Trace minerals are essential for optimal body functioning. ConcenTrace is pure sea water with most of its sodium removed. It is excellent for remineralizing purified (demineralized) water and for general supplementation. We once tried to remineralize our water with Celtic salt, but had muscle cramps shortly thereafter. With the sodium removed however, our bodies receive the water very easily, and we even frequently feel a burst of energy after drinking it.
The minerals in ConcenTrace are highly ionic, and therefore help optimize your body's electrical system. 26 times more concentrated than other liquid trace mineral supplements, ConcenTrace contains dozens of minerals in a balance natural to the body. Just 40 drops give you the equivalent of 1/2 cup of sea water (with 99.5% of the sodium removed using a natural process). Our preference, however, is to use Concentrace to taste which varies by the person (too much and the water gets bitter). Some like 1 drop per 8 oz, which imparts essentially no taste; others like more.
Utah's Great Salt Lake, where ConcenTrace comes from, is the largest body of concentrated sea water in the world and is particularly rich in certain minerals and trace minerals like magnesium, selenium, lithium, and boron which are vitally important to human health. The part of the Lake that ConcenTrace is harvested has been dammed off from the rest of the lake for over 80 years, and remains very pure. The purity of ConcenTrace is confirmed by independent testing.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Is there an expiration date?
A. Due to the purity of this product, there is no expiration date.The minerals act as a natural preservative. The minerals do not lose their potency over time.
Q. Is this product really pure - are there metals/toxins?
A. There are no more metals than you would find in organic produce. Because metals occur in the earth's crust naturally, they appear in all foods to some extent in infinitesimal amounts. Concentrace is safe and an assay is available upon request.
Q. How much do I use?
A. The instructions on the label recommend 10-20 drops per glass but we find that many people prefer much less. Let your taste be your guide - we like 1-2 drops per 8-10 oz glass. At this rate, the 4 oz bottle will last 3-6 months and the large bottle 5-10 months.
Q. Is this good for restructuring reverse osmosis/distilled water?
A. Yes - 1 drop of this product will put about 30 ppm (parts per million) of ionic minerals back into an 8 oz glass of water. This will in turn tend to shift the pH toward the alkaline spectrum.
Q. Why are trace minerals important?
A. Trace minerals are needed by the body in very small amounts for important metabolic functions. If they are absent as is often the case due to soil depletion in both conventional and organic practices, the body cannot perform certain functions.
Q. What minerals are contained in ConcenTrace?
A. Magnesium, Chloride, Sodium, Potassium, Sulfate and Boron, plus the following in naturally occuring trace amounts: Calcium, Carbonate, Bromide, Iodine, Rubidium, Scandium, Phosphorus, Nickel, Strontium, Cobalt, Zinc, Titanium, Lanthanum, Cerium, Barium, Copper, Iron, Silicon, Yttrium, Molybdenum, Tin, Gallium, Gold, Silver, Cesium, Beryllium, Vanadium, Dysprosium, Holmium, Terbium, Praseodymium, Lutetium, Gadolinium, Samarium, Bismuth, Ytterbium, Erbium, Europium and Neodymium
