The body needs a steady stream of vitamins and minerals to function properly. These nutrients are created by plants or absorbed from the soil and put to use to drive photosynthesis and metabolism, as antioxidants, and a multitude of other functions. While vitamins are organic in nature, created by the plant to meet specific needs, minerals are considered inorganic as they come from the earth.
The minerals found in plants are not as inorganic as they may first seem though. They are usually paired with enzymes—protein structures designed to execute an important task—or they are used in combination with other organic compounds to be used as structure, energy storage, energy production, to promote healthy hydration, and serve many other purposes. Plants concentrate these minerals and, by combining them with organic compounds, make them more bioavailable to us. There is a good reason humans don’t just get our minerals by eating spoonfuls of dirt. Our body more readily identifies the ones found in plant food as something it can use.
This is why it is important to use vitamins and minerals that are natural and not synthetic. The body has evolved to recognize the natural forms, not the ones synthesized in laboratories or chipped out of stone. If natural vitamins and minerals are suspended in a liquid, they offer even more benefits.
Liquid minerals and vitamins are easily absorbed by the body. The digestive systems don’t have to work as hard to break down the nutrients and transform them into a usable form. The vitamins and minerals are already in the right form and pass easily through the intestinal walls to enter the bloodstream where they can reach every cell and tissue that is in need.
Liquid mineral and vitamin supplements are also very easy to use. They can be added to water, juice, almond milk, smoothies, and practically any beverage. This means the elderly, children, and those who have difficulty swallowing pills can get some of the nutrients that are severely lacking in our modern diets. Antioxidants are another plus of liquid vitamins. These are also readily absorbed, keep the nutrients intact, and offer cellular protection to those who use them. Look for a liquid supplement that includes fulvic acid.
Fulvic acid is an organic compound found in good soil. Plants use it to help absorb and transport nutrients. It serves the same purpose for us, carrying nutrients into cells. Fulvic acid acts as a nutrient transporter, powerful electrolyte, and detoxifier. This compound can also bind to heavy metals to remove them from the body. It serves a multitude of purposes and is an all-around health booster. It should be a part of your vitamin and mineral regimen if you want to get the most out of what you are taking.
