Mineral drops are derived from dehydrated sea water. They are rich in magnesium, potassium, sodium, and trace amounts of 70+ other minerals. Trace minerals are needed for vital functions in the body such as synthesis of neurotransmitters and healthy hormones. They help regulate sleep, mood, bowel function; aid in healthy bone mineral density, and may help with electrical stability in the cells.
Mineral drops are an excellent source of chloride too. Chloride is one of the main electrolytes. Chloride combines with hydrogen in the stomach to make hydrochloric acid, which is a powerful digestive enzyme responsible for the breakdown of proteins and absorption of minerals.
You can purchase Trace mineral drops or you can make your own. However, there is a difference between them. Homemade mineral drops (or sole water) contain more sodium and less magnesium. Trace mineral drops have less sodium and more magnesium. In one sentence, sole water is mostly sodium, concentrated mineral drops are mostly magnesium. They both have trace minerals.
How to take Trace Mineral Drops
If you just started taking mineral drops, start with 1 drop in a cup of filtered water. Slowly increase the number of mineral drops to 1/2-1 teaspoon, or more as desired. Remember to start slowly.
Add 1/2-1 teaspoon of mineral drops to 1 quart of filtered water and sip throughout the day.
You can add mineral drops to hot or cold soups, teas, or other beverages too. Mineral drops are not temperature sensitive.
