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.

My advise
1....   Several minerals are important for bone health. Calcium, the most abundant mineral in your body, combines with phosphorus, another essential mineral, to form calcium phosphate, the salt compound that makes up your bones and teeth.
2... Magnesium is necessary for the manufacture of bone-producing cells called osteoblasts and contributes to the ongoing process by which old bone tissue is broken down so new tissue can be formed. It is also required for release of calcitonin, a hormone that controls calcium transport, and parathyroid hormone, which helps break bone down. Manganese, a trace mineral, is necessary for the function of an enzyme that assists with bone formation.
3....Proper nerve transmission requires calcium, which triggers release of neurotransmitters between nerves and between nerves and muscles. Sodium and potassium move back and forth, trading places across your nerve cell membranes to help maintain an electrical charge. Magnesium helps calm your nerves.
4.... Your immune system relies on zinc for proper wound healing. Zinc also helps ward off respiratory infections by preventing bacteria from attaching to the membranes of your throat, making it a key ingredient in some throat lozenges. Selenium offers antioxidant benefits that reduce stress on the immune system. It also enhances the ability of white blood cells to attack and kill pathogens.
5... Minerals contribute to energy production and maintenance. Potassium helps with carbohydrate metabolism. Chromium works with insulin to maintain healthy blood sugar levels. It also sensitizes your brain to the level of sugar in your blood so your brain can control your appetite, food intake and blood sugar levels. Iron distributes oxygen throughout the body as part of red blood cells.
6... Iodine is a vital component of thyroid hormone, which regulates growth and development. Iodine deficiency is the world's leading cause of preventable brain damage, according to the Linus Pauling Institute. Iron contributes to formation of myelin, the fatty substances that insulate nerve cells. Iron deficiency is associated with poor cognitive development and academic performance.
7....The mineral sulfur is present in certain amino acids, such as methionine and cysteine, which function as part of the liver's detoxification pathways and are important in metabolism and formation of proteins. The mineral cobalt forms part of the structure of vitamin B-12, which is necessary for the manufacture of methionine. Magnesium is also required for protein production and stabilizing of protein molecules.
8... When you want to give birth to a child Amino fluid in your uterus is very important which consist about 90% water along with above.  So drink water to have safe growth of your child and to have normal delivery.
