Minerals allow the body to work properly and stay healthy. However, as the body is unable to make minerals, we have to be certain that the food we eat contains the minerals our body needs.
How many minerals? Which minerals? .. when .. in what balance? The questions and the answers needed to understand the body's needs with regard to this subject, are many. Then there is the where to buy? How to store? When to take?
Figure 1: Minerals and your body
Some minerals, known as macro-minerals, such as calcium, magnesium and potassium are required in larger amounts. Other minerals, known as micro-minerals or trace elements, such as chromium, copper, iron, manganese and zinc, are only required in small or tiny amounts.
Organising which minerals to take seems complicated and in today's busy lifestyle, how much better to take a mineral drink each morning. I choose to take Modere's Mineral Classic, I take 15ml (3 teaspoons) of Mineral Classic before breakfast each morning. For me, with this 15ml, the guesswork about minerals has been alleviated.
