Your Body-Maids Keeping Things in Order

Minerals co-exist with vitamins and their roles are very closely related. For example, Vitamin C helps increase the absorption of iron, and calcium absorption is improved in the presence of Vitamin D. Some of the complex B vitamins are absorbed only when combined with phosphorus, and zinc helps the liver release Vitamin A.Minerals also help maintain the delicate water balance essential for mental and physical functions. They assist the body to keep all fluids from becoming too acid or alkaline, and aid in the creation of antibodies. All the minerals needed by the body (that are known) must be obtained from the foods we eat.
