The Benefits of Core Minerals

Minerals are essential elements for optimal health and well-being. Our bodies couldn’t function without them. They play a role in all physiological processes and help balance and regulate our body chemistry.

Core Minerals delivers a dozen minerals plus ultra-trace minerals to help fill gaps in the diet and provide whole-body nutritional support. It also supports the protection and renewal benefits activated by the cell-signaling InCelligence Complex in Vita-Antioxidant. USANA’s cell-signaling technology promotes cellular resilience and health during the normal lifespan of the cell to help you meet your unique health needs.*

The Science of Core Minerals

Core Minerals is an excellent source of magnesium. This essential mineral is a co-factor in more than 300 enzyme systems. They control various natural reactions in the body, including:

  • Metabolizing glucose and macronutrients*
  • Supporting the production of cellular energy*
  • Producing protein, DNA, RNA, and glutathione*
  • Maintaining healthy nerve, muscle, and cardiovascular function*

Magnesium is also important for using the calcium found in Core Minerals and the diet. Calcium is the most common mineral in the body, and is essential for healthy bones, teeth, muscle, and nerve function. Having enough calcium isn’t the problem for most people. It’s properly using what you have. So magnesium’s interactions with calcium are important to the structural development of bones. *

The magnesium-and-calcium blends in Core Minerals are composed partly from the ascorbate forms of the nutrients. Ascorbate is a source of another essential micronutrient: vitamin C.

Core Minerals contains high-potency iodine. The mineral is a crucial component in the body’s normal production of thyroid hormones. These hormones help regulate metabolism, growth, reproduction, and the synthesis of protein. Supplemental iodine is especially important for those on a vegetarian diet, avoiding seafood, or restricting their iodized-salt intake.*

Core Minerals is high in zinc, a component of hundreds of enzymes and a mineral that acts as an antioxidant.* Zinc is involved in many processes throughout the body:

  • Supporting normal carbohydrate, fat, and protein metabolism.*
  • Promoting healthy immune function and healthy vision.*
  • Supporting healthy DNA and RNA replication.*
  • Important for supporting our body’s natural healing process for minor cuts.*
  • Aiding healthy bone structure development.*
  • Supporting connective tissue formation and helps to maintain healthy skin.*

The formula’s high-potency selenium aids the body’s natural ability to regenerate glutathione, an endogenous antioxidant—one made inside the body. Selenium is important in thyroid hormone metabolism, and studies have shown selenium’s importance for maintaining prostate health.

Core Minerals is rich in copper, which is a critical component of the enzyme superoxide dismutase (SOD)— an endogenous antioxidant. Copper also helps form hemoglobin and is also essential for collagen synthesis. So it also plays a role in connective tissue formation.*

Manganese (not to be confused with magnesium) is important for protein and glucose metabolism, and supports normal brain function. It helps maintain healthy connective tissues, bones, arteries, and other organs. Manganese also activates numerous enzymes and supports endogenous antioxidant activity.* Core Minerals is a good source of manganese.

The high-potency chromium in the formula is an important component of the glucose tolerance factor (GTF). This helps maintain healthy glucose metabolism already in the normal range.*

Core Minerals is an excellent-source of molybdenum. This trace mineral is an important co-factor for a number of enzymes and is necessary for the metabolism of sulfur-containing amino acids. It also helps the body metabolize proteins and helps maintain strong teeth.*

Core Minerals also contains boron, vanadium, and silicon. Boron supports the body’s ability to use calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus. It also plays a role in healthy brain function. Vanadium helps support healthy serum glucose levels, provided they are already healthy. And, maintaining a good balance of silicon in the body is important for maintaining strong bones and connective tissues.*

N-acetyl l-cysteine helps support the production of endogenous antioxidants and detoxification compounds like glutathione, which are additionally activated by the Incelligence Complex in Vita-Antioxidant.

For easy swallowing, Core Minerals has a soy-free, sunflower-based coating.

    I have been an athlete my entire life. I was a division 1 athlete at Purdue University- I can honestly say this is an incredibly effective product. I believe what I noticed the most was increased energy and mood. I’ve used many different vitamin supplements but nothing seemed to get it right but the USANA triple action cellular nutrition system. They found a lifetime customer in me, could not be happier with this!

    These vitamins give me extra energy and I only take one if each a day, which is half the suggested dosage. If I take even a half of one early in the evening, I will be awake most of the night; so I recommend taking it early in the day unless you want to be up all night.

    I’ve been taking Usana Essentials for a couple of years now. I used to take herbal supplements before and I can say that the Essentials makes me feel stronger and healthier. I am so blessed to have not gone through the hospital due to medical conditions. I know that the food that I eat every day are not that healthy but I also make sure that I don’t eat too much of unhealthy food.
    You will absolutely get excellent quality of vitamins and minerals. These Essentials vitamin, mineral and antioxidant supplements are a combination of two products: Mega Antioxidant™ (vitamin and antioxidant supplements) and Chelated Mineral™ (multimineral supplement). Using both of these, they provide a broad spectrum of vitamins, minerals, and other plant nutrients that form the foundation of USANA nutritional system. (13 vitamins, 13 minerals and 20 powerful antioxidants)

    Here are some of my personal experience after using this product:
    1. I used to feel tired and exhausted every day after work. I live a very active lifestyle. I’m very busy at work from morning til afternoon, then I go to the gym to work-out for a couple of hours, then cook at home and still do some more work from home. I noticed the difference that when I take the Essentials vitamins, I don’t get tired easily even before going to bed. It feels that my energy is not draining and my mind is still alert. Even after I wake up, I don’t feel that I still need to get more sleep.
    2. I used to get easily interrupted when I sleep and most of the time dogsleep. When I used the Essentials, I’ve had very good and sound sleep.
    3. Better endurance. I play basketball and I notice that I can last more minutes that I used to have before.
    I would highly recommend this product to anyone who has a very active lifestyle. I believe nowadays that we don’t get all the vitamins and nutrients from all the food we eat daily. Hence, the necessity to take food supplements everyday to ensure we keep our immune system strong and have a healthy body.
