EXTRA TRACE MINERALS

Boron (3.25 mg):

A mineral that is currently considered non-essential, but it has a lot of research to argue it should be essential. It might have beneficial effects on brain function, cholesterol levels, hormone levels, reproduction, development, bone formation, and cardiovascular system. Here are a couple studies that have demonstrated Boron has some of these beneficial effects:

 

 

Lithium (1 mg):

A mineral that is currently considered non-essential, but it has a lot of research to argue it should be essential. It might have beneficial effects on brain function, mood, and inflammation. Here are a couple research articles that have demonstrated Lithium has some of these beneficial effects:

 

  • https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1080/07
  • RDA is recommended at 1 mg because of low lithium intakes being associated with increased rates of suicides, homicides, and arrests
  • https://instituteofmineralresearch.org/lithium-
  • RDA should be 1-20 mg because of its ability to up-regulate neurotrophins such as brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) and nerve-growth factor (NGF). It also has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity alongside powerful neuroprotective effects

 

Silicon (10 mg):

A naturally occurring mineral that is not essential to consume, but it does provide some benefits if it is consumed. Here are a couple studies that have been done on Silicon:

 

 

Shilajit (250 mg Fulvic Acid):

A sticky substance that develops over centuries from the slow decomposition of plants. It has 40-80 naturally occurring minerals in it. These along with its unique antioxidant Fulvic Acid can lead to beneficial effects on the cardiovascular system. We even included a little extra Fulvic Acid than what has been shown to be effective in this study:

 

 

Aquamin F® (500 mg):

An algae that naturally contains 72 different minerals. This all-natural ingredient gives you a wide range of minerals that you likely do not consume in your regular diet. Calcium makes up 32% of its weight, and Magnesium makes up 2.2% of its weight. It has even been shown that your body uses calcium more effectively from Aquamin F® than from the typical form of Calcium:
