Your brain uses almost 20% of all the oxygen you take into
your lungs. Your blood carries the oxygen to your brain.
This is why clogged arteries cause memory loss and
organizational skills impairment. Today's society is a fast
food society and fast foods are basically void of nutrients
and full of artery clogging fats.

You hear a great deal these days about information processing -
usually has "new age technology" tacked onto the end of it
usually referring to the revolution that has occurred using
computers to communicate. Communication is a very important
part of life,Guest Posting whether it be a husband to wife or parent to child,
company to employees, clients to customers it still remains the
most important thing we need to do. The computer does not hold
that power only as a tool for long distance communication. The
real true communicator is - The "Brain" and it's power may still
be compared to computers as we know them but the brain is a
much older and definitely more powerful form of information
processing and communication. Our brain is of the utmost
importance in our lives and without it working up to par you
are a either a vegetable or retarded.

When growing up (in the olden day as my children and
grandchildren call it), there was no such thing as a computer,
calculator, TV etc.. We communicated by talking to each other,
writing, playing games and visiting others while really
communicating and socializing. Learning about each other.

Even though we may still compare our brain to our
computer there is a vast difference in what we actually
process in our brain and in our computer but not so
different really. Because the nutrition put into our brain
is equivalent to the electrical current put into our
computers that makes them work. Without the electrical
current being completed the computer won't work…
Without proper nutrients to the brain it won't function
well either.

Lets compare the two -computer versus brain - by saying
if you don't have an electrical outlet to plug your computer
into or a battery pack to provide the electrical current there
will be no information data input or output from the computer.
By the same token, our brain needs electrical power not
from an electrical plug-in but from nutrition. The saying goes
for computers, "garbage in, garbage out." Our brain is
the same way, "garbage in, garbage out." What are you
feeding your brain?

Your brain uses 50% of your energy and only occupies a
small portion of your total body volume, yet is the most
important organ in your body. If you are tired frequently,
it could very well be that you are not feeding your brain
properly. Are you forgetting things that shouldn't be
forgotten? Could be a malnourished brain. Your
brain and body requires complete minerals and trace minerals to
function on all cylinders. Are you putting them all in or are
you putting in the three nutrients that are in our fruits, grains
and vegetables gleaned from their fertilizers? Or are you
putting in all the chemicals and hormones fed our animals
to fatten them and make them worth more dollars? It now
takes more than our foodstuff to give our brain the
nourishment required to function properly.

After World War II the farmers were told that the new
fertilizers would produce better and more crops than
the natural (manure) fertilizers they had used prior to that.

Exactly what happened?

Gradually the natural (manure) went by the way side taking
with it the nutrients that they put into the ground and had
been supplying us with a complete nutrient base.
Chemical manmade fertilizers have all of three nutrients,
nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus. What happened to
the other 91, which our bodies need?

This also set up a chain reaction with our food animals
as well. The feed they are fed now has only those three
nutrients absorbed from the fertilizers along with the
chemicals and hormones, which are added to fatten
them, therefore prevent the natural (manure) fertilizers
from containing the nutrients of old! Setting up a viscous
cycle! There are some nutrients added to the animal feed,
usually 7 to 23, but not the complete 94 as required by
our bodies to be healthy. The following was taken directly
from Website Southwest Livestock Mineral Company

"We blend for dairy cattle, beef cattle, sheep,
goats (Boer, Milk, and angora) and swine.
Our custom minerals for domestic consumers
carry a consumption guarantee. We have
FDA clearances for many medications
including Bovatec®, Rumensin®, Rumatel®,
Mecadox®, Banmith®, Deccox®, and
several antibiotics."

Tests with animals have shown that by withholding certain
nutrients from their diets they forget tricks that they had
learned and usually could perform with no problem. In
both animals and humans, aging compounds the
problem of memory loss and retention - doesn't have to -
later on I will show you why. In the early 1950's large
numbers of animals - cattle, hogs, sheep, chickens and
turkeys - began getting diseases never before seen in
animals, such as heart disease, cancer, arthritis, etc.
In most cases veterinary scientist traced the cause to
specific nutritional deficiencies. Today all feed for
animals have added nutrients to eliminate a large portion
of those illnesses and diseases along with some not so
good added chemicals in their foodstuff as you can see

Today the chemicals used on the farms and fed to the
cattle and sheep in the form of nutrients are taking its
toll on our bodies and minds. For what affects our minds
also effects our bodies!

