When it comes to nutrition vitamins and minerals go hand-in-hand. Correctly referred to as mineral nutrients, minerals complement the health benefits of vitamins and vice-versa, such as the beneficial roles both vitamin D and magnesium play in the absorption and utilization of the mineral calcium.
Like vitamins, mineral nutrients are essential for life. These inorganic compounds are naturally present on the Earth, with many are found in soil and water. Minerals are required for our skeletal structure, including teeth. They’re essential components of bodily tissues and fluids, and are required for the normal function of all bodily enzyme systems. Almost every function our bodies perform is in some way dependent on mineral nutrients.*
We obtain minerals primarily through our diet. Plants and other vegetation obtain them primarily from soil. Animals, including humans, obtain them through the ingestion of plants and other animals.
What you may not realize is the mineral content of soil can vary significantly from region to region, and these variations affect the nutrient content of both plants and animals. Modern food processing methods can further limit and even destroy these vital nutrients, so by the time your fresh produce or meat reaches your table it may not be nearly as nutritious as you might think.
Should we be getting our mineral nutrients from our food? Yes. Is a healthy, well-balanced diet sufficient to do so? These days, probably not, unless you’re eating raw, whole foods grown in pristine regions of the world where pollution and chemicals have yet to arrive. If you’re eating grocery store foods and the occasional fast food then you’re most likely not getting what you need.
Even if you’re eating healthy, you still may not be getting enough of the mineral nutrients you need.
This is why mineral supplements are an important part of a health regimen that includes regular exercise and a healthy diet.
