A Perfect Balance
Acid/Base Balance -- A Perfect 7
While ingredients like Vitamin C are very acidic and, alone, can cause stomach upset, Cheraskin's formulation balances these with the mineral supplements. When you grind up a handful of Earth Touch Essentials and dissolve them in water, the result is pH7 -- the perfect balance between acid and base, the same as drinking water.
Synergistically Balanced Minerals
The bioavailability or absorption of many minerals can be enhanced when taken simultaneously with other minerals or vitamins. This synergistic effect is important in maintaining a perfect balance in the body. Certain minerals are needed in extra quantities allowing for the fact that a portion of these minerals are used up in the process of aiding in the absorption of other minerals.
Examples of Synergistic Minerals are:
IRON - Iron is better absorbed by the body when combined with copper, vitamin C and various B complex members.
MAGNESIUM Vitamin B-6, calcium and phosphorous all work together to effect its assimilation.
ZINC Vitamin A and copper enhance zinc absorption.
CALCIUM Calcium bioavalibility is greatly enhanced by the presence of vitamin D. Magnesium and phosphorous are also important in calcium absorption.
MANGANESE Vitamin B-1, and vitamin C are used in the body to help facilitate the absorption of manganese.
SELENIUM Vitamin E, Vitamin C, and selenium are important antioxidants and work to together synergistically in the body.
