Minerals are often forgotten about in medicine but they are vital for your health.
Minerals act as “the spark plugs” of your health – they alter electrical currents to create nerve impulses throughout your body. Minerals act as cofactors for enzyme reactions. Your body can’t make minerals – you have to get them from your food but today’s soils are generally depleted. This means that most of us need additional mineral supplementation in order to get the right components for optimal health. This is why working with a functionally trained health professional is so important. You need a partner to optimize your health today. Don’t leave it to chance.
You may be recommended different mineral products at various stages of your life but if these recommendations are not based on holistic health principles, they can be detrimental to your health. More is not better when it comes to minerals. Minerals work as a synergistic community within you.
Calcium, zinc, magnesium, manganese and potassium are some of the key minerals needed for healthy bone health. Work with a clinical nutrition expert who understands how cofactors and minerals synergize together.
Specific minerals keep your nerves healthy especially potassium and sodium. This keeps anxiety and fear at bay. Your adrenal glands (stress glands) depend on healthy mineral levels.

From calcium to manganese and everything in between – minerals activate more than 20,000 enzymes in the body.

Macro minerals include calcium – the most abundant mineral in our body, potassium, phosphorus, sodium, magnesium, chloride and sulfur. Some of these are electrolytes which means that they hold an electrical charge – positive or negative and maintain the balance of fluid inside and outside of your cells.
