Trace Minerals Research Childrens Mineral/Vitamin Suppliments Review and a Giveaway!

We all know that children need adequate nutrition to grow properly.  But the standard American diet is frankly horrible.  Plus children usually shy away from veggies that will provide them with more nutrition.  Add into that most of your children's supplements do not contain minerals or if they do not only are the poorly absorbed kind they also aren'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 children's bodies but even more importantly for their 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 soil 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 two of their children's supplements  for review.  First I tried the ConcenTrace® Kid's Trace Mineral Drops. ConcenTrace® Kid’s Trace Mineral Drops is an all natural mineral concentrate that has been specifically formulated for the nutritional needs of children.  ConcenTrace® is a unique mineral complex that contains is a full spectrum of over 72 naturally occurring ionic trace minerals from the Great Salt Lake. Most of these minerals are in ultra trace amounts, but are still necessary for optimum health during your child’s developmental years.†

 I add these drops to my children's juice and they don't even notice!  I love that I can do something so simple for my children's health. As a side note I checked the children's vitamin isle at my local store and NOT ONE of the chewables contained minerals!

Next I tried out the Kids Liquid Multi. Here is what the company has to say about it.

Kid’s Multi is a great tasting dietary supplement formulated especially for kids to provide them the key nutrients they need to promote and maintain optimum health.† Kid’s Multi is formulated with vitamins, minerals and other important nutrients in combination with full-spectrum, body-balanced trace minerals from ConcenTrace® for heightened absorption and assimilation.†

The benefit of the liquid is that it is more absorbable to the body and you can add it to things like juice or smoothies if you have a child that cant or wont take a chewable vitamin.  There were two things I noticed about it.  First off the color is a very bright yellow, which my kids didn't like.  I think a berry color would have gone over better.  And second my kids disliked the taste.  I tried it and its a nice citrus flavor and not horrible so I think my kids are just weird.  However I mixed it into some juice for snack and they never knew!  Both these products are very affordable at under $15.00 each.

You can see them HERE at Vitacost which has great prices. 

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!
