Spectramin Chelate by Douglas Laboratories is a comprehensive mineral/trace element formula that contains well tolerated and highly absorbable chelated and complexed minerals.
- Comprehensive mineral/trace element formula
Minerals play a variety of essential roles throughout the body. Calcium is the principal mineral constituent of bone and is thus essential for healthy bone structure and function. Calcium also participates fundamentally in blood clotting, nerve conduction, and muscle contraction.
Iodine is necessary for the synthesis of the thyroid hormones thyroxine and triiodothyronine. These thyroid hormones regulate the metabolic rate in the body. Magnesium is involved in energy metabolism, and is notably important in the heart, skeletal muscles, and nervous system.
Copper regulates iron metabolism and activates superoxide dismutase, a powerful endogenous antioxidant. Zinc is important for growth, immune system function, protein synthesis, antioxidant mechanisms, and wound healing.
Chromium is required for normal blood sugar and lipid metabolism; it is an integral component of glucose tolerance factor (GTF). Manganese is essential for antioxidant systems in the body, bone growth, fat metabolism, and protein, nucleic acid, and cartilage synthesis.
Molybdenum is involved in copper and iron transport, nucleic acid synthesis, and sulfur metabolism. Potassium is involved in normal muscle tone, nerve function, and many enzymes.
Selenium is an essential cofactor of glutathione peroxidase, a potent antioxidant. Current research suggests that silicon may have an inhibitory effect on loss of bone mineral mass as well as a stimulatory effect on bone formation.
Vanadium is active in lipid and glucose metabolism, while boron is involved in steroid hormone metabolism, cell membrane stability, and bone health.
