Minerals make us who we are
In order to function properly, the human body needs the intake of inorganic nutrients called minerals. As with vitamins, the optimal level of minerals varies. A person will need up to 2500 mg of mineral nutrient every day. Minerals that the human body needs are called essential minerals and are divided into macrominerals and microminerals, not according to the criterion of their importance, but according to the levels in which they must be found in the body. Among the macrominerals you will recognize calcium, phosphorus, sulfur, potassium, or sodium, while the group of microminerals includes zinc, fluorine, iron, or selenium.
Minerals are necessary for a lot of physical and cognitive processes: blood, bone and hormone production takes place with the help of active minerals in the body. Like other vertebrate animals, the human skeletal system requires significant amounts of calcium to form and maintain a healthy skeleton, and proper muscle function. Magnesium is also found in bones, it is responsible for the production of proteins, transmission in the nervous system, but also in the state of the immune system. Without iron in the hemoglobin, red blood cells could not function. In turn, chlorine, sodium and potassium help maintain the osmotic balance between human cells and interstitial fluid.
