The hidden danger in your water

May 27, 2024 in Podcast


This week I discuss the problems with today's water, including imbalances and lack of essential minerals.

I highlight the dangers of magnesium deficiency and the importance of balancing calcium and magnesium intake. I also address the depletion of minerals in water due to filtration and cleaning processes. The solution is to add ionic minerals to water to ensure proper absorption by the body.

I recently interviewed Ian Clark from Activation Products and he offers a great product called Trace Ocean Minerals which offers mineral drops sourced from the sea.

Brian (1s):

Hello and welcome to the GETLEAN and Eat Clean podcast. My name is Brian Gryn. I'm a certified health coach, trainer and author, and this podcast is for middle aged men and women looking to optimize their health and get their bodies back to what it once was 10 to 15 years ago. I will give you simple, actionable items to get long term sustainable results. Thanks for listening and enjoy the show.

Brian (32s):

Could the water be drinking every day be robbing you of your health to the most common problems with today's water are major reasons your body's so starved for healthy minerals. For one, your water's imbalanced. It is too much of one major mineral. Two, your WA water is empty. Your water is lacking many essential minerals. Now, these two problems, along with the plummeting mineral content in most fruits, vegetables, grains, and meat, are contributing to the increasing number of people who are suffering from mineral deficiencies worldwide. Our soil isn't when it was 20, 30, 40, even 50 years ago. And some of the most common mineral deficiencies are iodine, zinc, and magnesium.

Brian (1m 16s):

Among those mineral deficiencies, perhaps the most dangerous is magnesium deficiency, something that 80% of the US population suffers from. Now, once you realize that this problem is mainly from the water we're drinking, there's some simple and easy fixes that I'm gonna show you today. Now, one of the biggest problems with our drinking water is it has too much calcium than magnesium. The ratio is thrown off. Most water has more, more calcium than any other mineral, than any other mineral. This may sound like a huge problem, and it actually is. This imbalance in water leads to magnesium deficiency. Your magnesium and calcium intake needs to be balanced and equal, or else too much calcium will create some chaos in your body.

Brian (2m 1s):

Now, here's how calcium and magnesium actually differ. Calcium is found outside the cells while magnesium is found inside the cells. Calcium ex excites while magnesium calms. Calcium contributes to clotting while magnesium contributes to blood flow. Calcium's found in bones, while magnesium is found in soft tissue, calcium helps muscles contract while magnesium helps muscles relax, they each are responsible for these opposite reactions in your muscles, joints, and organs. Pretty interesting. Ideally, you want a ratio of one to one when it comes to having a balanced calcium to magnesium intake.

Brian (2m 41s):

But this has di over the years, this ratio has become imbalanced. The problem is that according to the USDA water has a three to one ratio of calcium to magnesium. That means that you're dumping three times more calcium than magnesium into your body. Every time you take a drink of water, miss mix this imbalance along with over supplementation of calcium. In most Western diets, you've and you've got a ratio of calcium to magnesium that is probably closer to four, to five to one. An imbalance ratio can lead to impaired bone health, heart disease, stress inside the body, and leaves so much excess calcium.

Brian (3m 21s):

It may become toxic. Now, magnesium keeps calcium dissolved in the blood. Too much calcium and too little magne. Magnesium can cause some form of arthritis, kidney stones, osteoporosis, calcification of arteries, and this could po potentially lead to heart attacks and cardiovascular disease. Now you can see that the problem can be serious. You get so much calcium and so little magnesium from your diet, your water ends up hurting your health. So today's water is lacking many other essential minerals as well. The full spectrum of trace minerals we drank in the soil we grew in our food 50 years ago has definitely taken a hit mainly from environmental and agricultural farming practices like monoculturing, these minerals have just been stripped away when water's also filtered and cleaned for drinking.

Brian (4m 13s):

This process alone strips away the good and the bad. So one of the casualties of removing all of the dangerous bacteria from your water, you also lose some of the healthy and natural trace minerals that you should be getting. So if you clean your water a second time at home with a personal water filter, there's practically nothing left in that water. So the water you are drinking today, perhaps even right now, is missing some of the most important essential minerals that your body could use. And this could be contributing to over calcification of joints, inflexible muscles, bad sleep, weak immune system, headaches, problems focusing. It could in induce cravings, bloating, constipation, joint pain, and much more.

Brian (4m 56s):

So this could become a serious problem. Now, what can we do about it? Well, there's something called I ionic minerals. These are minerals our bodies need to ingest daily in varying quantities. Now, what are ionic minerals? Well, they bond easily with water so your tissues can absorb them. They either have one electron too many or too few at the atomic level, which allows the minerals to fuse to water molecules and be absorbed by your cells. So ionic minerals allow you to truly reinfuse your water with minerals on a molecular level. The water molecules themselves become bonded with the minerals that you are trying to ingest, and as a result, the water you drink is able to fully transport those minerals to the areas of your body that need them most.

Brian (5m 43s):

Basically, ionic minerals are minerals that your body can actually absorb, extremely bioavailable, and they bond easily with your water. So where can you get these special minerals? Well, you can, you, I definitely recommend you can shop around and look. I recently had Ian Clark from Activation Products, and they have a product called Trace, and it's an ocean mineral solution, pure, clean, and safe. It has over 70 essential minerals sourced directly from the sea and the ocean minerals found in, in, in the trace solution. Provide your body with obviously a myriad of health benefits, soothing as lakes, protecting your organs, boosting your energy levels, and replenishing the magnesium that your body is missing.

Brian (6m 27s):

So what I like about using these trace minerals is it's an easy way to transform every glass of water into like a truly natural electrolyte drink, overflowing with healthy minerals. So just drinking tap water or filtered water or whatever it is you're drinking on a daily basis, is not gonna do the job, especially if you're working out and sweating a lot. You have to make sure that you're getting these minerals on a daily basis. Now, if you wanna go out and get like a quality sea salt and add that to your water, go right ahead. You could definitely do that, but you're, you're gonna have a tough time getting these minerals from food. Nowadays, trace contains 70 major trace minerals, 1800 milligrams of IX sea minerals, 159% of your daily required magnesium in every serving.

Brian (7m 15s):

To get that much magnesium from other mineral rich foods, you'd have to eat probably close to six pounds of salmon, 10 avocados, four cups of spinach, 20 bananas, a hundred cups of mushrooms. So the bottom line is the foods just not doing the job, especially that it used to do. The cool thing about trace, it's made from pure ocean water from the southern coast of Australia, and it's a, it's the best natural source of minerals left on the planet. So it's a perfect electrolyte for every mineral and element in your body's gonna need. And the the interesting thing about magnesium is it's responsible for hundreds of thousands of processes happening in your body at every moment of the day.

Brian (7m 56s):

When you're depleted in these kinds of minerals, things start to go wrong fairly quickly. And when you start restoring yourself with these minerals, your body is going to start forming at the cellular level a lot quicker, and you'll get pain-free joints, zero cramping, healthy heart, way less headaches, better focus, a better handle on your cravings, better digestive digestion, head thicker, healthier looking here. So I I, I'm really impressed with race, this product from Activation Products had Ian Clark on the podcast I'm a real big fan of, of his company. And I wanted to share with this you today because it's a simple, easy way to transform your empty drinking water that you're having on a daily basis.

Brian (8m 40s):

And it can go a long way to help improving your health. So if you have any questions, feel free to email me, Brian at Brian Gryn dot com. I'll leave a link in the show notes so you can check that product out or shop around for a quality ionic trace mineral. And yeah, have a great rest of the week, and I will talk to you on Friday with another great interview.
