Minerals

The nutrients, that are necessary for our body's health are divided into macronutrients ( carbohydrates, protein and fat) and micronutrients ( vitamins and minerals ). Both are necessary for the body to function. Micronutrients, however, are only needed in small amounts. Minerals, just like vitamins, are not synthesized by the body and must therefore be obtained through the diet or dietary supplements.

Minerals can be divided into:

  • Macrominerals (which are needed in bigger amounts, milligrams) - calcium, phosphorus, sodium, potassium, chlorine, magnesium, sulfur;
  • Microminerals (which are needed in smaller amounts, micrograms) - iron, copper, cobalt, zinc, manganese, iodine, molybdenum, selenium, chromium and fluorine.
