Food Sources for Minerals

Here’s a list of the most common mineral deficiencies and some best bet foods to eat for replenishing them:

Remember: Eating raw foods to replenish nutrients is one thing. We can easily overdose and imbalance our body with supplements, but not with foods. I have not included the signs of overdosing with over-supplementation, but these are listed under each specific mineral on my website.

Food sources are listed in order of the most often needed foods tested and recommended first and less common last. There are other food sources for these 먹튀검증  , but they rarely seem to come up as the best replacement during consultations, so have not been listed here.

Boron (B): Best Bet Food Sources– Apples, carrots, grapes, other raw fruits (except citrus), nuts, legumes, vegetables in general. Most often used for: Arthritis

Calcium (Ca): Best Bet Food Sources– Blackstrap molasses, salmon, green leafy vegetables, almonds, sesame seeds, cheese, yogurt and other dairy products, broccoli, nettles, burdock root, parsley, raspberry leaves, yarrow, marshmallow root and yellow dock. Most often used for: Osteoporosis, muscle cramps, heart palpitations, arthritis, brittle nails, pregnancy support, eczema, and high blood pressure.

Note: There are several types of calcium supplements on the market. You need just the right one for your body or excess can cause high blood pressure, arteriosclerosis, arthritis, and kidney stones. This is why natural food sources are best–because they don’t hurt your system like the supplements can.

Many people ask: “What is the best type of calcium for me to take?” I tell them, “Whatever you test strongest on. Here is a list of all the available types of calcium:

o Bone Meal Calcium

o Calcium Chloride

o Calcium Citrate

o Dicalcium Phosphate

o Calcium Gluconate

o Calcium Hydroxyapatite

o Calcium Lactate

o Oyster Shell Calcium

o Calcium Stearate

o Calcium w/ Boron

o Calcium w/ Vitamin D 3 (Lots of people are testing they need this form recently)

Carbon (C): Best Bet Food Sources– Activated Charcoal. Most used for: Detoxification

Chromium (Cr): Best Bet Food Sources– New Vision Ionic Minerals (see above), blackstrap molasses, beef and other meats/poultry/fish, brown rice, fresh fruits and vegetables, eggs, dulse (seaweed), and mushrooms. Most often used for: Anxiety and nervousness and other serious mental challenges, ADD, depression, Type II diabetes, hypoglycemia, heart diseases associated with coronary artery problems and infertility.

Copper (Cu): Best Bet Food Sources– Blackstrap molasses, parsley, New Vision Ionic Minerals, Standard Process Labs brand Chezyn, almonds, broccoli, carrots, mushrooms, oats and other whole grains and legumes, nuts, seafood, sunflower oil and whole wheat. Most often used for: Anemia, baldness, joint problems, improper cholesterol ratios, aneurysms, and retinal degeneration.

Germanium (Ge): Best Bet Food Sources– New Vision Ionic Minerals, mushrooms, seeds, vegetables (especially garlic and onions) and bran. Most often used for: Cancer, asthma, arthritis, high blood pressure and osteoporosis.

Iron (Fe): Best Bet Food Sources– Definitely blackstrap molasses (no more than two teaspoons/day maximum!), parsley, leafy green vegetables, sea vegetables such as dulse, kelp and nori wrappers, prunes, black cherries, meat and seafood, nuts, whole grains and legumes, burdock, yellow dock, nettles and raspberry leaves. Most often used for: Iron deficient anemia, decreased stamina and energy, weak immune system, digestive disorders (Crohn’s, Celiac, difficulty swallowing) and irritable nerves.

Note: I’ve noted that the prescription iron supplements are just too harsh on the system and that the body absorbs these natural sources much more easily. Two signs you may need natural iron supplements are ice chewing and a tan chin and cheek area when the rest of the face is a lighter complexion. You may also want to look into a parasite program to get at the core cause of the anemia.

Iodine (I): Best Bet Food Sources– Sea vegetables (kelp, dulse, nori wrappers), sesame seeds, raw spinach, zucchini, asparagus, Celtic Sea Salt, soy and soy products, garlic. Most often used for: Thyroid problems, fatigue, and weight issues. Interesting Note: Some foods block the update of iodine into the thyroid gland when eaten raw and in large amounts. Iodine blocking foods include–all of these are in raw form–cooking inactivates the thyroid blocking agents: Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, peaches, pears, cooked spinach and turnips. If you have an under active thyroid, limit your intake of these substances to 4 cups/week of any of these foods combined.

Magnesium (Mg): Best Bet Food Sources– Blackstrap molasses (no more than 2 teaspoons/day max!), dark green vegetables, potatoes (especially the skin), beans and other legumes, whole grains, almonds and other nuts, meat and fish, soy products, apricots, bananas, coconut (get the organic unsulfited kind,) dates, figs and avocados. Most often used for: Constipation, hyperexcitability, nervousness, asthma, chronic fatigue, glaucoma and retinal problems, high blood pressure, heart problems (congestive heart failure, valve problems, arrhythmias), insomnia, muscle cramping and multiple sclerosis.

Note: Potatoes grown on magnesium deficient soils (like Washington) are susceptible to the Potato Scab Virus. This virus is thought to be linked with the same virus that causes Multiple Sclerosis in humans. If you have neurological signs of any kind, don’t eat potato skins that are scabby.

Now, there are also quite a few choices for Magnesium on the shelves if you are purchasing a supplement. Which one is best for you? Whichever one tests the strongest.
