Your body contains over 25 essential minerals, which are natural chemicals needed in small amounts. Like vitamins, too little in the body can lead to a deficiency disease which in turn can become a fatality. In turn the amount of minerals required is influenced by age, health, and circumstances. Although taking supplements is the trend today, it is ill advised because one becomes at risk of developing an illness that is due to a) a disease b) toxicity due to lack of the counterbalance of the action of the mineral that is present in a healthy diet – a diet that is void of refined foods, which are de-mineralized.
