Vitamains & Minerals Questions
martayfitness posted:
Hi there I'm brand new to the member portion but have viewed the site a few times over the years.

I have questions here for the Doctors & Experts.

2 part A. Do Minerals Absorb through the skin like Vitami?

B. If so, which Minerals & Vitamins actually do?

SO much is said by advertisers & so-called "Experts" pushing products, that it's hard most of the time to figure out what is b.s. & what is legitimate.
I am into wellness & natural/organic foods & earth friendly skin & body care so this is why i was wondering. I have clients that have asked this.

Thanks in advance,
