HUmineral’s Monthly Newsletter
Aging – the term “aging” refers to the biological process of growing older in a deleterious sense. Here at HUmineral, we don’t believe in “anti” aging. We believe in “HEALTHY” aging at every stage. We want to age so we can grow, have new experiences, see our children, family and friends, experience their missions.
Aging results from the oxidation of the cells. Oxidation is the loss of electrons during a reaction by a molecule, atom or ion. As cells die and are replaced by new ones, there are only so many times a cell can be replaced before the telomeres that are needed for cellular reproduction are too short to continue that cycle. Therefore, the longer one can have a cell remain viable without needing to be replaced, theoretically, the longer a person will live.
Electron: a stable particle with a charge of negative electricity, found in all atoms and acting as the primary carrier of electricity in solids.
Atom: a fundamental piece of matter… An atom itself is made up of three tiny kinds of particles called subatomic particles: protons, neutrons, and electrons.
Oxidation occurs when the oxidation state of a molecule, atom or ion is increased. The opposite process is called reduction, which occurs when there is a gain of electrons or the oxidation state of an atom, molecule, or ion decreases.
In humans, aging represents the accumulation of changes in the human body over time, encompassing physical, psychological, and social changes. As we age, there are positives and some less positives. We can reduce the latter by choosing HEALTHY as a daily lifestyle. For instance, as we age, our reaction time may slow, while knowledge of world events may increase. Wisdom as we age is a good thing. We can do daily activity to aid our agility and reaction, such as yoga, swimming, walking, reading. Aging is among the greatest known risk factors for most human diseases: of the roughly 150,000 people who die each day across the globe, about two thirds die from age-related causes.
The causes of aging are uncertain; current theories are assigned to the damage concept, whereby the accumulation of damage (such as DNA oxidation) may cause biological systems to fail, or to the programmed aging concept, whereby internal processes (such as DNA methylation) may cause aging.
To produce energy, the body oxidizes (burns) the food we eat. Calories are a measure of how much energy is contained in the food we consume. So, oxidation is necessary to produce energy but it must be controlled. Just as a camp fire needs to be kept within the fire pit of stones so you don’t set the camp on fire, the oxidation within your body needs to be kept in the mitochondria so as not to damage the rest of the cell.
The free radicals that are generated as part of cellular oxidation can damage cell membranes, cellular proteins, lipids and DNA. Anti-oxidants in the diet or ones created by the body are designed to capture and quench the free radicals before they can damage the body. In an absence of anti-oxidants, excessive free radicals can cause certain diseases; heart disease, liver disease and some cancers. Oxidation can be accelerated by toxicity; stress, cigarette smoking, alcohol, sunlight, pollution and multiple other factors.
Antioxidants fight free radicals. Humic Acid MINERAL is a powerful antioxidant, loaded with polyphenols. It is a nutrient antioxidant that nourishes body/cell, that encompasses some 80 major and trace minerals, including copper, zinc and selenium. Other dietary food compounds, such as the phytochemicals in plants and zoo-chemicals from animal products, are believed to have great antioxidant effect. These are called the non-nutrient antioxidants and include phytochemicals, such as lycopenes in tomatoes, and anthocyanins found in cranberries.

