Minerals Powder Blend
Four mineral packed herbs to easily boost your mineral intake
Nettle leaves, Moringa leaves, Cacao beans (raw), Burdock root
INTERESTING INFORMATION ABOUT INGREDIENTS
Nettle leaf - according to many studies, nettle is one of the richest sources of minerals
in the plant foods. Many also think it is the most nutrient-dense plant in the world,
chock full of vitamins and proteins, as well as minerals, and proteins.
More protein than seaweed – and tastes better! Easily absorbable amino acids.
And to think it grows around the world and is quite plentiful all around our area.
If it just wasn't so painful to gather!
Moringa leaves - high content of vitamins, trace elements, essential amino acids, and, of course, minerals. Among them, more calcium than milk, more iron than beef, even more iron than spinach - take that, Popeye!
Antioxidant effect is higher than any other plant!
Cacao beans, raw - Raw cacao is particularly high in magnesium, as well as good amounts of
calcium and iron among other minerals. Also a great source of antioxidants. And a great substitute for chocolate (once you get over the need for the sugar...)
Burdock root -
A gentle root with many benefits. A good plant based source of antioxidants. And a great substitute for chocolate (once you get over the need for sugar...).
Do a google search on any or all of these plants and be blown away by their benefits to us!

LUANN'S THOUGHTS ABOUT "MINERALS POWDER BLEND"
(Not based on any fancy studies - just my observations from using it and background info on why I made it)
All four of these herbs are high in minerals that are easily assimilated by our bodies as they are in the form of organic compounds. I intentionally used these 4 as they utilize different "parts" of plants- leaves of nettle and moringa, fruit/bean of cacao, and root of burdock - feeling that this provides a special blend of different types of minerals.
