in the liver and excreted by the kidneys into the urine. In addition to being a cofactor of enzymes involved in purine and pyrimidine detoxification.
Sodium is one of the most important elements in the body. Sodium ions are involved in acid-base balance, water balance, transmission of nerve impulses, and contraction of muscles. Sodium is a critical component of more than 8 L of secretions produced by the body every day. These secretions include saliva, gastric and intestinal secretions, bile, and pancreatic fluid. Sodium is the main electrolyte in interstitial fluid, and its interaction with potassium as the primary intracellular electrolyte is critical to survival.
In combination with other minerals in the body, potassium forms alkaline salts that are important in body processes and play an essential role in the maintenance of the acid-base and water balance in the body. All body cells, especially muscle tissue, require a high content of potassium. A proper balance between sodium, calcium, and potassium in the blood plasma is necessary for proper cardiac function. The hearts cells contain potassium as well as parts of the brain.
Is a trace mineral that is important in many enzyme systems in your body. Most of the manganese in your body is found in your glands which activates many enzymes in cell metabolism. Helps your body utilize some vitamins, such as thiamine, choline, and vitamin C. Helps with protein and amino acid digestion and utilization. Manganese is used therapeutically to correct a deficiency and balance zinc and copper. The mineral may help blood sugar levels in diabetes and may improve neurological disorders. Its salts occur in the body tissue in tiny amounts and serve as activators of liver arginase and other enzymes. Has been used to treat painful menstruation and osteoporosis and as a dietary adjunct to alleviate deficiencies associated with seizure disorders and diabetes. The pancreas uses manganese, magnesium, and chromium to produce insulin and glucagon.
Critical to the formation of red blood cells, maintenance of neural tissue, and in certain metabolic reactions. Cobalt is the central ion in vitamin B12. Vitamin B12 cannot function properly without cobalt.
A trace mineral needed for proper absorption and utilization of calcium to maintain bone density, and may help prevent postmenopausal osteoporosis;
daily supplements of boron may help retain dietary calcium, magnesium and phosphorus, and increase production of o-estrogen and testosterone. It is also thought to safely promote muscle growth by body-builders. Boron is believed by alternative health workers to be useful in pregnancy and menopause as it increases o-estrogens.
Fluoride– When people hear fluoride they immediately think it is bad but let me shed some light on this misconception. There is two different types of fluoride, there is the herbal form which is carbon based and is beneficial to your health, and there is the inorganic version which is derived from metal or made in a laboratory by synthesis which is a poison. The herbal fluoride in Bio Mineral tea is very good for you. Fluoride is best known for its role in preventing tooth decay. While fluoride does help overall bone strength, the effects of fluoride are most visible when it comes to teeth. The formation of teeth involves a combination of phosphorous, and calcium. When these two combine they form a structure called hydroxyapatites. When Fluoride is consumed, it immediately intervenes with the crystal and creates an even stronger structure which gives teeth a greater resistance to decay, plaque, and weakening.
Hair, Skin, and Nail Health – Silica has long been a go-to supplement for hair, skin, and nails. Silica is naturally found in nails, making them strong. When our dietary silica goes down, our nails and hair grow slower and become more brittle. Silica also plays a role in keeping skin elastic and collagen production active.
Silica is vital to healthy joints, ligaments, and cartilage. It lends strength and elasticity to collagen, so joints are more flexible, heal quicker, and can snap back from the daily wear and tear our bodies undergo with all our bending, twisting, and stretching. Many people use silica to help ease joint pain and arthritis symptoms. Bone Health – many studies show that the presence of silica helps the body use calcium. As we get older, our silica levels decline, and our bones weaken. Mice fed low silicon diets also had lower bone density. There is plenty of evidence that silica is vital to bone health and preventing fractures as we get older. Teeth and gums get a boost from silica too. Heart Health – Silica is more prevalent in healthy hearts than diseased hearts. Since silica strengthens muscle tissue, this shouldn’t be too surprising. It also aids the body in calcification of bones and thus prevents the calcification of other tissues. There is some evidence that silica may help offset the calcification of arterial plaque. It may also play a role in the electrochemical transmissions of the nervous system.
Understanding the Vitamins in BioMineral Tea
Vitamin A is essential in a healthy diet. This crucial fat-soluble vitamin was the first vitamin to be officially named, so it became vitamin A. Your body needs a steady supply of A to maintain healthy skin, good eyesight, and growth in kids. Vitamin A has become a credible antioxidant for cancer prevention; and as an active immune system enhancer, it helps prevent other diseases as well. Used to treat acute infections. Help treat skin problems — especially acne. Improves poor night vision. Protects the body from the cell-disturbing effects that many toxic chemicals have. Research shows that beta-carotene has potent antioxidant activity and can help protect you from developing some kinds of cancers — especially skin cancer and lung cancer.
