What is the #1 Missing Nutrient in Our Diets?Trace Minerals!
Why? Because over the years, our soils have become more and more depleted. If the soil is missing the nutrient, the plant will also be deficient. From 1965 to present, some trace minerals have been depleted by 6x. That means you would have to consume 6 apples to get the same nutrition as one apple in 1965. The farms due to mass farming have only been replacing a fraction of what is necessary to our health. The basic minerals farmers put back in the soil are nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus that it, three! We need all 70+ trace minerals. Your body is built from these minerals and they are the building-blocks of health.
What are Trace Minerals?
They are minerals that are needed in small amounts, usually fewer than 100 milligrams. Yet, they are still needed and required. The problem is we had not done enough research on trace minerals to demand farmers to put these back in. Minerals in general are needed to make vitamins.
Are all Trace Minerals the Same?
Absolutely not! There are 2 main kinds of minerals. Minerals that are rocks or salt and minerals that are plant-based. In nature, the rocks in our soils breakdown for the plants to absorb them from the earth to become a different type of mineral. Plant-based minerals have much less tighter bonds that rocks, so they are very easily absorbed by our bodies. In fact, plant-based minerals are 10,000 times smaller than rock minerals. The technical terms for these weaker bonds (in plant minerals) is called covalent bonds look it up in your spare time. The technical term for rock minerals are inorganic and the term for plant-based minerals are called organic. This is different than the other meaning for organic meaning without pesticides. Organic minerals mean plant based minerals.
It is very difficult to find high quality plant based minerals, go ahead and try it next to impossible. Most trace minerals sold today are from sea salt, which are only between 4-8% absorbed.
Why is it Hard to Find Plant Based Minerals?
Where are we going to get them? Our soils are depleted. There are still parts of the world that we can find good soils, but we don want to consume the soil directly, we want to consume the plants grown on the soil. In fact, in countries that still have trace minerals in their soils and the soils are still enriched, we will see people with real good teeth and dental structure like in Africa. We will not see the obesity.
Where Did you Find your Trace Minerals Dr. Berg?
I found a company that extracted their trace minerals from the prehistoric time period over 70 million years ago, when the soils were extremely rich. Then we liquefied them using cold-water extraction. The bottom line is you need to enhance your diet with trace minerals. If you don use my Trace Minerals, then find a company that uses a similar source. The best time to take trace minerals are when youe body is growing, so give them to your kids, your grandchildren too. But take them at any age, because the older you get the more important they become to your immune system.
How do Trace Minerals Affect Our Bodies?
- Oxygen levels and delivery
- The utilization of life sustaining amino acids
- A healthy reproductive system
- The proper burning of sugar within the body
- Body development and growth
- Blood pressure
- Heart rate
- Body temperature
- Antioxidant protection from free radicals
- Enzyme production
- Blood building
- Mental and nerve electrical flows
- Immune system protection
- Muscle coordination
- Fighting premature aging
Cravings Come from Trace Mineral Deficiencies
Why do you think pregnant mothers crave odd things? Their bodies are trying to get trace minerals. Why do you think people crave salts trace minerals, but of course, because of the lacking correct minerals. In fact, many people never really feel satisfied with the food they are eating. Without trace minerals in our meals, we tend to over-eat. In European countries, the foods are so much tastier due to the presence of trace minerals. Farmers take care of their soils and bring the food to the market, the food is just fresher, it contains these trace minerals. Why do you think people in Europe are thinner than in America?

These minerals have been extracted from a layer of the earth created from prehistoric plants in the Sedona time period (70 million years ago). For some reason they did not become oil like most other ancient plants. The soils back then were rich in trace minerals.
Is there any scientific research on trace mineral deficiencies? Definitely. In one study, it was found that the top diets are severely deficient in trace minerals because they reduce your calories, which automatically reduce your nutrients. It was found that due to our poor soils in the US, it would take 27,000 calories of food to get the required trace minerals you need.
In another study, it showed that trace minerals are required for your metabolism to work correctly and this has created problems for our growing kids.
How many drops do I need per day?
The label reads 1 tsp or 4 dropper-fulls (40 drops). However, this is for a very large person. I would recommend of this, which will last you 60 days (2 months).
How do trace minerals work in the body?
They are required nutrients in all body cells including our DNA. They are also needed in enzyme interactions, which are required in building proteins like in nails, hair, muscles, bone, connective tissues, organs, hormones, glands and metabolism. They are also important in the detoxification process. Trace minerals are the least understood by the medical community, yet they are the most important part of nutrition. They are especially important in a growing fetus and infant, yet baby food only contains a fraction of these trace minerals and in the form that is NOT plant based, only rock or metallic form.
How deficient are our soils in trace minerals?
From 100 years ago, many of these trace minerals are at least 70% missing. However back 50 years ago, it was not known that our bodies required trace minerals, so less attention was put in ensuring they are in our soil.
How should I take them?
Put them into a glass of water and drink away. You can also put them into other forms of liquids too. It does not matter when you take them take anytime of the day. However if you take them directly in your mouth without putting them into water, theye a bit concentrated, so dilute them with water.
What so special about Dr. Berg Trace Minerals?
They were created 70 million years ago in prehistoric times. They are plant based minerals, not salt or metallic rocks. This means the absorption is 100%. This is because they are 10,000 smaller. To put this into perspective, if you had a golf ball sitting next to the empire state building, you would see the difference between plant based minerals versus other trace minerals sold (rocks or sea salt based).
How will I feel?
Trace minerals work on the cellular level. They are not quick reacting drugs or stimulatory like some energy drink. They provide the missing building blocks to slowly repair and build your body tissues.
Because our bodies are so different, depending on what you have been missing, the results are so wide in its effects. Some people are very deficient in zinc, yet others cobalt. Within a few days, you may feel more energy, more satisfied with foods (fewer cravings). Interestingly, I have noticed more muscle strength like my connective tissue and muscles feel younger and stronger. I feel more calm and relaxed like my body is finally is getting what it been missing for 47 years better late than never.
Is there any side-effects?
No these are necessary nutrients that your body requires, not just something nice to take. They are not just another anti-oxidant or phytonutrient. They are basic require nutrients that were supposed to be in our foods.

What minerals are present?
Are they in an alcohol base?
No, they are in purified water.
Do they have to be taken with food or on an empty stomach?
