WHAT ARE MINERALS?

   

Minerals are inorganic nutrients. There are 18 known minerals required for the maintenance of our bodies. Minerals are important in the upkeep and maintenance of our health. Without minerals, vitamins cannot be assimilated.

Minerals are needed to maintain the delicate cellular fluid balance, to form bone and blood cells, to provide for electrochemical nerve activity, and to regulate muscle tone and activity. All tissues and internal fluids of our body contain varying quantities of minerals. Minerals are constituents of the bones, teeth, soft tissue, muscle, blood, and nerve cells. And they are vital to overall mental and physical well-being.

There are two categories of minerals: those that humans need in quantities greater than 100mg per day (generally known as minerals) and those that are required in less than 100mg per day (a.k.a. trace elements).

“Chelated” is a term which often appears on mineral supplements. It means that the minerals are combined with amino acids to make assimilation more efficient. Use chelated products whenever possible because they are 3 to 5 times more effective!
