Multi Mineral Mix 405 g -
The idea of this preparation is to provide essential minerals in decent amounts, assuming one gets nothing from the diet. The dose is one gram per 2 stone of body weight up to a maximum of 5 grams. However, once a stoneage diet is established then half this dose would be more than adequate. It also contains vitamins D and B12 because these are so often lacking in standard preparations.
All these minerals are salts and so should be taken with plenty of water - at least 1/2 pint (250ml) per gram.
MMMs can be used with sea salt or table salt as a rehydration mix for gastroenteritis or dehydration in the proportion: one litre (2 pints) of water with a half teaspoon of salt (i.e. 2 grams), 1 scoop of Multi mineral Mix (ie 1 gram) and 4 grams of ascorbic acid (2 scoops) taken ad lib. Drink at least 2-3 litres (4 or 6 pints) over the 24 hours, more if diarrhoea is severe.
PLEASE NOTE: This product is suitable for vegetarians but NOT VEGANS.

Although the product does not contain Gluten we do not label the product as 'Gluten Free' as we would need to guarantee the product has been kept away from Gluten at every stage of the supply chain or test the batch for Gluten content. We would expect the product to be tolerated by coeliacs.
Calcium chloride occasionally may not dissolve very well and may resemble small, clear shards.
After manufacture the product looks a light yellow; however, due to manufacturing conditions at different times of the year it can be affected by the weather, e.g. high humidity. This can cause the product to appear 'claggy' and darken so the appearance of the B12, which is red, stands out more. This is not detrimental to the product in any way.
MMM'S contain some form of citrate as an inclusion from the iron ferric ammonium.
Excellent product Verified Purchase
An excellent product that provides essential minerals we no longer get from food and that we need to ensure we get, especially as we grow older.

A great product with all essential minerals Verified Purchase
I like being able to have this in a glass of water with some D-Ribose which compliments it. The advantages are that I have that extra glass of water and I'm not having fillers etc I definitely prefer it to tablets.

Absolute Must Have
I've been using this for a few years now and it has made a huge difference. It has moved me from severe to moderate on it's own. I'd recommend that everyone use this, not just people with mecfs.
