Anderson's Health Solute ions OmniMin All-Natural Sea-Source Mineral Supplement Economy Size - 18 oz. (530 ml) 216-Day Supply by Mineral Resources International (MRI)
OmniMin All-Natural Sea-Source Mineral Supplement is the latest product breakthrough from the Anderson family, the founders and family who discovered the nutritional value and benefit of minerals from Utah’s Great Salt Lake and invented the first all-natural, ultra-concentrated, low-sodium mineral and trace mineral supplement (Anderson’s Concentrated Mineral Drops) followed by other GRAS mineral concentrates. The product’s and family’s story dates back to the late 1960’s when Hartley Anderson, a resident of Hooper, Utah, read newspaper columns by Dr. George W. Crane stating that many modern health conditions were the result of mineral deficiencies that could be addressed by consuming small amounts of sea water, which contained the broad spectrum of naturally occurring minerals and trace minerals.
Hartley learned that the Great Salt Lake in Utah contained the minerals and balance promoted by Dr. Crane. In 1969, Hartley and his wife, Gaye, began selling their first product, Inland Sea Water at health food stores and exhibitions across the United States. A few years later, the Andersons discovered a method for concentrating the minerals and removing the sodium. Today, 40 years later, the sons of Hartley and Gaye Anderson carry on the family tradition manufacturing the highest quality, all-natural, concentrated, low-sodium mineral supplement from Utah’s Great Salt Lake.
Each bottle of OmniMin originates from the family’s mineral harvesting operation located on the remote, pristine northwest arm of the Great Salt Lake. And, yes, each bottle of OmniMin is made with love and care by the Hartley Anderson family. The family goes to great lengths to produce its minerals. The minerals are concentrated through the family's traditional, all-natural, solar-evaporation process before they are harvested by hand and transported to the family’s manufacturing facility, Mineral Resources International, Inc. (MRI). The family uses no artificial ingredients, dyes, chemicals, preservatives, etc. in its minerals. The minerals are the result of intensely hot summer heat and freezing winter temperatures characteristic of Utah’s desert climate that define and craft the minerals. Further, to assure our customers of the quality, purity, and value of the product, the family conducts rigorous potency and purity testing both at MRI, the manufacturing facility, as well as outside labs. Each bottle of OmniMin is produced at the family’s modern manufacturing facility in Ogden, Utah.
What is OmniMin?
OmniMin is a concentrated, liquid mineral dietary supplement designed to be taken daily to replenish minerals to support health and well being. Compared with other mineral and trace mineral products, including colloidal mineral supplements, OmniMin provides the best value in an all-natural, low-sodium, full-spectrum, sea-source ionic magnesium and mineral supplement.
How Does OmniMin Work?
OmniMin is a liquid dietary supplement you take daily. OmniMin is formulated to supplement your body with magnesium, an essential mineral, plus a balance of naturally occurring sea-source minerals found in trace and ultra-trace amounts for body balancing and full-spectrum resonance. You may use OmniMin as a companion to your supplementation regimen (many multivitamins don’t provide adequate amounts of minerals or trace minerals), to support pH balance, or if you just want to make sure you’re receiving enough minerals every day. OmniMin is low in sodium and is ideal for those watching their sodium intake or who may be following a sodium-restricted diet.
What are minerals, especially ionic minerals, and why do I need them?
Minerals are naturally occurring elements that have a characteristic chemical composition and crystalline structure. Minerals are needed by the body and perform a number of critical, vital functions. Most of us are well aware of the functions of calcium, an essential mineral, and how calcium influences bone health. But many other minerals are essential, too, and perform a wide range of crucial biological functions. Magnesium, for instance, is an essential mineral that is involved in more than 300 metabolic reactions. It helps regulate vascular tone, assists in energy production (the production of cellular energy), maintains the electrical stability of cells, and plays an important role in maintaining bone mineral content. Some of the most essential minerals and trace minerals have shown a dependency upon being ionic in order to be absorbed in the intestinal lumen and/ or to be physiologically valid.
Through digestive processes, some of which are dependent upon sufficient stomach acid, the body is able to break down some other forms of organic or inorganic bound minerals and trace minerals to their ionic form so they can be absorbed. Minerals and trace minerals are capable of remaining in a free flowing, non-bound ionic form in a balanced solution. The fluids of the body are largely ionic solutions. The body uses the movement of ions through these fluids and across cell membranes as an integral part of many vital body processes. For example, ions regulate acid-base balance and water balance. Ions also serve essential roles in nerve conduction, muscle contraction, heart action, blood clotting, protein metabolism, bone and tooth formation, and enzyme activation. In fact, every body process is dependant on ions.
What are trace minerals, and why are they important?
Micro or trace minerals are those minerals that the body requires less than 100 milligrams of per day. Trace minerals include chromium, cobalt, copper, fluoride, iodine, iron, manganese, molybdenum, nickel, selenium, silicon, tin, vanadium, and zinc. Trace minerals are involved in numerous, yet crucial enzyme reactions in the body.
How Do I Take OmniMin?
OmniMin is a liquid, so it’s designed to be added to beverages and food and consumed either throughout the day or you can take the suggested amount one time daily. OmniMin relies on easy teaspoon measurements for easy lifestyle dosing. Consume 1/8th to ½ teaspoon OmniMin so that daily consumption does not exceed ½ teaspoon.
