Trace Minerals Update

For a few weeks I made a valient effort with the Concentrace brand minerals. It was really hard to get the bolus dose in him. I think it happened once. The problem is that it tastes horrible, like gag and scrub your mouth bad. I had figured out how much I could get away with hiding in different foods and drinks and would tally it up on the dry erase board in the kitchen.

I stopped noticing improvements and changes so I splurged and switched back to Now brand raspberry flavor. All I have to do is measure 3Tbs and add a little water into a cup. He drinks it down and I don’t have to worry about it at all the rest of the day.

We’ve been at this a few days so I am hoping I will start seeing changes again within a week. Having seen improvements and then it stopping with the lower dose makes me confident in the bolus dose. A lot of people balk at the idea of giving a child a larger dose than an adult, but the child is showing signs of deficiency and is still growing. It makes sense with science and lay logic!
