Thorne Research’s Citramins® provides essential minerals‚ such as copper and iron‚ which your body needs to stay active and healthy. The minerals contained in this supplement are chelated‚ which means they’re bound to citric acid‚ ensuring that they’re absorbed more effectively by the body. Citric acid plays a key role in the absorption of essential minerals and facilitates many metabolic processes. The citric acid cycle (also known as the Kreb's cycle) generates energy through the oxidation of acetate (a compound found in proteins‚ fats‚ and carbohydrates) into carbon dioxide. Citric acid has also been proven to reduce the amount of nutrients excreted in urine‚ meaning that you retain a higher proportion and experience greater benefit.
Certain groups of people are at increased risk of nutritional deficiencies that can lead to health problems. Older people who suffer from digestive conditions find it more difficult to absorb minerals efficiently; also at risk are people with poor diets‚ children‚ teenagers‚ and those suffering from eating disorders and chronic diseases. In addition‚ certain prescription medications can prevent your body from absorbing certain minerals.
Even people who eat a healthy‚ balanced diet can be at risk of mineral deficiencies. The amount of minerals contained in fruit and vegetables can vary depending on the type of soil in which they are grown; those that have been grown in mineral-rich soil will contain more than those grown in depleted soil.
