There are two categories when it comes to minerals and what our body needs to function. Macro minerals are the ones we need greater amounts of. But don’t forget trace minerlas. These minerals contain cofactors in numerous enzymatic reactions. They are essential for proper hormone and neurotransmitter function. The trace minerals include things like iron, manganese, copper, iodine, zinc, cobalt, fluoride, and selenium. Although you could take these minerals individually, sometimes having an overall trace mineral supplement can be beneficial in covering a broader nutritional need, in addition to taking less pills is a plus!
