Mineral - Yttrium

Yttrium is another one of those minerals that can be associated with an increase of lifespan and life quality.  So let us get the technicalities out of the way and then talk about the actions and role of Yttrium in the human body. Yttrium is used 18,468,491 times in the genetic sequence and follows a UGA sequence with a STOP termination code. It carries a valence of +3 and weighs in at a very light weight of 88.91.  It associates extremely closely with Scandium and that mineral is controlled by the amino acid Proline.  The name for this mineral originates from the town where it was found, (in the modern era) in a town called Yttrium, Sweden.  Yttrium is not found as a stand-alone mineral in nature, it is found primarily in monazite sand and bastn°site ores. It can be and is sometimes found in various other ores. The cost of refined Yttrium is usually under 100 dollars per ounce in the mineral markets. It is a slivery-white in color and is quite stable.  For the most part, itis considered to be only mildly toxic and is very difficult to separate from other minerals in the refining process. The yearly production, worldwide for this mineral is approaching 700 tons per year with close to 10 million tons of known reserves worldwide.  It is found in the soil, rocks and many clays at various levels, from 1 ppm to even 40 ppm.  It is less in plants and animals, as it is processed through the body rather quickly and efficiently.  Water, animals (humans) and plants do not store this mineral as a general rule unless itis in a toxic form and then it usually stores in the liver. So a regular and steady supply is necessary.  

The industrial uses for Yttrium are, for the most part, used to make the red color is television tubes and in microwave filters.  Also, it is used to increase the strength of Magnesium and Aluminum as well as to make cast iron more workable.  It is also used to make various things like glass, lenses, etc., heat and crack resistant.   Yttrium is also used in the superconductors and has superconductive properties as it applies to conducting electricity without a loss of energy.  So here we see that conducting of electricity showing up again and you will see the biological equivalent use later on in the discussion.  Of course in most of the propaganda that I looked at to verify the data presented here all say the following; There are no known biological uses for Yttrium. Sometimes I wonder if this is for real. It surely makes you question the validity of some of these sources of information when they say stuff like this.  Perhaps a creditability issue is arising here with information presented in the western world. When you go elsewhere int he world, some good studies are presented in addition to rational information being discussed.  So here we move on to the biological functions of Yttrium. 

As mentioned earlier we see Yttrium being closely associated with Scandium.  In addition to this mineral, it is closely associated with calcium and aluminum. Scandium is also associated with Vitamin D in its several forms. Yttrium plays an important role in the ability of Scandium to be able to utilize Vitamin D and make it work in the protection of the body from the electromagnetic radiation from the sunlight.  Since no one really takes supplementation, they are told to avoid the sunlight and then by doing the avoidance thing, they subject themselves to selective starvation. Then they have to take other supplementation to counteract the selective starvation situation that they themselves created. I suppose it is another one of those things, "Oh don't fix the problem, it might make you sick". 

In tests run on animals, it was found that Yttrium that was injected into the muscles of these animals, quickly found its way to the intestines and then passed from the body with no ill effects. It was further discovered that these injections produced no ill effects and in essence the only real effect observed was that these animals experienced a 3 fold increase in their lifespan over their control group counterparts. Ummm, interesting.  But here is the counterpart of the Yttrium, as in a Yttrium deficiency. It has been observed that Yttrium plays a major role in the problem of the myelin sheath issue on the nerve endings. There is strong evidence that a Yttrium deficiency contributes to this condition. Which we know that this condition is a contributing factor to the MS disease. I say "contributes" because there are a number of factors that lead up to this issue. But it does play a significant role in the core cause of the disease. To further contribute to this aspect, it is believed that Yttrium deficiency creates a condition of not allowing for the protein synthesis factors to either not take place or be somewhat corrupted and then not functioning as they should. In regards to the 3 fold increase in lifespan that was observed, it is believed that the answer is found in the genetic codon. Since the answer is found in the genetic codon, we will look at that, the first termination code is governed by Hydrogen, the second is governed by Sulfur and the 3rd. one is governed by Yttrium. But first a bit on the 2nd. codon, Sulfur.  Many of the pharmaceutical medicines used today have some sort of sulfur antidote. These antidotes basis of action is to change the termination code of a microbe, which takes place. The Yttrium corrects the action at the 3rd. termination code to a small degree, which leads to the lifespan extension.  But that isn't where it ends, to go further, it then moves on to the idea of Yttrium-based probiotics. Since there is no standard list of probiotics, you likely won't find many references to this aspect, but since most probiotics do use aluminum as their most important mineral, and we know that aluminum will displace yttrium, we can easily see a creation of yttrium deficiency being created. Most of the life forms that we know of have used aluminum in their overall makeup, we know that aluminum can be and is used, but too much and we really have a zero-sum game going on here, so we end up with yttrium deficiencies diseases, like MS, showing their presence. 

