Let me go out on a limb here and guess that the flyer was distributed by
someone trying to sell you something.

Yes, it's excellent on lettuce.  There are alot of urban legends and such,
but none have ever panned out in clinical trials.

That's the key is "how much".  An average sample of sea water also contains
gold, but one molecule per billion aint enough to make any difference to
anybody.  Same with vinegar and the above ingredient list.  It's just a
bunch of marketing poofery that means nothing.

Only to the distributor and only if you buy into it.
