More than 40 years ago, Hartley Anderson read a series of news paper articles written by Dr. George W. Crane announcing such headlines as "The Ocean's 44 Antidotes for Deficiency Ailments" and "Trace Chemicals Essential to the Body."
The Power of Trace Elements
These articles piqued Hartley's interest with information about the amazing results people were receiving from drinking small amounts of sea water each day. This led him to research the Great Salt Lake, an inland sea located near his home. He discovered that not only did the Great Salt Lake contain the same minerals and balance discussed by Crane, but that it was more concentrated than regular sea water. Hartley knew there was a need for these minerals and thus, the idea for a company was born. Yet it was not until Hartley had tried the minerals himself and had witnessed powerful results from his friends and family that the company was established with initial product sales.
The minerals from this desert sea caused such dramatic and varied results in people and Hartley knew from his growing stack of testimonials that the company's first product was effective. In 1968, he and his wife, Gaye, began selling Inland Sea Water™ to the public. A short time later, they discovered how to use nature's own processes to remove the sodium, thereby creating the Andersons' renowned liquid, low-sodium, mineral and trace mineral complex.
Before long, the Andersons combined our liquid minerals with vitamins, herbs, enzymes, and other nutrients, to create a comprehensive line of nutritional dietary supplements. Scientific research continues to uncover the intricate role minerals and trace minerals play in human health. These macro and micro elements can be found in rich abundance, a natural balance and a highly assimilable principle ionic form from the Great Salt Lake harvested by the Anderson family, as manufactured by Mineral Resources International, Inc.
Today, MRI produces a complete line of highly effective nutritional supplements as well as ionic mineral ingredients as a functional ingredient in beverages, foods, or supplements. These products are also backed by research and MRI is continually researching new information to support our existing and new products.
