Trace Mineral B-12 - Why Should I Take It?

Trace Minerals-B12 was originally designed for patients with undulant fever (rising and falling fever passed from animal to human from untreated milk products). It contains a lot of manganese, which is depleted by undulant fever. This product also contains zinc, copper, iodine and vitamin B12 – all trace minerals, meaning that our bodies require low amounts of all of these minerals to help perform regulatory and structural functions.

Manganese is an enzyme activator and a ligament strengthener and has been found by doctors in the field to be useful for people with herniated discs. In the case of herniated discs, which are often times extremely painful, taking this supplement can strengthen the ligaments around the disc which will provide more support and decrease discomfort.

Here are some great benefits to regular daily stretching. Hopefully it will make you reconsider!

Mid-day Energy Boost. Just a few minutes of stretching each afternoon can increase blood flow through your entire body, including your brain.

Improve Balance. Research shows that stretching can help with fine motor coordination skills, which definitely can help prevent tripping and falls!
