Minerals Are Important For Optimal Health
Different minerals have many different benefits, so any one mineral cannot be called more or less important or useful than than another othe mineral. All minerals, even elementary ones, are essential for the proper functioning of the body.
Minerals help the body’s metabolism, water balance and bone health, but they can also participate in hundreds of other small ways to effectively improve health.
For the most part minerals cannot be manufactured by the body. This is why it is so important to be consuming mineral rich foods.
Listed below are some of the minerals found in the body and what they do
Calcium: This vital mineral strengthens bone health (prevents osteoporosis), relieves arthritis, improves dental health and ease insomnia, menopause, premenstrual syndrome and cramps. Also important is to prevent or treat obesity, colon cancer, acidity, heart disease and high blood pressure.
Chrome: This essential mineral is important for the acceptance of glucose in the body, so it’s especially important for those suffering from diabetes. It increases the uptake of glucose into cells, which stimulates fatty acid and cholesterol synthesis and although both usually seem negative components to health, they are actually essential in small levels of a functional, healthy life.
Iron: This is a key element for the formation of hemoglobin, the body metabolism, muscle activity, anemia, brain function, immunity, insomnia, tired legs syndrome and the regulation of body temperature. The primary role of iron in the body is associated with the formation of hemoglobin, which ensures blood circulation and oxygenation of various organ systems. Without iron, anemia occurs, as manifested by muscle weakness, gastrointestinal disorders and cognitive defects.
Magnesium: With the magnesium can be treated high blood pressure, stroke, alcoholism, bone health, cramps, diabetes, menopause, pregnancy and asthma. Also, magnesium is very important to reduce anxiety and stress, and is closely associated with a reduction of anxiety and insomnia, due to its enzymatic role in the release of hormones that soothe the body and induce sleep.
Iodine: This often neglected component of health, can facilitate goiter (increased thyroid), fibrocystic breast disease, skin disease and cancer, while at the same time can improve hair care, gives protection during pregnancy and improving the body’s metabolism.
Iodide: This is a secondary form of iodine, but is very important in terms of body function. Likewise is included in the overall thyroid function, and without it in the system of the body goiter will develop. Iodide is vital for the production of thyroxine (T4), without which the body can experience a drop in metabolism and increased levels of cholesterol.
Phosphorus: This mineral is an integral part in reducing weakness in muscles, improve bone health, improved brain function, correction of sexual weakness, helps dental care, and optimizing the body’s metabolism.
Manganese: Manganese plays an important role in the management of the body’s metabolism, osteoporosis, reduced fatigue, reproduce, sprains, inflammation, brain function and epilepsy.
Copper: This mineral improves function of the brain, soothes arthritis, helps in skin care, eliminate infections of the throat, fix the lack of hemoglobin, prevents heart disease, and increases immunity. It is commonly associated with taking iron and facilitate of the proper functioning of the circulatory system.
Potassium: Potassium can correct the low blood sugar, regulate blood pressure, prevent heart disease, increases the flow of water in the body, relieves muscle spasms and disorders, boost brain function, dealing with diabetes, correction of kidney disorders and dealing with arthritis. Reduces tension in blood vessels, and provides proper distribution of oxygen to vital organ systems, and protects against cardiovascular disease. It is also proved that improves brain function.
Selenium: Selenium is perhaps a rare mineral, but its function is important. He is one of the most powerful antioxidant minerals, and actually prevents the formation of new free radicals by participating in various cellular reactions that reduce the concentration of peroxide in the cells of the body. The reduction of free radicals is only one of the functions of selenium. He also is essential for the development of bones, together with calcium, copper and zinc.
* There is no trace of any Selenium in the soils of Western Australia.
Silicone: This mineral is important in bone health, skin care, hair care, nail health, sleep disorders, atherosclerosis, development of tissue, dental care and tuberculosis.
Sodium: This widely used mineral is key to water balance, improve brain function, relief of muscle spasms, and prevent premature aging.
Zinc: The last mineral on the list is very good when it comes to skin care, eczema, acne, wound healing, prostate disorders, cold, weight loss, pregnancy, reproduction, hair care, loss of appetite, eye care and night blindness. This component is essential for more than 10 enzyme important functions of the body, and without zinc, the body will quickly lose the overall functions and this will result in many health problems, including an inability to treat wounds, storing insulin, combating diseases, as well as to defend against various skin infections.
Sadly most soils of the world are mineral deficient. Ergo if its not in the soil it cannot be in the plant.... therefore our food. The best source of mineral and rare trace minerals is from Sea Vegetables.
