Minerals and Your Body

Published on 2/18/2018

Minerals are extremely important to the body and in reality minerals are important in general. Even the pencil you use contains minerals and is made up of graphite and clay. Clay contains minerals like potassium, sodium, calcium, magnesium, or iron.

The body needs relatively larger quantities of some minerals and smaller quantities of others but even the minerals needed in small quantities are vital to good health. I want to talk about a few that you may never think about but should.

Boron mineralBoron is a vital trace mineral that benefits the normal growth and health of the body, the bones, muscles, and assists in the metabolism of calcium, phosphorus, magnesium

Boron is essential for copper metabolism and therefore could play a role in the correction of hyperthyroidism and possibly hypothyroidism.

Some symptoms of Boron deficiency are brittle bones, carpal tunnel syndrome, hormonal imbalance, and memory loss, muscle pain, osteoporosis, receding gums, joint disease and weak joint cartilage. Other symptoms may include cancer, arthritis, osteoarthritis, hyperthyroidism, loss of libido, rheumatoid arthritis, tooth decay and so much more.

According to http://medlineplus.govBoron seems to affect the way the body handles other minerals such as calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus. It also seems to increase estrogen levels in older (post-menopausal) women and healthy men. Estrogen is thought to be helpful in maintaining healthy bones and mental function. “

Estrogen ladies, you know the stuff that seems to decrease after menopause and because of that can affect our ability to ward off the “crazies” during that time.

On a side note, a couple of years ago, I was experiencing this and weird things were happening with my heart. It felt like it was jumping in my stomach. It reminded me of when you get butterflies but it happened often and I could always tell when it was going to happen so I checked my pulse and each time it showed on a pulse oximeter that we have. It was a very uncomfortable, but only for a brief time because interestingly enough, my mother told me that a doctor had told her to take minerals like magnesium.  It seriously worked. No more problems since and the minerals I took were not even high quality.

Copper mineralBoron deficiency causes Calcium and magnesium to be lost in the urine, which in turn weakens bones, joints, and dental enamel. Boron deficiency also causes cell walls to become very weak and fragile, rendering the cells incapable of properly transferring and receiving nutrients into them.

Speaking of copper and magnesium, copper is also very important and is necessary for enzymatic reactions, energy production, normal heart rhythm, the normal function of the thyroid gland, production of hemoglobin (RBC), myelin, melanin, elastin, collagen production, immune function, and bone health. Copper and iron enable the body to form red blood cells.

Magnesium MineralsMagnesium is often called the master mineral. It is important for enzyme activity, energy production, muscles; including heart and nervous system.

Magnesium works in partnership with calcium and boron in many physiological functions including nervous and cardiovascular processes and bone-building.

The bottom line is that minerals are important and you may not be getting enough of them. They work together to help your body function properly and in this busy, busy world we live in, deficiency is a real possibility and many medications can actually decrease your body’s ability to absorb them.
