Minerals are essential nutrients that your body needs to thrive. What exactly does a diet rich in minerals do for your well-being? In “God’s Original Diet,” Rev.

They also regulate cellular metabolism.

When plants take in this water from the earth, they accumulate the minerals and turn them into a form that the body can easily absorb. This is the way God has always intended for man to obtain minerals – from plants consumed.
Our water often contains minerals in a form that are difficult to utilize, so we turn to living fruits, vegetables and juices.
