Advice & Tips:
Impact: huge on daily life: This product has become my primary first line of defense for all my medical conditions. This product effects me as if I’m the tin man getting oil to move.

NOTE: this is a ‘low sodium’ Trace Mineral liquid, that can be utilized by those with blood pressure problems (evidentally, some competitive products are too high in sodium for many health conditions).

Benefits for me:
1) body stiffness eliminated
2) heat intolerance reduced
3) cold intolerance reduced
4) dehydration reduced or eliminated
5) chiropractic appts reduced or eliminated

The above benefits are achieved IF:
1) I’m in environmental temperatures in my comfort zone),
2) I’m eating healthy (no sugar, caffeine, foods I’m sensative too),
3) I’m not changing medications (certain shifts in nutritional oils/vitamins/probiotics/enzymes/antibiotics, seem to effect efficacy of this product).
4) I’m not exercising

unexpected Benefits:
1) energy increased
2) yeast infection protection (don’t get as many if at all)
3) bladder infection protection (don’t get as many if at all)
4) pms symptoms reduced: joint pain, tendonitis, tmj

unexpected Disadvantages:
1) seems to lower efficacy of my mental health supplementation in regards to ocd, but not enough to cause me concern.
2) fat accumulation in abdomen: mild
NOTE: I thought was fluid retention, and I guess it could be, but even when I eat clean and eat diuretic foods, it doesn’t go away). This condition started w/in 1-2wks of my taking the supplement, however, it evidentally is not a side effect that manufacturer is aware of or evidentally has been reported. Probably my own body’s pre-existing problem with electrolyte or mineral or hormone balance.

Usage notes: For me (can be different for every one): I take 40 drops daily (as suggested on the bottle) in 10 glasses of water. I sip slowly during the day, without drinking more than a cup during a given half hour. I get stomach growls and discomfort, along with diareah if I drink too much of it during a small amount of time or if I drink more than 40 drops daily. Unfortunatly, the product doesn’t work as well when I dilute it in more than 10 glasses of water daily. Therefore, when my needs seem to merit more water daily (i.e., during antibiotics, or prolonged exposure to temperatures outside my comfort zone, or exercise), I’m up a creek without a paddle. I’m most fortunate to live and work in temperatures I can handle.

The burden of staying adequately hydrated during/after exerise is a constant challenge for me however. As said elsewhere, a product that I stumbled upon, ENDURE (a low sodium sugar free electrolyte replacement liquid, by same makers, Trace Minerals Research), has blown me away in its GREAT EFFICACY. However the side effects have been harsh enough that I’ve discontinued usage of it. I’m about to experiment with other brands of this type of product since the weather is cooling enough. I so wish the side effects of ENDURE were non-existant, as I felt so healthy and absent of all problematic conditions while taking it.

increased abdominal fat

Overview, Uses, Side Effects, Precautions, Interactions, Dosing and Reviews


Colloidal minerals are taken from clay or shale deposits. Historically, some Native American tribes used clay as medicine. The medicinal use of clay-based products in modern days was first encouraged by a southern Utah rancher. Now colloidal minerals are widely promoted.

Despite safety concerns, colloidal minerals are used as a supplement of trace minerals. Colloidal minerals are also used for many other conditions, but there is no good scientific evidence to support any of its uses.

There isn’t enough information to know how colloidal minerals might work. Despite claims that colloidal minerals are more usable by the body than other minerals, there isn’t any evidence to support this idea.

Uses & Effectiveness ?

Insufficient Evidence for

  • Mineral deficiencies.
  • Low energy.
  • Diabetes.
  • Arthritis.
  • Reducing blood cell clumping.
  • Reversing early cataracts.
  • Turning gray hair dark again.
  • Flushing poisonous heavy metals from the body.
  • Improving general well-being.
  • Reducing aches and pains.
  • Other conditions.

More evidence is needed to rate the effectiveness of colloidal minerals for these uses.

Side Effects

When taken by mouth: Colloidal minerals are POSSIBLY UNSAFE for use. The content of these products varies, depending on the source of the clay. Some products might contain metals such as aluminum, arsenic, lead, barium, nickel, and titanium in potentially harmful amounts. There is also concern that some products might contain radioactive metals.

