Our body requires a few essentials in order to keep us going. Water, vitamins and nutrients are the staples we need to stay healthy. But did you know that our body also needs seven essential minerals? These minerals include sodium, potassium, magnesium, chloride, calcium, phosphorus and sulfur.

Minerals can be divided into two groups: Major minerals (macrominerals) and minor minerals (microminerals). Both groups are essential for our body to work at its best and perform its daily functions. We can get these minerals through our diet, but if we don’t follow a healthy balanced diet, it can lead to a deficiency.

One mineral deficiency in particular is magnesium, and as it’s the fourth most important mineral in the body, it’s important to always have the right amount. In fact, magnesium is so important that it plays a role in more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body, playing a role in good muscle and nerve function, heart rhythm and a healthy immune system.
