Your body needs antioxidants to neutralize the damaging effects of free radicals. Free radicals are the by-product of common bodily processes (eating, breathing, exercising) that can cause the deterioration of your cell structure, making you age faster. Antioxidants bond to these free radicals, returning them to a stable state. When you increase the antioxidants available to perform this neutralizing work, you boost your body’s ability to combat oxidative stress and can actually inhibit natural signs of aging. TMR antioxidant products are super-charged with a proprietary ionic complex of 70+ minerals for greater absorption, so that your body gets the most benefit out of every additional nutrient.
How is ConcenTrace made?
ConcenTrace isn't actually something made. It's an amazing complex of over 72 ionic trace minerals that has been made by Mother Nature. For thousands of years, every sprouting seed and towering tree has helped dissolve minerals, raising them from deep within the soil to the surface, where they are easily washed away. But they don't just wash away. They are carried in the rivers and streams into oceans and seas like the Great Salt Lake (GSL) in Utah, USA. But the GSL is unique because it has no outlets and is considered an inland sea. Therefore, the GSL is rich in minerals that have been deposited there over these thousands of years.
At Trace Minerals Research, they simply harvest the minerals from the pristine shores of the GSL at their state-of-the-art mineral harvesting facility. This facility was designed by certified chemical engineer David S. Butts, one of the world's foremost experts in the field of solar evaporation technology. Butts has 40 years of experience in the design, operation, and extraction of minerals and salts from lakes, oceans, salars, and underground deposits like the Great Salt Lake. The unique design of this facility allows them to harvest high quality minerals from the Great Salt Lake with the lowest impact possible on the environment. Trace Mineral Research's solar evaporation ponds are only about 500 feet from the edge of the waters of the Great Salt Lake, which allows them to transport the lake water to their ponds without having to trench or disrupt the lake's bed.
Why is ConcenTrace so powerful?
ConcenTrace contains a full spectrum of all the minerals in a balance natural to the body. Once harvested from the GSL, they use a completely natural concentration process without the use of chemicals or dyes that removes the sodium from the GSL water. Solar evaporation technology is used to concentrate the water, which really means that all they use is natural sunshine! The result of this natural process is ConcenTrace, an all natural ionic trace mineral blend that is 26 times more concentrated than colloidal trace minerals, making it one of the most naturally powerful health supplements on the market.
In addition, all of Trace Mineral Research's facilities are FDA cGMP certified (Good Manufacturing Practices) through the Natural Products Association. GMP certification shows customers, retailers and international buyers that Trace Mineral Research is committed to producing safe products of high quality. They are constantly looking for new technologies and research that help improve their manufacturing processes, and their products are tested by a third-party laboratory to ensure quality and safety.
Is is safe?
GRAS-Affirmed-ConcenTrace is so pure and natural that it has been GRAS-Affirmed for use in food and beverages. According to FDA regulations, the process to achieve GRAS status involved an intensive review by an independent panel of experts, qualified by training and experience to evaluate the safety of food ingredients. To affirm ConcenTrace’s GRAS status, TMR sought out an expert panel from AIBMR Life Sciences Inc. (Puyallup, WA) because of its experience, knowledge and expertise with GRAS self-affirmations. The expert panel included physicians and two PhD toxicologists with 83 years combined experience in toxicology, who also worked as division heads for the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Halal Certified-ConcenTrace has been reviewed and certfied Halal by the Islamic Food and Nutrition Council of America (IFANCA). Kosher Certified-ConcenTrace has also been certified Kosher by the Rabbinical Council of California (RCC). Certified Vegan-the American Vegetarian Association has certified that ConcenTrace™ is approved for vegan status.
Your Body Needs ConcenTrace
Your body is an intricate circuit board of electric charges and impulses. In order for it to stay balanced and perform at optimum efficiency, you need to constantly replenish yourself with the minerals and trace elements found in ConcenTrace. If you are one of the 90% of Americans experts estimate suffer mineral imbalance or deficiency, your body is lacking these essential elements, causing your body to misfire so you feel rundown and tired.
Power up with ConcenTrace from Trace Minerals Research. It’s highly concentrated and is the perfect solution for replenishing your body with the nutrients you need to maintain optimum health.
An All-Natural Solution of Living Minerals
As mentioned before, ConcenTrace is extracted directly from a natural source that took thousands of years to create. Over these thousands of years, the minerals in ConcenTrace have been broken down to their most natural state where they have become naturally charged, living minerals that are bioavailable and soluble in water. In addition, the solution is in precisely the same proportion as healthy human fluids without synthetically produced compounds or deadly heavy metals.
