Publisher's Summary

Essential minerals in the human diet.

Energy, longevity, immunity, sleep, and more.

What are the 13 essential minerals?

What are the essential minerals and their functions?

Minerals: Their functions and sources.

The body needs many minerals; these are called essential minerals. Essential minerals are sometimes divided up into:

  • Major minerals (macrominerals)
  • Trace minerals (microminerals)

These two groups of minerals are equally important, but trace minerals are needed in smaller amounts than major minerals. The amounts needed in the body are not an indication of their importance.

A balanced diet usually provides all of the essential minerals.

For example:

  • Magnesium
  • Foods that have it: Green leafy vegetables, nuts, dairy, soybeans, potatoes, whole wheat, quinoa

How much you need:

  • Men ages 19-30: 400 milligrams per day
  • Men age 31 and up: 420 milligrams per day
  • Women ages 19-30: 310 milligrams per day, unless pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Women age 31 and up: 320 milligrams per day, unless pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Pregnant women: 350-360 milligrams per day
  • Breastfeeding women: 310-320 milligrams per day

What it does: Helps with heart rhythm, muscle and nerve function, bone strength.

Don't get more than this much: For the magnesium that’s naturally in food and water, there is no upper limit.

For magnesium in supplements or fortified foods: 350 milligrams per day.

Impossible to listen to.

This audiobook sounds like it’s been read by a computer. I found it impossible to listen to.
