Trace elements or minerals are essential nutrients required by the body in very small amounts. The body cannot produce these minerals by itself, they are obtained from diet or dietary supplements. Some of the most obvious signs of a trace mineral deficiency include a weak immune system, anaemia, chronic fatigue and low energy levels, irregular heartbeat, brain fog, poor digestion and appetite.

Zinc is needed for the body’s defensive (immune) system to properly work. It plays a role in cell division, cell growth, wound healing, and the breakdown of carbohydrates. Zinc is also needed for the sense of smell and taste, and for normal skin hydration.
Selenium is an antioxidant. It supports the immune function, reproduction and thyroid function.
Copper is effective for brain development and maintenance of brain health, healthy skin and connective tissue, wound healing and growth of new blood vessels. Copper also forms white blood cells for maintenance of an effective immune response, and storage of energy in our cells.
Manganese facilitates carbohydrate, protein and cholesterol metabolism, cartilage and bone formation and wound healing. Manganese also supports a healthy nervous system
and brain function.
Chromium helps control glucose levels and assists with metabolism.
The most effective way to absorb these minerals is directly into the bloodstream via IV.
