Dario Bogni announces, mineral micronutrients, like vitamins, are essential elements in the life of cells and act as true "motivators" of different biological reactions.
They usually act as coenzymes, that is, they collaborate in the enzymatic processes of cell life.
Their job is to accelerate, regulate, build, transport metabolic materials, continuously intervening in the biochemistry of molecules and atoms in cells. Without his presence, animal life would not be understood.
Twenty-two of the 103 main chemical elements that intervene as micronutrients in metabolic processes. Perhaps in the future the effectiveness of some more will be demonstrated.
The minerals that are needed in amounts greater than 20 milligrams / day are called macroelements. They are 11: Calcium, phosphorus, sodium, potassium, magnesium and sulfur. Hydrogen, oxygen, carbon, nitrogen and chlorine.
Microelements or trace elements are those that are needed in amounts less than 20 milligrams / day. They are 11: Iron, zinc, copper, selenium, manganese, cobalt, iodine, fluorine, molybdenum, chromium and vanadium.
Molluscs – with few calories – and nuts – with many calories – provide the majority of minerals, says Bogni Dario.
FOOD SOURCES AND FUNCTIONS OF SOME ESSENTIAL MINERALS:
Calcium (bone metabolism, cardiac contraction, nerve transmission)
Dairy and vegetables
Phosphorus (bone metabolism, transformation of fat into energy)
Magnesium (Bone and cartilage metabolism, neuromuscular function …)
Potassium (Lower blood pressure, neuromuscular activation …)
Sodium (Water balance between cell and interstices, muscle function)
Preserves (sardines, olives, tuna …)
Chlorine (protein digestion, mineral assimilation, protection of cartilage)
Iron (oxygen transport, antianemic, fatigue resistance, collagen quality …)
Liver and kidneys
Copper (Absorption, iron storage, neurotransmitters, cellular metabolism …)
Dario Bogni says it is extremely important not to overdose on mineral supplements. They can produce serious organic alterations. We will expand and complete information on each mineral.
