Minerals - the First Step to Well-being
Sunday, January 1st 2006
New Zealand is notoriously low in many minerals due to glaciations and volcanic activity. Our farmers have known this for years and have regularly supplemented their animals with minerals. A capsule has been developed for sheep combining trace element supplements to combat facial eczema. What does it contain? Selenium, Cobalt and Zinc! So despite dieticians telling us "it is all in our food", it would appear that the farmers know better. Without an adequate supply of minerals, vitamins are not able to be absorbed. So it is essential that the mineral balance in the body is adequate before taking vitamins.
Many people are looking for a mineral tablet that is high in Calcium and Magnesium. Radiance Mineral-Power is a comprehensive formula that provides in each tablet 500mg of calcium and 250mg of Magnesium. Also included are Zinc, Iron, Copper, Potassium, Manganese, Selenium, Chromium, Molybdenum, Vanadium, Iodine (Kelp), Glutamic Acid HCL, Vitamin D and Boron.
Here is what some of the ingredients in Radiance Mineral-Power help the body achieve:
Calcium for growth, bones, teeth, clotting of blood, nerve and muscle response, proper heart action; Magnesium maintains the nervous system, prevents cramping and muscle spasms; Potassium maintains fluid and mineral balance, helps nerves and muscles, essential for heart function; Chromium works with insulin to help keep blood sugar levels steady; Copper helps red blood cells utilise iron; Manganese is required for normal nervous system functions, bone growth reproduction and cell function; Iron is essential in the formation of haemoglobin and red blood cells, bone formation, healing, skin and hair pigmentation and protein metabolism; Selenium is an antioxidant and helps maintain healthy muscles and red blood cells; Zinc helps repair wounds, immune system function, prostate function and reproductive organ functioning. All these are minerals, which are critical for the well-being of the body.
