What Are Micro-nutrients?
Micro-nutrients are the nutrients that we need in small quantities in order to live our lives to the fullest. They include nutrients such as copper, zinc, iron, cobalt, manganese, and chromium, among others. It is estimated that even among people who eat what is considered a healthy diet, that over two billion people world-wide do not get the proper amount of micro-nutrients that are needed for healthy body function.
The average multivitamin contains around 33 ingredients, broken down into components such as iron, riboflavin, and iodine. The average Standard Process vitamins contain thousands of nutrients and micronutrients. One example is the multivitamin named " Catalyn."
Catalyn contains all the vitamins and minerals you are familiar with, plus some you aren't. Instead of singling out the nutrients, Catalyn contains whole foods such as bovine liver and kidney, pea vine, mushroom, and carrot root.
Did you know that carrot root alone has over 200 known nutrients and micro-nutrients. That one ingredient has over six times the number of nutrients found in a standard multivitamin. Those 200 nutrients and micro-nutrients are just the ones that can be identified. Even scientists do not know the full amount of trace micro-nutrients that are found in whole foods.
