A Natural Multi Mineral Supplement for Musculoskeletal Health and Optimal Overall Health.
Reacted Multi Min is a combination of essential minerals in a reacted, chelated form for maximum absorption and bioavailability. The particle sizes of each mineral have been broken down into the smallest elemental proportions available and are small enough to be effectively absorbed through the intestinal wall as oppose to other generic, industry grade mineral supplements whose large particles greatly impair absorption capabilities. The micronutrients contained in our natural mineral supplement include: natural chelated Calcium, natural chelated Magnesium, natural chelated Zinc, natural chelated Selenium, natural chelated Copper, natural chelated Manganese, natural chelated Chromium, natural chelated Molybdenum, natural chelated Potassium, natural chelated Vanadium and natural chelated Boron.
•Natural Chelated Calcium for Bone Health.
Calcium is one of the most abundant minerals in the body. Calcium is needed for proper function of many vital metabolic reactions in the body. The majority of calcium in the body is contained in the bones and teeth. Bones undergo constant restructuring throughout your entire life. If this natural process is inadequate, or impaired due to a possible lack of calcium, bones can become osteoporotic. Calcium plays an important role in bone health as well as cardiovascular health. However, an excess of calcium can lead to kidney stones that contain calcium oxalate. Higher calcium intake is associated with lower body weight.
How Different Substances Effect Calcium Levels in the Body.
Anti-nutrients such as caffeine stimulate the excretion of calcium out of the body. Alcohol also decreases calcium absorption. The consumption of carbonated beverages with a high content of phosphate is associated with reduced bone mass and increased risk for bone fracture. A diet high in alkaline fruits and vegetables reduces calcium loss from the body.
Individuals who are at an increased risk for calcium deficiency are: postmenopausal women, post andropause men, people with lactose intolerance as well as some vegans. Calcium supplements can interfere with absorption of some medications such as: digoxin, tetracycline, levothyroxin, biphosphonates, phenytoin and therefore should be taken separately.
The Best form of Natural Calcium, Chelated Calcium Glycinate.
Calcium carbonate is the most common form of calcium used in supplements, it is also inexpensive, however calcium carbonate is not absorbed well by the body and if taken with other supplements can halter their absorption. The calcium used in our Natural Multi Mineral Supplement is in the form of chelated calcium glycinate. Chelated calcium glycinate has superior bioavailability and absorption.
•Natural Chelated Magnesium for Cardiovascular Health.
Magnesium is necessary for more then 300 metabolic reactions in the body. Magnesium is important for proper metabolism function. Magnesium also assists in carbohydrate metabolism and utilization of carbohydrates for energy, therefore a magnesium deficiency increases the risk for metabolic syndrome X and diabetes. Hypomagnesemia (a condition in which a disruption of electrolytes occurs with unusually low levels of magnesium in the bloodstream) is associated with increased insulin resistance.
The Role of Natural Chelated Magnesium in Cardiovascular Health.
Magnesium is necessary for proper mitochondrial function and energy production. Magnesium plays a significant role in cardiovascular health as well as in the regulation of blood pressure and is essential for proper contractions of the heart muscle. Low magnesium levels can cause cardiac arrhythmia and increase the risk for coronary artery disease. Magnesium is needed for proper skeletal muscle functions, a deficiency of magnesium can lead to muscle cramps and restless legs syndrome.
Magnesium is an essential mineral needed for optimal bone calcification. Adequate levels of magnesium positively affect cranial blood vessels and alleviate migraines. Magnesium promotes relaxation in stressful situations and helps improve mood.
Substances that Cause Magnesium Deficiency.
Certain medications such as antibiotics, diuretics and anti-cancer drugs can cause a magnesium deficiency. People with intestinal disorders are at increased risk for developing a magnesium deficiency. Older individuals very often have low magnesium levels. Magnesium oxide, magnesium sulfate or magnesium carbonate are poorly absorbed by the body. For best bioavailability reacted magnesium chelate is recommended and included in our Natural Multi Mineral Supplement.
•Natural Chelated Zinc for Optimal Immune Health.
Zinc is an essential mineral necessary for correct functioning of many metabolic pathways in the body. Zinc regulates carbohydrate metabolism. Zinc also plays an important role in regulating immune system function as well as helping fight off infections. Zinc is essential for mens reproductive health, healthy sperm production and healthy prostate gland function. Zinc is needed for the production of collagen and connective tissue formation.
The Importance of Zinc on Human Health.
A zinc deficiency can cause impaired immune system function, delayed wound healing, hair loss and abnormal taste. In men, a zinc deficiency can create hypogonadism (a decrease of testosterone) and poor sperm maturation. People who are at risk for developing zinc deficiency are those with gastrointestinal disorders, vegetarians, pregnant and lactating women, older people, people with sickle cell anemia, and alcoholics. Zinc and antibiotics should be given at least 2 hours apart since they interfere with each others absorption. Our Natural Multi Mineral Supplement contains zinc in the form of TRAACS® zinc glycinate chelate for optimal absorption.
•Natural Chelated Selenium for Optimal Health.
Selenium is an important micronutrient with strong anti-oxidant properties. Individuals with compromised intestinal function as those with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis may develop selenium deficiency due to selenium mal-absorption.
The Role of Selenium in Immune System Health.
Selenium supports proper immune system function and natural defense mechanisms of the body. Selenium is a cofactor for thyroid hormones production and selenium deficiency may worsen iodine deficiency. Normal selenium levels are necessary to protect against goiter (enlarged thyroid). Selenium protects against mercury toxicity.
