Reacted Minerals for Superior Absorption

Reacted MineralsJacquie Eubanks RN BSN

Necessary for good health, proper function and biochemical reactions, essential dietary minerals break down into two categories: macrominerals such as, calcium, magnesium and others, and microminerals also known as trace elements. Utilized in greater amounts, macrominerals are stored by the body, primarily in bone and muscle tissue. Microminerals are just as vital to health as macrominerals but are required in smaller amounts for normal cellular function. As minerals are inorganic elements, they are not produced by plants, animals or humans. In nature, minerals are found in plants that absorb nutrients from soil and water, as well as in animals that consume plant foods. As the body doesn’t synthesize minerals, they must be obtained through whole foods, fortified foods or supplements.

Ideally, the foods we eat should supply the minerals we need for numerous vital bodily functions. These include proper fluid balance, nerve transmission, muscle contraction, healthy bones and teeth, immune health, energy metabolism, cellular function and normal growth, development and repair. However, the nutrient content of foods, especially regarding minerals, varies widely dependent upon soil and growing conditions. Several studies of food composition tables show an apparent decline in food nutrient content over the last few decades. Soil depletion is seen as largely due to chemical-based agriculture and industrial farming that has resulted in inadequate soil management and consequently, significant reductions of mineral levels in fruits and vegetables.

Minerals in a chelated or reacted state may have advantages over other forms of minerals, since reacted minerals are more likely to be biologically active and therefore more effectively utilized. A chelate is a chemical compound that binds a ligand molecule to a mineral. Ligands can be chains of hydrolyzed proteins, sugar molecules and other compounds, or can be single amino acids that serve to stabilize a mineral and enhance its effectiveness. As the bulk of mineral absorption occurs in the small intestine, efficient intestinal absorption is a key regulatory step in mineral homeostasis. Various factors influence mineral uptake in the digestive tract. During digestion minerals that are bound to amino acids are picked up by protein receptors, a process that facilitates enhanced mineral uptake.

Dietary minerals are actually chemical elements that perform biological actions. Some elements, such as sodium and potassium, function primarily as electrolytes; calcium and magnesium are well known for their role in structural support and like many other minerals are required for the production and function of a wide variety of enzymes necessary for normal metabolic reactions. Often seen as simply an insurance policy against deficiency-related disease, vitamins and minerals boost the immune system, guard us from the ravages of oxidative stress, fight heart disease and prevent or slow the progression of a variety of degenerative illnesses. For optimal heath, even a well-rounded diet that provides a base amount of natural absorbable nutrients may be improved with bioavailable, enhanced absorption vitamins and reacted minerals.
