Mystery of Minerals

Minerals are the Sparkplugs for the BodyMontaro Beach sunset, Sea Foam waves study007

All living creatures need nutrition to live and thrive.  Proper nutrition includes a balanced diet which includes proteins, fruits, vegetables, beans, grains which provide the body the fuel it needs every day.  If you remember the biology class in school, these foods provide the six major classes of nutrients which are : carbohydrates (sugars, starches and fiber), proteins, fats, water, vitamins and minerals. These all work together to help us grow, think, work, play, rest and create.

 

Like a car without gas, without one of these elements, the car won’t go anywhere.  All of these work together in a wonderfully complex yet remarkably consistent manner.  So how do minerals work? Using the car analogy again, if the protein is like the engine of the car, the carbohydrates (sugar and starch) provide the gas or fuel, the fats function like the oil, the water keeps the engine cool,  the vitamins would be like the transmission and the minerals would be like the sparkplugs which allow everything to fire properly.