Toxins are everywhere – household cleaners, hair/skin products, the clothing we wear to the bed sheets we use. All can have a negative toxic impact on our health. Have you ever felt lethargic or in a state of constant bloat no matter how much you exercise or how little you consume or diet trend toward “healthy foods” for a period? It may be time for change. An everyday lifestyle change toward NUTRITION, giving your body a fresh start and with an all-natural detox. From getting sick more often to never losing that last 5 lbs., toxins build up over time and cause your body to waste valuable energy on basic everyday functions. Your skin, as you know, is your largest organ and does, by all means, removes toxins from the body. However, it does not remove all of them. Toxins lodged in the fat or the intestinal tract, organs, etc. don’t generally find their way out of the body through the skin. So, additional cleansing techniques are required to get rid of those. You may also aid cleansing by substituting a few of your regular snacks to more “cleansing foods,” your body will function more effectively and thank you in the long run.
Detox elixirs, pills and powders from 2, 7 and 30 day miracles have become all the rage, but, do they work? Usually unsustainable in the long run. Remember HEALTHY IS A LIFESTYLE. They may help you lose weight fast, in the short, but your body will ultimately rebound to memory. The key to an everyday healthy lifestyle success is working healthier choices into your daily routine until they become YOU. Natural detox foods contain molecules that cling to toxins carrying them out of your body. While all cleansing foods have an overall purifying effect, specific foods are extra helpful to specific areas of the body. Here are a couple DETOX foods you can add to your plate or smoothie/tonic on your way to your healthy daily lifestyle.
BEETS: These red tasties, contain a group of antioxidants called betalains, which are excellent for detoxifying, and more specifically liver detox. Beets also contain a high concentrate of betaine, which help to reduce liver inflammation. The antioxidants found in beets support the liver’s second phase cleansing, when toxins are chemically transformed into a water-soluble form excreted through urine. Beets are high in immune-boosting vitamin C, vitamin B folate, fiber, potassium and manganese.
CILANTRO: Love fish/seafood? A heavy fish diet may have some worried about toxic heavy metals such as lead or aluminum getting in your system. These are also capable via water and air. This tasty herb is an excellent source of minerals and vitamins; potassium, calcium, folic-acid, Vitamin A, Vitamin C and Vitamin K. While cilantro won’t eliminate heavy metals from your system entirely, cilantro aids toxin movement from your deepest body stores back into the blood stream where other agents can more easily push them out of the body. Cilantro also known to help reduce bad cholesterol, regulate heart rate and blood pressure, prevent osteoporosis and protect liver and kidneys against oxidative stress, which is an imbalance between free radicals and the anti-oxidants that neutralize them.
CRANBERRIES: Perhaps best known for their help in preventing urinary tract infections, this natural detox berry food carries a long list of cleansing benefits. Cranberries contain high amounts of proanthocyanidins (PACs) and help fight off infection by reducing the ability of certain bacteria to adhere to the urinary tract walls. These PACs, aide prevention of bacteria from binding to teeth and platelets building up in the heart, making cranberries a very useful in the fight of gum and heart disease.
GARLIC: Garlic contains a little bit of everything our bodies need. A natural detox food low in calories and high in nutrients. Garlic has been known to help treat many aliments; skin infections, combatting blood clots, lowering cholesterol, aide weight loss by regulating fat cell formation. Garlic is rich in manganese, vitamin B, vitamin C, and fiber. Allicin is the main compound found in the pod of garlic and this component is known for its anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-oxidant properties. Good for digestive and circulatory systems issues, and may play a helpful role in preventing food poisoning by killing bacteria’s such as E. coli and salmonella.

(May 31-June 3) – Domestic Orders Only
ZEOLITE Detox (volcanic ash) is a NATURAL Detox/Cleanse for entire Body, carrying toxins from the body. Detoxing metals, mercury, toxins, poisons, and daily planet pollution. Zeolite is honey-comb shape (similar to a cage, trapping toxins), a molecule that forms a molecular trap possessing the ability to selectively sort molecules, based on size. It is particularly well suited to capture inorganic metal ions in its lattice work structure. Zeolites have been used in industry, animal husbandry and human nutrition for decades due to this quality. A daily detox that allows you to stay dedicated to your daily activities, without monitoring your food or restroom locale.
What does ZEOLITE do for the body?
The body, under normal conditions, picks up through food, the environment and various other sources of contamination, heavy metals that are not in an organic form which can be assimilated and/or excreted by the body. These metals can have toxic effects and may act as destructive free radicals. Zeolite has been shown to capture and help eliminate these inorganic metal ions through the body’s normal detoxification process.
HUmineral ZEOLITE – A dual product with extra benefit!
DETOX and RESTORE
HUmineral Raw Liquid ZEOLITE is a combination product.

