I work at Life Food Organic and had not had a chance to try the HUmineral product. One day I was in my girlfriends car and saw the Humic Hydration Mineral Spray, I sprayed my face and hair and immediately noticed a difference and I felt energized is the only way I can explain.

I was recently introduced to the HUmineral product in a Healthy Market in Marina Del Rey, CA, I am using the pills and the Skin Spray. Immediately I noticed energy with the pills. I am a swimmer and am loving the Skin Spray.
Marina Del Rey, CA
I am 55 years old and type 2 diabetic, have a grueling schedule starting early, ending late. I use the Humic Powder Veggie Caps and the Zeolite and cant believe my ability to go, go, go. It definitely gives me energy and I sleep better, no bathroom issues. I also noticed a difference in my skin. It helped my discoloration on my skin, so I thought I would start using the Skin Spray and I do notice it is brighter, fresher or seems cleaner. Hard to explain, but I notice a difference.

Life Changing Benefits/Uses of HUmic/Fulvic Acid MINERAL (reported by Dr. Josh Axe)
In our last HU Healthy Share, we dealt with Gut Health and Immune Function and how Humic/Fulvic acids contain a plethora of nutrients that improve gut health, including: major and trace minerals, electrolytes, fatty acids, silica (which boosts collagen synthesis), prebiotics and probiotics. These help nourish the digestive tract and also boost the ability of “good bacteria” to repopulate and form a healthy “microbiome” environment. Maintaining a healthy intestinal tract is critical for avoiding digestive problems.
We continue our mission of “healthy at ALL stages”, through nutrition; specifically the power of HUMIC MINERAL nutrition. PLANTS ARE FOOD – Humic MINERAL is a FOOD in supplement form, nourishing and hydrating. HUmineral product is 100% chemical free, non-ingredient diluted, USA product, vegan, gluten, dairy, soy and SUGAR free and non-GMO.
This month we bring you information from Dr. Josh Axe on his reports on Digestion and Nutrient Absorption and the associated health benefits of HUmic/Fulvic Acid MINERAL.
Boost Digestion and Nutrient Absorption
Acquiring enough electrolytes and other trace minerals is important for proper metabolic functions, digestive health and nutrient assimilation. HUmic Acid supplies both MAJOR and Trace plant-based mineral. Organisms we obtain from humic/fulvic acid can be taken in small doses and still cause fast, significant improvements in the ratio of bacteria living in the gut, helping lower many unwanted digestive symptoms like constipation, bloating, diarrhea and food sensitivities. Constipation is slower than normal movement of food waste through the digestive tract. Generally accompanied by a variety of symptoms such as bloating, gas, back pain, fatigue.
Besides providing raw nutrients, humic/fulvic acid transports minerals and other nutrients to cells more effectively, boosts absorption rate of nutrients by making cells more permeable, and fights inflammation within the digestive organs.
Another benefit of taking humic/fulvic acid as a supplement is that it helps restore the body’s optimal pH level. The minerals in Humic/Fulvic Acid MINERAL are used by the body to maintain the proper pH balance so the body does not become too acidic. Humic Acids may also be able to help prevent long-term illnesses from developing and improve defense against harmful bacteria, fungus, yeast and other organisms.
We need a strong digestive system to build immunity, help control hormone production, regulate our appetite, reduce our stress response and much more.
HUmineral Humic Acid Mineral products are 100% RAW, Chemical free (no chemical washing or stripping), undiluted, USA product. Vegan, Gluten, Soy, Dairy, Nut, Wheat, Sugar FREE, and non-GMO. Available: Liquid, Vegetarian Capsule and a Face/Skin/Hair Body SKIN SPRAY for all ages. We also carry ZEOLITE raw liquid w/HUmic added (a dual product).
When the body metabolizes food (especially proteins) it tends to go acidic. Minerals are what keep the body in the proper pH balance. The major minerals that do the work are calcium and magnesium (which is why older people tend to get osteoporosis – because their bones are stripped trying to keep their body in pH balance). HUmineral non ingredient diluted Humic products carries both these minerals and understands how the body needs to use them.
pH – Unhealthy pH is an imbalance of acidity and alkalinity that allows unhealthy organisms to flourish, damages tissues and organs and compromises the immune system.
Constipation – The main and most common causes for constipation are a potassium deficiency, and low fiber and water diet. Magnesium is needed to retain potassium so taking magnesium (or Humic Acid which has a complete MINERAL table) will solve both, a magnesium and potassium deficiency because you’ll start to retain the potassium you get from your food. Also contributing factors of constipation: stress, inactivity, certain medications, an imbalance in intestinal flora, thyroid problems.

