What Contributes to Mineral Deficiencies?
Besides chelation therapy; poor diet, vegetarianism, high acid diet, medications, and stress can all deplete minerals.
Minerals often act as coenzymes so metabolic conversions can happen. Several minerals feed into the Krebs Cycle so energy can be made from food. Minerals are also involved in the immune system, hormone metabolism, vitamin metabolism, bone metabolism and reproduction. Since magnesium is more difficult to obtain in the daily diet, a 1:1 ratio of calcium:magnesium was chosen for this formula.