Special Precautions and Warnings

When taken by mouth: Colloidal minerals are POSSIBLY UNSAFE for use. The content of these products varies, depending on the source of the clay. Some products might contain metals such as aluminum, arsenic, lead, barium, nickel, and titanium in potentially harmful amounts. There is also concern that some products might contain radioactive metals. Pregnancy and breast-feeding: It is POSSIBLY UNSAFE to use colloidal minerals if you are pregnant or breast-feeding. There is concern about the metals some products might contain. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.

Too much iron in the body (hemochromatosis): Hemochromatosis is an inherited disorder. If you have this condition, taking colloidal minerals might make it worse.

Inability to use copper (Wilson’s disease): Wilson’s disease is an inherited disorder. If you have this condition, taking colloidal minerals might make it worse.

Interactions ?

We currently have no information for COLLOIDAL MINERALS overview.


The appropriate dose of colloidal minerals depends on several factors such as the user’s age, health, and several other conditions. At this time there is not enough scientific information to determine an appropriate range of doses for colloidal minerals. Keep in mind that natural products are not always necessarily safe and dosages can be important. Be sure to follow relevant directions on product labels and consult your pharmacist or physician or other healthcare professional before using.

ConcenTrace® Trace Mineral Drops are an all natural product made using ConcenFlo™ technology, our patented natural evaporation. ConcenTrace® is formulated with over 72 naturally occurring, ionized trace minerals sourced from the Great Salt Lake in Utah with 99% sodium removal.

How is ConcenTrace® obtained?

First of all, we do not manufacture ConcenTrace®. This is a wonderful complex of more than 72 naturally formed ionized trace elements, created by Mother Nature herself. For thousands of years, every growing seed and every tree that aspires to it has helped extract minerals by pulling them from the soil to the surface, where they were washed out with little difficulty. However, they do not disappear anywhere, but travel along rivers and streams that flow into oceans and seas, such as the Great Salt Lake in Utah, USA. This lake is unique in that it has no sources and is considered an inland sea. It is for this reason that the Great Salt Lake is saturated with minerals that have accumulated here for thousands of years.

What is strength “ConcenTrace” ?

  • It gives more energy and improves general well-being;
  • Maintains pH balance in the body;
  • Improves blood circulation;
  • Increases disease resistance;
  • Improves the condition of bones, joints and teeth;
  • Enriches the body with vitamins. Minerals help to absorb vitamins;
  • Reduces tension and stress, irritability;
  • Helps normalize bowel activity;
  • Mineralizes drinking water.

Is the product safe?

  • Non-GMO – ConcenTrace® is formulated and approved to comply with non-GMO product standards, which means that established processes (segregation, traceability to help avoid contamination) are strictly implemented to help prevent the presence of genetically modified organisms (GMOs).
  • Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) – ConcenTrace® is pure and natural and has therefore been found safe and suitable for food and beverage applications. According to the rules of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA – Food and drug administration), the status of a safe product is granted only after thorough studies have been carried out by a group of independent experts to assess the safety of food products. TMR, a supplement manufacturer, has selected a panel of independent experts from AIBMR Life Sciences Inc. to obtain product safety validation for ConcenTrace. (Puyallup, Washington) because of their experience, knowledge and practice in food safety validation. The panel includes physicians and two PhD toxicologists with a total of 83 years of experience in the field of toxicology, who have experience as leaders in the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
  • Certified Halal (considered acceptable according to the Islamic religion) – ConcenTrace® has been certified by the Islamic Food and Nutrition Council of the United States (IFANCA).
  • Certified Kosher (Kosher mark) – ConcenTrace® has also been approved by The Rabbinical Council of California as a Kosher product.
  • Suitable for vegans 9Product 0006 – The American Vegetarian Association has recognized ConcenTrace® as a suitable product for a vegetarian diet.

100% natural product made from living minerals.

As mentioned earlier, ConcenTrace® is obtained directly from natural sources that have been formed over thousands of years. Over the years, the minerals have degraded, acquired their most natural state and become naturally electrified, living, biologically active, water-soluble minerals. In addition, the concentration of this solution is exactly the same as the concentration of fluids in the body of a healthy person, without synthetic additives or harmful heavy metals.

Minerals ionized with ConcenTrace® tend to maintain and even improve the pH balance in the body. It is very important to maintain the acid-base balance of the body, as an acidic environment is a good environment for the development of diseases. ConcenTrace® is so important to human health that you can find this formula in any of our quality products. This product is an excellent way to supplement our body with all the elements necessary for the proper and efficient functioning of the body.