HUmic MINERAL | Gut Health
Here at HUmineral, our mission is health, through nutrition; specifically MINERAL nutrition, as all our Hu-Healthy followers know well. Humic MINERAL is a FOOD in supplement form. HUmineral product is 100% chemical free, USA product and non-GMO.
Our next few HU Healthy Shares, will bring you information from Dr. Josh Axe and his reports on the health benefits of Humic/Fulvic Acid MINERAL for several areas of health. This month we will look at Leaky Gut and the road to Good Gut Health. A healthy GUT is essential to overall health.

Improving Gut Health and Immune Function
Humic and Fulvic acids contain a plethora of nutrients that improves gut health, including: trace minerals, electrolytes, fatty acids, silica (which boosts collagen synthesis), pre-biotics and probiotics. These help nourish the digestive tract and also boost the ability of “good bacteria” to repopulate and form a healthy “microbiome” environment. We need a strong digestive system to build immunity, help control hormone production, regulate our appetite, reduce our stress response and much more. As a result of gut permeability (when particles are able to escape through the gut lining and enter the bloodstream where they should not normally be), inflammation is triggered and autoimmune reactions can occur. There is some evidence that consuming humic/fulvic acid mineral promotes a healthy intestinal tract and immune system (digestive disorders and other issues, including: SIBO symptoms, small intestine bacterial overgrowth, inflammatory bowel disorders, bacterial infections (respiratory, urinary tract, etc.), or the flu and common colds.

HUmic Hydration for Nutrient Absorption
Healthy tips to experience more sunshine days and less anxiety.
Seasonal Affective Disorder, S.A.D. This is a vitamin D deficiency. We only make vitamin D from late March through October depending on where we live. Between October and the end of March, the suns rays are too low in the sky for us to make our own.
Those of darker toned complexion and those living in the Northeast U.S. are the most prone to the condition but nearly everyone gets it because we can only store 3 months worth of vitamin D in our bodies. So, by the end of December through March everyone is deficient. One of the deficiency symptoms of vitamin D is depression.
The highest rate of broken bones occurs during this December-March window, despite the fact that there’s less out-door activities during this time. This is also the time when most suicides occur, January through March.
5-HTP:(5-Hydroxy-tryptophan) – A naturally occurring amino acid and precursor; and metabolic intermediate in the biosynthesis of neurotransmitters, serotonin and melatonin, from Tryptophan. Serotonin levels in the nervous system are essential for many aspects of our daily lives: responsible for feelings of well being and normal sleep patterns. Serotonin plays an important role in controlling anger, aggression, body temperature, mood, sleep, human sexuality, appetite, and metabolism. Obesity, PMS, migraines, depression, anxiety, insomnia and addictive behavior have all been associated with low levels of serotonin.
So, if you have ever experienced the rush of nonstop “to do’s” syndrome: never enough time between work, kids, family, school activity, traffic clog, getting car serviced, going through divorce, planning a graduation, a dinner party or a trip and you find yourself having a “less than sunny” moment, day or week (because we all do at times), pick up bottle of 5-HTP, and Vitamin D for your cupboard. Usually 4,000 IU per day is good. Take your Vitamin D with a meal that contains some fat. If you don’t take them with a meal that contains fat, they won’t absorb properly. Usually you will notice a difference within a few days.
**If you are one that takes pharmaceutical anti-depressants, (SSRIs), such as Prozac, Lexapro, etc., you should NOT supplement with 5-HTP as it could result in too much serotonin in your system.
**HUmineral HUmic Mineral aids absorption. See our BLOG on water, collagen, absorption and hydration.

