Whether your desire is to lose weight, have more energy, escape the run of the mill ways to take care of your health, experience better moods, or just have a deeper understanding of your overall health, Minerals: The Forgotten Nutrient is your guide. Read something eye-opening, finally. The latest tools and fads don’t compare to having the right foundation for proper health with minerals.
Minerals are, in many ways, the unheralded and often forgotten heroes of keeping our bodies functioning at their best. While the
nutrients, carbohydrates, proteins and fat may be better well known, minerals are equally vital for helping us get and stay healthy.
They play a key role in combatting disease, helping your body heal, managing ongoing chronic health problems such as high
blood pressure, minimizing the impact of such common maladies as headaches and PMS, helping children grow up strong,
enhancing mental performance at all ages, and fatigue. They truly are your secret weapon for getting and staying your healthiest.
In this easy-to-read and easy-to-use guide, pH Lab’s team of recognized medical doctors and
specialists tell you about the role minerals play with common health issues along with detailed
information about individual minerals. You’ll also learn more about the relationship between minerals
and prescription medicines, why you need more than routine blood tests to see what minerals your body may
need, and where you can get these tests.
Phosphoric acid is used to enhance the flavor of many carbonated drinks. It provides that tanginess that we enjoy. Although phosphorus is an
integral part of bones, high phosphorous intake, such as from the acidic forms found in sodas, can cause essential healthy bone minerals such
as calcium and magnesium to get pushed away while phosphates take their place leading to brittle bones (osteoporosis).
Chronic excessive alcohol users frequently have multiple nutritional and mineral deficits. Alcohol
has strong diuretic effects which may contribute to loss of minerals in the urine. There are other
mechanisms by which alcohol depletes minerals and affects bone formation. These are complex
and technical issues, which are beyond the scope of this book and will not be addressed.
In some older studies, increased coffee intake was mentioned as a minor contributor to osteoporosis; recent studies did not find
any differences. It is also noteworthy that different types of coffee contain different amounts of minerals. Overall
regular use of one cup of coffee per day does not seem to have any adverse effects on minerals and bone health, while high use may.
The minerals in drinking water from a municipal source or from bottled water differ. Clinical studies suggest that drinking
water that is rich in bicarbonate and potassium lowered calcium excretion in the urine and bone resorption. That means bone
is being better preserved. Mineral waters rich in potassium, magnesium, medium calcium and low sodium content are useful for
overall health not just for bone and cardiovascular benefits. Fluids lacking in minerals may be counterproductive to health.
Stress increases cortisol levels and also interferes with other mineral-reabsorbing hormones. This may cause increased urinary frequency,
decreased mineral absorption and loss of essential minerals.
Many individuals may be lacking in minerals because they do not eat foods that are rich in minerals. It is generally difficult to see the results of
such mineral deficits because the clinical signs maybe vague and nonspecific. For example, some of the short term clinical signs of mineral
deficiencies may be rather nonspecific, such as fatigue, appetite changes, constipation, headaches, sleep disturbances, muscle tightness
and cramps, changes in menstruation and premenstrual syndromes, hair loss, skin conditions.

What People Are Saying
“Enjoyed the book very much and learned a ton. I think you have pointed the importance of minerals, but also pointed out that too much of these minerals can have significant adverse effects. I think the book will be particularly popular with people who have an interest in living a healthy lifestyle.”
Robert Kerlan, medical doctor
“This book does a great job of explaining the intricate relationships between the minerals in the body and the importance of maintaining optimal ratios in a way that is accessible to Joe Public, but also addresses professionals. I just wish texts like this were required reading for medical, nutritional or any and all health-care related students and providers.”
