Four mineral-packed herbs to easily boost your mineral intake.
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 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).
