Thorne Pic-Mins 90 VCaps
In 1984, Thorne was the first dietary supplement manufacturer to introduce zinc picolinate, and Thorne is still the exclusive manufacturer of the trace mineral picolinates – iron, copper, selenium, molybdenum, boron, and vanadium. Picolinic acid is a natural organic acid produced in the body by conversion of the amino acid tryptophan. Found in high concentrations in breast milk, picolinic acid helps in mineral absorption by infants. Studies indicate that mineral picolinates provide superior absorption, even when compared to other "well-absorbed" mineral chelates. Pic-Mins combines the important trace minerals zinc, selenium, manganese, molybdenum, boron, and vanadium, with UltraChrome, Thorne's patented and highly bioavailable chromium complex.
Research on trace minerals has demonstrated their importance in human health. Trace minerals are cofactors for most enzymes in the body and are essential for proper hormone and neurotransmitter function. Deficiencies of specific trace minerals can have an adverse impact on cardiovascular health, bone health, fertility, cognitive health, and immunity. Even mild deficiencies in trace minerals can result in poor growth and development. Many dietary trace minerals are found in fruits and vegetables; however, mineral depletion of the soil has rendered much of the produce we buy deficient in these essential nutrients. Because of these circumstances, supplementation may be indicated.

Dr. Michael Lebowitz D.C. Recommends:
This product is very similar to Trace Minerals except the minerals are in picolinate form (except for chromium, which is in the same form as UltraChrome). Pic-Mins is very useful for patients with musculoskeletal injuries to help rebuild muscles and ligaments. It will also neutralize some positive AK tests for chemical and mental hypersensitivity. Dr. Michael Lebowitz tests on all patients who test negative on Basic Nutrients, Biomins, Citramins, and Trace Minerals and supplement accordingly.
