Minerals are inorganic chemical elements that comprise 4-5% of our body mass. We find them in tissues and body fluids, and they participate in various biochemical processes in the body, such as building bones, brain, blood, enzymes, hormones, regulation of metabolism and fluid balance in the body. They are necessary for functioning of the organism, and can be present as free ions or bound in certain organic compounds. Minerals are essential substances, which means that our body cannot synthesize them, but must be taken in through food and water and nutritional supplements.
We lose minerals daily through digestion, sweating and breathing, so it is necessary to compensate for their loss every day.
The main mineral in the human body is magnesium, and its deficiency can lead to a large number of problems.
Zinc is a key mineral for maintaining healthy blood flow. Zinc regulates cell growth, helps with wound healing and strengthens the immune system, and also encourages the body to use carbohydrates, proteins and fats as fuel.
