So incredibly important for the cells electrolyte balance, Potassium is a requirement for ATP and proper nerve firing. Our diets today are often laden with excess sodium and calcium, this disturbs an inherent electrolyte balance that humans have maintained for millions of years. It raises energy levels and lowers blood pressure.
Many people are unaware that zinc is densely found in the brain, specifically the hippocampus, allowing for new neuronal growth and DNA replication. It is also a co-factor for estrogen and testosterone production. Over 2 billion people in the world are deficient.
Vital for so many functions in the body, Magnesium provides pure energy and life force to your body. In the forms of ATP production to bone production, it's a cofactor in over 300 biological reactions. It's one of the top nutrient deficiencies in the U.S. and we still wonder why we can't sleep.
In small amounts, Chaga contains these potent alkaline minerals. In Native North American populations, cancer rateswere low and this was thought to be because of a high intake of alkaline (inducing apoptosis) instead of promoting growth (acidic environment). There is almost double the amount of Cesium in Chaga than in Green tea.
This is the 12th most abundant mineral on Earth. Our bodies need it for manufacturing superoxide dismutase (SOD) and for prevention of osteoporosis. Few sources of food provide such high amounts of manganese as Chaga and Maple Syrup.
