Minerals


Virtually every chemical reaction that occurs along the body’s metabolic pathways involves mineral components. Energy production, tissue manufacture, protein synthesis, cellular growth and reproduction, water balance and the immune system all require one or more minerals.*

Essential minerals are crucial for growth of bones, teeth and soft tissue and provide critical support to muscle, blood and nerve cells.* These minerals facilitate activation of enzymes, hormones and antibodies.*

Macrominerals are calcium, phosphorus, potassium and magnesium. Microminerals are iron, zinc, copper, selenium, manganese, iodine, molybdenum and chromium.

Food Sources:
  • green, leafy vegetables
  • meats
  • organ meats
  • fruits
  • nuts

When supplementing, look for products with:
  • both macro and micronutrients
  • vitamin D to aid calcium and phosphorous absorption and utilization
  • chelation for enhanced absorption and reduction of stomach irritation
