Minerals are chemical elements found in the body either in their elemental form or complexed with organic compounds. Like vitamins, they are essential for normal cell functioning. The two most prevalent minerals, calcium and phosphorus, are major components of bone while sodium and potassium are found in all tissue fluids, both within and around cells. Magnesium, chloride, sulfur, and zinc are other minerals that play a key role in cell function. The trace elements iron, manganese, copper, and iodine are found in much smaller quantities, but play essential roles as catalysts in basic cellular chemical processes.

General recommendations for nutritional supplementation:
To avoid stomach upsets and to promote better absorption supplements should always be taken earlier, or in the middle of a meal.
It is also advisable not to lie down immediately after taking any pills. This is to ensure that the pills have made their way into the stomach and are not left sitting in the oesophagus where they could cause discomfort and irritation.
When taking several doses of a nutrient, it is better to split it up into smaller amounts and to spread it through the day with food.
