Mineral salts are essential to the body and its metabolic function.

Mineral salts take part in the balancing of fluids, the development of enzymes and hormones, the composition of bones and teeth, the transmission of nerve impulses, and muscle contraction.

What Do Mineral Salts Do?

Mineral salts are responsible for distinguishing macronutrients (such as calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, etc.) present in large amounts and trace elements (such as iron and copper) present in very small quantities.



These are nutrients that cannot be produced naturally by the body and must be supplied by food.
