It is important to have
the correct balance of vitamins and minerals so that dietary
deficiencies do not occur. Both are equally essential since
every gland in the body is dependent on one or more in order
to function. Vitamins and minerals work together to ensure optimum
absorption of both.
Minerals cannot be synthesised
by the body, therefore the correct diet or extra supplementation
is vital. Minerals are vital components of enzymes and are
involved in every biochemical process of the body. They are
vital for the transportation of oxygen, maintaining the nervous
system and for the growth and health of bones and tissue.
