Our Liquid Trace Mineral Supplement consists of 100 % of the U.S.A. Recommended Daily Allowance (USRDA) of essential trace minerals.
Trace minerals are so important that the lack of trace minerals quite possibly is the primary cause of disease within Western culture today. **
Unfortunately, it is difficult to obtain the necessary minerals from food because of mineral-deficient soils that are common throughout the world today. It only takes 10 years of intensive farming to exhaust the minerals in any tract of land. The depletion of necessary nutrients by cooking and processing living foods adds to the difficulty in obtaining vital minerals and vitamins from our food. **
Individually, trace minerals have been found to be beneficial for a number of health needs, such as: **
Zinc helps wounds heal, and are critical to the production of white blood cells that regulate the immune system. Toxins are removed from the liver through chemical reactions with zinc. Zinc also helps transport vitamin A from the liver to the skin. Low zinc levels can lead to birth complications, learning disabilities, damaged skin, slow healing of wounds, depressed appetite, and joint problems.**
Iodine is required to regulate the thyroid gland. Iodine deficiencies can lead to decreased metabolism, fatigue, and in some cases cancer. It also helps convert beta carotene to vitamin A. **
Selenium is one of the most important antioxidants in the body, it helps vitamin E protect cells and body tissues by destroying free radicals. Selenium supports the immune system and neutralizes invading toxins. Low levels of selenium can lead to arthritis, heart disease, and cancers. **
Copper's many functions include being part of hundreds of proteins and enzymes, developing red blood cells, strengthening blood vessels and bones, and enhancing fertility. It may even fight cancer as an antioxidant. Deficiencies result in anemia, nervous disorders, high cholesterol, heart conditions, and skeletal damage. **
Manganese does a little bit of everything, from building bones to fighting cancer cells as an antioxidant. It also helps blood clot. Low amounts of manganese can create hypertension, nervous disorders, joint problems, and heart conditions. **
Chromium regulates the breakdown of sugar and carbohydrates in the body and insulin production. It is required for producing cholesterol and fat and smoothing out blood sugar levels. Deficiencies may lead to diabetic symptoms. **
Molybdenum metabolizes nitrogen. It is also built into certain enzymes and amino acids and is critical for a healthy nervous system. It strengthens tooth enamel and fights decay. Nervous disorders and cancer are some of the results of a molybdenum deficiency. **
Amino Acids are fundamental constituents of all proteins. Some amino acids can be synthesized by the body, however the essential amino acids must be obtained from protein in the diet.
