Each living cell on this planet is dependent on minerals for its proper structure and function. Minerals are essential to almost every process that takes place within our body by transporting oxygen to every cell in the body, to regulating the heart beat and maintaining proper fluid and chemical balance. Minerals are the substances that make possible the operation of the nervous system. All of the electrical impulses of the nerves, moving from the brain and the spinal cord to the receptor and back to central nervous system, are made possible through these minerals. One of the greatest functions of minerals, especially trace minerals, is their combination with vitamins to produce coenzyme activity. This enables the body to perform its functions, including energy production, growth, healing, maintenance, repair and to insure overall survival.
Trace minerals are responsible for triggering the enzyme system in the body. Each trace mineral usually helps out in more than one system. Zinc for example, has been identified to be involved in more than twenty enzyme systems. In order for the body to perform its crucial functions, it must maintain its chemical balance. This balance depends on the level of different minerals in the body and their impact on each other. The body is very adaptable when it comes to regulating proper mineral balance within a rather narrow range. If an individual takes in more than body needs of any particular mineral, it will be absorbed only in the amount needed and the excess will be excreted. A problem arises if a particular mineral is absent in the diet. If so it can start chain reaction imbalances that lead to illness.
