Minerals are required for the maintenance of a healthy body, and without them we would not be able to assimilate our vitamins. Every mineral is unique, with its own unique properties and role within the body. There are 16 different minerals currently considered to be essential for good health.
In an ideal world, all the minerals we need would be provided by the food in our diet. Unfortunately, food processing and other modern methods of food production more-often-than-not result in a diet which fails to provide adequate levels of all the minerals we need. Supplementation can therefore be beneficial, helping to make up for our dietary shortfalls.
Natures Aid offer a range of mineral supplements.
