Delving into the concept of Trace Minerals

Minerals, when absorbed properly, help our body to carry out daily functions properly and efficiently. While you are more accustomed to names like sodium, potassium, calcium, etc., "Trace Minerals" from Organa International is a newer term. Trace minerals are those naturally occurring elements that our body requires less than 15 mg per day. Though needed in smaller quantities, they are very crucial.


The absorption  of Trace Minerals:

The best way to absorb good amounts of essential trace minerals is to eat right. Plants take up these minerals from the soil first which then are transferred to us when we eat these plants or animals feeding on these plants.


A small evaluation of the trace minerals:

Trace minerals include a plethora of essential minerals such as:
  1. Copper (needed 900 mcg for both men and women):
    Widely found in shellfish, nuts, whole grain cereals and organ meats, copper is essential for energy production, improvement of connective tissues, iron metabolism, neurotransmission, and in the production of hemoglobin. 
  2. Iron (18 mg for women and 8 mg for men):
    It is an important founding element of many enzymes and proteins. Iron is needed for the formation of lean muscles and red blood cells. Iron is found in poultry, seafood, red meat and dark leafy vegetables. 
  3. Iodine (150 mcg for both men and women):
    Found in dairy products, eggs, poultry, seafood and grains, iodine is a key element of thyroid hormones. 
  4. Chromium (35 mcg for men and 25 mcg for women):
    Insulin functions and glucose metabolism need chromium.  A diet incorporating fruits, vegetables, meat, fish, and grains fulfills the dietary needs of chromium. *
  5. Zinc (8 mg for women and 11 mg for men):
    Zinc-rich foods include beef, pork, crab, oysters, dark-meat chicken, turkey, cashews, chickpeas, almonds, peanuts, milk, yogurt, cheese. 
  6. Manganese (1.8 mg for women and 2.3 mg for men):
    Whole grains, leafy vegetables, nuts and teas are rich in manganese. Manganese helps in metabolic functions, supports bone development and wound healing. 
  7. Selenium (55 mcg for both women and men):
    A part of amino acid, selenium has a key role in thyroid hormone, reproduction, DNA synthesis, metabolism and defense against oxidative damage and infection.  Sources of selenium include seafood, dairy products, muscle meats and organ meats. 

The fundamental functions of Trace Minerals:

  • Trace Minerals are essential for normal growth and development.
  • They help in neurological functions.
  • Trace Minerals facilitate many biochemical reactions.
  • They are crucial for building hundreds of enzymes in our bodies.
  • They serve as antioxidants.
  • Trace Minerals support the blood system.
