Calcium may be the most clinically studied of all the minerals. It is by far the most prevalent mineral in the human body with 99% of it found in bones and teeth, and the remaining 1% found in blood and soft tissue. An adequate intake of calcium is necessary for maintaining bone density. In fact, adequate calcium throughout life, as part of a well-balanced diet, may reduce the risk of osteoporosis. In addition, calcium is also necessary for nerve impulse transmission, muscle contraction, relaxation and constriction of blood vessels, and secretion of hormones.
Magnesium is an essential mineral with multiple functions in the human body. This includes the structural role it plays with bone and cell membrane formation. It is needed to metabolize carbohydrates and fats in the production of energy. Magnesium is also required for transporting potassium and calcium across cell membranes. The conduction of nerve impulses, muscle contraction, normal heart rhythm and cell signaling, are also all magnesium-dependent activities. In addition, magnesium supports healthy blood pressure already within normal ranges.
Zinc is a nutritionally essential mineral needed for structural, and regulatory functions in the body. Over 300 different enzymes depend on zinc for their ability to perform their important biological functions. Adequate zinc intake is important for maintaining healthy bone density.
