The importance of magnesium and trace minerals (those needed in small quantities) is often overlooked. These vital elements are required for many functions. Magnesium is involved in virtually every reaction within every cell. It is critical in heart function, nerve conduction, muscle contraction and water balance. Magnesium is the most abundant mineral found within cells. It is vital for energy delivery. Modern farming and food processing reduce the magnesium available.
Symptoms of magnesium deficiency include nervous irritability, fatigue, muscle spasms, behavior changes, seizures, abnormal heartbeat and blood clots. Physical and emotional stress increase the need for minerals. Supplementation is even more important when these situations arise.
Chloride, a major blood ion, is required for stomach acid formation and water balance. Chromium is involved in blood sugar control. Lithium is important for normal brain function. The roles of gold, boron, germanium, chromium, manganese are being investigated.
The form in which minerals are ingested can greatly affect the body's ability to absorb and use them. Liquid, ionic forms are rapidly absorbed through the digestive tract.
Trace AniMinerals is a concentrated solution of naturally occurring trace minerals, the "spark plugs" of life. The minerals are rapidly absorbed and utilized by cells in virtually every process.
