Trace Mineral Complex
Trace minerals are essential for many processes in the body. Soil depletion and a busy lifestyle can mean that vital trace vitamins and minerals can be left out of the daily diet. Manganese contributes to the normal formation of connective tissue and aids in the maintenance of normal bones. Manganese also has a role in the protection of cells from oxidative stress. This 'oxidative stress' appears to be a major factor in many human diseases.
Selenium contributes to the maintenance of normal hair and nails, the normal function of the immune system, normal thyroid function and for the protection of cells from oxidative stress. Selenium also contributes to normal spermatogenesis (the creation of sperm).
Copper contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism, the maintenance of normal connective tissues, to the normal pigmentation of hair and skin, the normal function of the nervous and immune systems, and for the protection of cells from oxidative stress.
Chromium contributes to the maintenance of normal blood glucose levels.

special and specialist
Viridian Nutrition was founded in 1999 in Northamptonshire, United Kingdom, by Cheryl Thallon. Vegetarian since she was 18, Cheryl started her career in the natural products industry working in health food stores from the age of 21. After training in publishing, Cheryl was made editor of Natural Food Trader magazine in 1988 where she remained for three years, visiting and reporting on health food stores and natural product supply companies around the world. This broad experience of the entire natural products industry led to a specialisation into food supplements when in 1991 she joined Solgar Vitamins - an American supplement company - first as Marketing Director and then as UK Managing Director.
Previously a family-owned and managed company, Solgar Vitamins, was sold to a large pharmaceutical corporation in early 1999. At this point, Cheryl left to set up Viridian Nutrition, basing the company on the fundamental principles of purity, environment and charity. Surrounding herself with qualified and expert technical advisors, Viridian Nutrition launched in December 1999 with just 24 products. The company now offers sales, technical and marketing expertise to support more than 180 products and is available in more than a dozen countries.
