Mineral Supplement: Minerals in Your Diet!

The food is the raw material for the body. Minerals are one of the important components of human nutrition. Minerals are grouped under two categories macro (the ones which we need in large amounts) and trace (the ones ne need in small amounts).

Here are some minerals which should be an important part of your diet.

Calcium: It is used for bone formation, muscle movement (cramps may result from calcium deficiency) and burning fat (some studies point towards taking calcium to lose weight).Over consumption of protein leads to calcium loss from the bones.

It is usually found in large quantities in dairy products, sea food with bones, non-vegetarian foods, soy/tofu and green leafy vegetables.

It is found in legumes and nuts.

Sodium: Very important to maintain the fluid levels and acid base balance of the body. Perspiration vomiting, loose motions etc tend to upset the acid base balance. People with iodine deficiency can additionally use sea kelp which is also good source of iron

It is found in small quantities in most foods. The best sources are rock salt and sea salt.
