Missing Mineral #1: Potassium

Potassium Deficiency

When your legs feel heavy going up stairs or or you don’t have the endurance? It is a sign of potassium deficiency. You feel bloated. Consuming more potassium helps thin lymph fluid so it can easily flow through the lymphatic tubes, which speeds up slimming. It also helps reduce high blood pressure, protect against strokes, helps prevent osteoporosis, and may help prevent kidney stones. Reprogram your metabolism to burn fat for energy instead of sugars and carbs.

Daily Requirements of Magnesium

Missing Protein #3: Collagen

Collagen

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body. Our bodies make collagen. Collagen boosting foods use Vitamin C to link specific amino acids together for collagen formation. Other catalysts are spinach, tomato, wild salmon, blueberries, red peppers and oranges (Vitamin C). Daily doses of collagen supplement range from 2.5 grams per day to ten grams per day. The supplement makers will recommend up to 30 gm per day! 12 grams (0.4 oz) is a good place to start. Collagen is used to make connective tissue. Like the name implies, this type of tissue connects other tissues and is a major component of bone, skin, muscles, tendons, and cartilage. It helps to make tissues strong and resilient, able to withstand stretching. Our bodies gradually make less collagen as we age. Despite its abundance in our bodies, collagen has become a top-selling supplement purported to improve hair, skin, and nails—key components of the fountain of youth. Collagen comprises about 60% of cartilage; meaning your joints. Get rid of your creaky knees with protein rich collagen.

Collagen Production Slows Down As You Age

Foods High In Collagen

It’s easier to give you pictures of food high in collagen rather than list them. Chicken wings come to mind where the concentration of collagen is very high. Make bone soup. Use as many collagen packed chicken wings as you can. There has been a precaution that chicken bones have a high concentration of lead. I soak my raw chicken in vinegar/water for 15 minutes before cooking. Everything i=I use is soaked and rinsed. Veggies and meats. I soak and rinse chicken. Massage every crook and cranny while soaking. At the end I pat dry unless its going in a pot to make stock. You can also roast the bones to kill some germs that may linger. Don’t worry. Tap water has trace amounts of lead in it. Your organic chickens may be drinking tap water. They too have lead. Nothing is 100% You may roast the bones before making your stock -a precaution.

Bone Broth and Veggie Broth – Both are Equally Good

Chart Your Own Course

Put together your favorite plate and estimate the potassium, magnesium and collage/protein on your plate. Make a 21 day challenge with two meals in a 6 hour window. Fast the rest of the time [18 hours].. See how you feel. Write a 21 day journal and log in each day. Talk about anything you want. It will help you stay on track. See if you get close to the daily requirement. Make up a few of your favorite dishes to create the foundation for becoming a SUPER YOU!
