Why You Should Be Taking a Daily Supplement of Trace Minerals.

The first thing you may be asking yourself is What are trace minerals and why do I need them?

Well we all know that our bodies need vitamins and minerals to function properly. Simply put, trace minerals are minerals our bodies needs for things like enzyme function, thyroid regulation, glucose absorption, blood clotting, detoxification, and more.

Trace minerals are actually found in the earth’s crust.  And since humans get a large portion of their food from plants and animals (and animals get their food from plants), it’s extremely important for the earth’s soil to be rich in minerals.

Without trace minerals, you can experience a variety of health problems, such as weak bones, fatigue, or a decreased immune system.

Some examples of trace minerals are:

  • Chromium
  • Tin
  • Zinc
  • Vanadium
  • Copper
  • Silicon
  • Manganese
  • Nickel
  • Iron
  • Iodine
  • Cobalt
  • Selenium

So now that you know what they are and why we need them, I’ll explain how to get them. Different foods contains different minerals. To cover your bases and get as many minerals as possible, make sure your diet contains lots of green leafy vegetables, beets, legumes, broccoli, nuts, mushrooms, beans, garlic, tomatoes, avocados, bananas, and fatty fish.

Since some mineral deficiencies cannot be treated with diet alone, you may need to take a trace mineral supplement. Click here for a list of best sellers from Amazon

Keep in mind that there are some health issues that can affect how our body absorbs these minerals, including liver or kidney disease, alcoholism, surgery of the digestive tract, and taking certain digestive medications. It’s important to discuss any problems you may have with your health professional. 

Other ways you can ensure that you get an adequate amount of minerals into your body: avoid processed foods and try to eat organic whenever possible.
