Specific Trace Elements are vital for the healthy functioning of every cell in the body.

Without them in their correct catalytic (active) form and precise quantity, other nutrients cannot be activated (assimilated) which leads to degeneration and disease.

What is a Trace Element?

The following list of trace elements are needed in a small (catalytic) amount - 0.02% - in the body:

Zinc, Copper, Nickel, Manganese, Cobalt, Iron, Lithium, Potassium, Molybdenum, Selenium, Chromium, Iodine, Vanadium, Iron.

They are not to be confused with macro elements which are needed in large amounts - 99.98% - for the construction of connective tissue: 


Hydrogen, Oxygen, Carbon, Calcium, Phosphorus, Magnesium, Potassium, Sulphur, Sodium, Nitrogen, and Silicon, 













The essential function of trace elements in the body was recognised as far back as 6000 BC; and in the 16th century Paracelsus, who introduced chemistry into medicine, pioneered the theory that the human body must have a precise balance of trace elements/minerals to maintain optimum strength. 

For more than 50 years, the CRAO has identified the most effective form and method of trace element application. Integrating current scientific systems with the research and clinical experience of those early pioneers has culminated in a consistently effective and safe natural remedy that is: fast-acting; efficiently assimilated by the cells of the body; and does not provoke toxicity or produce a mineral imbalance which can contribute to inflammation, degeneration, and disease.
