Hello from the desk of 90 For Life Australia,


I have a question – why is it that we can put a man on the moon, we can harness the atom and we have more information available at our finger tips than ever before in human history and yet Medical Science is looking for a definitive cure for degenerative diseases or find a cure for cancer??

According to a report published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, the total U.S. spending on medical research has doubled in the past decade to nearly $95 billion a year. Despite this huge cost we are still no closer to solutions or answers. The expectation is that this amount will soon peak at $100 billion a year and this is just in the US alone. This is just nothing short of insanity!

It’s actually not a mystery or insanity. We just need to first understand how the Medical Industry works. We need to realise that if anything comes from nature it cannot be patented. It has to be invented before you can patent anything, which is why the pharmaceutical industry will never be interested in anything that comes from nature.

What they are interested in is to find out if something works in nature, take it to the laboratory, pull it apart, look at that molecule, see what the active ingredient is and then see if they can reassemble it and call it “ours.” Now they can patent it and that’s the bigger story.

This is the reason that the medical establishment, in the Western World at least today, is oriented very strongly toward drug therapy. Indeed, should we be actually asking how do we cure a disease or how can we treat its symptoms but rather, should we be asking how do we avoid getting ill in the first place?

In this issue, we will be examining what is the first fundamental but essential missing element that may cause our bodies to break down.

We are told about the body’s need for 90 essential nutrients. Of those 90 essential nutrients, 60 are actually minerals and trace minerals. Without minerals, vitamins are useless because minerals are needed to absorb vitamins. Because they are inorganic substances, minerals can’t be synthesized by the human body. They must be obtained from the foods we eat.

And the shocking truth is that millions are suffering around the world because of mineral depletion in the soil in which we grow our crops and this has been confirmed by the World Health Organisation, the UK Ministry of Agriculture, UNICEF and The Royal Society of Chemistry. Tests have shown a massive 85% depletion in most soils and this is devastating to our health.

What the REAL experts are saying –
“This one sentence has killed more people than all the wars in American history: ” You get all the nutrition you need from the four food groups.” – Dr. Joel Wallach BS DVM ND (The mineral Doctor)

“The root of all disease is directly related to a lack of minerals” – Dr. Linus Pauling (biochemist, author, educator, Nobel Prize Winner)

“The human body needs at least 60 (plant) minerals to maintain a disease and ailment free state” and “Vitamins are basically useless in the absence of minerals” – Dr. Gary Price-Todd MD (Researcher, author, ophthalmologist and nutritional expert)

“We should be eating plant based minerals” – Dr. Carolyn Dean MD. ND. Nutritionist

Dr Wallach tells us that if our budget does not stretch to the full 90 nutrients with our supplementation, then to stay healthy, minerals are the very least we need to supplement with, but we will need to also clean up our diets.

Why are minerals so crucial to our good health?
Minerals have a role in nearly every human bodily function from building healthy bones and teeth, to energy production, to immune support. Minerals are so crucial to our health that even slight imbalances of some minerals can have major consequences; ranging from low energy levels to gastrointestinal issues. These are the facts – there is not one enzymatic process inside the human body that does not demand a mineral for its process. Deficiency causes disease, plain and simple. Minerals are necessary for virtually every single metabolic process that happens in the human body.

Centuries of farming and irrigation have eroded life giving minerals from our soils. Mineral deficient soils are then used to grow and cultivate our food. Because of this, our food is lacking in the essential plant minerals necessary to live a long and healthy life. It’s not surprising that when our body is robbed of essential plant minerals it is unable to repair, rebuild and protect itself against illness and disease.

Minerals play a critical role in keeping the human body healthy and it is important that we not only understand why they are so critical but also why the minerals we put into our bodies should be colloidal plant derived.

The difference between colloidal plant derived and metallic minerals –
Here’s how it’s supposed to work…

    1. The plant digests the metallic minerals from the soil.
    1. The plant adds a hydrogen atom and completely changes the molecular structure of the metallic minerals. (The metallic minerals are transformed into ‘food state’ minerals).
    1. The human or animal eats the plants containing ‘Plant Derived Minerals’.
  1. The human or animal can absorb nearly 100% of the plant derived minerals that all the cells in the body need for them to work correctly.

Plant Derived Minerals are truly the most efficient way to get our minerals because our bodies are designed to absorb almost 100% of this type of mineral. Metallic Minerals are MASSIVE compared to Plant Derived Minerals. To give you a comparison: a red blood cell is 7 microns. A Plant Derived Mineral particle is 0.01 micron (or less): that is 1/7000th the size of a red blood cell.

Minerals from organic sources, consisting of plant derived minerals, have an electromagnetic charge that is negative. The electromagnetic charge being positive or negative is a major factor that affects mineral availability and subsequent absorption: unfortunately, it is a factor about which very little is understood by manufacturers, consumers and health professionals alike.

It is plants and their unique chemistry that are responsible for the conversion of a mineral’s electromagnetic charge from positive to negative. Because of chemical processes in the plant during photosynthesis which involve chlorophyll, the positive electromagnetic charges on the minerals are changed to negative. The positively charged intestinal wall attracts particles that are negatively charged.

Mineral Requirements in Animals and Humans
“Millions of years ago the soil near the earth’s surface were saturated with dozens of minerals. The plants of prehistoric times were rich in minerals because there was an abundant supply for them to feed upon from the soil. When man began to till the soil, continuous cropping gradually caused the soils to lack minerals. Farmers then needed to scatter fertilizer (minerals) on the soil to continue growing crops. Mineral depletion also compromises a plant’s immune system. This results in the need for carcinogenic pesticides which is poisonous to humans, but which is absorbed by the plant and into the human food chain.

Only 8 minerals are available in any kind of quantity in most of the food we eat today. We know plants can make vitamins, amino acids and varying amounts of fatty acids, if they are healthy by being grown in soils containing abundant minerals. However, if the soil lacks minerals, the plants will not contain them because plants cannot make minerals.

There are two types of minerals our body’s need to stay healthy: major or macro minerals, and trace minerals. A deficiency in any major or trace mineral can lead to poor health and serious illness that affects numerous body systems.

Minerals do not occur in a uniform blanket on the crust of the earth. The finest, organic, plant derived minerals available in the world are mined by Youngevity, from a humic shale seam of prehistoric vegetation located in Emery County, Utah USA and is known as the Rockland Mine. The layers of minerals have been sealed under a cap of sandstone which succeeded in preserving it from pollution and contaminants. This 70-million-year old plant matter is bursting with the same natural minerals eaten by the dinosaurs.

The health-giving results from consuming Plant Derived Minerals can be mind blowing.

The answer to many health problems suffered today has been with us all along. Now YOU know the secret, join us in our passionate mission to educate the world.


Youngevity’s Majestic Earth Minerals are 100% Plant Derived, liquid, organic, colloidal minerals. They contain 19,000 mg of essential minerals per quart. Dr. Wallach’s Majestic Earth Minerals are unadulterated minerals, straight from the plant with nothing added to them like sugar or flavouring or chemical preservatives and nothing subtracted.