We are reminding our HU-Healthy followers of all the joys and health of YOGA.
For those who believe it is “too slow, a waste of time, or not a results lending exercise. Try it for one month, faithfully, and you just may change your mind. You can start with a less intense practice, Hatha or Iynegar, a slow flow or Bikram, Power, or Vinyasa, more intensity and challenging. Yoga is an enduring mind-body practice. You can do yoga with limited start up investment. Practice in your living room, bedroom, garage or basement. Start simple if you are newbie, with a single Lotus, Shavasana, Sukhasana or Sidhasana pose for 10 minutes and work your way up. Yoga practice helps your breathing, meditation/focus, stretches muscles, increases strength, range of motion, flexibility and so much more. Yoga increases the awareness of body.
Sometimes we need power and sometimes we need a soothing candlelit class. It’s all possible with YOGA.

I have been using HUmineral for several months. I am the ripe young age of 68. These minerals are powerful. I take the pills and liquid internally as well as the zeolite and can see and feel the cleansing. I feel more fed. I don’t eat food. I primarily drink all my nutrients in a blender, opening pills and crushing all my supplements to a liquid. I use the skin spray on my face, hair and hands and bottom of my feet for dry cracked heels. I could not believe the anti-aing benefits. I have been in skin care my whole life and not seen such results. It literally tightened my skin.

HEALTHY Body – HEALTHY Mind – HEALTHY Spirit
Time to get moving and healthier ….at our own healthy pace.
When a new year ushers in, we make resolutions and changes – often short lived. For me, HEALTHY is moment, minute, daily, weekly, monthly, yearly … a life long LIFESTYLE routine! Not a change we make first of year or first of June, just in time for summer. I am often approached with the question “what do I do to stay healthy and fit”? In a word MINDSET, but if I had one action word of advice …. it would be, do YOGA. I would do it everyday if there was no other exercise I practiced regularly. We thought we would start the new year reminding and sharing again the joy and health of YOGA (mind, body, soul).
For those of you who believe it is “too slow, a waste of time, or not a results lending exercise benefit. Try it for one month, faithfully, and you just may change your mind.

Practicing mostly at the end of my day, helped erase the days business and shifted me into my evening mode activity. During a class, almost every pose grabs me, from tree to handstand. I do various classes at different times to fit my mood, and challenge my body and practice. My favorite poses after practice are shavasana and balasana, a treat. Sometimes we need power and sometimes we need a soothing candlelit class. It’s all possible with yoga.

2016 is almost in our rear view mirror. Our final HU-Healthy Share of the year takes a look at Dr. Josh Axe’s 7th reason why HUMIC MINERAL.
“Evidence suggests HUmic Acid Mineral can help protect skin, treat wounds and irritations caused by conditions such as eczema, bug bites, scrapes and rashes associated with fungus/microbes. A study published in the Journal of Clinical, Cosmetic and Investigative Dermatology found that HUmic/fulvic Acid MINERAL supplementation significantly improved symptoms associated with eczema, even compared to other eczema treatments.”
HUmic/fulvic MINERAL has been used as a total body and skin remedy to not only nourish and hydrate externally, but for rash remedy to help treat poison ivy, poison oak, viral infections, spider bites and athlete’s foot. While this benefit is based more on anecedotal evidence than clinical studies, it makes sense considering HUmic/fulvic MINERAL improves circulation and immunity while lowering pain and susceptibility to infections.

Eczema is somewhat a common skin disorder today. It causes dry, red, itchy skin that can blister or crack. Eczema is generally caused by an allergic response to foods, chemicals, or other substances such as perfumes or soaps. Also, this initial sensitivity can be caused by poor digestion, conditions like leaky gut syndrome, also stress, heredity, medications, and immune deficiencies can contribute to eczema and dermatitis. Rashes can vary; small redish bumps that appear on skin as hives and raised, white or yellow bumps red and inflamed. You may experience sensitivity and itching. This can be for many reasons, allergen, clothing, home chemicals, medications, etc.
You can use essential oils topically, that may help improve irritated skin rashes, such lavender which is my favorite, but also rose and geranium.

