Indium XL

Anyone heard of this product? It contains the mineral Indium that supposedly has numerous benefits.

Hey Mike I got a little pamphlet on indium the other day that makes it sound like a very effective overall mineral supplement. I haven’t used it but if you can obtain it cheap enough it probably wouldn’t hurt to try it out.

What is the claimed evidence for benefit
of indium supplementation?

Besides one study showing increased deposition
of chromium, copper, and a couple of
other essential minerals in other tissues, in rats or mice anyway,
which doesn’t to me imply a benefit, since
one can get as much of those nutrients as required already.
