Chromium helps to carry proteins to where they are needed in the body, as well as metabolizing amino acids from those proteins for growth and life. It metabolizes glucose for energy, thereby helping regulate energy production as well as growth and repair in the body. The liver requires Chromium to be present as it combines other nutrients to create fatty acids.*^
Chromium supports insulin function and glucose utilization. It, along with Zinc
, work to maintain insulin and blood sugar levels that are already within the normal range. It may help with daily anxiety and occasional fatigue.*^

Magnesium is important for muscle contraction and relaxation. Exercise increases the amount of it that is stored in the bone, with a consequent increase of bone strength. Nerve communication depends on it. Magnesium is involved in blood pressure regulation and restful sleep. Body tissue purification and impurity purging is another activity of Magnesium. It is a door-man for each cell in your body, allowing nutrients into each cell and also sending out waste materials. Magnesium activates over 300 enzyme reactions in the body! It is lost in sweat and is easily depleted by its many activities. Magnesium must be replaced and maintained consistently.*^
Nerves, the bowels, bones, ligaments and cells store it. Absorption rates for it may decline as the body ages. Selenium is necessary for its absorption in the intestines while Boron may reduce the rate of its excretion from the body.*^
