For most of human history, we effortlessly consumed the things we needed for strength, health, and happiness. Like the fertile ground that we once walked upon, we were a natural extension of this earth. In the modern world, we unknowingly struggle to fulfill our nutritional needs in order to support and sustain a vibrant, disease-free life. We are now part of a world where we struggle with chronic dehydration, poor digestion, mineral deficiencies, and lack the physical endurance that our ancestors once had. The solution is to address the root cause with dietary, lifestyle, and behavioral choices, while nourishing and supporting our bodies and brains with proven anthropological ways that are backed by modern science... this includes the use of Ancestral Minerals.
Inhabiting mineral-rich environments such as the seashore, swamps, primeval forests, and grasslands, our ancestors consumed large amounts of essential minerals. Many of these environments have since been altered by the modern world, but when our ancestors lived in them, they were pristine. The water they drank and bathed in was pure and mineral rich... the soil was alive, teeming with bacteria, fungi, and minerals. Even the plants and animals they ate had a superior mineral profile compared to the plants and animals we farm today. In addition to the natural consistent exposure to minerals, our ancestors would gather salt from the sea or inland deposits and would seek out mineral rich foods, like bee pollen and kelp. Ancestral Minerals is rich in the essential and trace minerals from whole food sources that our ancestors enjoyed… Ancient Sea Salt, Atlantic Kelp, and Wildflower Bee Pollen.
ANCIENT SEA SALT
In ancient cultures, salt was considered the gift of the gods. Homer referred to salt as a “divine substance” and Plato described it as “especially dear to the gods.” The Celtic word for salt meant “holy” or “sacred.” Salt was regarded so highly that Roman soldiers were even paid partly in salt… In fact, the word “salary'' is derived from the Latin word for salt, salarium.
Our ancestors went to great lengths to obtain salt for good reason… Humans are one of few mammals that can cool off by sweating- it’s our super power.
That said, sweating doesn’t come without consequence. When we sweat, we lose large amounts of minerals such as sodium, chloride, potassium, magnesium, and calcium. In order to replenish these minerals, we need to consume them. On land, our ancestors sourced salt from lakes, ancient dried seabed deposits, and brine springs, while our shore-dwelling ancestors would have consumed plenty from the ocean.
Our ancient sea salt is harvested from a Jurassic Era, ancient seabed deep within the earth. It has been protected from being exposed to the pollutants of the modern world. This is real ancient sea salt… nothing has been extracted, nothing has been added.
NORTH ATLANTIC KELP
An abundantly growing wild food that is foraged from jagged cliffs of the world’s coastlines, kelp has been considered a sacred staple food throughout the ages. The Japanese regarded seaweed so highly that they were permitted to pay their taxes to the Emperor in kelp form.
Our North Atlantic Kelp is sustainably harvested from the clean, cold, and pristine waters of the North Atlantic ocean, richly mineralized by glacial melt rivers and geothermal vents in the ocean floor. With the ocean containing more than 47 minerals, kelp concentrates them all into a potent nutritional powerhouse that is easily assimilated by the body.
WILDFLOWER BEE POLLEN
Our ancestors battled angry bees to harvest the immune, brain, and endurance boosting foods within their hives. Gathering hive products from honey bees is an ancient practice that predates recorded history.
BENEFITS OF ANCESTRAL MINERALS
SUPPORTS REMINERALIZATION, NERVE FUNCTION, HYDRATION, ENDURANCE, AND DIGESTION.
Ancestral Minerals is a blend of Ancient Sea Salt, Atlantic Kelp, and Wildflower Bee Pollen, each a whole food source of essential minerals we need to thrive. Our ancestors have always relied on salt-preserved foods, fresh organ meats, beehive products, and marine life, including seaweed for both food and medicine. It is believed that access to these mineral-rich food sources, including iodine, unlocked the full potential of our cellular metabolism and aided in our rapid brain development . These essential nutrients all work synergistically with each other in harmony with nature, and in harmony with the wisdom of our ancestors.
