The body needs various minerals for optimal health. Inadequate diet and aging can lead to mineral deficiency, or at least to insufficient minerals or insufficient absorption.
Minerals, found in the earth, are elements necessary to vital body functions such as proper nerve function, protein synthesis, proper energy production, skeletal structure, muscle contractions and hormone production. Minerals are important components of enzymes and coenzymes, which are complex proteins that collectively, work like little chemical reactors in the body to speed up important metabolic processes. Mineral supplements thus play an important role in ensuring overall health and wellness.
Mineral Deficiency may include some of the symptoms listed below. Symptoms can vary considerably depending on the mineral involved and the severity of the deficiency.

Calcium Benefits - Should your diet not provide you with adequate intake of the vital mineral calcium, a calcium supplement will ensure that you are receiving the amount that you need. Absorbed in the small intestine, calcium is the most abundant mineral in the human body, with about 2 to 3 pounds’
Magnesium Benefits - Magnesium is an important mineral involved in hundreds of enzyme reactions on the body. It’s important for proper functioning of the muscles, for the transmission of nerve impulses, and the support of proper cardiovascular functions and a healthy immune system.
Selenium Benefits - Selenium is trace mineral found in the soil, and is needed in only small amounts by the body. The mineral, through a series of processes, converts into a potent antioxidant enzyme and plays an important role in the functioning of vitamin E. The vitamin and the mineral, in tandem, represent a powerful combination.
Zinc Benefits - Zinc is an important mineral present in every part of the body and is involved in the management and direction of numerous bodily processes. It’s involved in the manufacture of DNA—specifically, in growth and cell division.
Boron Benefits - Boron is an important trace mineral that has largely been ignored for health maintenance and freedom from illness. This is unfortunate, as it is extremely important and as a health supplement, can have profoundly beneficial effects on aging, menopausal symptoms, allergies, arthritis and candida.
