A good mineral balance can increase your energy level, immune system, nerve impulse transmission, and reduce free radical damage to your organs and cell DNA. Fish oils with omega-3s are part of the structure of the brain and nerve tissue, and help maintain a healthy heart. Combined in one capsule, Seagate Marine Minerals with omega-3s provides essential nutrients for those people who do not eat enough fish and who eat too much processed foods, lacking in mineral content.
Seagate Marine Minerals contains all the ocean minerals because it is made from the ocean: seawater rich in all mineral nutrients; seaweed, an excellent source of calcium, iodine, zinc and copper; plus sardine bones, nature's own natural organic concentrator of the minerals found in the sea. These plants and fish species inhabit a level of the marine food chain that is still free of any detectable level of man-made chemical contaminants. In addition, Seagate adds 40 mg/capsule of fish oil rich in omega-3s to this concentrate.
Applications: Minerals are an essential part of life playing a role in a variety of applications that include:
Zinc, selenium, manganese, germanium and copper protect our cell membranes and DNA from free radical damage caused by the unstable OH- (hydroxyl) molecules generated by our body during respiration.
Iron and copper are important for the formation of red blood cells and for the transport of oxygen to our cells. Calcium and phosphorus are crucial to normal bone development.
Calcium and sodium are essential for the transmission of nerve impulses and muscle contraction Lithium and magnesium are useful for treating stress.
Raw Material Source: The sardines and anchovies are captured along the Pacific coast of Baja California, far from any river or city that might be a source of contaminants. The seawater and seaweed are taken from a remote bay along the Baja California coastline, also far from any man-made source of contamination. These three raw materials are the foundation of that supports life in the oceans, the base of the marine food chain rich in nutrients and mineral content.
Processing: Seagate concentrates these 3 raw materials - seawater, seaweed, and fish bones - in large stainless steel vacuum dryers and spray dryers in their own factory. The sardines and anchovies are cooked and de-boned, separating the skeletons from the meat. Some of the natural sodium chloride (salt) contained in the seaweed and seawater is removed in order to maintain this product as a low-sodium source. Seagate is continuing to develop new technology and techniques to further concentrate the mineral levels from these raw materials. There is no better source of minerals than the oceans, the source of life on our planet.
