Essential Minerals

Mineral Description
Sodium (Na) Indispensable for body growth. Enhances the function outside of the cell by adjusting the body fluid. Also balances the electrolytes. Prevents extreme fatigue and sunstroke. Assists cell metabolism in conjunction with Potassium. Magnesium is essential for sodium to function normally.
Potassium (K) Enhances the function within the cell. Balances acid and alkaline in the electrolytes and blood. Required for converting sugar and glycogen into blood sugar. Helps smooth the transmission path of beat rhythm, nerves and stimulus. Lowers blood pressure and prevent stress.
Magnesium (Mg) Enhance the activity of many enzymes, particularly the metabolism of glucide. Relieves heart tension.
Calcium (Ca) Ideal ratio between magnesium is 1:2 or 3 to perform its function
Chromium (Cr) The metabolism of sugar and stabilizes blood sugar levels; cleans the arteries by reducing Cholesterol & Triglyceride levels; helps transport amino acids to where the body needs them; helps control the appetite; medical research has shown that persons with low levels of Chromium in their bodies are more susceptible to having cancer and heart problems and becoming diabetic.
Molybdenum (Mo) Essential for certain oxidase. Detoxification of aldehyde. Antagonistic with copper.
Manganese (Mn) Vital metabolic function for carbohydrate and fat. Some enzymes are made from manganese. Required for fertility.
Iron (Fe) Transports oxygen throughout the body. Menopause Menstruation excretes iron which must be replenished.
Copper (Cu) Builds the red cell in conjunction with iron. Enhances iron absorption and helps maintain the cardiovascular system.
Zinc (Zn) Indispensable for activating metabolic enzyme. Helps synthesize protein, secretes hormone for immune system, insulin.
Phosphorus (P) Contained in every body cell. Strengthen bone and teeth through reciprocal action with calcium.
Selenium (Se) Component of antioxidant enzyme. Helps restrain cancer growth with an enzyme which controls active oxygen.
Lithium (Li) Involved in the metabolism of magnesium, potassium and sodium. Helps to control depression.
Vanadium (V) Controls synthesizing of cholesterol and phosphatide
Cobalt (Co) Required in the manufacture of red blood cells and in preventing anemia. Cobalt is part of the vitamin B12 molecule and its function is interwoven with that of vitamin B12.
Nickel (Ni) High dose of nickel is toxic, but it is considered as a trace mineral nutrient. Nickel allergies are linked to jewelry.
Boron (B) Boron is an important nutrient for brain and psychological function in humans.
Germanium (Ge) Improves oxygen supply to the cells. This in turn helps to fight pain, keep the immune system up and running well, and to remove toxins and poisons in the body.
Bromine (Br) Bromine, either as potassium bromide or sodium bromide, has anti-seizure properties and is an interesting and effective trace mineral in regards to hyperthyroid conditions.
Iodine (I) The only function of iodine involves the synthesis of thyroid hormone, which is necessary for regulation of human growth and development.