The Effect of Selenium on Inflammatory Diseases.
Due to its anti-oxidant action, selenium has positive influence on inflammatory diseases such as arthritis. Selenium prevents lipid oxidation and therefore protects against arteriosclerosis. According to the National Institute of Health, observational studies suggest that adequate levels of selenium in the body are associated with lower incidence of cancer.
•Natural Chelated Copper for Neurological Health and Brain Health.
Copper is an essential micronutrient needed for numerous enzymatic reactions in the body. Copper is the key mineral in the production of collagen and elastin. Copper is necessary for the production of hemoglobin. Copper plays an important role in the metabolism of protein. Copper is involved in RNA synthesis. Copper is used in myelin sheaths and phospholipids formation, therefore important for neurological health. Our Natural Multi Mineral Supplement contains copper in the form of TRAACS® copper glycinate chelate for maximum effectiveness.
•Natural Chelated Manganese for Health.
Manganese plays an important role in enzymatic reactions needed for proper utilization of vitamin C, biotin and thiamine. Manganese is necessary for fatty acids and cholesterol synthesis. Manganese is required for superoxide dismutase (a powerful antioxidant enzyme) synthesis. Manganese is needed for normal function of connective tissues and skeletal tissues. Manganese facilitates detoxification of ammonia in the body. Our Natural Multi Mineral Supplement contains manganese in the form of TRAACS® manganese glycinate chelate for optimal bioavailability.
•Natural Chelated Chromium for Lipid and Glucose Metabolism.
Chromium is an essential mineral that is needed for the proper metabolism of fat, glucose support and activation of enzyme secretion. Chromium also supports healthy carbohydrate and lipid utilization. The human body requires only trace amounts of chromium. Chromium plays an important role in insulin release regulation. Chromium is needed for carbohydrates metabolism, the metabolism of fats and protein metabolism. Absorption of chromium from the intestinal tract is low, but can be enhanced by vitamin C and B vitamins, especially niacin. A diet high in simple sugars can increase the excretion of chromium in the urine. Stress, intensive physical exercise or infections also can accelerate loss of chromium from the body.
The Natural Chelated Chromium We Use in Our Multi Mineral Supplement.
Our Natural Multi Mineral Supplement uses ChromeMate® brand niacin bound Chromium for maximum efficacy and bioavailability. A study conducted at Georgetown University on the use of ChromeMate Chromium found that when combined with proper diet and exercise, ChromeMate supports lean body composition in overweight women. ChromeMate Chromium has shown potential to promote Glucose Tolerance Factor (GTF). By promoting Glucose Tolerance Factor (GTF) ChromeMate Chromium plays a role in maintaining healthy glucose metabolism and supporting proper body composition.
•Natural Chelated Molybdenum for Proper Enzyme Secretion.
Molybdenum is a trace mineral, needed only in small amounts by the body. Molybdenum plays a role in the secretion of enzymes important for protein synthesis and growth. However high intake of molybdenum can interfere with copper absorption. A deficiency of molybdenum can increase risk for esophageal cancer. Therefore an adequately balanced amount of molybdenum is needed for the support of optimal health. Our Natural Multi Mineral Supplement contains molybdenum as TRAACS® molybdenum glycinate chelate for maximum effectiveness.
•Natural Chelated Potassium for Cardiovascular Health.
Potassium a mineral that is essential for many metabolic and enzymatic reactions in the body. Potassium is very important for cardiovascular health. Potassium is also necessary for preserving an alkaline-acid balance in the body. Potassium is important for the transmission of nerve impulses and is also needed for both, proper smooth muscle function as well as proper skeletal muscle function. Potassium works together with sodium to maintain a healthy hydration balance (water balance) in the body. In addition, potassium is required for proper heart muscle contractions and heart rhythm. Our Natural Multi Mineral Supplement contains potassium in the form of potassium glycinate complex for maximum absorption.
•Natural Vanadium for Healthy Insulin and Sugar Metabolism.
Vanadium is a trace mineral that plays an essential role in sugar metabolism and insulin sensitivity. Vanadium in the form of vanadyl sulfate helps to increase glycogen storage in the muscles and protein synthesis. Our Natural Multi Mineral Supplement contains vanadium as vanadyl sulfate hydrate for maximum effectiveness.
•Natural Boron for Hormonal Health and Bone Health.
Boron is necessary for the proper metabolism of calcium, phosphorus and magnesium. Boron is important for steroid hormones synthesis such as the synthesis of estrogen. Boron also plays a role in vitamin D synthesis. Boron helps the body to effectively utilize many vitamins, minerals and hormones. Boron is essential for ensuring proper structure of the bone matrix and connective tissue health. Our Natural Multi Mineral Supplement contains boron in the form of Proteinate for efficient assimilation.
Our Reacted/Chelated Mineral Products Provide a Complete Spectrum of Fully Bioavailable Minerals.
Minerals play an important role in many different systems and structures throughout our body. Often times we may need higher amounts of a specific mineral to provide support for a particular health concern. Our line of fully reacted minerals provides a comprehensive assortment of minerals to support your unique, individual needs.
We have partnered with Albion, one of the United States foremost manufacturers of chelated minerals. Albions patented chelation technology stabilizes the minerals while creating some of the smallest absorbable minerals available. This is important because larger minerals cannot pass through the intestinal wall as well and therefore are not as well absorbed by our bodies.
