In this article, the trace minerals, nickel, tungsten, germanium, and aluminum will be discussed. Let’s begin with nickel.

Nickel plays important roles in the biology of microorganisms in the body. Nickel helps provide optimal growth, healthy skin, strengthens the bone structure, and enhances the absorption of zinc. Nickel deficiency causes depressed growth rate and dermatitis.

There’s not much information about tungsten, but it is known by medical researchers as having an effect on several enzymes in a fashion similar to molybdenum.
Germanium has many important medicinal properties. In the body, germanium attaches itself to oxygen molecules. This has the unexpected effect of making our bodies more effective at getting oxygen to the tissues of our body. The increased supply of oxygen in our bodies helps to improve our immune system. It also helps the body excrete harmful toxins. Perhaps the most exciting thing about germanium is that it can stimulate the human immune system to fight cancer cells.

A great resource for trace minerals is in coral calcium. To learn more:

Until recently, aluminum was thought to be useless to the life process and can only cause harm, especially when it is consumed in excess contributing to a deterioration of mental function. Termed dialysis dementia, the condition has been found in individuals receiving dialysis treatment from which they accumulate high amounts of aluminum. Excess aluminum has also been implicated in the development of Alzheimer’s disease. Aluminum can adversely affect mental function and bone integrity, as well as inhibit important enzyme systems in the body and interfere with normal immune function.

Yet, in a trace amount, aluminum is now thought to be involved in the action of a small number of enzymes.
