The Aging Brain
- How to Slow the Aging Process with Minerals
(The Body’s Electrical Transmitters)
by Gloria Gilbere N.D., D.A.Hom., PhD

We 70 million baby boomers are reaching “that” age when we need to ensure we’re doing as much as possible for our brain health as well as our physical health.

With aging comes the reality that our brain chemistry can easily become unbalanced if it isn’t provided the proper nutrition, especially minerals and electrolytes—the body’s electrical transmitters.

When we’re younger, our bodies are better able to tolerate abuse from various sources, including, but not limited to, consumption of processed and overcooked foods (depleted of enzymes and nutrients), excessive stress (mental and physical), and consumption of alcohol and soft drinks (found to actually deplete mineral reserves), as well as environmental factors. Slowly, however, the symptomatic progression of “dis-ease” manifests.

As we age, it is vital our brains maintain a constant storehouse of neurotransmitters and the raw materials (minerals) to keep them in synchronicity (balanced), for optimum function.

Keeping the Messengers Healthy

Neurotransmitters are chemicals that occur naturally in the brain, allowing for the transmission of messages from one nerve cell to another. They are essentially chemical signals used by neurons to communicate with one another, responsible for making the brain work and also determining how you think, feel, and act.

Minerals are cofactors for enzymes, meaning that enzymes depend upon minerals for their function, being the actual life-blood for the enzymes. When the body is depleted of minerals, the enzymes become sluggish or paralyzed, detoxification systems are compromised (especially the liver, kidneys, and large intestine), and pH balance is lost, leading to the development of chronic disorders we many times wrongfully associate with “normal” aging.

According to Michael Lesser, M.D., “You never get any more neurons than you are born with.” In fact, the brain loses nerve cells as it ages. The stepped-up breakdown can throw your brain chemistry out of balance and lead to, among many other things, a decrease in the general level of brain activity, interference with the ability to think and remember, and depression.

Diseases of Aging

After age 50, startling new conditions emerge, the most prevalent being depression, muscle weakness and cramping, brain fog, soft and connective tissue pain, and insomnia. Additionally, many conventional drug approaches used for these and other conditions can themselves create chemical imbalances and depletion of essential minerals, adding to the very problems they’re meant to resolve.

Health experts worldwide agree that mineral combinations found in whole foods possess what the body needs most for maintenance, healing, and longevity. Minerals from a whole-food source are important because they offer the best absorption and utilization within the body.

Minerals, in order to be effective, must work in synchronicity with one another. An example of this includes: Calcium, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus and iron

  • Copper, iron and zinc
  • Sodium and potassium The whole-food source I found that contains minerals essentially predigested and in natural combinations easily used by the body is Capra Mineral Whey, derived from natural goat-
    milk mineral whey.

Nature’s Anti-aging Tools

Goat-milk mineral whey by Mt. Capra is plentiful in electrolytes, making up the electrically charged ions that help regulate water balance, acid-alkaline balance, osmotic pressure, nerve impulse conduction, muscle contraction and transport of energy in and out of the cells.

It is known that 90 percent of the minerals in milk are contained in the whey, which is a natural by-product of the cheese making process. The dehydrated goat-milk whey in Capra Mineral Whey is a pure alkaline-based food, and is derived from goats raised free of chemical additives. It is made by dehydrating goat-milk whey from which residual fat and protein have been removed, retaining all the minerals of the original whey. Thus, the milk minerals and more than 20 valuable trace elements are contained in the dehydrated whey powder and are readily available for absorption and assimilation by the body, soothing the stomach while providing the electrical “charge” needed for neurotransmission, as well as promoting health-enhancing intestinal flora.

Lessons from Far Away Neighbors

Our neighbors in the Middle East and Europe have valued goat whey for centuries as a prized special drink to promote health, youthfulness and longevity. They know the importance of supplementing with minerals that are easily digested and contain a broad array of minerals and trace elements, assisting the body in making up for some of the abuses of our lifestyles and dietary deficiencies.

“Wheys” to Build Health and Slow the Aging Process

Most people over 50 associate aches, pains, and digestive distress as a “normal” aging right of passage; it is not. Chronic indigestion, intestinal irritation, and joint and soft tissue pain, such as that experienced in arthritis and fibromyalgia, are often signs that bio-organic sodium is deficient in the body. Bio-organic sodium is not to be confused with table salt sodium, which is processed at extreme heat and is ionized and crystallized. Organically bound forms of macro and trace minerals are better retained in the body than inorganic or manufactured forms.

Bio-organic food sodium is always found with potassium, calcium, magnesium, and in trace elements. It is almost never found in nature. Heart irregularity, fatigue, constipation, and immune deficiency may also be signals of bio-organic potassium deficiency. Few people get enough of the right kind of sodium and potassium from food sources as part of their normal diet.

Sodium is stored mainly in the wall of the stomach and small bowel, as well as in the joints. Potassium is stored mainly in the muscles, including the heart muscle. Deficiency of either mineral affects their main storage sites, but also affects the acid/alkaline balance, the water balance and the blood and lymph fluid. If there is not enough sodium in the blood and lymph, calcium can come out of solution and deposit within the joints, causing the joint pain we so commonly attribute solely to aging to actually have manifested from mineral deficiencies.

The bio-organic minerals available in dehydrated goat-milk whey aid in correcting many problems associated with aging, as well as with generalized sodium and potassium deficiencies. Likewise, digestive system problems, perhaps due to inadequate diet, have been reported to be dramatically improved or corrected, along with the life-altering challenges associated with stiff, swollen and painful joints when bio-organic minerals are added as a regular supplement. Excess acidity (pH), is neutralized by organic sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium—all of which are present in dehydrated goat-milk whey.

Supplementation with Mt. Capra goat-milk mineral whey as part of a balanced diet has shown to be beneficial in all of the following health and age-related incidents, but not limited to:

  • Mineral and trace element replacement, vital to pregnant and breast-feeding mothers (to replace minerals depleted through pregnancy and breast-feeding), children, active adults and seniors.
  • Correction of stomach acidity and sensitive digestive tracts.
  • Benefiting joint pain disorders, including arthritis and fibromyalgia
  • Immune system enhancement
  • Overcoming lethargy, fatigue, brain fog and depression associated with nutrient deficiency As we baby boomers age, it is important to remember we are not our parents’ or grandparents’ generation—being 60 years of age is now the youth of old age. Today we have more health information available than ever before, along with the unlimited opportunity to educate ourselves in non-drug methods of maintaining health and adding life to our years, naturally.
