Focal Points of Nutrition: Minerals

Posted Aug 19 2009 6:32pm
There are two categories of minerals that are necessary in every diet: “Major minerals” and “Trace Minerals.” As one may guess, the difference is in necessary quantities.Major minerals should be consumed in quantities equal to or greater then 100mg.
These are minerals such as calcium, phosphorus, potassium, sulfur, sodium, chloride, magnesium and iron.
Trace minerals should be consumed in quantities less than 100 mg. Manganese, copper, and iodide are some of these.
Minerals help in the breakdown of glucose, fatty acids and amino acids into carbon dioxide, water and “energy.”
They can also help build up glucose, fats, fatty acids and amino acids into glycogen, fats and proteins.