|M.u.s.i.c – Pursue your Healthy Beat|
State To State Band
Music has brought individuals together for centuries. Whether in the living rooms and basements (if you are an east coast or mid westerner) of our homes or one of our nations many concert venue halls world wide. Music can be calming, healing, motivating, thought provoking, uplifting …no matter the genre, everyone can find their beat. And lets not forget dancing to music is not only fun but a great form of workout. Thus the surge in zumba, merengue, ballet, ballroom and other dance styles offered in studios and fitness establishments.
I am always incredibly filled with joy when I get to experience a persons deepest genuine passion and talent, and get to see them actually pursuing it. Some, so unassumingly but daily and passionately. This was Andrew Orvis, Health Nutritionist Manager at Rainbow Acres in Culver City, CA. I had no idea he was a musician, he has always been extremley health focused in our communications over the years. In a recent visit and interview with Andrew, he shared his “other side” (which we all have, and are hopefully tapping into or will, sooner than later). Andrew first became involved in nutrition while attending music school in Boston (Berkeley School of Music). He needed a position to get him through school and started working at the local Whole Foods, where he eventually ended up in the Nutrition Department. After which he worked for an established Supplement Manufacturer as a consultant and educator before landing is current Health Nutritionist post at Rainbow Acres in Culver City, CA. In addition to Andrews holistic skills, he is one of the founding members of State To State Band.
You may peruse the following links for more information on State To State;
Since releasing their first LP, No Bounds, in 2014, State to State have established themselves as flag bearers of atmospheric rock, while looking to create a new path for themselves in a landscape forged by bands like Muse, Radiohead and Interpol. On limited tours of the west coast, they brought a stadium-sized sound into smaller venues and left audiences from San Diego to Seattle, converts to the cause. In addition to recent residencies at The Hotel Cafe and The Viper Room, out of Los Angeles, CA and outdoor events like Eat See Hear & Showtime’s Street Food Cinema, they are busy enlisting new recruits at venues throughout the southwest and beyond. The dynamic landscape of ambient guitar textures, anthemic riffs, and haunting melodies from vocalist/guitarist Shea Stratton, and guitarist, Andrew Orvis, is well navigated by the authoritative rhythm section of drummer, Feudor Lokshin, and bassist, Patrick Morgan.
“My Little Phony” is the first single off of their forthcoming EP, Motives, which was produced and recorded by Grammy-nominated Producer/Engineer, Ian MacGregor (Katy Perry, Twenty One Pilots, All-American Rejects, Ariana Grande) at Greg Wells’ Rocket Carousel Studio in Culver City, CA. Motives will be available digitally and physically on Feb. 5th, 2016. With tour dates in the works throughout 2016, they have their eyes set on the rest of the country.
State to State Band participated in a crowd-funding campaign for their new EP that releases on Feb 5th, so the public could pre-order the new record, purchase T-shirts and other merchandise to help them fund the making of the record. State To State donated 10% of the funds earned beyond their goal, to “Musicians on Call” – a charity that provides live music to the bedsides of hospital patients that would not have access otherwise. Talented and caring, we love this at HUmineral.

ADD, ADHD, Autism,
Alzheimer’s, Gluten intolerance; Ring a Bell?
Today, a growing factor in our society for children and adults.
Have you or your kids felt “cloudy” or “fuzzy”, been rushed in the morning, afternoon and evening, juggling school, work, activity, general routine and just not quite paying attention, forgetful a little less focused (or in some cases a LOT less focused) and lacking energy? Well, no wonder with all the pollutants and toxins we breathe, eat and that seeps into our bodies via our skin, our largest organ. Additionally we can take in toxins via vaccinations, having had poor dental work with old metal or mercury fillings, increasingly unhealthy diets due to boxed, preservative and the fast food frenzy we can often find ourselves sitting down to, or eating on the go, for at least 2 meals a day.
These boxed, preservative and fast foods offer little in the way of nutrition and more importantly – a serious lack of MINERAL nutrients, which are absolutely necessary for proper health.
Most of us are familiar with the regular vitamins. However, did you know Vitamins DON’T WORK without MINERALs present in the system to TELL THE VITAMINS HOW TO WORK? Did you know that Minerals can detoxify, cleanse and help with attention issues?
Minerals are the carrier of the important nutrients we consume. Minerals are like the SPARK plugs that activate VITAMINS in the body.
Most of us know about calcium or magnesium (which many are deficient in today). But do you know about Beryllium, Bismuth, Boron, Bromine, Cadmium, Calcium, Carbon, Cerium, Cesium Lithium, Lutetium, Manganese, Molybdenum, Neodymium, Nickel, Niobium, Osmium, Palladium, Phosphorus, Platinum, Potassium, Praseodymium, Rhenium, Rhodium, Rubidium and Selenium? These are just some of the MINERALS the body NEEDS in order for proper function.
In the case of calcium and magnesium: did you know calcium and magnesium are fundamental nutrients. They have a crucial effect on cellular health. They must balance each other in order to experience good health. Calcium allows muscles to contract and allows blood to clot, magnesium allows for muscle relaxation and blood to flow smoothly. Balance of these two minerals are crucial and Humic/Fulvic Acid minerals contains both these major minerals, in addition to over 70 trace MINERALS the body requires.
How can we achieve getting more MINERALs in our diets and eat healthier? Start with a balanced diet; we’ve all heard this before – right? However, if you make your side and your main dish with fresh ingredients and serve plenty of GREEN, you’re on the right track.
+Magnesium: (a common major mineral deficiency): Apples, Apricot, Avocado, Bananas, Baked Potatoes, Broccoli, Brown Rice, Cantaloupe, Figs, Grapefruit, Oatmeal, Peaches, Navy/Lima Beans, Spinach, Salmon, Tofu, Yogurt
+Lithium: Beef Liver, Green Leafy Veggies, Legumes, Seafood, Whole Grains, Yeast
+Manganese: Pineapple juice, tea, cocoa, apples, apricots, peaches, fig, cantaloupe, grapefruit, green leafy vegetables, salmon, soybeans, tofu.
+Potassium: Avocadoes, bananas, baked potatoes, tomatoe sauce, papaya, lima beans, cooked pumpkin, watermelon, kiwifruit, sardines, flounder, squash, broccoli, pinto beans, pomegranate.

