Megafood Balaced Minerals contains chelated minerals since the minerals in this product are chelated with glycine during the manufacturing process, which results in the bisglycinate forms as declared on the labels. Megafood Balanced Minerals provides two macro minerals (calcium and magnesium), seven trace minerals (iodine, zinc, selenium, manganese, chromium, molybdenum, and boron), and a mineral blend with more trace minerals.

There is no iron added to this formula.

This MegaFood product is made with real food, carefully selected herbs and added nutrients. Each mineral is paired with wholesome nutritional yeast using a unique process to deliver guaranteed potency and the benefit of health-promoting compounds present in the whole food itself. Satisfaction guaranteed or your money back.

Megafood believes that the most nutritious food comes from healthy soils and valued farmers. Our goal is to work with farmers who share our commitment to organic and regenerative agriculture.

Features

  • Provides nutritional support for normal bone development and muscle function
  • Organic herbs deliver synergistic trace minerals

What Are the Benefits of Minerals?

The list below give a quick summary of the health benefits of the minerals included in Megafood Balanced Minerals.

Calcium. This macro mineral, macro because you need it in large amounts in your daily diet, is required to maintain bone density, proper neuromuscular function, and blood clotting reactions. As you can see, calcium is not only needed for strong bones and teeth, calcium is also needed for the heart, nervous system, and for muscle growth and contraction. Sufficient vitamin D is needed for calcium absorption. Sugar consumption and stress pull calcium from the bones.

Magnesium. This macro mineral is essential to activate numerous enzymes, calcium and potassium uptake, nerve transmission, bone formation, and metabolism of carbohydrates and minerals. It is magnesium and not calcium what helps form hard tooth enamel, resistant to decay. Just as iron is a key constituent of our hemoglobin, magnesium is the equivalent mineral in plants. Magnesium is at the center of chlorophyll molecules and is part of every tumor suppressor enzyme in the human body.

The following minerals are considered trace minerals:

Iodine. Although needed in minute amounts, iodine is essential for numerous biochemical processes, such as fat metabolism, thyroid function and the production of sex hormones. Proper iodine utilization requires sufficient levels of Vitamin A, a fat-soluble vitamin provided by animal fats. Iodine in combination with the amino acid tyrosine is manufactured into the thyroid hormone thyroxin. Thyroid hormones control and regulate digestion, heart rate, body temperature, sweat gland activity, nervous and reproductive system, general metabolism, and body weight.

Zinc. Required for mental development, healthy reproductive organs (especially the prostate gland), protein synthesis, and collagen formation. Zinc has also an important function in mechanisms of blood sugar control and therefore protects against diabetes; however, it’s not the only component needed for a healthy blood sugar metabolism. Zinc is also needed to keep healthy levels of vitamin E in the blood. Zinc acts as a cofactor on more than 70 metalloenzymes* in the human body. Zinc is an integral part of the of the RNA molecule and participates in cell division and synthesis of DNA.

Selenium. As a vital antioxidant, selenium works with vitamin E to protect the immune system and maintain healthy heart function. Selenium is needed for pancreatic function and tissue elasticity and has also been shown to protect against radiation and toxic minerals. Selenium prevents cellular and subcellular fats from going rancid, which externally are seen as age or liver spots. Selenium has been shown to improve genome stability and maintain telomere function and length.

Manganese. Needed for healthy nerves, a healthy immune system, and blood sugar regulation. Manganese also plays a role in the formation of breast milk and in the growth of healthy bones. Manganese activates several enzyme systems including those involved with glucose metabolism, energy production, and antioxidant enzymes. Manganese is a major component of several matalloenzymes, hormones, and proteins. Manganese is part of the developmental processor and the structure of the fragile ear bones and joint cartilage.

Chromium. Essential mineral for glucose metabolism (blood sugar regulation) and the synthesis of cholesterol, fats, and protein. Walter Mertz, the director of the USDA field services, published the results of his research in Federation Proceedings that showed clearly that the entire medical specialty of endocrinology would be wipeout by adding chromium to the human diet everywhere.

Molybdenum. Needed in small amounts for nitrogen metabolism, iron absorption, fat oxidation, and normal cell function. Molybdenum is essential to all organisms as a constituent of several metalloenzymes*.

Boron. Needed for healthy bones. Boric acid can be prepared by dissolving various other boron compounds in water (there are a variety of boron compounds that will eventually form boric acid by adding water). Boric acid has antiseptic, anti fungal, and antiviral properties, and mild solutions of boric acid are used as wound disinfectants and as an eye antiseptic wash. In fact, boron is an active ingredient in the first of its kind pharmaceutical as Bortezomib used for the treatment of bone marrow cancer and certain lymphomas.

Other Trace Minerals. Besides the trace minerals above, the Megafood Balanced Minerals supplement has a blend of many other minerals needed for hundreds of enzymes; enabling a multitude of biochemical reactions; normal growth and development as well as neurological functions; serving as anti-oxidants; supporting the blood system; certain hormones; and normal gonadal (reproductive glands) development. They are all important. Plants absorb minerals from the soil and turn them in colloidal form, the form that is best absorbed by humans. We eat plants and get those minerals inside of us. We also ingest more minerals when we eat other animals that eat those mineralized plants.

Trace mineral amounts in soil and water are not the same everywhere in the world, so where you live could also impact the quantity and quality of trace minerals in your food. This is why we should eat a variety of plants. High yield farming techniques in the U.S. and other countries can deplete trace minerals in the soil. For instance, certain sub-Saharan regions are especially low in zinc.