With OmniMin, lifestyle dosing is easy. It’s no longer necessary to swallow a large dose of an unpleasant-tasting mineral supplement. With OmniMin, you can add it to your morning coffee or juice. You can also spread your consumption of OmniMin throughout the day to juices, ades, teas, sodas, or any beverage your normally consume. You can also add OmniMin to recipes and ready-to-eat foods to ensure you’re getting the critical minerals your body needs. OmniMin enhances the flavor of many foods and beverages and by spreading consumption throughout the day, you increase the potential for mineral absorption and retention while reducing laxative effect that can be commonly associated with increased dosages of minerals.
Why Should I Choose OmniMin?
OmniMin is manufactured by the Mineral Resources International, Inc., owned and operated by the Anderson family, who invented mineral supplements using minerals harvested from Utah’s Great Salt Lake. The ionic minerals in OmniMin are GRAS meaning they’ve received the Generally Recognized as Safe designation. Furthermore, OmniMin is assayed for purity and potency by MRI’s in-house QA lab and independent lab. OmniMin passes the U.S. Food Chemicals Codex’s heavy metals safety test and is Kosher-certified. OmniMin is the liquid mineral supplement you can feel safe using every day.
Is OmniMin Right for Me?
As with any dietary supplement, you should check with your physician first, and you should always inform your doctor of the supplements you are taking. OmniMin is a rich source of magnesium, and magnesium is contraindicated in people with renal failure, high-grade atrioventricular (AV) blocks, myasthenia gravis, or who may be sensitive to a magnesium-containing supplement.
Why are minerals so important?
Minerals are vital for life, health, and well being. Minerals forge our skeletal structure, they help keep our hearts beating, muscles functioning, and help transmit messages throughout the central nervous system. Your body relies on a steady intake of minerals each day. If we don’t receive the required amount of minerals, within a short time the body’s stores are depleted (mineral deficiency state), we feel rundown, lethargic, and may become vulnerable to a wide crossover of mineral deficiency effects. Minerals work in synergy with other minerals (calcium teams with magnesium and trace elements) and vitamins to perform their respective functions in health.
How do minerals and trace minerals work in the body?
Voluminous research has indicated that minerals and trace minerals are vital to our well being and are the key to abundant health and vitality. These elements work together—synergistically—along with vitamins, enzymes, and amino acids to maintain proper acid-base balance, water balance, muscle function, and nerve conduction. Once an ionic mineral is absorbed, it is carried via the bloodstream to the cells, transported across cell membranes and utilized by the body. The body has dynamic and very narrow needs for minerals, electrolytes, and trace minerals.
Which is more important minerals or vitamins?
Both are essential to human health. Every living cell depends on minerals and vitamins to form the proper composition of body fluids, to build bone, transmit nerve signals throughout the nervous system, etc. Both vitamins and minerals are interdependent on one another. However, vitamins and minerals work synergistically. What is important and what is truly unique and innovative about Anderson's Health Solute ions’ products is that they’ve combined multiple tiers of nutrition—minerals, trace minerals, vitamins, nutrient co-factors, etc.—into a tablet.
Are all minerals and trace minerals the same? What is the difference between “ionic” minerals and “colloidal?”
No, minerals and trace minerals are not the same. An ionic mineral is a charged element that, when broken down into solution, becomes either positively or negatively charged. In solution, ionic minerals work to find a netural balance by associating positive and negatives charges. As minerals pass through the small intestine, the body binds ionized elements and transfers them to the blood stream where they are then directed to the specific area(s) of the body requiring additional support. Colloidal minerals are those elements mined from ancient sea beds and vegetation. They are an aggregate of atoms suspended in a solution. As such, they cannot be easily assimilated by the body and do not conduct the body electrically.
I've noticed that some of Anderson's supplements contain herbs. Why?
One of the unique features of our products has always been the marriage or blending of multiple tiers of nutrition-i.e., minerals, vitamins, and herbs. Anderson's feels that this incorporation not only sets their formulas apart from other supplements, but provides unique benefits. Herbs can be very useful and have been used safely for thousands of years. There is a strong reliance on and tradition of using herbal remedies in asian cultures. Here in the United States, there is a similarly a tradition of the use of herbs among Native Americans and early settlers. The herbs that are found in Anderson's supplement formulas are carefully researched before they are added to their product.
How are the herbs sterilized that are in Anderson's formulas?
Many herbs are sterilized through means such as irradiation or the use of ethylene oxide or EtO as it is known. EtO is a substance often used to sterilize certain items that are not able to be sterilized via other methods. For instance, spices and herbs as well as medical devices are often sterilized with EtO. Anderson's is one of few companies in the industry to only purchase and use non irradiated herbs and non-ethylene oxide treated herbs in their formulas. Anderson's purchases herbs from vendors that have been sterilized via heat, steam or ozone sterilization techniques.
Can I take additional amounts of herbs even if they're contained in Anderson's formula?
Before taking any dietary supplement, it's recommended that you first check with your physician or health care provider-especially if you have a medical condition and/or are taking prescription medications. Herbs can interfere with certain medications and there are risks involved in taking high levels of herbs. Therfore, please review your supplement regimen with your physician and check with him or her before taking an herbal supplement-especially if it is an herb already provided in one of the Health Solute Ions formulas.