The ionic minerals in ConcenTrace also have the power to maintain and even improve the pH balance in your body. It’s important to keep your body’s acid base balance because an acidic body is a breeding ground for disease. ConcenTrace is so essential to human health that you’ll find it in every one of TMR's quality products. ConcenTrace is the perfect way to replenish your body with all the elements you need to plug in and recharge.

Why you need ionic minerals:
Minerals, the Universe, and You
What are minerals anyway? Minerals are nothing more than elements—the very same elements that grace the periodic table inside a high school chemistry text book like chromium, magnesium, iron, zinc, and so on. They are the elements that comprise the entire universe, this earth, and everything on it, including you. Your body is truly a masterpiece formed from these same elements. As such, it is important to constantly replenish your body with the elements it expends on a daily basis.
Chemical and electrical processes are occurring within your body at every moment. These processes can only function correctly if the proper balance of minerals is continually being supplied to your system. Iron for your blood, sulfur for your muscles, calcium for your bones, and an aggregation of many other elements in balanced trace amounts help to ensure the proper function of your body.
What Are Ions?
An ion is a mineral or element that has a positive or negative charge. On the molecular level, that means the element has either too many or too few electrons. This unstable ionic state allows the element to bond readily with water, making it possible for the body to absorb it. In this state, an element has specific positive or negative electrical signatures that cause a dynamic equilibrium to take place. The body can then facilitate changes to move nutrients to the areas that need them.
What Are Trace Minerals?
You may collect silver coins, wear a platinum ring, or have a gold filling. You’ve likely sipped tea poured from a copper kettle, eaten a cookie from a fancy tin container, or traveled on an airplane made of titanium. But did you know that these elements and many others—in very small, balanced trace amounts—are critical to your health? Although trace minerals are no longer as plentiful in the foods you eat, they exist plentifully in their proper proportions in the mineral-rich waters of the earth’s oceans and seas.
The Stripping of Mother Earth
Traditionally, eating fresh grains, fruits, and vegetables grown in nutrient-rich soil has been the primary supply for a full spectrum of ionic minerals. Unfortunately in today’s world, naturally occurring, nutrient-rich soil is becoming increasingly rare. Eons of vegetation growth and aggressive modern farming techniques have brought many of the earth’s minerals to the surface where they have been washed away. Synthesized fertilizers are routinely applied to farms and fields where minerals have been depleted. But man-made fertilizers provide only enough mineral substance to support basic plant life. Numerous trace minerals essential to human life don’t get replenished.
Where Have All the Minerals Gone?
Many of the trace elements once abundant in soil have been washed into the oceans. In the oceans they are found in their proper proportions—the same basic proportions that are found in healthy human bodies.
In a few surviving inland seas such as the Great Salt Lake of western North America, these essential elements exist in highly concentrated, salubrious proportions. This healthy, intricately balanced proportion of minerals and trace elements found in sea water is beneficial to the human body. Today, these life-sustaining sea waters contain all of the minerals and elements necessary to support human life. Most importantly, these minerals and elements are ionic and in perfect balance—prime for being absorbed into the cells of your body.
The Importance of Ionic Minerals
Every second of every day your body relies on ionic minerals and trace minerals to conduct and generate billions of tiny electrical impulses. Without these impulses, not a single muscle, including your heart, would be able to function. Your brain would not function and the cells would not be able to use osmosis to balance your water pressure and absorb nutrients. To ensure you are getting the ionic minerals and electrolytes your body needs, only choose ionic mineral supplements or supplements that contain ionic minerals. Experts estimate 90 percent of Americans suffer from mineral imbalance and deficiency.
A New Plague: Mineral Imbalance
Because your body requires nearly two thirds of all the elements currently known to man in order to maintain health, keeping these minerals in balance is a complex, yet incredibly vital task. The events of everyday living demand a continual ingestion of minerals.
There are 92 known elements, 22 hypothesized others, and hundreds of isotopic variations. It’s no wonder that scientists are only now beginning to discover the effects and interrelationships of minerals in human systems, such as how minerals help maintain a healthy balance, and what adverse effects are created by a mineral imbalance. Experts estimate that 90 percent of Americans suffer from mineral imbalance and deficiency. If you are one of them—whether because of frequent exercise, stress, or a diet of overly refined, nutrient-poor foods—your body will attempt to correct the situation in futility, usually resulting in food cravings, muscle cramps, and general fatigue.
