Essential, Non-Essential and Correctional Minerals
There are three kinds of minerals at Angstrom Minerals. Essential minerals, which are essential for life. Non-essential minerals, minerals that can produce a desired reaction or property in the body. Last, correctional minerals, minerals that do not build the body, but accomplish some desired changes in the body with side effects. This is a very loose definition.
There are building block minerals- these are hard to overdose on. Minerals like magnesium, calcium, zinc, and potassium. There are essential minerals that are toxic in excess like iron and copper. Minerals that the body only uses in very small amounts like vanadium, silica, molybdnum and boron.
Minerals come from the earth. They start out as rocks. If you stamp a mineral into a tablet, you have small rocks. The body cannot digest let alone absorb rocks.
In minerals, It Is All About ABSORPTION!
