Minerals
Dietary minerals serve a life-sustaining function by helping your body operate properly and remain strong. Minerals build skeletal and soft tissues, and they also regulate processes - such as heartbeat, blood clotting, internal fluid pressure, nerve reactions, impulse transmissions, muscle contractions, oxygen transport, acid/base balance to keep the pH of the body neutral, as well as enzyme and hormone systems.

In addition, dietary minerals make up 60 to 80% of all the inorganic (non-carbon containing) material in the body, and they fall into two categories: macrominerals and microminerals. There are seven macrominerals, also known as major or bulk minerals: calcium, chloride, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium and sulfur. They are present in virtually every cell in the body and at least 100 mg of each are needed daily just for normal functioning and well-being.

Microminerals, commonly called trace minerals, are required in smaller quantities - typically less than 100 mg per day. Still, some are considered "essential" for good nutrition. Essential microminerals include chromium, copper, fluoride, iodine, iron, manganese, molybdenum, selenium and zinc. Unfortunately, dietary minerals have low bioavailability, which means in their natural state, they are not readily available for use in the body. This is because minerals are too big and bulky with high molecular weights, so they are unable to cross the intestinal membrane intact. To enable dietary minerals to pass through the intestinal wall where they can be absorbed into the blood stream, they are usually attached to a "carrier." This is why minerals are found in various forms like magnesium aspartate and calcium citrate.

Mineral chelates (pronounced KEY-lates) are minerals bound to special "carriers" like amino acids and are particularly effective in propelling nutrients into the blood stream. Few nutritional substances cross the intestinal wall as quickly and easily as amino acids, thanks to their unique active transport mechanism of absorption. By linking the two, the amino acid is able to transport the mineral across the intestinal lining into the body, so it can be put to use. However, to be transported intact, the mineral must have a stable bond to the amino acid. Simply mixing minerals with amino acids - a basic ionic and hydrogen bond - will not produce a stable product. Mineral "chelates" created in this manner often lose their integrity during digestion and compromise the nutrient's availability.

The Super Boron Bone Formula

Boron - Boron (micromineral) aids in the body's ability to use calcium, magnesium and vitamin D. It also assists in normal brain function and recognition. Dietary sources high in boron include green leafy vegetables, bananas, peaches and apples.

Calcium - Calcium (macromineral) is the most abundant mineral in the body found primarily in the teeth and bones, supporting their maintenance and growth by making them dense and strong. A small amount of calcium is present in blood plasma (1%) and other body fluids, where it influences muscle contraction, nutrient passage through cells, nerve transmission and blood clotting. Dietary sources high in calcium include milk, cheese, fortified cereals and green leafy vegetables.

Copper - Copper (micromineral) aids in iron absorption by playing an important role in the formation of red blood cells, specifically hemoglobin, which is the oxygen-carrying component of red blood cells. It helps produce elastin and collagen that enable wounds to heal and helps convert amino acids into pigments (melanin), adding color to hair and skin. Dietary sources high in copper include breads, grains, broccoli, eggs, oysters and liver.

Magnesium - Magnesium (macromineral) helps maintain muscles, nerves, bones, and teeth and is essential for carbohydrate and protein metabolism, cell reproduction, and smooth muscle action, including heart muscle tone. Magnesium is required for cellular metabolism and energy production. It also facilitates absorption of calcium and potassium and the processing of vitamin D. Dietary sources high in magnesium include milk, cheese, yogurt, green leafy vegetables, grains, apples, bananas and wheat bran.

Manganese - Manganese (micromineral) helps produce the enzymes that metabolize protein and fat and is utilized in the manufacture of sex hormones and breast milk in females. Additionally, it has been shown to help neutralize free radicals, stimulate growth of connective tissue, and support normal nerve and brain function. Manganese is also necessary for normal skeletal development and pituitary gland activity and enables the body to utilize vitamins C, thiamin, biotin and choline. Dietary sources high in manganese include whole grains, eggs, blueberries and beet tops.

Potassium - Potassium (macromineral) is found in both intra- and extracellular fluid and plays a major role in fluid and electrolyte balance, as well as heart muscle activity. It is also necessary for carbohydrate metabolism and protein synthesis. Together with sodium, potassium is required for growth, building muscles, and transmission of nerve impulses. Dietary sources high in potassium include bananas, vegetables (especially legumes), whole grains, citrus fruit, apple cider vinegar, molasses, fish and unprocessed meats.

Vitamin D - Vitamin D is a fat-soluble nutrient that undergoes conversion in the liver and kidneys to form a physiologically active form of vitamin D called calcitriol. Active vitamin D's most significant role is to increase calcium absorption, which helps form and maintain healthy bones and teeth. Other physiological functions include maintenance of normal blood levels of calcium and phosphorus. There are two forms of vitamin D: D2 and D3. Vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol) is found in yeast and plants that have been exposed to ultraviolet light. Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol), however, is found in animal products and is also made in the body when sunlight triggers its synthesis in the skin.

Zinc - Zinc (micromineral) is vital to a multitude of biological functions, including immune resistance, digestion, reproduction, physical growth, blood sugar/insulin control, taste and smell. In fact, zinc supports normal growth and development during pregnancy, childhood and adolescence. Immune cells, pancreas, salivary glands and the prostate gland secrete zinc. Dietary sources high in zinc include meat, poultry, fish, seafood, eggs, brewer’s yeast, dairy products, beans and lentils, yeast, nuts, seeds (especially pumpkin seeds) and whole grain cereals.