Clinical Cosmetic and Investigational Dermatology. 2011; 4: 145-148. PMCID: PMC3173016 – Published, Sept. 8, 2011
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of carbohydrate derived fulvic acid (CHD-FA) in the treatment of eczema in patients two years and older.
In this single-center, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group comparative study, 36 volunteers with predetermined eczema were randomly assigned to receive either the study drug or placebo twice daily for four weeks.
All safety parameters remained within normal limits, with no significant differences in either group. Significant differences were observed for both severity and erythema in the placebo and CHD-FA treated groups, and a significant difference was observed for scaling in the placebo-treated group. With regard to the investigator assessment of global response to treatment, a significant improvement was observed in the CHD-FA group when compared with the placebo group. A statistically significant decrease in visual analog scale score was observed in both groups, when comparing the baseline with the final results.
CHD-FA was well tolerated, with no difference in reported side effects other than a short-lived burning sensation on application. CHD-FA significantly improved some aspects of eczema. Investigator assessment of global response to treatment with CHD-FA was significantly better than that with emollient therapy alone. The results of this small exploratory study suggest that CHD-FA warrants further investigation in the treatment of eczema.

My Personal Experience
- I work at a vitamin store and have for about 20 years. I am 63 years old, our store started carrying HUmineral brand, and as you know all the companies have great info about their product, but does it really deliver. I had a phone conversation with Candice and company and expressed all the things going on with me, tired, tired I could barely finish the day. I had some swelling and pain INFLAMMATION & PAIN, in my fingers and just sick and tired. They suggested me to start taking about 6 capsules of the HUmineral Humic Raw Powder Capsule minerals for a week or so and then cut back as I felt the product working. OMG my energy soared, my energy is great, the swelling in my fingers is gone down and I feel amazing, It almost makes me cry to think how terrible I felt. I am getting back my life and am so grateful that these products do deliver and are a miracle to me. I use the skin spray for face/hair and even started using it on my legs where I have psoriasis, the results are significant. Their literature is great. Thank you very much, Candice, you’re an angel in my eyes.
Another SKIN health success story from one of our many satisfied customers. – Diana
I have worked in the healthcare industry for 20 years, and I’ve never seen/experienced such a great product. A girl came in our store and pointed to her lip, and I said what are you pointing out? She said I have all these cold sores and I work in the food industry and I can’t go to work until they’re gone. I remember Candice telling me about cold sores but I wasn’t remembering. So I called her and she told me the protocol again. I told the girl to use HUminerals raw liquid and capsules together as paste and leave it on her lip, she told me it wasn’t in her budget to buy them. As she was leaving the store, she said I’m just going to try it, I need to go back to work. Well I didn’t see her for about a month or so and she came up to the counter and was buying HUmineral product again, she said, “do you remember me”, I didn’t. She used the HUmineral products, applied it to the lip also and within one (1) day it was 60% gone, the next day even better. It was completely gone in five days. She has been affected by cold sores often and had never seen this kind of results from a product. She was beyond happy.
Its that time of year again, when we travel near and far to be with family, friends, and loved ones. Family is the first institution. Family can be the neighbors next door, down the street, 3000 miles away, the co-worker you befriended 20 years ago, the stylist who made you gorgeous for your wedding, the client who knows everything about you. Whether adopted, foster, step, half, started as a friend and turned into a sister, started as the handyman and became Uncle Bob, ah, the list is endless. Family is that warm special feeling we have when we connect with someone. Whether the families we are born into or those we collect along the way, enjoy this special time of year and remember to focus on and celebrate all the good blessings, now and always.
Paul, Ana, Roro, thank you for staying supportive and connected through the years, your constant, unwavering presence no matter the challenge or the distance.
Your energy and support is always felt. My heart is full. Thank you!
HUmineral Healthy Share – The Mission is Health
Improved Energy & Reduced Pain
In our last HU-Healthy Share we discussed INFLAMMATION and FREE RADICALS. This month we continue with another one of Dr.Josh Axe’s seven positives for using HUmic Acid MINERAL.
HUmic/Fulvic Acid MINERAL partakers have reported improvement in energy levels, (likely due to the increased detoxification benefits of HUmic Mineral), which lowers levels of inflammation and free radical damage, and provides higher intake of electrolytes and key nutrients. HUmic Acid MINERALs major benefits, a powerful electrolyte, and rich with poly-phenols (antioxidants). This is the major reason HUmic Acid Mineral is so relevant to improved health overall and HUmineral’s mission to make all aware.
Inflammation has been found to be associated with just about every health condition. Arthritis is inflammation of the joints, heart disease is inflammation of the arteries. Instead of taking medication to reduce joint pain or lower cholesterol, we would be better served by reducing inflammation in the body overall. A diet high in antioxidants (HUmic Acid provides antioxidants), help reduce damage caused by inflammation.
“Dr. Tanya Edwards, director of the Center for Integrative Medicine, writes that inflammation is now recognized as the underlying basis of a significant number of diseases. Although inflammation has long been known to play a role in allergic diseases like asthma, arthritis and Crohn’s disease, Edwards says, Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol levels and Parkinson’s disease may all be related to chronic inflammation in the body.
There’s some evidence that HUmic/Fulvic Acid MINERALs electrolytes can help reduce swelling, decrease inflammation, soothe and relax muscles, and improve circulation. Electrolyte imbalance can cause these symptoms to worsen.
“According to research done by Doctors Across Borders, studies have found that as a natural and organic electrolyte, HUmic Acid MINERALs activate and energize nearly every biological process in the body. An electrolyte is soluble in water and works by conducting electrical currents, reducing cell mutation and helping cells survive in the face of damage caused by things like emotional stress, uncontrolled infections, unbalanced diet, prolonged loss of sleep and surgical shocks.”
Electrolytes are nutrients (or minerals), found within bodily fluids; urine, blood, sweat. They have many important functions; regulate your heartbeat, allows muscle flow/contraction for mobility. The major electrolytes within the body include calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, phosphate, and chloride. Electrolytes are given their name because they literally have an “electrical charge.” They separate into positive and negative sending signals to one another by a process of chemical exchanges, both outside and inside of your cells/body. These crucial nutrients help stimulate nerves throughout the body and balance fluid levels. An electrolyte imbalance can cause a variety of serious negative symptoms.
We uptake electrolytes by eating different foods and drinking certain fluids. You lose electrolytes via exercise, sweating, urinating.
Here are some Major Electrolytes and their roles:
Calcium: assists muscle contractions, nerve signaling, blood clotting, cell division, and forming/maintaining bones and teeth.
Potassium: assists stability of blood pressure levels, regulating heart contractions, helping with muscle functions.
Magnesium: a must for muscle contractions, proper heart rhythms, nerve functioning, bone-building and strength, digestion, stable protein-fluid balance, aids calmness.
Sodium: aids maintenance of fluid balance, needed for muscle contractions, and aids with nerve signaling.
Chloride: maintains fluid balance

