Trace Minerals Research Review and a Giveaway!

A few years ago I went through a horrible health crises.  Long story short it was due to mineral deficiency!  My symptoms?  Extreme anxiety, heart palpitations, nausea, vomiting, extreme insomnia.

All these symptoms are associated with mineral deficiency, especially magnesium deficiency.  As soon as I started taking magnesium (this was not suggested by my doctor) the heart palpitations stopped and never came back.  After being on magnesium for a week the panic and anxiety had gone along with the nausea (I lost 30 lbs. in one month).  I was probably deficient in other minerals but magnesium is so important to our bodies function that it was amazing at the difference.  Now I am very careful with my diet and taking extra minerals in a supplement.  Most of your supplements do not contain minerals or if they do not only are the poorly absorbed kind they also arn't enough for daily needs!  Also our diets are stripped of important minerals.  Not just from highly processed foods, but also from our vegetables and grains. 

Traditionally, eating fresh grains, fruits, and vegetables grown in nutrient-rich soil has been the primary supply for a full spectrum of ionic minerals.

Unfortunately in today’s world, naturally occurring, nutrient-rich soil is becoming increasingly rare. Eons of vegetation growth and aggressive modern farming techniques have brought many of the earth’s minerals to the surface where they have been washed away.

Synthesized fertilizers are routinely applied to farms and fields where minerals have been depleted. But man-made fertilizers provide only enough mineral substance to support basic plant life. Numerous trace minerals essential to human life don’t get replenished.

I think taking a high quality mineral supplement is essential not only the proper function of our bodies but even more importantly for our brain and nervous systems.

This was where Trace Minerals Research came in.  They are a company that is devoted to creating the highest quality mineral supplements, vitamins, joint health products, and much more!

Our modern diets, even when we eat super healthy, are not enough to supply our daily needs due to our farm soils depletion in essential minerals.  Taking a high quality multi vitamin that also contains adequate amounts of minerals is essential!  Not all supplements are created equal.  Many use the cheapest ingredients possible that are hard for our bodies to absorb.  So you end up peeing out most of the supplement!

That is why I was so excited to try Trace Minerals Research's products! Trace Minerals Research  has been in business for over 35 years and has won several industry awards.  They have an amazing guarantee that if you don't "feel the difference" from their products you get your money back! 
Our “Feel the Difference” Guarantee

Nutritional supplements should deliver noticeable results. Our commitment to noticeable results is the foundation of the TMR philosophy. Not a single bottle of product leaves our manufacturing facility that’s not backed up by our “Feel the Difference or Your Money Back” guarantee.

They sent me several items for review.  First I tried the Complete Children's Chewable.  It contains essential vitamins and more importantly minerals for development as well as lutene and lycopene.  They are low sugar and vegetarian.  My three children said they tasted "spicy"  but still take them every night before bed .  I have noticed a difference in my children's health since starting them on these vitamins.  They are slightly more expensive than the cheapest Wal-Mart vitamins for children at $13.49, but when you consider they are not only including minerals that many children's chewables do not contain, but also using higher quality ingredients that are more easily absorbed into your child's body, they are well worth the few extra dollars.

Next I tried the Complete Foods Multi, which is a multi-vitamin mineral for adults.   
  • Packed with over 80 living foods
  • Multi-mineral
  • Multivitamin
  • 72 ionic trace minerals from ConcenTrace®
  • Gluten Free
  • Vegetarian
My husband, myself, and our teenage daughter started taking these.  I noticed right away a difference in my daughter's and my own health.  Her moods also seemed to level out more (certain minerals control how we react to stress).  They didn't upset my stomach or make me feel bad which is a plus!  These are especially great for my husband who does a very physically demanding job and is under allot of stress.  Not only that but he tends not to eat as healthy as he should.  It has helped him with moods, and also feel better health wise.

Last I tried their ConcenTrace® Trace Mineral Drops.  These are America’s #1 selling trace mineral supplement!  They are as follows
  • Non-GMO Project Verified
  • Ionic
  • Soluble
  • From Utah's inland sea, the Great Salt Lake
  • Over 72 trace minerals
  • cGMP Certified
  • Kosher/Halal Certified
  • GRAS-Affirmed
  • Food Grade
  • Solar Evaporated
  • All Natural
  • Gluten Free
  • Vegan

These are great if you feel you have a deficiency (as almost all Americans do) in minerals.  They are readily absorbable and easy to mix into a drink or smoothy.  They also work for children who refuse to eat much veggies and fruits because you can slip them into a drink without the child being aware.  Just make sure to do the correct dosage!

I have been using these drops because I know that for years I was deficient in minerals.  It took my health breaking down for me to become aware of it, and as soon as I started taking a mineral supplement my health magically got better!

I would recommend Trace Minerals Research to anyone looking for high quality, affordable supplements that come from a company that is dedicated to improving peoples health!
