What kinds of minerals are needed by the human body? Where to get them?

Usually, people need two types of minerals: major minerals and trace minerals. People need lots of major minerals including calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, sodium, potassium, chloride, and sulfur, while they also need small amount of trace minerals such as iron, manganese, copper, iodine, zinc, cobalt, fluoride, and selenium.

Minerals can be found in a large number of foods in various forms. These are foods like meat, cereals, fish, milk and dairy products, vegetables, fruits (especially dried fruits), etc.

Which minerals are essential and what benefits do they bring to the body?

Essential minerals include calcium, iron and potassium.
Calcium helps strengthen bones and teeth and regulates the heartbeat.
Iron helps to make red blood cells to carry oxygen around your body.
Potassium helps your body control fluid balance and keeps your heart healthy and functioning properly.
Essential micronutrients include iodine and zinc.
Iodine helps your body produce thyroid hormones, keeping your cells and metabolic rate healthy.
Zinc helps make new cells and enzymes that process carbohydrates, fats and proteins in food.

Which ones should not be consumed too much?

Regardless of which minerals the body needs, a little more intake or less intake in a short period of time does not have much effect on the organism because there is a self-regulating system in the body. When the intake is reduced, the body will recover (reabsorb) some more through the recycling system, and vice versa. Minerals, like many things in life, more is not necessarily better. Many minerals can be toxic in high doses, with side effects ranging from constipation to liver and kidney damage.


Muscle relaxation, constipation, and coma when large amounts of calcium are consumed along with absorbable bases.

Excess iron is associated with an increased risk of multiple organ tumors and cardiovascular disease.


Too much intake of zinc can impair immune function to some extent, resulting in acute abdominal pain, diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting.


Excessive selenium content makes people get chronic selenium poison with symptoms like hair loss, limbs numbness, and convulsions.


Excessive sodium may lead to high blood pressure in some people.
