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 suppleme
Support Minerals – The Formula
Suggested use: Three tablets 15 minutes near bedtime
Three Capsules of Support Minerals Contain:
Vitamin A - 100 IU
- Vitamin A is involved in the formation and maintenance of healthy skin, hair, and mucous membranes. Vitamin A helps us to see in dim light and is necessary for proper bone growth, tooth development, and reproduction. REF 1, 2
Vitamin D3 - 50 IU
- The research available in the past few years on the clinical significance of vitamin D is substantial. The role of vitamin D in preventing cancers, osteoporosis, and general ill health is clearly established. Importantly, Support Minerals includes 50 IUs of vitamin D3 to assist in the absorption of calcium - increasing calcium absorption by as much as 80 percent. A dietary deficiency of vitamin D inhibits the production of the protein that binds calcium in the intestines, so that calcium cannot be absorbed, even if there is adequate intake. REF 3, 4, 5, 6
Folic Acid - 200 mcg
- Folic acid is involved in important metabolic processes. It is essential for the normal growth and maintenance of all cells because it acts as a coenzyme for healthy DNA and RNA synthesis. It is vital for normal cell division and protein synthesis (both key to efficient bone turnover) and is involved in the production of neurotransmitters such as serotonin, which regulate mood, sleep and appetite. The folic acid in Support Minerals supports assimilation of the formula's minerals. REF 7, 8
Biotin - 300 mcg
- When glucose goes intracellular, it must be phosphorylated in order to be burned, and biotin is necessary for phosphorylation. Biotin is extremely important for protection from glycemic dysregulation. It not only helps with blood sugar control as well as the synthesis and uptake of minerals, but also supports liver detoxification pathways - enabling the detoxification of sulfates in the liver, amino acid synthesis, and glucose control. REF 9, 10, 11, 12
Calcium (from Calcium Krebs*) - 400 mg
- Calcium is necessary for the development and health of bone, maintaining a regular heartbeat, and the transmission of nerve impulses. It helps with lowering cholesterol, muscular growth, providing energy, breaking down fats, maintaining proper cell membrane permeability, and skin health. The calcium in Support Minerals is balanced with the formula's magnesium at a 2:1 ratio and bound to Krebs cycle intermediates. Over 95% of the Krebs cycle intermediates are used to produce cellular energy with the remainder being excreted in the urine. The intermediates are easily ionized and have been shown to increase the absorption of not only calcium, but other minerals as well. REF 13, 14, 15
Iodine (from Potassium Iodine) - 100 mcg
- Iodine is an essential element that enables the thyroid gland to produce thyroid hormones. Studies have demonstrated that the major consequence of even moderate iodine deficiency is an extraordinarily high occurrence of hyperthyroidism in the elderly, especially women. Severe iodine deficiency can impede brain development. REF 16, 17
Magnesium (from Magnesium Krebs*) - 200 mg
- Magnesium assists the absorption of calcium and potassium. The metabolism of carbohydrates and fats to produce energy requires numerous magnesium-dependent chemical reactions. Magnesium is required by the adenosine triphosphate (ATP) synthesizing protein in mitochondria. Magnesium is required for the active transport of ions like potassium and calcium across cell membranes. Through its role in ion transport systems, magnesium affects the conduction of nerve impulses, muscle contractions, and normal heart rhythm. Magnesium is involved in building bones, manufacturing proteins, releasing energy from muscle storage, and regulating body temperature. REF 18, 19
Zinc (from Zinc Krebs*) - 10 mg
- Zinc is vital to many biological functions such as immune resistance, wound healing, digestion, reproduction, physical growth, diabetes control, taste and smell. The main biochemical processes in which zinc has been found to be necessary include enzyme activity, carbohydrate metabolism and protein synthesis. More than 300 enzymes in the human body require zinc for proper functioning. REF20
Selenium (from Selenium Krebs*) - 20 mcg
- Selenium helps to build white blood cells, enhancing the body's ability to fight illness and infection. It also helps repair cells damaged by oxidative stress and protects cell membranes. Selenium assists in the synthesis of protein in growth and development and also acts as an anti-inflammatory agent in the treatments of arthritis and other autoimmune diseases. Selenium inhibits prostaglandins, which cause inflammatory reactions in the body. REF 21
Copper (from Copper Krebs*) - 1 mg
