Mineral 650 is a comprehensive blend of minerals essential to supporting the physiological function of the whole body. The minerals are all in easily absorbed forms and carefully balanced so as not to interfere with one another. There are far too many to comment on, but the main ingredients include:Iron, which combines with protein and copper in producing haemoglobin, a crucial constituent of blood which enables the cardiovascular system to distribute oxygen around the body. Iron also has a crucial function in developing muscular function. Magnesium, which is essential for the metabolism of carbohydrates, amino acids and fats for energy, and it also activates the enzymes that are needed for the contraction of muscles and cardiac function, as well as balancing the body’s acid and alkaline balance. Zinc, which provides crucial support for the immune system, as well as acting as an antioxidant that promotes healthy skin and muscles. It shows effect in reducing conditions ranging from depression to age-related macular degeneration. Calcium is well known as being essential for building a healthy skeleton, but its effect doesn’t end there. It’s also vital to the health of the muscular, circulatory and digestive systems, and it plays an important role in the production of healthy blood cells. Mineral 650 provides a balanced daily dose of these and numerous other essential minerals.
