Dr. Darrin Starkey, Director of Education at Trace Minerals Research, emphasizes the need for a wholesome, balanced diet and the challenges people face to get necessary nutrients from the food we eat. Of particular concern are the trace elements not present in processed foods.

Darrin explains, "We are typically familiar with macrominerals, calcium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, and sodium. But trace minerals are often overlooked and neglected because they're needed in small amounts. So, in answer to that question, they're the trace amounts of these elements that our bodies need that make up 0.01% of our makeup and yet an essential part of our health that we often don't focus on until we're in a crisis."

"But often, because of our society, we're such a reactive society today instead of being proactive. We should wait until we're in crisis before asking the questions. But often, being proactive, of being able to put and supplement these trace minerals back into our diets, is a huge point. If we look at the variety of available foods and how we can support local growers and the waters we choose to drink, we have a lot of opportunities to minimize these deficiencies. In the society in which we live, it's critical that we put these trace minerals back in on a daily basis." 

"At Trace Minerals, our niche is putting these trace minerals back into all of our products. But our foundational product is our ConcenTrace Trace Mineral drops, and that's the foundational product that most people are familiar with. We want our listeners and consumers to understand that we're trying to do our part in the delivery system of these products. Because, as you well know, trace minerals don't taste good in a pure, concentrated state. They're very strong. So, we have to learn how to dilute those. And for those with sensitive taste buds, we offer them in tablet form, capsule form, and effervescent form. We're doing our part in helping the consumer find a way to deliver these daily that makes it enjoyable."