Vitamin B1, also called thiamine or thiamin, is one of 8 B vitamins. All B vitamins help the body convert food (carbohydrates) into fuel (glucose), which the body uses to produce energy. These B vitamins, often referred to as B-complex vitamins, also help the body metabolize fats and protein. B-complex vitamins are needed for a healthy liver, skin, hair, and eyes. They also help the nervous system function properly and are required for proper brain function. All B vitamins are water-soluble, meaning that the body does not store them. Like other B-complex vitamins, thiamine is sometimes called an “anti-stress” vitamin because it may strengthen the immune system and improve the body’s ability to withstand stressful conditions. It is named B1 because it was the first B vitamin discovered. Thiamine is found in both plants and animals and plays a crucial role in certain metabolic reactions. Your body needs it to form adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which every cell of the body uses for energy. It is rare to be deficient in thiamine, although alcoholics, people with Crohn disease, anorexia, and those undergoing kidney dialysis may be deficient. Symptoms of thiamine deficiency are Headache Nausea Fatigue Irritability Depression Abdominal discomfort. Individuals with thiamine deficiency also have trouble digesting carbohydrates; this allows a substance called pyruvic acid to build up in the bloodstream, causing a loss of mental alertness, difficulty breathing, and heart damage, a disease known as beriberi.
In addition to producing energy for the body, riboflavin works as an antioxidant, fighting damaging particles in the body known as free radicals. Free radicals can damage cells and DNA and may contribute to the aging process, as well as the development of some health conditions, such as heart disease and cancer. Antioxidants, such as riboflavin, can fight free radicals and may reduce or help prevent some of the damage they cause. Riboflavin is also needed to help the body change vitamin B6 and folate into forms it can use. It is also essential for growth and red blood cell production. Most healthy people who eat a well-balanced diet get enough riboflavin. However, older adults and alcoholics may be at risk for riboflavin deficiency because of poor diet. Symptoms of riboflavin deficiency include: Fatigue, slowed growth, digestive problems, cracks and sores around the corners of the mouth, swollen magenta-colored tongue eye fatigue, swelling and soreness of the throat and sensitivity to light.
Niacin helps the body make various sex and stress-related hormones in the adrenal glands and other parts of the body. Niacin helps improve circulation, and it has been shown to suppress inflammation. All the B vitamins are water-soluble, meaning that the body does not store them. You can meet all of your body’s needs for B3 through diet. It is rare for anyone in the developed world to have a B3 deficiency. In the U.S., alcoholism is the primary cause of vitamin B3 deficiency. Symptoms of mild B3 deficiency include: Indigestion, fatigue, canker sores, vomiting, poor circulation, depression, severe deficiency can cause a condition known as pellagra. Pellagra is characterized by cracked, scaly skin, dementia, and diarrhea. It is treated with a nutritionally balanced diet and niacin supplements. Niacin deficiency also causes burning in the mouth and a swollen, bright red tongue.
B5 (Pantothenic Acid)
In addition to playing a role in the breakdown of fats and carbohydrates for energy, vitamin B5 is critical to the manufacturing of red blood cells, as well as sex and stress-related hormones produced in the adrenal glands, small glands that sit atop the kidneys. Vitamin B5 is also essential in maintaining a healthy digestive tract, and it helps the body use other vitamins, particularly B2 (also called riboflavin). It is sometimes called the “anti-stress” vitamin because it helps people adapt to change and helps you keep a balanced mood. Your body needs pantothenic acid to synthesize cholesterol. Vitamin B5 deficiency is rare but may include symptoms such as fatigue, insomnia, depression, irritability, vomiting, stomach pains, burning feet, and upper respiratory infections.
Vitamin B6 helps the body make several neurotransmitters, chemicals that carry signals from one nerve cell to another. It is needed for healthy brain development and function and helps the body make the hormones serotonin and norepinephrine, which influence mood, and melatonin, which helps regulate the body clock. Along with vitamins B12 and B9, B6 helps control levels of homocysteine in the blood. Homocysteine is an amino acid that may be associated with heart disease. Your body needs B6 to absorb vitamin B12 and to make red blood cells and cells of the immune system. It is rare to have a significant deficiency of B6, although studies indicate many people may be mildly deficient, especially children and the elderly. Certain medications can also cause low levels of B6 in the body. Symptoms of severe deficiency include muscle weakness, nervousness, irritability, depression, difficulty concentrating and short-term memory loss.
B9 (folic acid)
Our bodies need folate to make DNA and other genetic material. Folate is also required for the body’s cells to divide. Getting too little folate can result in megaloblastic anemia, which causes weakness, fatigue, trouble concentrating, irritability, headache, heart palpitations, and shortness of breath. Folate deficiency can also cause open sores on the tongue and inside the mouth as well as changes in the color of the skin, hair, or fingernails. Women who don’t get enough folate are at risk of having babies with neural tube defects, such as spina bifida. Folate deficiency can also increase the likelihood of having a premature or low-birth-weight baby.
