Minerals

Minerals are chemical elements needed by the body either to help form bodily structures or to facilitate chemical reactions. Dietary minerals are divided into two categories:

a) Major minerals, which are needed in amounts of 100 milligrams or more per day.

b) Trace minerals, which are needed in amounts of less than 100 milligrams per day.
