Minerals are the keys that allow the engine of our health to start. Minerals are,without doubt, amongst the most important nutrients required by the body. Without minerals, bodily functions are greatly diminished. They are directly and indirectly involved in every physiological process, none of which could occur without them. Enzymes will not form or function properly without certain minerals. Along with amino acids (protein), minerals are the basic building blocks of every cell in the body. RNA/DNA, the blueprints to our cells, cannot function properly without certain minerals. Amino acids cannot be created then formed into protein chains, nor absorbed by the body without the appropriate minerals. The same is true for vitamins. The effectiveness of essential vitamins is reduced without the presence of the specific minerals the body requires to assimilate them. Dr. Linus Pauling stated: “Without minerals, vitamins are useless.”

Along with amino acids (protein), minerals are the basic building blocks of every cell in the body. Most of the physiological processes of the human body cannot occur without the presence of minerals. Nucleic Acids (RNA/DNA), which are the blueprints to each cell, do not function properly without certain minerals. Amino acids cannot be created then formed into proteins, nor can they be absorbed and used by the body without minerals. The same is true for vitamins. While you may be consuming adequate amounts of vitamins, their effectiveness is diminished without the presence of the specific minerals
the body requires. Enzymes will not form nor function properly without the minerals they require to do so. Minerals are the keys that allow the engine of our health to start. Without them, bodily processes and functions are greatly diminished.
