A comprehensive multi-mineral formula with copper and iron. Who should be taking a multiple mineral? Individuals at high risk for mineral deficiencies include the elderly due to deteriorating digestion, children and teenagers because of poor diet, individuals with eating disorders, and anyone suffering from a chronic disease. Taking certain prescription medications can also result in a mineral deficiency. Because the mineral content in fruits and vegetables depends on the soil the crop is grown in, even a healthy individual who maintains a good diet can be at risk for a mineral deficiency because of mineral-depleted soil.
