    Gerolsteiner now $2.69 at Whole Foods. WTF. Up from $2 in the last 8 months.

    Getting additional minerals and carbonation from water will keep costing you more and more if the trend continues. I used to get a bottle of Gerolsteiner carbonated mineral water for $2 at Whole Foods in the US. A bit cheaper at Trader Joe's. A while ago it went up to about $2.20. Now it's...

    A categorization of vitamins & minerals as yin or yang

    In accordance with traditional Chinese medicine, all foods fall on a spectrum of "yin" or "yang." The notion is that a "yin" food is generally cooling and a "yang" food is generally warming. Ideally, when these are kept in balance, symptoms of an excess of either "yin" or "yang" can be resolved...

    Salt intake

    every time I drink water because I feel dehydrated and I pee dark yellow, I drink water, but after that I end up having cold extremities, cold in general and I urinate very transparent quickly. Could this be because my body is so lacking in minerals and bottled water today is almost all weakly...

    Here’s how to get all your vitamins and minerals without vegetables

    I've gotten this question quite frequently. It's actually very simple to get all your micros without eating any veggies. But don't get me wrong, I'm not saying you have to avoid veggies entirely (as long as they're not gut-irritating), they can taste absolutely great for sure. But many people...

    Help Desperately Needed: Ridged Fingernails!

    I don't know when this started, but it's bothering me a lot. I have these pretty pronounced vertical ridge-like structures in my fingernails. It was pretty hard to photograph, but I tried my best at it and editing it a bit to make them more easily visible: It may not look like much, but they...

    Shilajit

    I know RP recommends liver and oysters for minerals but does anyone use shilajit too? Is there a specific brand you seem to do well with and actually causes your mineral status to improve?

    How exactly do you get your vitamin and mineral requirments (what do you eat/drink)?

    I'm looking for the outcome of all this without needing to know everything like Dr. Peat. From reading his dense site and the suggestions of this site I've been able to get fractions of helpful info, like a puzzle I haven't completed yet. If your diet and lifestyle is healthy, what are you...

    Do coffee and cacao reduce the absorption of all the mineral

    I wonder how do coffee and cacao reduce iron absorption, is it selectively just targeting iron or is it reducing absorption of all minerals like zinc or selenium?

    RDA

    Hello, I was wondering, do you all just go by the RDA for your minerals/vitamins, etc requirements? I have a hard time believing that it could be accurate when everything else we've been taught is so wrong but I haven't read anything from Peat about it exactly either..........

    If we do choose to supplement: What can we consider the safest form of Ion in supplements? Glycinate/Chelate ? Oxide ? (Unlikely!) Citrate ? (Heard Peat say bad things about this in an interview) Stearate ? Would it differ depending on the mineral? Magnesium, Zinc etc For Calcium its clear...