For bones, joints – according to studies, the majority of people using the drug received significant results. The condition of bones, joints and teeth improved, unwanted precipitation of calcium salts was removed.

To restore the mineralization of distilled water -¼-1/2 teaspoon of solution per ~ 4 liters of water, will again give the taste of fresh spring water.

Electrolytic Replacement – Provides energy, vitality, and improves overall health by balancing minerals in body fluids. Soluble minerals are electrolytes that transmit electrical impulses in the human body.

Maintains pH balance in the body – The most important nutrients to help maintain the acid-base balance in the body are the minerals found in ConcenTrace®.

Skin & Hair – Can be used orally to nourish from within, or externally to restore natural pH.

Helps to normalize bowel activity – for bowel cleansing.

For Calcium Absorption – Studies show that the use of calcium along with magnesium significantly improves its absorption. ConcenTrace® contains a large amount of magnesium.

Circulatory – Minerals play an important role in the body in decalcification, cleansing and antioxidant functions. Magnesium is needed for every heartbeat. Potassium is involved in the contraction of the heart muscle.

Enriches the body with vitamins – Good nutrition is very important. Vitamins without minerals are INEFFICIENT. Trace elements help to absorb vitamins.

Gardening – Based on studies conducted by Rogers University, as well as other studies conducted by the US Department of Agriculture, it was noticed that there are too few minerals in the soils of America. Year after year, experienced gardeners use ConcenTrace® in their gardens and flower beds. It is also very useful to water it with a solution of houseplants. Try it and you will notice the difference even in your gardens.

For pets – Have you noticed that your pet eats grass or dirt? This is an obvious indicator of a lack of essential minerals. Experienced breeders are already using ConcenTrace® by adding drops to their pet’s food or water.

For sports performance – the majority of participants in the study after receiving the necessary substances into the blood improved sports performance, as well as cardiovascular activity.

For Fitness – After conducting studies with fitness professionals who use ConcenTrace®, they found that their results are excellent.

To improve the composition of carbonated beverages – Recent studies have shown that if you drop a few drops of the solution into a glass of carbonated drink, you can balance it and significantly reduce the harmful effects of carbonates.

For Magnesium Replenishment is an inexpensive source of the highest quality absorbable magnesium on the market.

For cooking – due to the lack of minerals in the soil, we do not get the required amount of minerals from food. ConcenTrace® saturates the food with essential minerals and improves its taste.

A slight crystallization of the product is possible, however this does not affect its quality in any way.

Suggestions for use

This product is all natural, highly concentrated, free of preservatives, flavor enhancers and sweeteners, and has a fairly strong taste. We recommend mixing it with juice or food and dividing the recommended daily dose into portions so that there is no strong mineral aftertaste. Start accustoming yourself to the regime by applying 10 drops for three days in a row. Then increase daily by ½ teaspoon (40 drops) once or twice a day. Children from 2 to 3 years old: apply 1 drop per 2.2 kg of body weight. The recommendations apply to both regular and salt-free foods.

Recommendations for restoring minerals to water

Improve the taste of distilled, purified or reverse osmosis water. Put 20-40 drops into a container with ~ 4 liters of water (2-4 drops per glass). The taste of water becomes no worse than the taste of expensive mineral water, and the composition is supplemented by a complete balanced spectrum of minerals and trace elements with a low salt content. If 20 drops are added to ~4 liters of water, 227 g of the solution can restore the mineralization of more than 700 liters of water.

Sea water for medical purposes, the benefits of sea water for the nasal mucosa

Sea water for medical purposes, the benefits of sea water for the nasal mucosa

According to scientists, all life on our board owes its origin to sea water. Sea water is still the main liquid on planet Earth. It is thanks to her that from space our Earth will look like a “blue” planet, because the seas and oceans cover more than 350 million square kilometers of the earth’s surface.

As the most common liquid, sea water has repeatedly attracted the attention of scientists and has become the object of detailed research. The result of the study was in 1987 the discovery of the French scientist Rene Quinton, who proved the similarity of the composition of sea water with human blood plasma. This hair dryer came as a surprise to most researchers.

A lot of time has passed since then, but there are still more and more confirmations that sea water has truly unique healing properties. More than eighty chemical elements and mineral salts make sea water a solution whose preventive and curative qualities are exceptional.

