Trace   Mineral   Benefits

The best way, perhaps, to indicate the benefits resulting from regular ingestion of certain trace minerals is to set forth their interactions with one another, and with certain vitamins and enzymes.

Arsenic

Image of boronBoron
Promotes normal growth. Controls over excretion of calcium and magnesium. Maintains proper levels of steroid hormones.


Cadmium and Mercury

Image of calciumCalcium and Iron
Can decrease absorption of Lead and prevent toxicity. Calcium combines with Phosphorous to promote solid bone formation.



Chlorine(ide)

Image of chromiumChromium
Regularizes glucose metabolism.


Cobalt

Image of copperCopper
May increase toxicity of Cadmium. Copper helps prevent anemia, poor growth, poor iron transport and damage to cells from free radicals.



Fluorine(ide)

Prevents goiter and cretinism.


Iron

Image of leadLead
Promotes normal growth and reproductive capabilities in animals.


Lithium

Image of magnesiumMagnesium
Promotes healthy bone structure and proper ATP utilization.


Manganese

Image of molybdenumMolybdenum
Promotes normal growth and reproductive capability. Increases life expectancy and food intake. Along with Vitamin C and Zinc, suppresses Copper absorption.


Nickel

Image of phosphorusPhosphorus
Forestalls bone loss and reinforces appetite and strength.


Potassium
Image of potassiumModerates heartbeat, counteracts fatigue, muscle cramps, and constipation. One of main Electrolytes responsible for regulating and distributing fluids amongst the different body compartments.

Image of seleniumSelenium
Can protect against Mercury poisoning. Mitigates against muscle pain, weakness, and heart disease (Keshan’s disease).


Silicon

Image of sodiumSodium
Counteracts muscle cramps. One of main Electrolytes responsible for regulating and distributing fluids amongst the different body compartments.


Sulphur

Image of tinTin
Promotes normal growth and reproductive capabilities in animals.

Vanadium
Image of vanadiumPromotes normal growth and reproductive capabilities in animals.

Image of zincZinc
Prevents damage due to high levels of Cadmium. Active against mental retardation, changes in taste, delayed sexuality, skin change, hair loss, and skeletal abnormalities. Along with Molybdenum and Vitamin C, suppresses Copper absorption.
