Preventing Cancer with Minerals - Page 2
Amazing, right? This one measly mineral, out of 60 minerals that people should be taking each day, can have such a profound effect on health. But it's not just selenium that affects health. Calcium is another important mineral, and lack of it can cause arthritis, muscle spasms, frequent bone fractures, tingling or numbness in your hands or feet. Our bodies desperately need calcium, since it comprises most of our body (ie: bones). The two best foods for calcium are yogurt (45% DV) and tofu (40% DV). A simple liquid supplement works best if you don't eat calcium rich foods.
If you are like me, and have always struggled with maintaining a healthy weight, you may have a Chromium deficiency. Chromium helps insulin do it's job, thus can also help reduce cravings for sugary sweet foods, and also help reduce the occurrence of Diabetes.
But those three are not the only minerals that matter. There are a grand total of 60 minerals, 16 vitamins, 12 amino acids and 3 essential fatty acids, totaling 91 essential nutrients, that us humans need for optimum health. Our health should not be left up to fate. Prevention is the best medicine, and simply taking a proactive role if your daily health can save you money, time and most importantly, better your quality of life.
