The 90 Essential Nutrients -What They Are & Why You Need Them
Did you know that only 8-12% of the typical nutritional supplements available today are actually absorbed by your body? That means that approximately 90% of typical supplements are flushed down the drain.
Youngevity’s supplements are 90-98% absorbable! Why is there such a difference? The secret is our exclusive source of plant-derived minerals that dramatically increase bioavailability (absorbability).
We combine superior raw materials with state-of-the-art processing and production, so it’s no wonder that Youngevity products get you results.

Plant Derived Minerals and Bioavailability
Our Plant Derived Minerals™ are extracted from humic shale, which is a layer of earth formed from ancient, mineral-laden plants. Humic shale is superior to other commonly-used supplement sources such as bentonite (ground up clay) or dried sea beds (ground up rocks).
As in plants, Plant Derived Minerals™ have a natural negative electrical charge that has two important benefits. First, it may enhance the transport and bioavailability of other nutrients, and second, it may support the body’s natural detoxification of toxins and heavy metals.
“99% of American people are deficient in minerals, and a marked deficiency in any one of the more important minerals actually results in disease.”

Give Your Body the for Under $2 a Day
You must give your body all the raw materials it requires to maintain and rebuild itself. Raw materials are so vital to your health, but can be very hard to find. Centuries of mining, farming, irrigation, and acid rain have eroded life giving minerals from our soil. These mineral-deficient soils are then used to grow and cultivate our food. Because of this, our food is lacking in essential minerals. In fact Dr. Wallach has stated, “One sentence has killed more people than all the wars in American history… You get all the nutrition you need from the four basic food groups.”
All Youngevity products are formulated and designed with that in mind. Our products are packed with the finest plant derived minerals available. There are always imitations vying for your attention but when it comes to your health don’t accept any imitations. There are no quick-fixes, no silver bullets, and no shortcuts.
