Fruits are a good source of calcium, iron, potassium and seleniumPeople often wonder about colloidal minerals supplements. What is it? Why are people taking it? What are the benefits?

Colloidal minerals are types of mineral supplements that have become popular because companies claim they work better than other mineral supplements. Colloidal minerals are more easily absorbed than other types of mineral supplements and contain various trace minerals that are difficult to find elsewhere.

But how can you effectively use colloidal minerals? This supplement is ideal to compensate deficiencies in our diets, which may lead to illness. The superior bio availability of colloidal mineral supplements can help prevent about 60 diseases caused by mineral deficiency.

Minerals are the building blocks of the body and every living cell of the human body depends on minerals for proper structure and function. Insuring that you have the proper minerals is essential to good health.

Inadequate diet can lead to mineral deficiency or at least to insufficient minerals. Some of the more common deficiencies are iron, iodine and calcium deficiency. Iron is needed by the blood and deficiency leads to anemia. Iodine deficiency leads to goiter as well as cretinism, which results in developmental delays. The body needs calcium for bones and other purposes and calcium deficiency or inadequate intake can be implicated in osteoporosis and other diseases.

Additionally, other mineral deficiencies are common and can be easily prevented. For example, gray hair can be the result of a copper deficiency, cardiomyopathy is the result of a selenium deficiency and diabetes and hypoglycemia can be due to vanadium and chromium deficiencies.