Now let's not leave that there. Yttrium is also attracted to a number of other minerals. So it can and will piggyback on these other minerals. But guess what?  Piggybacking is not the only source of this mineral as to how it is used. Another mineral shows up as being able to be substituted for Yttrium in many settings. That mineral.. drum roll... Selenium. Research has shown that Yttrium enhances the absorption and distribution of Selenium.  So in all of this aspect, you still need Yttrium as a base, but Selenium can take over some roles of functioning for the Yttrium and it does. But if you have a deficiency of both, then I guess you have 2 strikes against you. I am purposely avoiding going into Selenium issues here because we will cover that in the lecture on Selenium its self. I only mention these other minerals here because of their relationship to Yttrium and the function of this mineral.  Overall I think you should be able to see the importance of this mineral in the mention of the myelin sheath deal alone. Plus we have the deal of where it fits in the genetic codon, usually at the termination code and its contribution to probiotics and their whole function. 

Essential oil connection.
With this one, we see a clear-cut aspect of the oils connection. First off, since it is so light, it will be about the first component to come over in the process. No question there as well as in any of the other extraction processes as it relates to the oils.  What has been discovered in India is that Tumeric has been shown to contribute to the dietary supply of Yttrium.  So by default, since itis so light in weight, it will be in Tumeric essential oil. Tumeric also has several forms of Boron. Because of this combination, these minerals, in either oil or herbal form, will affect and cross the blood-brain barrier. It is believed that the amino acid, Serine is the cause of the action potential of this to take place. 

Further discussion and the good stuff. 
Now on this, I don't have a lot of good stuff. I have already mentioned the good stuff. I mean how much more good stuff can you get than extending your lifespan, I guess if you want to extend it. In the studies out of India that deal with the Tumeric herb. They have a low rate of Alzheimer's and the discovery about Tumeric was one of the main findings that were arrived at. Then you have the probiotics aspect and there are 2 strains that do not use aluminum in their makeup and design and those are Bifidobacterium bifidum and Bifidobacterium longum.  So we also get a quick drive-by observation of the role of aluminum in relationship to Yttrium.  Interesting but scary stuff.  So here we go along our merry way, doing stuff that should help us be healthier, and live longer and lone and behold, we are short on this mineral and since we are short on this mineral, we have a shining knight come to our rescue and that is Aluminum. Then we have people carping about how aluminum being stored in our brain and thus causing us to have Alzheimer's. Well if we didn't have a shortage of Yttrium then there would be no place for the overload of aluminum causing our brains to "solidify" with aluminum.  Hey, it is just replacing Yttrium, as it is designed in nature to do. But only to a limit because it is based on the idea that we would have the correct Yttrium levels.  What a circus. 

Lest we forget, we must mention food. Sources for Yttrium. First off, fresh food.  This food is necessary as the Yttrium is not really stored in a large amount in the tissues of plants or animals. A constant supply is necessary to maintain levels necessary for proper biological function.  However, we always have that, however, right?  There is strong evidence that Yttrium levels are elevated and thus storage must take place, in stones fruits. The actual stone or pit seems to store Yttrium much better and at a higher volume than any other source. Cherry pits seem to store at the highest levels. But other pits will store a reasonable amount of Yttrium as well. So many of the nuts, if you will that comes from the pits or stones of fruit will help a great deal in getting your Yttrium mineral.  Perhaps even the fixed oils from these stones or pits can be a source of this mineral as well. 

Well, there you have it on Yttrium. Thank you for your time and your interest.
