1. Magnesium. Concentrace is clearly a FANTASTIC choice of easily absorbed magnesium. Magnesium can help with sleep, which in turn can improve testosterone levels. Magnesium can also help improve heart disease, which can help erections. Magnesium is simply a ubiquitous molecule that is involved in 100's of different metabolic pathways.
2. Boron. Getting about a mg of ionic Boron is excellent as well. As I document in my link on Testosterone and Boron, you get about 1.5 mg/day of boron on average probably and the experts recommend up to about 3 mg/day. So this amount should be a nice addition to your (hopefully) well-rounded, whole foods diet.
3. All Other Minerals. What was surprising is the very low amounts of virtually all other standard minerals. For example, the daily requirement for potassium is about 4,700 mg, but 40 drops will only provide about 5 mg. Calcium and selenium are also less than a mg. Thus, with the exception of magnesium and boron, Concentrace Trace Mineral Drops provides very low amounts, well below 1% of RDA or AI.
4. Exotic Minerals. Concentrace does provide some of the more exotic minerals that the body does need in trace amounts. Rubidium is a classic example. There is no RDA or AI for rubidium, yet your body does use it in trace amounts for, among other things, the CNS (Central Nervous System). Studies have shown that low rubidium levels can negatively lead to mood disorders and depression in dialysis patients, who are known to have depleted rubidium levels. 
However, even here, it seems hard to get excited, because Concentrace provides such a low dosage. We eat between 1 mg and 5 mg per day of rubidium in our foods. Even coffee and tea have a good supply. The very minute amounts in 40 drops seem, quite frankly, to be almost negligible.
5. Heavy Metals. CAUTION: And here is where I see the problem with the Trace Mineral formulation: it has a number of heavy metals, including cadmium, arsenic lead, mercury and aluminum. Now, admittedly the amounts are very small. But I do not think of all the dosages can be so easily dismissed. For example, the dosage of arsenic in Concentrace is about 2.07 parts per million, which is in the area of rice, something that many experts are concerned about.
So, yes, it is a great source of magnesium, but you could simply use ZMA as a well-absorbed alternative and get a nice dose of zinc as well. I simply do not see the big advantage in using Concentrace daily and risk some of the heavy metal exposure.
CAUTION: If you have a medical condition or are on any medications, please discuss any changes with your doctor first. Certain supplements, foods and even juices can alter absorption rates of certain medications for example. Play it safe.
