Optimise Your Health: Essential Minerals

To achieve your highest potential and feel your best every day, you need to think in terms of nourishing your cells – this is where cellular nutrition comes into play. In order to function properly, your body's cells need sustenance and hydration. By ensuring you're consuming enough vitamins and minerals through your diet, your cells can operate efficiently, for the wellness and vitality you deserve.

Just like vitamins, minerals are an essential part of your overall diet. You may be at risk of mineral deficiency if you:

    • Train hard
    • Lack restorative sleep
    • Have weight issues
    • Are always on the go with lack of access to fresh food
    • Are undergoing periods of high stress
    • Have compromised digestion
    • Don't have enough variety in your diet
    • Are pregnant or breastfeeding

What are minerals?

Minerals are elements found in your food and the earth that serve essential health functions in your body. Your body needs minerals in order to complete many jobs such as keeping your organ systems healthy, creating hormones and enzymes.

Popular Minerals

1. Magnesium:

Magnesium is critical for your body, playing a role in over 300 enzyme reactions. Immunity, muscle and nerve function, healthy bones and blood pressure management are just some of the benefits of this important mineral. 

Find Magnesium in these food sources:

    • Leafy greens
    • Dark chocolate
    • Legumes
    • Soybeans

Product recommendation: Magnesium Advanced by Fusion Health

2. Zinc:

Zinc is another essential mineral that helps your immune system stay healthy, maintain hormone production and assists the body to create proteins and DNA. During pregnancy and a child's development, zinc is essential for healthy growth and development.

Find Zinc in these food sources:

    • Meats like beef and turkey
    • Whole grains
    • Beans
    • Nuts
    • Seafood like crab and oyster

Product recommendation: Zinc Advanced by Fusion Health

3. Calcium:

Critical for strong bones, don't neglect your calcium! It's the most abundant mineral in your body but you need to regularly consume it in order to protect your bones and give your body support with other functions like brain signaling.

Find Calcium in these food sources:

    • Dairy products like cheese, milk and yogurt
    • Salmon with bones
    • Spinach
    • Tofu 

Product recommendation: Super Calcium Complete by NutraLife

4. Iron:

If you're constantly feeling tired, it could be as a result of a lack of iron. Iron is used to make energy in your body, and has other important functions like creating amino acids, hormones, neurotransmitters and collagen. Iron is critical for the health of your red blood cells.

Find Iron in these food sources:

    • Dark leafy greens
    • Liver and other organ meats
    • Red meat
    • Pumpkin seeds
    • Tofu
    • Beans
    • Lentils

Product recommendation: Organic Iron Max by Herbs of Gold

 Final Thoughts:

By optimising your micronutrient intake through a variety of whole foods and supplementation where necessary, you'll be feeling great every day, ready to take on the world! Don't settle for average. If you know you can feel better than you do at this moment, take charge and make the necessary changes to make it happen!
