VITAMINS ARE USELESS WITHOUT THEIR MINERAL CO-FACTORS
Everyone knows that we need vitamins in our diet, either through food or supplements, to prevent various diseases and to maintain our health. What many people don’t know is that these complex chemical substances (vitamins) control the body’s ability to absorb minerals. If there are no minerals in our bodies, vitamins are redundant. Interestingly, if our bodies have no vitamins, some minerals can still be utilised, but if our bodies have no minerals, vitamins become a totally useless commodity.
Our bodies are made up of 100 trillion cells, 600 muscles, 206 bones and 22 internal organs. Our various bodily components need a total of 90 nutrients and these nutrients need each other to work properly. When eating a balanced diet or taking supplements, it’s vital to understand that every vitamin we take into our systems needs a mineral cofactor to switch it on or off. We can take vitamins galore, but if we aren’t getting our correct mineral intake, these vitamins cannot be used by the body.
Our bodies are capable of manufacturing certain vitamins but they cannot manufacture minerals, we must get these from the food we eat and the water we drink or from supplements.
The Food We Eat
It is a sad fact that the fresh food that we eat today is so lacking in minerals that we cannot eat enough to get the minerals we need to ensure the vitamins we are digesting are actually doing us some good. Unless some dramatic action is taken to replenish the mineral balance of our soils worldwide, our health is going to suffer unless we take mineral supplements to remedy the situation.
It is important to realise that our intake of minerals is responsible for our good health. As Dr. Charles Northern and Dr. Bernard Spur stated in their book, Know Your Nutrition, “It is not commonly known that in the absence of minerals, vitamins have no function. Lacking vitamins, our system can make use of the minerals, but lacking minerals, vitamins are useless.”
