VCU researchers fed rats a copper-deficient diet for 6 weeks, and concluded that copper-dependent mechanisms contribute to emphysema. (Source: www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22276220)
|2 Capsules||Amt /Serving||% Daily Value|
Vitamin C (as ascorbic acid)
Vitamin D3 (as cholecalciferol)
Vitamin B12 (as cyanocabalamin)
Calcium (as calcium amino acid chelate)
Magnesium (as magnesium glycinate chelate)
Zinc (as zinc glycinate chelate)
Selenium (as selenium chelate)
Copper (as copper chelate)
Manganese (as manganese glycinate chelate)
Chromium (as chromium nicotinate glycinate chelate)
Potassium (as potassium amino acid chelate)
Other ingredients: Stearic acid, calcium stearate, hydroxypropyl cellulose
To improve bioavailability, we added more amino acids to chelate with each mineral. This two-capsule formulation will optimize mineral absorption.
Since most men and post-menopausal women do not need supplemental iron, we removed the iron. If you need iron, consider supplementing your diet with one TransMins 2 Iron 27+ daily.
There are 20 essential minerals. Most minerals, such as sodium, oxygen, and flouride, are abundant in the foods you eat, air you breathe or water you drink. TransMins Mineral Complex provides eight essential nutrients that are commonly insufficient in your diet.
More importantly, TransMins Mineral Complex provides these minerals in a quantity to supplement your diet. Mean intakes for women over 20 years plus TransMins Mineral Complex in comparison to the Daily Value and Tolerable Upper Intake Levels is provided below.
Intake is based on "What We Eat in America" (NHANES 2007-2008 Nutrient Intakes from Food. No intake data available for chromium or manganese. Upper Level based on "Dietary Reference Intakes: The Essential Guide to Nutrient Requirements". No upper limit established for chromium; and, UL for magnesium is 400 mg for magnesium represents acute intake from pharmacological agents, like magnesium salts.
A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled 3-month study on 131 children and adults assessed the effects of vitamin and mineral supplements. Statistically significant improvements in metabolic status were found.
The supplement group had significantly greater improvements in the metabolic biomarkers than the placebo group on the Parental Global Impressions and subscores for Hyperactivity, Tantrumming, Overall, and Receptive Language. The conclusion is that a vitamin/mineral supplement is a reasonable therapy to consider.1
These findings are consistent with a 2000 randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial that confirmed that vitamin/mineral supplementation markedly raised the non-verbal intelligence of poorly-nourished Western school children.2
The Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDA) are the average daily dietary intake levels sufficient to meet the nutrient requirements of nearly all (97-98 percent) healthy individuals in a group. The Daily Value is used for nutritional labeling.

Nutrient density is a measure of the amount of nutrients in comparison to calories. Some of the most nutrient and mineral dense foods include:
|Clams||Wheat, Rice and Oat Bran|
|Liver, giblets, spleen, etc.|

Symptoms of potassium deficiency: increased blood pressure, salt sensitivity, kidney stones risk, cardiovascular disease risk, and severe potassium deficiency is hypokalemia (cardiac arrhythmias, muscle weakness, glucose intolerance)
Poor chromium status may contribute to incidence of impaired glucose tolerance and Type II diabetes
Symptoms of manganese deficiency: dermatitis, hypocholesterolemia
Symptoms of copper deficiency: Normocytic, hypochromic anemia, leukopenia, neutropenia and osteoporosis in copper-deficient infants and children
Symptoms of selenium deficiency: Keshan disease, Kashin-Beck disease
Symptoms of zinc deficiency: growth retardation, alopecia, diarrhea, delayed sexual maturation and impotence, eye and skin lesions, impaired appetite
