Minerals are important basic building blocks for proper nutrition and health. Without them, other nutrients are unable to function properly. Amino acids and enzymes don’t function as well as they should, resulting in other nutrients not breaking down enough to be properly absorbed,the end result; serious vitamin and mineral deficiencies.
Minerals are different then vitamins but work together to give your body the health it needs. We need them to help build bones, make hormones and regulate your heartbeat.
-Bones and teeth
-Growth and development
