Pic-Mins by Thorne Research
Research on trace minerals has demonstrated their importance in human health. Trace minerals are cofactors in multiple enzymatic reactions in the body. In addition, they are essential for proper hormone and neurotransmitter function. A deficiency of one or more of these trace minerals can have an adverse impact on cardiovascular health, bone health, fertility, cognitive health, and immune function. Even a mild deficiency of a trace mineral can result in unsatisfactory growth and development. Although many trace minerals are naturally present in fruits and vegetables, mineral depletion of the soil has rendered much of today's produce deficient in these essential nutrients. Thorne's Pic-Mins includes seven essential trace minerals: zinc, selenium, chromium, manganese, molybdenum, boron, and vanadium.
