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!
