Some Facts about MIN
Vitamins and Minerals are essential tools in everyday human physiology. They function as coenzymes and cofactors that are involved in almost all biochemical processes in the body. In essence, vitamins and minerals are crucial to healthy living.
Before the days of “fast food” and “empty” calories, these vitamins and minerals were found naturally in our food. However, in modern days, as the average diet consists mostly of processed, manufactured food, where the levels of these critical nutrients are relatively lower, there is overwhelming scientific evidence to support the intake of dietary supplements that are rich in vitamins and minerals [1-5].
Agel MIN is a proprietary formulation of vitamins and minerals that provides 100% of the RDI (Recommended Daily Intake) of almost all the essential vitamins and as much as 50% of the RDI of most of the essential minerals. More importantly, the availability of these vitamins and minerals is enhanced due to the revolutionary gel technology employed in the MIN formulation. The vitamins and minerals are dissolved and suspended in the gel, resulting in immediate availability for absorption by the digestive tract.
There are some who advocate using mega doses of various vitamins, presuming that if some is good, more is better. However, there is growing scientific evidence that too much of a good thing can be harmful [6-7]. Therefore, Agel’s formulation for a moderate dose of readily available vitamins and minerals is ideal.

A MIN Bibliography
If you would like to review associated publications in more detail we suggest you use PubMed, the information portal provided by the US National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health. PubMed is a service of the U.S. National Library of Medicine that includes over 17 million citations from MEDLINE and other life science journals for biomedical articles back to the 1950s.
To find a reference on PubMed, copy the reference for the article you want to read from the Agel Bibliography page and paste it in the “Search PubMed for” entry box on the following web page: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/sites/entrez?db=pubmed
Gel Technology: Do people actually consume the nutrients that will improve their health?
A few pills here, a glass of juice there. But before long, pills get bothersome and glass bottles are less than portable.
