OGDEN, UTAH, Sept. 9, 2015—Trace Minerals Research (TMR), a leading provider of trace mineral based supplements for over 40 years, continues to be the nation’s number one selling trace mineral brand in the trace mineral category, the number one selling liquid magnesium brand in the liquid magnesium category, and the fastest growing liquid magnesium brand in the natural products channel according to research data compiled by SPINS, an information research and consulting company who specializes in the natural products industry in the US market.
The data collected by SPINS in natural products supermarkets across the United States shows that from July 2014 to July 2015, TMR branded products in the trace mineral category increased by 17 percent. But what made TMR owners most excited was the 87 percent increase in sales in the liquid magnesium category, making TMR the fastest growing liquid magnesium brand in the industry.
“This was the most exciting SPINS report we’ve received since we started getting them back in 2010,” said Matt Kilts, Managing Partner of TMR. “The first report we ever received proved that we were the number one trace mineral brand in America. Last year’s report proved that we were also the number one selling liquid magnesium brand. This year’s report shows that our sales and market share continue to increase, with an especially steep increase in the liquid magnesium category. This means that we are making a difference in people’s health and they are feeling that difference. That’s what makes it all worth it and we couldn’t be more pleased.”
The stars of the SPINS data include Mega-Mag and Ionic Magnesium in the liquid magnesium category and Electrolyte Stamina Power Pak Non-GMO Mixed Berry flavor and Ionic Fulvic Acid in the trace mineral category.

The top performers of TMR products across the board were Non-GMO Mixed Berry Power Pak and Ionic Fulvic Acid, boasting an increase in total sales of 1,086 percent and 797 percent, respectively.