Q What is the difference between natural sea water and industrial and homemade saline nasal rinses?

Questions that are likely to be asked by many:

  • Is natural sea water for the nose really worth the money?
  • What is the difference between sea water and homemade salt solution?
  • Is there a difference between natural sea water and a reconstituted solution made industrially from sea salt?
  • What is the difference between sea water sold in a pharmacy and water directly from the sea?
  • What is so special about natural sea water?

Let’s try to remove the veil of uncertainty and find answers to the main questions posed

Natural sea water is water that is taken directly from the depths of the sea, and after a stepwise purification system, it is filled into bottles for individual use. It is this approach that makes it possible to use sea water for medical purposes and allows you to preserve all its beneficial properties, natural strength, variety of minerals and trace elements unchanged. Natural sea water is rich in a wide range of mineral salts and microelements, it contains more than 90 varieties of different substances. Traditionally, sea water contains sulfates, bicarbonates, iron, zinc, magnesium, manganese, calcium, potassium, sodium chloride, sulfur and many other trace elements, each of which has its own unique properties and characteristics. This is the main fundamental difference between sea water and ordinary saline solution prepared at home or bought at a pharmacy.

Sea water or “reconstituted solution”

Mor bay water

Today in the pharmacy under the guise of natural marine rinse water, you can often find preparations made industrially from dry sea salt. By analogy with fruit and berry juices, such products can be called “restored”. As a rule, reconstituted sea salt solution differs significantly in its characteristics from natural sea water. Therefore, you need to be very careful when choosing one or another product based on sea water. If in doubt, it is better to clarify the question: “Is this product natural or reconstituted sea water?” – with a pharmacist.

When it comes to preparing a saline solution for nasal irrigation at home from table salt or even sea salt, it is important to remember the following:


Only purified or distilled water should be used to prepare saline solution; the use of untreated, unboiled tap water instead of help can aggravate the course of the disease and provoke the development of infectious complications.


The prepared saline must also be sterile; at home, this is quite difficult to achieve, since it is necessary to be 100% sure of the quality and purity of the salt used, the sterility of dishes, etc.


At home, it is extremely difficult to maintain and maintain a useful concentration of salt (sodium chloride – NaCl) in a solution; as a consequence, there is always the risk of preparing a more concentrated solution that can irritate the nasal mucosa or cause it to dry out.


Homemade saline rinse is not shelf-stable; in fact, each application is a new preparation of the solution, which is extremely inconvenient.


Sea water has a whole list of useful properties, which makes it almost indispensable both from a medical point of view in modern otolaryngology and everyday household use as a hygiene product in every home.

Among the most significant actions of natural sea water for the nose, the following should be noted:

  • Thoroughly rinses all parts of the nasal cavity and nasopharynx, actively cleaning them from bacteria, viruses, allergens, crusts, mucus, dust particles;
  • Provides anti-inflammatory and moisturizing effect, relieves irritation;
  • Reduces swelling of the mucous membrane of the nasal cavity and nasopharynx, helps to restore nasal breathing;
  • Accelerates the processes of regeneration and restoration of the mucous membrane of the nose and nasopharynx, reduces the risk of complications after operations in the nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses;
  • Reduces swelling of the mucous membrane of the nasal cavity and nasopharynx, helps to restore nasal breathing;
  • Increases the therapeutic efficacy of drugs applied to the nasal mucosa, reduces their consumption and the risk of side effects;
  • Increases local immunity.


The degree of salinity of sea water depends mainly on the content of solid salts in it, primarily its saturation with sodium chloride (NaCl). It has been established that the concentration of NaCl in the ocean water of the Atlantic is about 3.5-3.8%. It has been proven that sea water solutions with a sodium chloride concentration of not more than 2.0-2.5% have useful medical properties, and they are used for daily hygiene, prevention and as part of the complex therapy of diseases of the upper respiratory tract. Higher salt content in sea water can “dry out” the nasal mucosa. It is for this reason that sea water in its natural form, without diluting it to the desired concentration, cannot be used for medical purposes.

Today in pharmacies you can find solutions of sea water products based on sea water in two concentrations:

Isotonic solution of sea salt contains the same amount of salts as cells of the human body

Isotonic solution

This is a solution with a NaCl concentration of 0.
