“We are always very anxious and excited to review the SPINS report to see how we have performed over the past year,” said Dave Chambers, National Sales Manager of TMR. “This report first of all shows that we continue to be the number one selling trace mineral brand in America and that ConcenTrace still maintains its dominance in the category. But even more importantly, it proves that we are achieving our mission of helping more and more people understand the importance of trace minerals as an essential part of a healthy diet.”
Additionally, TMR’s flagship product ConcenTrace Trace Mineral Drops 8 ounce still holds the number one spot in the category and posted a 26 percent growth over the past year.
