Citramins contains all the essential minerals bound to citric acid, in a formula that includes copper and iron. Besides providing a well-absorbed chelate, citric acid has potential health benefits of its own. As an important Kreb's cycle intermediate (also called the citric acid cycle and important for energy production), citric acid is essential for metabolism in all living organisms. Citric acid has been shown to inhibit precipitation of calcium oxalate and phosphate in the urine. Since magnesium, calcium, and potassium also have that potential, this combination in one supplement provides added benefit.
Individuals at high risk for mineral deficiencies include the elderly due to deteriorating digestion, children and teenagers because of poor diet, individuals with eating disorders, and those suffering from chronic diseases. Certain prescription medications can also result in mineral deficiencies. The amount of minerals in fruits and vegetables depends on the soil they are grown in; therefore, even healthy individuals who maintain a good diet can be at risk for mineral deficiencies because of mineral-depleted soil.
Many companies provide minerals that are chelated, or bound to, whole proteins or peptides from potentially allergenic substances like soy, calling them amino acid chelates. Thorne's individual minerals are chelated to amino acids or organic acids via a molecular reaction that provides a predictable, high quality, hypoallergenic chelate.

I didn't feel well after taking these and my joints felt a little sore. I thought initially it was because I was already getting too much of one of the minerals (even though I wasn't supplementing any other minerals). Now I suspect it could have been proof that the product was working well, and these necessary minerals were replacing other harmful elements, and the "dextox" action was making me feel ill. I don't really know, but I would suggest starting with a small amount of this supplement to see how you react to it at first.
