Natural Nutrient Support*

WELL-ROUNDED BENEFITS WITH MINERALS

Minerals are very important to general health and fitness. We use minerals to sustain ourselves and move towards our fitness goals, which makes them very versatile and useful ingredients. Most foods do contain minerals to some degree, but the amount of minerals is often insufficient for progressing towards a fitness goal.

Make sure you're getting enough high-quality mineral support and help minimize nutrient deficiencies.

Some of the main areas minerals are used to support include:

  • Strong bones*
  • High levels of energy*
  • Maintenance of electrolyte levels*
  • Protection against free radicals*
All About Minerals

Bone Support Is Just a Bonus*

CALCIUM IS MORE THAN A SIMPLE MINERAL

Most people know that calcium is used to support strong bones, but calcium is also great for promoting fat metabolism and muscle relaxation.* While one can certainly get calcium from dairy-rich foods, many people do not prefer this source because of lactose intolerance or because of milk's fat content.

Our isolated calcium products come in various forms including pills, capsules, chews, and liquids, so find one that's right for you!

For best results, consume 1000-1200 mg daily, never exceeding 2.5 grams a day. Do not consume calcium, zinc, and iron at the same time because the body will not absorb them equally.

All About Minerals

Iron Is Unbelievable

ENCOURAGE ENERGY AND FIGHT FATIGUE*

Iron is a nutrient that is found in red meats and other foods, and is directly related to our energy levels because it helps bind oxygen with hemoglobin, supporting the transport of oxygen in the body. Iron supports many areas, such as:

  • Fighting fatigue*
  • Supporting healthy sleep and concentration*
  • Supporting oxygen delivery and energy levels*

Endurance athletes (men and women) can definitely use iron to support their training, as endurance athletes typically use much more iron than the normal person.*

CHROMIUM HAS YOUR BACK*

Chromium helps support your body's production of insulin - the hormone that helps to regulate blood sugar levels. Optimizing your blood sugar levels is important for a variety of reasons, such as:

  • Supporting proper glucose uptake*
  • Promoting healthy energy levels*
  • Encouraging fat metabolism*
  • Supporting efficient muscle growth*

THINK ZINC FOR BEHIND-THE-SCENES SUPPORT

Help support your immune system with zinc products and keep up the good work. * Zinc's primary role in the body is supporting a strong immune system, but it also supports a variety of other areas including:

  • Normal hormone levels*
  • Cholesterol levels already within a normal range*
  • Digestion*
  • Cell growth and repair*

Many individuals often overlook zinc products, but it's a great behind-the-scenes supplement for anyone with fitness and health in mind. Try it out and see for yourself!
