Trace minerals are needed by your body in small amounts. In comparison to most vitamins and minerals‚ which have a recommended daily allowance of between 800 to 1‚200 mg per day‚ you only need between 0.2 and 15 mg of trace minerals daily. However‚ you still require them to support vital bodily functions.
Certain diseases are associated with deficiencies in trace elements like selenium. Fortunately‚ trace mineral deficiencies are rare‚ and most people usually get enough by eating a well-balanced diet. Unfortunately‚ life can sometimes get in the way of eating healthy food. For extra reassurance‚ you may want to take a daily supplement.
Basic Nine™ by Biotics Research contains nine trace elements‚ three of which are powerful antioxidants: selenium‚ superoxide dismutase (SOD)‚ and catalase. Catalase and SOD are enzymes; SOD acts within cells to help destroy the cell-damaging free radical superoxide‚ and also works to repair cells. Superoxide dismutase is found in the skin‚ and its free-radical fighting abilities may lessen the visible signs of aging. Meanwhile‚ catalase is essential in the conversion of damaging free radicals; SOD converts superoxide to hydrogen peroxide‚ with catalase then converting it to water and oxygen. The catalyzing action of catalase essentially neutralizes free radicals.
As well as providing powerful antioxidant benefits‚ selenium also plays an important role in metabolizing the food you eat into energy. It’s also essential to the healthy operation of the thyroid and immune systems.
Each bottle of Biotics Research’s Basic Nine™ should last for over three months if taken at the recommended dosage of one tablet per day‚ unless otherwise advised by your doctor. Excessive intake of any trace element may interfere with the absorption and utilization of other nutrients in your body.