- Copper helps the body to utilize iron. It is also important for nerve function, bone growth, and glycemic regulation. Approximately 50 different enzymes need copper to function properly. Copper is an essential nutrient that plays a role in the production of hemoglobin, myelin, collagen, and melanin. Copper is also an essential component of the dark pigment, melanin, which colors skin, hair, and eyes. REF 21
Manganese (from Manganese Krebs*) - 20 mg
- Manganese is an essential trace mineral that is required to manufacture proteins and fat. It supports the immune system, blood sugar regulation, and is involved in the production of cellular energy, reproduction and bone growth. Manganese activates the enzymes responsible for DNA and RNA production. It also aids in the formation of connective tissue, bones, blood-clotting factors, and sex hormones and plays a role in fat and carbohydrate metabolism, and calcium absorption. REF 22
Chromium GTF (from Chromium Polynicotinate) - 100 mcg
- Chromium plays a role in the metabolism of glucose, and is necessary for energy production. Since this mineral assists in the production of insulin, it helps to stabilize blood sugar levels and can be beneficial both for people with hypoglycemia and diabetes. It is also crucial to the synthesis of cholesterol, fats, and proteins. Chromium Polynicotinate is more effective than any other type of chromium, as it binds the elemental chromium to niacin. This provides a biologically active form of chromium, which is more absorbable in the body. Chromium polynicotinate consists of pure niacin-bound chromium, identified by researchers as the active component of true GTF (Glucose Tolerance Factor). GTF is responsible for binding insulin to cell membrane receptor sites. REF23, 24
Molybdenum (from Molybdenum Krebs*) - 50 mcg
- Molybdenum is an essential trace mineral needed for the proper function of certain enzyme-dependent processes, including the metabolism of iron. When the iron stored in the liver is freed by the molybdenum-dependent enzymes, it then can carry oxygen to body cells and tissue. Molybdenum works with the enzyme systems to help eliminate toxic nitrogen waste by turning it into uric acid. Molybdenum aids in carbohydrate metabolism, increases libido, and induces sleep. REF 25
Potassium (from Potassium Krebs*) - 99 mcg
- Potassium works with sodium to maintain the body's water balance. Potassium and sodium are the two cations mainly responsible for the osmotic pressures of intracellular and extracellular fluid. It regulates water and acid-base balance in the blood and tissues. Potassium is also important for nerve impulse transmission as well as releasing energy from protein, fat, and carbohydrates during metabolism. REF 26, 27
Silicon - 2 mg
- Silicon is required for integrity of skin, ligaments, tendons and bone. It is also required for the proper functioning of the enzyme prolyhydroxylase which is responsible for the formation of collagen in bone and elastin, cartilage and other connective tissues. Silicon may also be important in bone calcification. REF 28
Vanadium (from Vanadium Krebs*) - 50 mcg
- Vanadium acts as a co-factor for enzymes involved in blood sugar metabolism, lipid and cholesterol metabolism, bone and tooth development, fertility, thyroid function, hormone production and neurotransmitter metabolism. REF 29
Boron (from Boron citrate) - 50 mcg
- Boron is essential for healthy bone and joint function, due to its effects on the balance and absorption of calcium, magnesium and phosphorus. It affects cell membranes and how signals are transmitted across these membranes. Boron affects the metabolism of steroid hormones and may also play a role in converting vitamin D to its more active form, thus increasing calcium uptake and deposition into bone. Studies suggest that boron works with magnesium to support healthy thyroid function. REF 30
Betaine (from 50 mg of Betaine HCl) - 38 mg
- Betaine works in tandem with glutamic acid to increase the concentration of acids in the stomach, thus enabling the ideal pH for absorption of Support Minerals' other components. Betaine plays an important role in the health of the cardiovascular system. Studies suggest that betaine helps to reduce potentially toxic levels of homocysteine, a naturally occurring amino acid that can harm blood vessels, contributing to the development of heart disease. REF 31
Glutamic Acid (from 50 mg of Glutamic Acid HCl) - 40 mg
- Glutamic acid is a major excitatory neurotransmitter in the brain and spinal cord and is a precursor to GABA. It metabolizes sugar and fats and aids in the transportation of potassium across the blood-brain barrier. The brain uses glutamic acid as fuel. Like betaine, glutamic acid represents a supplemental form of gastric acid. It works in tandem with Betaine to increase the concentration of acids in the stomach, thus enabling the ideal pH for absorption of minerals. The betaine and glutamic acid in Support Minerals combine to form a powerful acid stabilizer with many benefits. REF 32, 33, 34
