92 basic minerals, 27 of them are used elements in the body

92 basic minerals

There are about 101 minerals found in the earth's soil, 27 of those minerals are used in the human body.

An excess or lack of each one of the 27 minerals in the human body can increase or lessen the availability of certain other mineral.


Hair analysis can reveal the minerals, which you hold an excess of in your body. The following listing will tell you how they interact with other minerals, in the sense of helping or impeding them.


For example, an excess of molybdenum in your body will increase your body's absorption of the dangerous mineral, copper, which hair analysis may reveal that you already have too much of. This information can be helpful, if you are determined to reduce the quantity of certain dangerous elements in your body.

For example, looking through the list, you will see that a slight increase in the amount of selenium and zinc taken into your body will help eliminate the dangerous lead in your body. Lead in your body will interfere with your body's absorption and use of three very important major minerals: calcium, iron, and potassium. But, of course, never take very much of the trace minerals. Trace minerals are needed by the body in extremely small; although they are extremely critical to physical function.


(1) Increase the absorption and use of

(2) Reduces the absorption and use of

(3) The absorption and use of is reduce by


Molybdenum (Mo is its chemical abbreviation) (1) increases the absorption and use of copper and sulfur. (2) Molybdenum reduces the absorption and use of phosphorus. (3) The absorption and use of molybdenum is reducing by nitrogen.
