Minerals play a variety of essential roles throughout the body. Some of the primary roles of each mineral include:

  • Calcium is a principal mineral constituent of bones and is thus essential for strong bones.
  • Magnesium is involved in energy metabolism, and is notably important in the heart, skeletal muscles, and the nervous system.
  • Iodine is necessary for the synthesis of thyroxin, the thyroid hormone that regulates the
  • body’s metabolic rate.
  • Zinc is important for growth, immune system function, protein synthesis, antioxidant mechanisms, and wound healing.
  • Selenium is an essential cofactor of glutathione peroxidase, a potent antioxidant.
  • Copper regulates iron metabolism and activates superoxide dismutase, a powerful endogenous antioxidant.
  • Manganese is essential for antioxidant systems in the body, bone growth, fat metabolism, and protein, nucleic acid, and cartilage synthesis.
  • Chromium is required for normal blood sugar and lipid metabolism; it is an integral component of glucose tolerance factor (GTF).
  • Molybdenum is involved in copper and iron transport, nucleic acid synthesis, and sulfur metabolism.
  • Potassium is involved in normal muscle tone, nerve function, and many enzymes.
  • Vanadium is active in lipid and glucose metabolism.
  • Boron is involved in steroid hormone metabolism, cell membrane stability, and bone health.
