Just like vitamins, minerals are the building blocks that help to keep you healthy and stimulate a normal growth. We can find minerals in our diet and certain dietary supplements. The minerals we need in very small quantities, such as iron, iodine, fluorine and zinc, are called trace elements. Some examples of minerals that our body needs are calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and sodium.
Minerals and trace elements are absorbed by our body through the small intestine. A mineral deficiency is rare, but can be caused by a long-term illness, the long-term use of certain medicines or an unbalanced diet. If you absorb too many minerals over a long period of time, this can be harmful. It is best to avoid absorbing too much of the following minerals: magnesium, sodium, calcium, iodine, copper, selenium, zinc and molybdenum.
At Optiphar you can find a wide range of dietary supplements that are rich in minerals. They allow you to quickly treat any deficiencies. We also offer a very wide range of dietary supplements formulated with magnesium. In our range you will find all the premium brands, such as Solgar, Soria and Biotics.
