Pic-Mins from Thorne Research contains several picolinate minerals exclusively manufactured by their company.
A Unique Trace Mineral Complex Designed for Superior Absorption
Provides Seven Essential Trace Minerals
Our Best Absorbed Trace Mineral Formula
Cofactors for Numerous Biochemical Enzymatic Reactions
Contains Several Picolinate Minerals Exclusive to Thorne Research
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.
