Minerals are naturally present in many foods, and sometimes added to foods that don’t contain specific minerals. Minerals are beneficial, if not critical for our body to function properly. Our body needs different minerals in different amounts consistently from our diet. Additionally, we can also take minerals in the form of supplements.

We need minerals for essential bodily functions such as growth, repair and maintaining optimal metabolism. Certain minerals are important to keep our bones and teeth strong, to improve our heart health, as well as regulating our muscle function during physical training and promoting muscle recovery post-workout. We can lose some minerals through sweating during physical training, therefore, the replenishment of minerals after training is recommended.
