Many important bodily functions rely on mineral intake for them to work correctly and efficiently. Therefore, adequate mineral consumption is vital for your body and its health. And, in fact, both minerals and vitamins have a direct effect on lifespan and quality of life.
Minerals can be acquired through diet; however, today's modern-day foods don't always contain these essential nutrients at the appropriate levels. Soil is not as a nutrient-rich as it once was due to the overuse of pesticides, herbicides, etc. Nutrient-depleted soil, along with the way food is transported or stored, ect., greatly impact both mineral and vitamin quality and levels. Most soils are now depleted of important nutrients, including zinc and magnesium.
The body needs minerals to promote overall general health, wellness, and hormonal balance. Mineral supplementation on a daily basis can enhance your journey of health.
Minerals are divided into two groups; macro (major) and micro (minor). As a rule of thumb, macrominerals are required by your body in relatively high quantities, whereas, microminerals are required in trace amounts.
Zinc is a trace mineral that enhances reproductive health in both men and women. It is also essential for healthy immune function and correct thyroid conversion. And, as a lesser-known health benefit, enhances antibody production, to further help fight off infection and viruses.
Selenium is an essential micromineral important for growth and reproduction, as well as a proper immune system function, the maintenance of healthy hair and nails, for our organs including the heart, the brain, and the liver. Additionally, it is involved in correct thyroid function and works as a super antioxidant with vitamin E to help protect your cells against daily and abusive oxidative stress.

Calcium Citrate with vitamin D3
Calcium is a macronutrient - adult people usually need approximately 200mg of this mineral a day to promote optimal health. The correct amount of calcium intake is important at every age, not only for the elderly to enhance bone health. The stronger your bones are as you grow and develop, the stronger your bones will continue to be as you age.
Another function of calcium is that it helps cholesterol make sex hormones, which is interesting for both menopausal women and andropausal men as sex hormones decline. Calcium is also needed for the absorption of vitamin B12
In addition to vitamin D3, ,which is already found in this nutrient, vitamin C, vitamin E, and magnesium increase calcium absorption, helping to increase bone mass.
Magnesium is a macromineral and works as a cofactor (a molecule that binds to and stimulates an enzyme) which is involved in the activation of over 300 enzymes. Meaning it has a significant impact over many body functions, including digestive system support, heart health support, weight management and stamina. And in fact, magnesium is involved in the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), one of the body's major energy sources. Interestingly, approximately half of your body's magnesium is found in your bones, helping to prevent bone loss.
Chromium is a micromineral which is essential to your health. However, chromium has difficulty being absorbed by your body when it's one it's own. When combined with the protein picolinate, it more readily enters the bloodstream. Chromium aids in weight loss helps decrease sugar cravings, boosts the production of DHEA - a hormone which is known to be effective against many diseases. It also helps regulate blood sugars and helps hold onto calcium and prevent osteoporosis.
