The human body has a need for at least 16 minerals for optimum functioning. Minerals are usually categorised as "bulk" or "trace minerals". Some essential minerals we tend to get plenty of in the diet, for example sodium which we get from table salt. Other minerals are generally under consumed. Magnesium tends to be a mineral low in peoples diets, with few reaching the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) of 400mg's/day (minimum). Magnesium supplementation is an ideal solution.
Mineral supplements are ideal for those looking to assure their daily intake and fortify a lacking diet.