A – A Daily and complete cleanse, head to toe – Zeolite is Volcanic Ash, which forms a molecular trap that has ability to selectively sort molecules, based on size.
Q – What does Zeolite do in the Body?
A – The body under normal circumstances picks up through foods, 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 are generally very destructive free radicals. Zeolite has been shown to capture and help eliminate these inorganic metal ions through the body’s natural detoxification process.
HUmineral RAW Zeolite Mineral is a combination product. While supplying zeolite to help remove potentially toxic metal ions from the body, HUmineral product also contains Humic/Fulvic Acid Mineral, supplying over 70 organic major & trace minerals in organic form which replenish necessary minerals to the cell, restoring focus and balance to the body.

INTERNAL HEALTH = EXTERNAL SHINE
Time for “CHANGE”
When Healthy INTERNALLY, We Benefit EXTERNALLY!
Changers, for me, have meant adding to or removing from, to increase health, balance, meaning, education and joy in my life, professionally and personally. Every year I contemplate two “changers” I find if two are identified, and only one is achieved, we’re still ahead. I invite you to try this as you start a new year. It is a positive gift to self. The change/s could be internal or external with the goal being to commit to a change that improves your life somehow.
One year a “changer” for me was to get back to reading. I used to read a dozen books a year and at some point in conversation with a friend, realized I had not read a book in almost 3 years. I was appauled and thought how could this be …..life! Within two weeks, I started a book club to jump start me, and made myself “club secretary” (to be accountable to stick with it). I read 11 books that year and am still enjoying being back to reading, 12 years later; even though in year 2 the book club discontinued. We must be committed to our goals.
Here’s a good night stand wind down …
In need of a good book with a good story to redirect the mind as you power down for the night? This is a GOOD one. Some nights, for me, present a challenge to feel tired and fall asleep. This historical 600ish page novel, set in 14th Century offers drama, politics, romance and more. Even in the denser areas of this book, each night I could not wait to read and did not want to stop. It’s long, involved, emotional and takes you away. This is why I enjoyed it. I totally escaped my normally busy mind, every single night (always delivered a good wind down and deep sleep). Thoroughly enjoyed!
One of my 2016 Changers is food based. Dinner parties with more substitive raw/vegan servings has been on my list. I am finally going to know more on the preparation of raw and vegan with the assistance of 118 Degrees and their raw food education classes. I have mastered every kind of SALAD and many basics. I met Sharyn in New York at a holistic conference a few years ago, purchased her book, “The PURE CURE”, and have enjoyed getting to know her, and experience her continual growth, and constant and infectious passion for “health as a lifestyle” which is right in line with the HUmineral mission.
Sharyn Wynter’s is an author and naturopath with more than 30 years experience in health and wellness. Internationally recognized for the regenerative program she advocates, Sharyn leads a lifestyle based on raw, whole-food nutrition and toxin-free living. She is the author of the highly regarded guide to toxins in the living environment, The Pure Cure: A Complete Guide to Freeing Your Life from Dangerous Toxins.

Guests Who Are Coming To Dinner!
Yearly, I will get a call somewhat out of the blue asking if I am serving dinner for the holiday/s. Then comes the statement “I’m not sure what I am doing or where I will go”. Immediately I invite them and I have another dinner guest.
Many people, for various reasons love an invite at times. We may not be aware, because we view most in our social circles as “having family, friends” or committed to a yearly habit for the most part. It does not occur to us to extend an invite or to be aware that someone may not have a place on a particular holiday. Maybe they are not traveling home, or the usual place of celebration has decided to travel themselves or take a hiatus one year. Everyone needs time off.
Having guest (and being a guest), besides immediate family, is one of the most positive highlights of many of my celebrations. Check your bases and if you can include and extend an invite, you will be spreading so much joy. You WILL be making a positive difference.
Another way to share your celebration, without having the work of another place setting (which can tip the scale for some), is to have a dessert bar (and if you wish, call it a dessert/cocktail bar), “after the main dinner”, invite friends that had dinner elsewhere. This is a great way to really “get to know” and share time and your holiday experience with extended family, friends, work acquaintances or other social circles difficult to find space for in our regular scenarios. And isn’t this what the season is all about? And who says we can’t continue the sharing after the season with the occasional get together… a great way to stay connected.
Enjoy all your celebrations.
