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.
