Mineral and Electrolyte Support

Macro-elements are needed in larger amounts and each one makes up at least 0.15% of the body. There are about a dozen of these. 96% of your body is made up of just four elements – oxygencarbonhydrogen and nitrogen. You get those from the food you eat, the liquids you drink (especially water, which makes up 60-70% of your body) and the air you breathe. Calcium  and phosphorus push that to 99%. You may need to supplement these to maintain optimum health and longevity. Another set of 5 elements make up most of the last 1% - potassiumsulfursodiumchlorine and magnesium. These too may need to be supplemented to reach optimum amounts on a continuing basis. 

Trace elements (generally available as “trace minerals”) are those elements your body only needs in minute quantities. Any amount of 0.01% of your body weight or less is considered a trace element. They may be small in quantity, but they are huge in supporting essential bodily functions, achieving and maintaining glowing health, and achieving great longevity. Many are critical to your life. Much of the magic of your life is due to trace elements in your blood, fluids and literally every cell of your body. In fact, rare is the function that does not involve trace elements along with the major elements. All told, there are somewhere between 60 and 70+ trace elements found in the healthy human body. These elements have been produced in round-upon-round of cosmic recycling over billions of years. The healthy human body utilizes at least 40 different trace minerals just to survive, and perhaps more than 70 (the science is still unclear). Here are a few examples:

Iron (just 0.006% of your body weight)is used in your body to produce hemoglobin and myoglobin, the proteins that carry oxygen in your body. Iron is a key element in the metabolism of almost all living organisms. It is also found in hemoglobin, which is the oxygen carrier in red blood cells. Half of women don't get enough iron in their diet. Zinc (0.0032%) is an essential trace element. You have proteins that contain structures called "zinc fingers" that help to regulate genes. Zinc plays a critical role in our antioxidant system. Zinc is also essential for full growth and development. Zinc also plays a role in reproduction. Iodine is required, albeit in very small amounts, in the production of thyroid hormones that regulate nearly every cell in the body. Manganese (a mere 0.000017%) enhances the absorption of calcium, regulates your blood sugar and plays a key role in the production of your bones and connective tissues. Manganese is essential for the enzymes that protect mitochondria — the place where your energy is manifested inside cells — from oxidants. Chromium (0.0000024%) is very important in regulating your blood sugar. It plays a role in the production of insulin. Chromium helps regulate sugar levels by interacting with insulin. Fluoride, though considered toxic if consumed, may keep your teeth strong and healthy. Bromine is an example of an element that the human body can live apparently without, but when it is available to our cells, the cells opportunistically use it to increase functionality of the eosinophils in our blood. Bromine is necessary for collagen-IV synthesis in humans. Your body needs Copper (0.0001%) as an essential electron donor in various biological reactions – iron won't work properly in the body without copper. Selenium (0.000019%) is essential for certain enzymes, including several anti-oxidants. Molybdenum (0.000013%) is important for transforming sulfur into a usable form in your body. The list goes on and on with BoronGermaniumCadmiumSiliconNickelTinVanadium, etc.





Full body mineral support

We can obtain many of the elements we need to live from our diet. To thrive we generally need to do some supplementing. Sea water contains all the trace elements. Therefore the sea is a go-to source for trace element supplementation. Pearl powder, sea salts from various regions and sea vegetables contain all the trace elements. Some superfoods and tonic herbs are also perfect suppliers of specific trace elements. Goji (which only grows well in mineral-rich alkaline soil), Mountain Ant, He Shou Wu, Ginseng, American Ginseng, Tibetan Rhodiola, and the superfoods Hydrilla, Ashitaba, Spirulina, for example, are premium sources of trace elements. Ant and He Shou Wu are world class sources of highly utilizable dietary zinc. Dragon Herbs adds trace minerals collected from the Great Salt Lake in Utah, which contains 73 trace elements (minimal sodium), to all of its elixir pouches and to Healer’s Tea eeTee and Tibetan Magic eeTee. Pearl Powder is an excellent source of calcium, magnesium and zinc, as well as dozens of trace minerals. So all products with Pearl contribute greatly to your mineral requirements.

Dragon Herbs Di Tao (Authentic Source) Sea Salts

You can obtain minerals from plants and seafood, but you may be shortchanging yourself if you don’t ever add any complex minerals to your diet. Minerals, even some that you’ve never heard of, play critical roles in various tissues, systems and functions of the body. Without them, some functions may cease or become weak, causing a chain reaction of failed functions. Many, many people these days are afraid of “salt.” The fear is justified if we are talking about common table salt – the perverse food additive composed of sodium chloridewith added anti-caking chemicals that we grew up with. But we need minerals and SEA SALT can fill that need perfectly, if we use discretion and wisdom. All real sea salt contains at least 50 macro- and trace minerals, more in most cases. 


Dragon Herbs offers a range of healthful, important high-mineral sea salts from pristine and extraordinary sources around the world – we call them Di Tao Sea Salts™. Di Tao is the term used in Chinese philosophy for “obtained from its original, authentic source.” Some are collected from the pristine oceans, and some are collected in mountains that were primordial sea beds millions of years ago. All are SEA salt.

Di Tao Sea Salts with Superfood

Sea Salt blended with certain superfoods can enrich your life and health.
