A Typical Analysis of Sea Minerals

You will find below a 'Typical' Analysis of Sea Minerals, and note that it says that "prior and additional testing has confirmed the presence of other Trace Elements in naturally occurring concentrations". It costs millions of dollars to test for every element and, frankly, I just don't have that type of money! There is a site on the composition of Sea Water found here http://www.seafriends.org.nz/oceano/seawater.htm#composition   

It is pretty good with its information, but to truly understand you would have to find out the daily nutritional requirements for each element and then check that against the analysis below. Suffice to say that Trace means Trace, minute parts per billion. Our bodies use what it needs and excretes the rest through the skin, urine and faeces.

The most common element in the Sea is Magnesium (Mg). Australian soils are sadly low in this element compared to other continents. To find out what minerals do for you please look at our page  www.amenas.com.au/minerals-and-their-functions/   This explains the use of the most common dietary minerals.

NOTE: These results are from analytical testing conducted by Balint Analitika in 2004. Prior and additional testing has confirmed the presence of other Trace Elements in naturally occurring concentrations.
