MINERALS


Like vitamins, minerals keep the body healthy. Also like vitamins, they require you to stick to a healthy diet! It is not a good idea to overdo certain minerals. A good example of this is sodium, as many people eat large amounts of sodium without even realizing it!




There are two kinds: macrominerals and trace minerals. Your body needs more macrominerals than trace minerals. They are listed below along with some (not all) of the foods rich in each mineral:


Calcium: For healthy bones

Dairy, leafy greens, orange juice


Phosphorus: Strong bones, repairing cells

Tomato, banana, potato, yogurt


Magnesium: Supports 300+ biochemical reactions in the body

Beans, whole grains, nuts


Potassium: For healthy muscles and nervous system

Salmon, sweet potato, avocado, spinach


Sodium: Nutrient absorption, muscle and nerve function

Found in most foods (people overdo their sodium intake often)


Sulfur: Collagen production

Veggies, dried fruit, dairy


Chloride: Aids in digestion

Table salt


Trace Minerals (your body only needs a little bit, but they are just as important as macrominerals):


Iron: Transports oxygen

Meat, tuna, eggs, beans


Manganese: Plays a role in metabolism

Whole grains, leafy veggies, tea


Copper: Plays a role in metabolism and provides energy

Leafy greens, summer squash, nuts, seeds


Iodine: For a healthy thyroid

Yogurt, strawberries, cheese


Zinc: Healthy immune system

Dark meat, nuts, legumes


Cobalt: To help absorb b12▪

Oats, fish, leafy greens, nuts


Fluoride: For healthy teeth

Tea, grapes, walnuts


Selenium: Disease prevention

Tuna, sardines, beef, chicken, some nuts


Always consult your physician before beginning any nutrition or fitness program, especially if you are currently being treated for any illness or medical condition, taking prescription medication, or following a doctor recommended diet.
