Introducing the major minerals

The following major minerals are essential for human beings:
_ Calcium
_ Phosphorus
_ Magnesium
_ Sulfur
_ Sodium
_ Potassium
_ Chloride
Note: Sodium, potassium, and chloride, also known as the principal electrolytes.
Although sulfur, a major mineral, is an essential nutrient for human beings, it’s almost never included in nutritional books and/or charts. Why? Because it’s an integral part of all proteins. Any diet that provides adequate protein also provides adequate sulfur.
After you’ve checked out proteins, come on back to look at the major minerals in minute detail.
