Minerals

Minerals are needed for the body to work properly, for growth, development & for maintaining normal health. They are important to build strong bones & teeth, blood, skin, hair, nerve function, muscle & for metabolic processes such as those that turn our food into energy.

Different minerals are needed in varying amounts but they are all essential. No nutrient can change the way our body or organs work on its own, it is balance that brings it all together.

Children, pregnant, breastfeeding mothers & older people may need to amend their daily intake depending on the type of mineral.

*Note that excessively high intakes of minerals can be toxic.

Wise Owl’s vitamins and minerals are truly natural supplements made using high quality ingredients, in a whole food matrix. They can provide your body with the levels of nutrients our ancestors consumed, as nature intended. Because they are made from real food, your body is able to absorb and use the active nutrients much more efficiently.

The table below highlights the main functions of the minerals & the key foods that supply them.

Calcium Elemental plays a role in the formation & repair of bones & teeth, normal nerve & muscle function & normal coagulation. Our Calcium supplement is made using whole food ingredients in their natural food state, reducing unwanted side effects.

Iron Elemental & Molybdenum Elemental - The major function of iron is to combine with protein & copper in making haemoglobin. Molybdenum positively affects the transportation & release of iron in our bodies. 'Food State' Iron is a gentle, non-constipating & well absorbed supplement.

Magnesium 100mg can help with energy, nerve & muscle function, cramps, sleep, blood pressure, absorption of nutrients... & much more. It has been estimated that up to 75% of people in the western world (& parts of Asia) can be considered as magnesium deficient.

Magnesium 40mg is a smaller dose of magnesium than the 100mg, in easy to swallow small capsules. Natural food sources of Magnesium are far better absorbed than inorganic sources. Wise Owl's 'Food State' Magnesium is made using whole food ingredients, so utilised by the body more effectively.

Selenium 200µg with Iodine & Vitamin B12 - Selenium is an especially important micro mineral & a powerful antioxidant. Nutritional surveys have found that it is likely up to 80% of the western world is deficient in selenium.

Selenium 100µg may help immunity, ageing, thyroid & male fertility. Selenium is a natural antioxidant that protects against free radicals & appears to preserve elasticity of tissue, which becomes less elastic with ageing.

Introduction to Minerals

We need minerals in our diet because they are essential for a variety of bodily functions.

They are important to build strong bones and teeth, blood, skin, hair, nerve function, muscle and for metabolic processes such as those that turn our food into energy. This means that minerals are needed for the body to work properly, for growth, development, and overall, for maintaining normal health.

Different minerals are needed in different amounts but they are all essential.

Minerals are grouped together depending on how much we need on a daily basis so the minerals that are needed more in bigger amounts on a daily basis are known as the minerals, macro-minerals or major minerals.

The minerals that are needed less and in smaller amounts are known as micro-minerals or “trace elements”.

Children, pregnant and breastfeeding mothers and older people may need to amend their daily intake depending on the type of mineral.

*Note that excessively high intakes of minerals can be toxic.

No nutrient can change the way our body or organs work on its own, it is balance that brings it all together.

**Keep out of reach of children

Taking minerals does not make up for an unhealthy diet, and minerals are an insufficient substitute for nutrients from fresh fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. However, a general multivitamin and mineral supplement can be a good safeguard against periodic vitamin shortfalls in your diet.