Vitamin B12 is a nutrient that helps keep the body’s nerve and blood cells stay healthy and helps make DNA, the genetic material in all cells. Vitamin B12 also helps prevent a type of anemia called megaloblastic anemia that makes people tired and weak. Two steps are required for the body to absorb vitamin B12 from food. First, hydrochloric acid in the stomach separates vitamin B12 from the protein to which vitamin B12 is attached to food. After this, vitamin B12 combines with a protein made by the stomach called intrinsic factor and is absorbed by the body. Some people have pernicious anemia, a condition where they cannot make intrinsic factor. As a result, they have trouble absorbing vitamin B12 from all foods and dietary supplements. B12 works hand in hand with the mineral Cobalt. Cyano (Cobalamin)=Cobalt. Cobalt is the central ion in organic vitamin B12.
The biggest kept secret in nutrition perhaps, vitamin B17 is found naturally occurring in Elderberry and Alfalfa in great abundance which are both in Bio-Mineral tea. Vitamin B17 is anti-carcinogenic and is one of the nature’s most powerful anti-oxidants getting rid of present free radical damage quickly and efficiently. B17 is vital for proper cellular respiration and replication. Many claim B17 to be toxic, but medical science has failed to recognize the difference between an organic substance that compliments the human organic chemistry and an inorganic material which only treats symptoms and causes side effects. If B17 were toxic, that would mean eating raspberries are bad for your health because they too contain B17. If B17 is created in a laboratory versus in nature it just maybe toxic I’m not sure, but I do know it is not a poison in its organic carbon-based form. Studies have shown that B-17 helps to increase the body’s ability to fight cancer. B-17 does this through the creation of (organic) hydrogen cyanide, which is released into the body’s tissues. This compound then attacks and subsequently may help destroy cancer cells. It is not used alone, however, but rather in conjunction with other critical processes that involve enzymes, a diet that favors anti-carcinogenic foods and exercise. Clinical tests have shown that B-17 reacts well with vitamins A, C, E, B-15, pancreatic enzymes and other nutrients to break down malignant cells.
C (Ascorbic Acid)
Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble nutrient found in some foods. In the body, it acts as an antioxidant, helping to protect cells from the damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are compounds formed when our bodies convert the food we eat into energy. People are also exposed to free radicals in the environment from cigarette smoke, air pollution, and ultraviolet light from the sun. The body also needs vitamin C to make collagen, a protein required to help wounds heal. Also, vitamin C improves the absorption of iron from plant-based foods and helps the immune system work properly to protect the body from disease.
Vitamin D is a nutrient found in some foods that are needed for health and to maintain healthy bones. It does so by helping the body absorb calcium (one of the bone’s main building blocks) from food and supplements. People who get too little vitamin D may develop soft, thin, and brittle bones, a condition known as rickets in children and osteomalacia in adults. Vitamin D is essential to the body in many other ways as well. Muscles need it to move, for example, nerves need it to carry messages between the brain and every body part, and the immune system needs vitamin D to fight off invading bacteria and viruses. Together with calcium, vitamin D also helps protect older adults from osteoporosis.
Vitamin E is a fat-soluble nutrient found in many foods. In the body, it acts as an antioxidant, helping to protect cells from the damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are compounds formed when our bodies convert the food we eat into energy. People are also exposed to free radicals in the environment from cigarette smoke, air pollution, and ultraviolet light from the sun. The body also needs vitamin E to boost its immune system so that it can fight off invading bacteria and viruses. It helps to widen blood vessels and keep blood from clotting within them. Also, cells use vitamin E to interact with each other and to carry out many essential functions.
Vitamin K is a fat-soluble vitamin that is most well known for the important role it plays in blood clotting. However, vitamin K is also essential to building strong bones, preventing heart disease, and crucial part of other bodily processes. In fact, vitamin K is sometimes referred to as “the forgotten vitamin” because its primary benefits are often overlooked. Recent evidence suggests vitamin K is a necessary adjunct to vitamin D, and if you are deficient in one, neither works optimally in your body. As you may already know, vitamin D is a key player in your overall health. According to one of the world’s top vitamin K researchers, Dr. Cees Vermeer, just like with vitamin D, nearly everyone is deficient in vitamin K. Most of you get enough K from your diet to maintain adequate blood clotting, but NOT enough to protect you from a variety of other health problems. The following diseases may result from a vitamin K deficiency, arterial calcification, cardiovascular disease, varicose veins, brain health problems, including dementia (the specifics of which are under study) osteoporosis, tooth decay, prostate cancer, lung cancer, liver cancer, leukemia and infectious diseases such as pneumonia.
