Fruits and Vegetables

Minerals are very similar to vitamins, in that they function in the body as co-enzymes. They are little helpers. They help the body perform its daily internal chemistry.

Minerals are needed to help keep the blood and body fluids in their proper state. They are also needed to help form bone and support the nervous system. Minerals are important!

We find minerals as natural occurring elements on earth. We fine minerals in stone, rock, dust, sand and soil. This is proof of how close we resonate with the earth. Minerals are eaten by plants and we in turn eat the plants and grab their properties.

There are two types of minerals - trace and bulk. The trace minerals are zinc, iodine, selenium, iron, copper, chromium and manganese. The bulk minerals are needed in larger amounts by the body than trace minerals. They are calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium and sodium.

There are some minerals that are available in chelated form to improve absorption. This allows the minerals to attach to a protein in order to transport it to the bloodstream to enhance absorption. When the mineral is absorbed, it is carried to the by blood to the cells. Once it reaches the cell, it crosses the cell membrane so that the cell can utilize it.

Because minerals are stored mostly in bone and muscle tissue, it is nearly impossible to overdose on them. The only way toxic amounts can accumulate in the body is if mega dosages are taken for an extended period of time.

Enjoy reading researching minerals and taken care of yourself.