The Key Role of Absorption
The absorption of minerals primarily takes place within the small intestines. As food matter passes through the intestines, minerals transfer into the blood stream through the walls of the intestines by way of the villi. This can only happen if the minerals are in an ionic form. Although stomach acid helps ionize the minerals in foods, a mineral supplement should contain already naturally ionized minerals to be fully absorbed.
The Secret of Life in a Dead Inland Sea
Western North America’s Great Salt Lake is the world’s oldest inland sea. A remnant of the last great Ice Age, the Great Salt Lake in Utah has been collecting and concentrating the minerals and trace elements of the surrounding Rocky Mountains for tens of thousands of years. The result is nutrient rich waters which contain over 72 ionic minerals and trace elements that are eight to ten times more concentrated than regular seawater—in precisely the same proportion as healthy human fluids. It is from this source that Trace Minerals Research harvests the elements and trace minerals that go into every product.
What Can You Do?
You can start by making sure you’re getting enough minerals in your diet. Right? Eat organically grown fruits and vegetables, wholegrain breads and fortified cereals. In addition, take a multivitamin or mineral supplement. That’s a good start, but even those measures are likely to leave your body wanting for a full spectrum of properly proportioned, readily available ionic minerals and trace minerals.
That’s Where Trace Minerals Research Can Help
For over 35 years, Trace Minerals Research has been dedicated to combating the growing problem of mineral deficiency and imbalance in modern society. By harvesting the health-promoting ionic minerals found in the Great Salt Lake and making them available to the general public, they are committed to being the immutable source for the minerals necessary to maintain proper health.
Today, Trace Minerals Research offers over 100 different health promoting products that contain ConcenTrace, the premier ionic mineral mixture produced from the waters of the Great Salt Lake. Over the years, thousands of people who lacked essential trace elements in their diets have felt a difference in their health and well-being when replenishing these vital nutrients. Perhaps it’s time you did, too.
Frequently Asked Questions
What are ionically-charged minerals?
An ionic mineral is an element that has a charge, either positive or negative. On the molecular level, that means the element has either one too many or too few electrons. This unstable ionic state allows the element to bond readily with water, making it possible for the body to absorb it. In this form, an element has specific positive or negative electrical signatures.These signatures combine in a dynamic dance of positive and negative charges whose electric flow helps move nutrients into the body.
What are trace minerals?
You may collect silver coins, wear a platinum ring, or have a gold filling. You've likely sipped tea poured from a copper kettle, eaten a cookie from a fancy tin container, or traveled on an airplane made of titanium. But did you know that platinum, gold, copper and titanium (along with many others) are critical to your health? Although only minute amounts of these “trace minerals” are needed, the body cannot function properly without them. Yet they are no longer as common in the foods you eat. Luckily, you can find them in their proper proportions in mineral-rich seas.
Where have all the minerals gone?
Traditionally, eating fresh grains, fruits, and vegetables grown in nutrient-rich soil provided an adequate supply of the full spectrum of ionically-charged minerals. Unfortunately today, naturally-occurring, nutrient-rich soil is not what most food is grown in. Vegetation growth and aggressive modern farming techniques have brought many of the earth's minerals to the surface where they have been washed away.
Synthesized fertilizers are routinely applied to farms and fields where minerals have been depleted. But man-made fertilizers provide only enough mineral substance to support basic plant life. Numerous trace minerals so essential to human life are never replenished.
Why is absorption so important?
You cannot benefit from minerals unless your body can absorb them. The absorption of minerals mostly takes place within the small intestines.As food matter passes through the intestines, minerals transfer into the blood stream through the walls of the intestines. However, this transfer only occurs if the minerals are ionically-charged. Although stomach acid helps ionize dry minerals, a mineral supplement must contain naturally-ionized liquid minerals to be fully absorbed.
Why ionic minerals?
Minerals that are absorbed in their ionic form are in a liquid solution and have either a positive or negative charge. These charges form your body’s communications hub, conducting electrical signals that move nutrients throughout the body, keep the body in balance, and help the muscles function.In fact, without these impulses, not a single muscle (including your heart)would be able to function, your brain function would cease and your cells would not be able to use osmosis to balance water pressure and absorb nutrients. In recent research, minerals have been shown to play a significant role in averting a variety of degenerative diseases and processes. They may also prevent and reduce injury from environmental pollutants, help protect the body against the effects of toxic minerals and enhance the body’s ability to work and learn.
