Most of us think of minerals as being necessary for strong bones and teeth, but minerals do much more. In addition to providing us with shape and support for our skeleton, minerals are the “spark of life.” Minerals are essential in the diet and each plays unique and often multi-factorial roles as they act at all levels of the body – cells, tissues, organs, and the whole organism. All of our body processes depend upon the action of minerals to activate the enzymes which perform bodily functions we take for granted.
Without proper mineral ratios we could not set into motion the properties and functions of enzymes, vitamins or amino acids. These elemental components are responsible for every activity in every cell of our bodies. Cellular functions require a proper chain of events that start with minerals. Without the proper mineral we could not twitch an eyelid or form a thought.