I have just returned from visiting customers in the mid West (Missouri, Nebraska and Chicago). I like to explore in my travels. This trip was all about “WATER”. I discovered I love FLOATING. Floating is being submerged in 96 degree water filled with 890lbs of Epson mineral salts (depending on facility). Light soothing music plays in the distance in a dim to completely dark environment (at your control). Completely relaxing, especially when it is not bed time, is extremely difficult for me. Within 10 minutes I was sound asleep. I could NOT believe it! The room is completely sound and lightproof, providing the ultimate conditions for mind/body relaxation. Since there is no sensory stimulus for your brain to process, the parasympathetic nervous system (rest and digest) activates, which is associated with promoting healing, regeneration and nourishment for the body, and up-regulating the immune system of the body.
I took 3 Humic Mineral Vegetarian Capsules prior to entering the tank. During the experience of floating, the Epsom salt helps reduce inflammation, improves skin problems, increases blood flow and soothes the muscles and aching limbs, like HUmic Acid MINERAL. The experience of floating encourages deep relaxation which produces significant physical and mental benefits. When my session was complete, I felt very light ….as if my body were 50lbs lighter. I met my sister for dinner shortly afterwards, and she commented my skin was glowing. I will definitely be a regular Floater. Floating and being on a Jet Ski have been a few of this summers highlights thus far.
A Place to Float:
A hygienic environment is important to me when working out. I found Evanston Float Center (EFC) facilities to be impeccable. Friendly service and patient explaining the process and procedures. They also offer massage therapy before or after your float. Arrive early for your appointment as you will need to shower before entering tank and afterwards. EFC provides soap, shampoo, conditioner, earplugs, head rest for the float, towels, etc. You may want to check locations for specifics, they differ in services, prices and facility prep.
