Minerals carry out very important functions in the body. The body cannot produce minerals, so we need to get them through food and supplements. A balanced, alkaline diet can provide essential minerals, but too few Americans are meeting all their nutritional requirements through diet alone. Alkalizing Minerals+ can help bridge this gap. The minerals in Alkalizing Minerals+ can also help you maintain an alkaline balance because they are in alkalizing forms.
Responsible for regulating vasodilation (blood pressure), muscle contractions, nerve signal transmission, and hormone secretion (1). Calcium also plays a role in egg production, regulating heartbeat, and contraction of smooth (involuntary) muscles like your digestive tract! An increase in ionized calcium leads to an increase in muscle contractility (2).
Helps activate enzymes responsible for repairing DNA. Mg acts as a cofactor for over 300 enzymes. It is involved in transporting electrolytes across the cell membrane. All reactions that involve ATP require Mg++ ions to be present, making Mg essential for harnessing energy from the food we eat. Mg is believed to reduce incidence of hypersensitivity reactions because a Mg++ deficit can stimulate histamine release from mast cells, causing what we know as an allergic reaction. Mg is necessary for activation of the sodium-potassium pump, which regulates transport of these nutrients. Mg also regulates calcium-transport channels. (3) Magnesium intake is associated with lower blood pressure, and serum magnesium is negatively associated with diastolic blood pressure (4).
Helps pancreas create insulin, aids in blood clotting, bone health
Chromium stimulates fatty acid and cholesterol synthesis, contributes to breakdown of carbohydrates in body (glucose), and aids in insulin action.
Selenium acts as an antioxidant, is a catalyst in production of thyroid hormone, required for sperm motility and may decrease risk of miscarriage in pregnant women, deficiency has been linked to adverse mood states (6).
Plays a role in collagen formation, maintaining nerve cells, and in red blood cell production.
