Mineral Nutrients
 
  
  
 

Mineral nutrients are essential to life.

Without mineral nutrients, your body wouldn't be able to function. Mineral nutrients serve as the basic structural components of your skeletal system, blood proteins, enzymes, and certain hormones and vitamins. Your body uses minerals to produce energy and carry out important biochemical processes such as enzyme reactions, hormone production, and nerve transmission. Mineral nutrients also help promote proper growth and development of tissue, and assist in heart and muscle function.

WHERE DOES THE BODY GET MINERAL NUTRIENTS?
Having a full complement of all minerals is important. Your body cannot make essential minerals; they must come from your diet. Modern food processing and farming techniques can reduce the mineral content of some foods by as much as 99%, helping make mineral deficiencies more widespread than vitamin deficiencies. Another reason for mineral deficiencies is that minerals are not released as easily from food compounds as vitamins are.

WHAT ARE SOME IMPORTANT MINERAL NUTRIENTS?
Your body depends on several key mineral nutrients. These include calcium for bone tissue and muscle function; magnesium for heart function and energy production; iodine for thyroid function; manganese for skin tissue, hair growth, and immune function; and zinc for sexual function, digestion, and wound healing. Some other important mineral nutrients include chromium, cobalt, copper, strontium, sulfur and selenium; a powerful antioxidant that can protect your body from cell damage.

HOW COMMON ARE NUTRIENT IMBALANCES?
Nutrient imbalances often go undetected in a great number of people. Many clinical studies have reported multiple mineral deficiencies in a large percentage of the U.S. population. One researcher found that the average daily intake of copper by individuals consuming typical Western diets was only about half of the 2 - 3 mg required for optimal health. Another important study revealed that the average selenium consumption in the U.S. is typically less than half of the amount necessary.

WHAT CAUSES NUTRIENT IMBALANCES?
Imbalances of mineral elements can stem from poor diet, genetic predisposition, maldigestion or malabsorption of food, excess stress, or an improper balance of nutritional supplements.