Here is an excerpt from the United States Government
in 1936 - Verbatim from the Farm Land Depletion
Senate Document #264 of 1936; "Our physical well-being
is more directly dependent upon minerals we take into our
systems than upon calories or vitamins, or upon precise
proportions of starch, protein or carbohydrates we
It goes on to say, "Do you know that most of us today
are suffering from certain dangerous diet deficiencies
which cannot be remedied until depleted soils from
which our food comes are brought into proper mineral
balance." "No man today can eat enough fruits,
vegetable and grains to supply his stomach with the
mineral salts he requires for perfect health, because
his stomach isn't big enough to hold them! And we
are turning into big stomachs."
(End of Excerpt)

Has that come to pass or what? We are a society of
big stomachs. Obesity is rampant and you thought it
was your entire fault. So even if you eat the very best
food available there still is a chance you would not be
nourishing your brain and body like you should. I am
not telling you this to depress you but to inform you -
I also hope to make you act - so that you may make
some right decisions for your brain's necessary nutrients.
I take supplements daily to prevent that from happening to
me and being 63 years old my brain seems to be functioning
very well but wasn't a few years ago, prior to taking mineral
& vitamin supplements.

The older you get the more malnourished you will be and it
will become more noticeable. Malnourishment comes on
slow and most times it isn't detected. Some people
become very ill early in life, which makes it very possible
that the malnourishment is being passed from parent to child!
Why do you think that all the Alzheimer's and senile dementia
is diagnosed these days so much more than 30 or 50 years ago?

One of the very first things on the list to do for yourself and your
brain is make sure you are getting good quality digestible liquid
minerals and vitamins! "With taking them I have noticed a big
improvement in my whole well being" Whipped Chronic
Fatigue Syndrome right out of my system and controlling
chronic anemia along with 25 years of fibromyalgia.

Here is a LITTLE KNOWN SECRET The 1999 Physician's
Desk Reference (page 1542) shows that vitamins and
minerals in a PILL form are only 10% to 20% absorbed by the
body. DID YOU KNOW? That in 1998 Tacoma Washington alone,
250,000 pounds of undigested vitamin and mineral pills were
pulled out of the sewers every six weeks. In Salt Lake City,
over 150 gallons of vitamin and mineral pills show up in their
filters every month and numerous other cities sewer systems.
The reason; high metallic content of these pills.
Metallic minerals like oyster shells, carbonates, oxides and
dolomites have the consistency of crushed up rocks, which
our bodies were not designed to digest. So even if you are
taking vitamins and minerals how sure are you that you are
absorbing sufficient amounts? The only way to know
absolutely is to make sure they are capsules, liquid or powder.

You hear about this herb or that herb being brain food,
so to speak, but there are numerous ones the Chinese have
used for centuries that are not commonly talked about or
even know about and when taken together create a healthier
more defined brain. I am a believer of covering all bases.

Dateline 10/21/99: for almost one hundred years, it has been
a mantra of biology - brain cells do not regenerate. In a
startling discovery that could have profound implications for
treating brain disorders and injuries, researchers at
Princeton University have discovered that new neurons are
continually being added to the brains of adult monkeys.

The neurons are added to the cerebral cortex of the brain.

The cerebral cortex is the most complex part of the brain
and scientists were startled to find neuron formation in this
"high" brain area. The cerebral cortex is responsible for
higher level decision making and learning.
The researchers found the formation of new nerve cells;
a process called neurogenesis, in three areas of the
cerebral cortex:
·Prefrontal region which controls decision-making.
·Inferior temporal region which plays a role in
visual recognition.
·Posterior parietal region which plays a role in
3D representation.

The researchers believe that these results call for a
fundamental reassessment of the development of the
primate brain. For almost a century, scientists have believed
that primate brains do not regenerate or add new neurons
after maturity. It was a fundamental tenet of neuroscience
that the brain could not repair itself or grow new cells.
In recent years, scientists have begun to chip away at the
dogma as previous research has shown that other areas
of the brain such as the hippocampus add new neurons.

Many researchers believed that these previous results were
anomalies or were confined to "lower" parts of the brain.
These results are even more startling since they occur in
the most advanced part of the brain.

Researchers are optimistic that with further study scientists
might one day unlock the key to this process of brain cell
growth and use the knowledge to treat a variety of brain
disorders and diseases.

What do you think? How might this discovery impact our
ability to treat Brain injuries? How do you think that
neuronal generation may differ in humans?

It is believed that similar processes occur in humans since
monkeys and humans have very similar brain structures.
Would you like to engage in rebuilding lost brainpower?

For a list of herbs that will keep your brain arteries working
and your brain processing information, oxygen circulating
and providing you the power to communicate when needed

Compare the following mineral nutrients to the three in
manmade fertilizers! How many are missing? The only
place left to find all these minerals is the ocean and that
could be in danger due to the pollution!

Magnesium, Chloride, Sodium, Potassium, Sulfate, Calcium,
Bicarbonate, Chromium, Bromide, Nitrogen, Iodine, Rubidium,
Zinc, Copper, Strontium, Silicon, Manganese, Boron, Scandium,
Phosphorus, Molybdenum, Cesium, Gold, Silver, Vanadium,
Dysprosium, Nickel, Fluoride, Cobalt, Titanium, Barium, Erbium,
Yttrium. Holmium, Neodymium, ytterbium, Bismuth, Terbium,
Lutetium, Samarium, Europium, Selenium, Beryllium, and
other trace minerals too numerous to print here but a total of 84 in all.

Remember, feed your brain or lose the brainpower you were born with!
