Who Needs Trace Mineral Complex II
Your body needs an assortment of minerals to support essential daily functions. These include both macro- and micro-minerals. Macrominerals like calcium and magnesium get a lot of attention. Trace minerals are just as essential for health, even though they’re required in much smaller quantities.*
Trace Minerals Complex II provides 9 essential trace minerals needed for optimal health in well-tolerated and bioavailable forms. This formula is free from iron and copper.*
Trace Minerals Complex II contains your essential trace minerals in their bioavailable forms for optimal absorption and utilization. These include: iodine, selenium, zinc, manganese, chromium, molybdenum, boron, and vanadium. This high-quality trace mineral supplement is free from iron and copper for those who do not need it. Because many people are deficient, potassium is included in this unique formulation.*
Trace minerals are also called trace elements or microminerals. Your body needs these essential minerals in small amounts to maintain proper function. Trace minerals are required for many enzymatic reactions in your body. They support healthy functioning of your immune system, neurotransmitter, hormones, energy production, and metabolism.*
Research indicates that the trace mineral content of foods is declining. This is likely due to commercial farming practices which deplete minerals in the soil where plant foods are grown.
Minerals are difficult for the body to recognize in supplement form. As a result, many trace mineral supplements are not very bioavailable. Trace Minerals Complex II has been formulated with chelated minerals that support optimal absorption and utilization.*
Trace Minerals Complex II supports healthy:*
- Nervous system function
- Hormone production
- Enzyme cofactor activity
- Hair, skin, and nails
- Immune system function
- Cardiovascular function
- Growth, development, and healing
Trace Minerals Complex II by Seeking Health contains your essential daily trace minerals formulated for optimal absorption. Cover your daily trace mineral needs in one simple capsule with Trace Minerals Complex II.*
Why Trace Mineral Complex II Works
Like the macrominerals, trace minerals cannot be manufactured by the human body. They originate in the earth’s soil where they are taken up by plants. We obtain trace minerals by eating plants or animals that have consumed plant foods.
Trace minerals are found in many foods, so you would think they would also be abundant in the body. Unfortunately, many trace minerals are not well-absorbed from foods due to phytates, other anti-nutrients, or low stomach acid levels. In addition, the trace mineral content of many foods is declining because of the nutrient-depleted soils they are grown in. As a result, trace mineral deficiencies are on the rise.
Trace minerals may only be needed in small amounts, but they play a big role in your overall health. They are required as cofactors for many enzymatic processes in the human body. These enzymes keep us alive: your immune system, nerves, hormones, digestion, and nearly every other system in the body require trace minerals to function properly.*
Trace Minerals Complex II by Seeking Health contains 9 essential trace minerals in their bioavailable forms for optimal absorption and utilization:*
Iodine is required for your body to make thyroid hormones, which control your metabolism, growth, and other critical functions.*
Zinc is required for healthy immune system and nervous system function, DNA production, gene expression, neurotransmitter synthesis, and B vitamin absorption. As a cofactor for the SOD enzyme, zinc plays critical antioxidant roles in the body. Zinc is also needed for proper glutathione production.*
Selenium acts as a powerful antioxidant and cofactor for numerous physiological processes. It is essential for proper thyroid function as a key component of selenoenzymes that convert T4 thyroid hormone into the active T3 form. As a cofactor for the GPX enzyme, selenium provides powerful antioxidant support in the body.*
Manganese acts as an important antioxidant as a cofactor for MnSOD, the main antioxidant enzyme in mitochondria. It supports proper metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins, and cholesterol. Manganese is needed to form healthy cartilage and bones. In the brain, manganese is a cofactor for glutamine synthetase, which converts excitatory glutamate into glutamine.*
- Chromium is required for proper insulin function and maintaining normal blood glucose levels as part of the GTF Complex. Chromium may also exert antioxidant effects.*
Molybdenum is a cofactor for the SUOX enzyme, which facilitates sulfur metabolism by breaking down sulfites into less problematic sulfates. It is also a cofactor for the aldehyde oxidase enzyme that helps to metabolize potentially toxic aldehydes into less harmful byproducts.*
Boron is needed for strong and healthy bones and teeth. It may also play roles in reproduction, brain function, insulin metabolism, immunity, and metabolism of calcium, phosphorus, and magnesium.*
Vanadium is important for normal insulin and blood sugar regulation. It also supports healthy bones, skin, and joints.*
Potassium supports optimal fluid balance within cells. It is essential for healthy nerve and muscle function. Although not considered a trace mineral, potassium deficiency is widespread, and normal body functions require having enough. Because many people are deficient, potassium is included in this unique formulation.*
Trace Minerals Complex II is formulated with essential trace minerals in well-tolerated, bioavailable forms. This formula is free from iron for those who do not require iron supplementation.*
Take 1 capsule daily with food or as directed by your healthcare professional.
