1...Benefits of Minerals  
While vitamins and minerals are two very different types of substances, they work synergistically to promote good health and wellness as they are responsible for maintaining, or assisting with, the proper functionality of many of the various bodily functions that are required to sustain life.
The human body cannot receive or process vitamins without a sufficient supply of minerals. Similarly, minerals will be largely ineffective if not supplemented with a vitamin rich diet. For this reason, it is important to ensure that you consume a diet that is high in both vitamins and minerals.
One of the major differences between vitamins and minerals is that vitamins are considered to be organic substances because they contain carbon. On the other hand, minerals lack carbon and are thus referred to as inorganic.
Several medical and nutritional experts have concluded that minerals are even more important than vitamins. The health benefits associated with proper mineral consumption can not be overstated. Many illnesses that are due to deficiencies in different vitamins may produce mild effects and are easily treatable.
However, deficiencies in several of the mineral types can result in serious health conditions, that if left untreated, can rapidly lead to death. It should be apparent that a healthy dietary routine that is rich in vitamins and minerals is of utmost importance.
In addition, it is important to remember that while a high quality multi-vitamin supplement is recommended to ensure that you are receiving all of the nutrients required for good health, they should not be viewed as an alternative to consuming a healthy, well-balanced, whole food diet. In other words, always try to consume the recommended daily allowance for each of the vitamins and minerals from a healthy and unprocessed food source.
Minerals are involved in several metabolic functions that occur within the human body. Several minerals are components of enzymes (protein based molecules that speed up a chemical reaction in a living organism) which act as catalysts for many of the chemical reactions that occur within the body. Minerals also regulate and manage the normal function of human and animal organs, muscles, and tissues.
For example, sodium and potassium are crucial for maintaining proper fluid balance, calcium is a the primary structural component in bones and teeth, and iron is responsible for transporting oxygen, in the blood, throughout the body.
Skin, hair, nails, teeth, bones, and all other tissues require minerals in able to form. In addition, minerals are also involved in several bodily functions, including controlling several systems within the body and in the production of energy. In the event that an individual is deficient in any one of the major or trace minerals, the human body will digress to a level of structural weakness, internal system dysfunction, and over time, contract some form of debilitating disease.
