Mineral Supplementation is Essential
If your patients live in a pristine environment with clean air, rich organic soil, pure spring water, and have a healthy lifestyle – as well as no problems with digestion and absorption – you probably won’t suggest they take a mineral supplement. But in the world that most of us live in, the air is polluted, the soil has been diluted of nutrients due to over-farming, pristine drinking water is rare, and compromised digestion is the norm – add to this overcooked foods, poor dietary choices, chronic stress, and the habitual use of substances that destroy minerals, such as cigarettes, sodas, and alcohol – it is no wonder that we need support in the form of an intelligently designed mineral supplement.
Highly Absorbable Mineral Formula
Support Minerals is formulated to deliver minerals to their target cells by making use of co-factors required in the absorption and assimilation process. The betaine hydrochloric acid and glutamic acid in the formula help with acidification and promote absorption by assisting in the transfer across the cell membrane. The co-factors folic acid, biotin, and vitamins A and D3 support the uptake of the essential minerals. Folic acid and biotin maintain healthy cell function and assist in the production of enzymes. Vitamins A and D3 are included in Support Minerals for their respective roles in bone growth and calcium absorption.
Krebs Cycle Chelation for Bioavailability
The macro and trace minerals in the formula are carefully balanced to prevent conflicts in assimilation. Towards this goal the product also uses Krebs cycle intermediates. The Krebs cycle intermediates (see diagram below) in Support Minerals are a unique chain of five organic acids: citrate, fumarate, malate, succinate, and glutarate. Minerals chelated to these intermediates are readily absorbed and utilized by the body. Krebs cycle intermediates can bind two or three mineral molecules for every one of their own molecules and are easily ionized. This enhances the bioavailability of the minerals to which they are chelated by increasing the amount of ionized minerals in the intestinal tract.
