Why are minerals important?
Minerals are nutrients that exist in the body and in food. Minerals are vital to overall mental and physical well-being. All tissues and internal fluids of living things contain varying quantities of minerals. Minerals are constituents of the bones, teeth, soft tissue, muscle, blood and nerve cells.
They are important factors in maintaining physiological processes, strengthening skeletal structure and preserving vigour of the heart and brain as well as muscle and nerve systems. They help maintain water and fluid balance and keep blood and tissue fluids from becoming too acid or too alkaline, and permit other nutrients to pass into the blood-stream.
The greatest need for Calcium occurs from the ages of 12 to 15 years of age (1200mg of Calcium per day) . Pregnant breastfeeding women also require 1500 mg per day. The average adult requires 800 mg per day, increasing to 1000 mg per day during Menopause.
