What do minerals do? From energy production to proper nerve & blood formation, minerals work synergistically with vitamins to regulate hundreds of essential functions
What does this mean? A healthy diet alone, even one that’s primarily organic, may not meet all of your body’s nutritional needs. So you have to rely on supplements to take up the slack. Consider adding some must-have minerals to your daily supplement regime. Suggested minerals would be: chromium, magnesium, iron & zinc.
Let’s look at chromium and magnesium.
Chromium enhances the function of insulin, a vital hormone that regulates blood sugar and plays a positive role in conditions such as arterial plaque buildup, elevated cholesterol and triglyceride levels, glaucoma, hypoglycemia, and obesity. Those at risk of deficiency: Individuals with type-2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome (pre-diabetes) Deficiency symptoms: Blood sugar fluctuations, glucose intolerance, high cholesterol and triglycerides
Magnesium is required for more than 300 biochemical functions in the body. It supports muscle and nerve function, a steady heartbeat and blood pressure, immunity, bone health, energy production, and protein synthesis. Adequate magnesium may help ward off hypertension, type-2 diabetes, and elevated triglycerides and maintain healthy levels of beneficial high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol. Those at risk of deficiency: Older adults; heavy drinkers; individuals taking certain diuretics, antibiotics, and medications to treat cancer; those with poorly controlled diabetes or chronic absorption problems (like Crohn’s disease) Deficiency symptoms: Gastrointestinal (GI) upset, heart problems, insomnia, kidney stones, loss of appetite, muscle cramps and weakness, osteoporosis, personality changes
