The life-giving properties of trace minerals is not a result of any single trace mineral working on its own, but instead, a result of many trace minerals working together. An excess of one trace element can lead to imbalances in another, resulting in disease rather than good health.

The following are just few of the many coordinated biological functions of the minerals found in HCI CMD:

Magnesium is often coupled with Calcium because of its synergistic effects (it helps the body absorb the calcium better). Calcium levels beyond normal result to calcification that can cause the blood vessels to become brittle and eventually break. That’s why HCI CMD contains sufficient amount of Magnesium needed to neutralize the effects of calcification. Boron aids in the proper metabolism of the essential minerals calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus. Phosphorus combines with calcium in the bones and teeth. Like calcium, phosphorus is contained in the skeletal structure and connective tissues. Potassium works with sodium to regulate the body’s water balance and helps to dispose of body wastes and aids in allergy treatment. Together with potassium and chloride, sodium maintains fluid distribution and pH balance. With potassium, sodium also helps control muscle contraction and nerve function. Zinc maintains the body’s alkaline balance; helps in normal tissue function; aids in the digestion and metabolism of phosphorus. Iron combines with protein and copper in making hemoglobin. Copper is necessary for the absorption & utilization of Iron. Cobalt also helps form red blood cells. Germanium helps in increasing the body’s ability to absorb calcium from foods. Molybdenum has been used to detoxify copper in cases such as Wilson’s disease where levels are too high. Also, excessive amounts of calcium, zinc, and manganese can inhibit iron absorption.”

The following detailed discussions pertain to the biological functions and health benefits from the Major Elements found in HCI CMD:


Magnesium is the fourth most abundant cation (positively charged atom) in the body, with 60% in the bone and 40% distributed equally between muscle and non-muscular soft tissue. (Deficiency Symptoms: may result in calcium depletion, heart spasms, nervousness, muscular excitability, confusion, insomnia, rapid heart beat, seizures, asthma, chronic fatigue, kidney stones). Here are some of the important roles of Magnesium in the body.


Calcium – It is the most abundant mineral in the body, comprising 2% of body weight. Calcium is needed for developing and maintaining the rigidity of bones. It also contributes to the formation of intracellular cement and the cell membrane, and regulation of nervous excitability and muscular contraction. About 90 percent of calcium is stored in bone, where it can be reabsorbed by blood and tissue.

(Deficiency Symptoms: May result in arm and leg muscles spasms, softening of bones, back and leg cramps, brittle bones and nails, rickets, poor growth, osteoporosis (a deterioration of the bones), rheumatoid arthritis, aching joints, asthma, cataracts, eczema, gallstone, elevated blood cholesterol, heart palpitations, hypertension, insomnia, tooth decay,depression) Here are some of the important roles of Calcium in the body.


Chloride – A natural salt of the mineral chlorine, chloride works with sodium and potassium to help maintain the proper distribution and pH of all bodily fluids and encourages healthy nerve and muscle function.

(Deficiency Symptoms: hair and tooth loss, chronic diarrhea and vomiting, trauma, renal disease, hypotension (low blood pressure). In infants, can lead to failure-to- survive anorexia) Here are some of the important roles of Chloride in the body.


Phosphorus is the second most plentiful “essential mineral” in the body and is a key component of DNA, RNA, bones, and teeth, and many other compounds required for life. It is present in many foods, especially in milk and combines with calcium in the bones and teeth.

 Here are some of the important roles of Phosphorus in the body.


Potassium is the third most abundant mineral in the body, after calcium and phosphorus. It is critical to maintain proper levels in the body. Potassium works closely with sodium and chloride to maintain fluid distribution and pH balance and to augment nerve-impulse transmission, muscle contraction, and regulation of heartbeat and blood pressure.

 Here are some of the important roles of Potassium in the body.


All bodily fluids including blood, tears, and perspiration contain sodium. Most of the sodium in our daily diets is from table salt. Among many other sources are processed foods, soft drinks, meats, shellfish, condiments, snack foods, food additives, and over-the-counter laxatives. Individuals generally consume far too much sodium. A single teaspoon of salt contains 2000 mg – four times the daily minimum – but average daily consumption in the U. S. ranges from 3000 mg to 7000 mg. Keeping sodium intake within reasonable limits is critical for long term health. When sodium levels are persistently elevated, the body losses potassium and retains water, making blood pressure rise.

 (Deficiency Symptoms: lack of sodium may cause fall in blood pressure that could result in shock, decreased blood pressure, indigestion, joint stiffness, rheumatism, neuralgia, bladder ailments.)

 Here are some of the important roles of Sodium in the body.


 Accounting for some 10% of the body’s mineral content, sulfur is part of every cell, especially in the protein-rich tissues of hair, nails, muscle, and skin. It is an acid-forming mineral that is part of the chemical structure of the amino acids methionine, cysteine, taurine, and glutathione.

(Deficiency Symptoms: lack of sulfur may cause acne, growth retardation, and lowered resistance to disease) sodium may cause fall in blood pressure that could result in shock, decreased blood pressure, indigestion, joint stiffness, rheumatism, neuralgia, bladder ailments.)

 Here are some of the important roles of Sulfur the body.

      Sulfur is needed for the synthesis of collagen, a principal protein that gives the skin its structural integrity.
