Q & A on Mineral Supplements

A website follower recently asked a question that I get asked quite a bit, so I thought I would share my response for all of you to see!


I wonder what you think about mineral supplementation. Do you think it’s necessary? Is it worth the money? Have you heard of Organa mineral drink (google it). I keep hearing about it and I just wonder what your thoughts are on it.


Supplements are a hot topic these days. There are so many of them and they are readily available. My opinion is that it is best to get your vitamins and minerals from the foods you eat. I believe that is the way we were intended to get them. Think back to the days of cavemen. They didn’t have mineral supplements or thirty varieties of multi-vitamins sitting on the shelf at the local grocery store to choose from. They got all of their vitamins, minerals and nutrients from the food they ate (and working outside in the sun – see vitamin D in vitamins part 1). In most cases, if you are eating a diet consisting of fruits, veggies, nuts, seeds, whole grains, healthy fats and lean protein you will be getting what you need. On the other hand, I am not a doctor. If your health care provider has suggested you take a vitamin or mineral supplement, or has written you a prescription of some kind, you need to discuss that with them. I do not know your situation like they do.
