Minerals

Minerals are important for your body to stay healthy. Your body uses minerals for many different jobs, including building bones, making hormones and regulating your heartbeat.

There are two kinds of minerals: macrominerals and trace minerals. Macrominerals are minerals your body needs in larger amounts. They include calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, sodiumpotassium, chloride and sulfur. Your body needs just small amounts of trace minerals. These include iron, manganese, copper, iodine, zinc, cobalt, fluoride and selenium.

The best way to get the minerals your body needs is by eating a wide variety of foods. In some cases, your doctor may recommend a mineral supplement.

¿Qué son los minerales?

Los Minerales son elementos químicos imprescindibles para el normal funcionamiento metabólico. El agua circula entre los distintos compartimentos corporales llevando electrolitos, que son partículas minerales en solución. Tanto los cambios internos como el equilibrio acuoso dependen de su concentración y distribución. Apróximadamente el 4 % del peso corporal está compuesto por 22 elementos llamados Minerales.
