Trace minerals are known as micro-minerals which are essential minerals that the human body must get from food. However, unlike macro-minerals, humans only need a very small amount. While trace minerals are only necessary for tiny doses, they are still crucial to our health and development. The recommended daily dosage that is allowed for most trace minerals is between .2 and 15 milligrams.
The many trace minerals that are common in foods, and are necessary for our daily diets include:
Chromium is often found in whole grains, cheeses, nuts, and liver, which helps insulin levels to be regulated.
Copper is often found in organ meats, beef, fruits, vegetables, beans, and nuts. Copper helps to aid in the formation of cartilage, and bone and helps the body to burn iron properly.
Fluoride is often found in water (as it is added to common drinking water), some teas, and fish, this is commonly added to water to help prevent tooth decay.
Iron is often rich in poultry, meat, cereal, whole grains, beans, nuts, and enriched pieces of bread. Iron is a critical mineral needed to manufacture blood and is critical for pregnancy and early childhood.
Manganese is particularly found within plants, as well as many other foods, and is known as an enzyme.
• Molybdenum iodine
Molybdenum iodine minerals are found in many common foods, and many individuals get this mineral from iodized salt, this mineral helps regulate your metabolism, development, and growth.
Selenium is an antioxidant that helps to protect against cell damage and is often found in meat, seafood, and grains.
Zinc plays a crucial role in fetal development, the immune system, adolescent development, and wound healing. Zinc is commonly found in many vegetables, poultry, grains, fish, and meat.
You naturally cannot produce enough trace minerals to help the body function on its own without external help. However, just because ingesting food and drinks, does not mean you are getting trace minerals, this is due to the fact that trace minerals can only be present if they are present in the soil that the food is growing in, or being ingested into the body of animals or put into water.
While you may think it’s quite easy to get the necessary trace minerals from daily food and drinks, it’s quite common that you can be deficient in trace minerals within your body.

• Muscle cramps
