What is trace element therapy and what are its benefits?

Oligotherapy is a therapy using trace elements, i.e. concentrated and unprocessed micro-nutrients. The trace element comes in powder, drop or tablet form. Each trace element has a beneficial effect on the body, in particular on the immune system and brain function. Moreover, trace elements are particularly indicated in periods of general fatigue, depression, neurological disorders, convalescence, etc.

Why choose oligotherapy?

As its name indicates, oligotherapy is considered a therapy. This means that all people who suffer from an ailment or disease and who wish to use it, must consult their oligotherapist. The latter will then determine the dosage of the trace element according to the patient’s state of health. It is also possible to take dietary trace element supplements without suffering from any ailment, but this requires more precautions.

Thus, oligotherapy can help you to:

  • Improve your general health: if you suffer from skin problems, eczema or oedema, oligotherapy can help you combat them. This works by supporting cell regeneration and strengthening external organs such as skin and hair.
  • Promote weight loss: If you suffer from a weight problem, oligotherapy can help you lose those extra pounds. Indeed, trace elements help to burn fat and use it in the body.
  • Slow down ageing: if you suffer from a lack of energy or memory loss, for example, trace elements can help you deal with these problems.
  • And so on.

Some trace elements to know

Zinc, copper, iodine, calcium, iron, etc. are trace elements that act to prevent the development of certain diseases. For example, zinc and copper are powerful antioxidants. They are involved in the synthesis of many amino acids.

  • Copper: it is particularly involved in the fixation of iron and manganese and in the regulation of the metabolism.
  • Zinc: it is an essential coenzyme for the assimilation of proteins, vitamins (A, B1, B2) and minerals. It is particularly useful in conditions linked to iron deficiency, oxidative stress and fatigue.

Trace element food supplements

Micronutrient supplements are low-molecular weight components that generally contain vitamins, minerals (micronutrients) and proteins. They can be used in trace element therapy to improve your general health or help you lose weight, among other things. Micronutrient supplements can be taken regularly to help maintain good health or when you need a micronutrient supplement. They can be found in pharmaceutical ampoules, particularly in the form of drinkable ampoules with two glass tips.
Each product is different, but they all have one of the following effects:

  • Improve general health: trace element supplements help to improve the functioning of the immune system. They can also help boost your metabolism and help you regain strength when you are very tired.
  • Help prevent disease: these types of supplements are useful in helping to fight diseases, such as diabetes, arthritis, chronic fatigue and depression. They can help reduce joint pain, relieve osteoarthritis and improve resistance to stress. On the other hand, trace element requirements vary according to age, gender and general health.
  • Promote weight loss: trace elements in the form of food supplements help to lose weight. They also support the proper functioning of the skin, the digestive system, the liver, etc. Thus, trace elements are particularly effective in cases of obesity or if you suffer from type 2 diabetes.

Trace elements and their effects on health

The main effect of trace elements is to reinforce the action of micro-nutrients. They also have an anti-oxidant power, act on the healing and the resistance of tissues. In addition, their structure allows them to be fixed in the body without being metabolised. This leads to a rapid and non-cumulative effect. Moreover, trace elements are particularly interesting to take when vitamins or minerals are poorly assimilated or badly used by the body. In all cases, oligotherapy is highly beneficial for the body, and therefore for health in general.
