What Are Minerals?
Minerals are solid, crystalline substances like diamond, copper, quartz, etc. and they are not of animal or vegetable origin like vitamins are. They come from the soil. There is a sub-group called nutritional minerals that you are used to, like calcium, magnesium, and potassium. There are 21 vitamins, with 13 being essential. Then there are trace minerals like iron, manganese, copper, iodine and zinc (there are 72), but these are needed in very small amounts, however, they are very important for optimum health. Statistically, you are not getting all the minerals or vitamins your body needs.
Why are minerals important to your body?
Here is a short list of the systems in your body that utilize minerals. Research shows that imbalances or deficiencies in mineral nutrition can affect these systems: Immune System, Energy Production, Hormone System, Vitamin Production, Blood Production, Enzyme Systems, Skeletal System.
Not all mineral formulations are created equal.
You want to fortify with Chelated minerals. Basically, it means the mineral is bonded with an amino acid to form a ring around it to improve absorption by 20 times. There are three types of chelated processes. 1. Proteinates – it’s a hydrolyzed protein. Chelated to a peptide. WIO doesn’t use this type because the proteins come from soy and the molecule is too big to be absorbed effectively by your body.
- Polysaccharides – they are chelated with a sugar which is great for absorption, but the molecule is still too large so it doesn’t get to your cells very well.
- Amino Acid - WiO uses glycinate which is the smallest amino acid and keeps the mineral from being destroyed and is small enough to be absorbed better than any other formulation.
WiO has partnered with Albion Minerals who hold over 100 patents which have created the world’s most effective minerals available, because you’re worth it.
You Have a Right to Know
WiO has a meal replacement shake that only uses wholefood vitamins (that’s rare and a game changer) and the world's most absorbed minerals. You would be doing yourself a huge favor if you started fueling your body with the most nutrient-dense shake gram for gram than any other.
So many formulations skimp on the quality of their products. At WiO our perspective is – either create the best or acquire it. We believe if we give you better ingredients you will feel the difference and want to give you and your family the most effective way to improve or maintain your good health.
