Minerals

Our bodies cannot survive without minerals. In fact our well being is dependant upon minerals more than any other factor. Funny thing though, our bodies don't naturally create the minerals we need. This is why supplementing with minerals is so important. Liquid minerals are the most absorbable form of mineral supplement. More on that later.

Here are a few basic facts about four of the major minerals our bodies require in large amounts.

SODIUM, known as salt, regulates the water distribution in our bodies. Salt is the most abundant mineral in our blood and needed by active people. Low salt levels will cause dehydration and muscle cramps.

This does not mean piling on extra salt while cooking or eating, we usually get enough salt in our diet depending on the foods we eat. Meat, fish, chicken, grains, and nuts contain salt.

Other foods high in salt: milk and margarine [except those advertised as low salt], canned foods, ketchup, popcorn, potato chips, french fries and sauerkraut.

According to a Harvard Medical School study, all our body requires is 0.2 grams of salt per day. Too much salt causes dehydration, potassium loss and serious medical problems.

POTASSIUM is a mineral that controls muscle heat and nerve conduction [the transmission of nerve impulses]. When we exercise and feel weak and tired, it's usually low mineral levels in muscle cells. Lack of Potassium is a common cause in this instance and there is no warning system to tell you this, unless a blood test is performed.

When exercising, muscle produces heat; Potassium released by the muscle prevents overheating by increasing blood flow. Sweat and urine excrete Potassium, so replacing it is vital.

Fruit juices have high levels of Potassium, drinking generous amounts will replenish low levels of this mineral. Other Potassium rich foods are: fruits and vegetables, molasses, pecans, rye, flour, soy beans, walnuts and wheat germ.

MAGNESIUM
helps to support a strong immune system and maintains normal muscle and nerve function. It is also known to be involved in every metabolism and protein synthesis and is needed for over three hundred biochemical reactions in the body, so it is very important.

A U.S. Department Of Agriculture report states that 36% of Magnesium is supplied through dairy products and meat. Other recommended foods are dark bread, nuts, and green leafy vegetables.

One of the benefits of magnesium is its muscle relaxing properties. The heart is a muscle and high blood pressure is often caused by the heart not relaxing sufficiently on its outward (diastolic) beat. There is increasing interest in the role magnesium can play in managing hypertension and cardiovascular disease.

If irritable bowel syndrome is the problem, a magnesium supplement will help to reduce the cramping of the intestine by relaxing it. Add a little peppermint oil in a chelated capsule to aid in the removal of painful flatulence and gas build-up and the two main symptoms of this disease will be reduced significantly.

CALCIUM is the most abundant mineral in our bodies, making up about 2%, and the main structural material for bones and teeth. Calcium controls muscle contraction and regulates most of the chemical reactions in our body.

If you are growing, pregnant, nursing, or elderly, your calcium requirements are high. Many women and children do not get enough calcium. Unfortunately, if you don't get enough calcium on a regular basis, your body will take it from your bones. Calcium deficiency may lead to disorders like osteoporosis. Caffeine and alcohol in can decrease your calcium level as well as high sodium intake.

Sources of calcium: almonds, asparagus, beans, cabbage, broccoli, spinach, cauliflower, cheese, egg yolk, figs, lentils, fish, soy and tofu, milk, buttermilk, yogurt, nuts, sardines and turnip greens.

Adding minerals into your daily diet will increase energy levels and add some snap to your exercise routine! So what the best way to do it...
