Calcium is important in the body to maintain not only bone health, but cardiovascular, nerve, and muscular health. Its benefits include strengthening bones and regulating blood pressure. Calcium is an essential component of both teeth and bones and is plentiful in the human body. It provides joint support in the bones and teeth and has a role in muscular contractions, hormone secretion, and neural impulses and blood system movement. Calcium is found in dairy products such as milk and cheese as well as broccoli and kale among other vegetables.
Iron is an important component of hemoglobin. Taking iron in supplements can improve a low hemoglobin level. Hemoglobin is the protein molecule in red blood cells with the function of carrying oxygen from the lungs to the body tissues and likewise returning carbon dioxide from the body tissues back to the lungs, also providing cells with the energy to function and maintaining the normal shape of red blood cells.
Abnormal hemoglobin can disrupt the red blood cell shape and impede the function and flow of the red blood cells. A low hemoglobin level is typically only slightly lower than the normal amount and wont affect bodily function much. However, very low hemoglobin levels may indicate anemia, low red blood cell count. Anemia is caused by such factors as: the loss of blood, nutritional deficiency such as excessive dieting, bone marrow problems including suppression from radiation, kidney failure, and abnormal hemoglobin structure (such as sickle cell anemia). A low hemoglobin level may lead to extreme fatigue, bruising, fainting, and in extreme cases, blood clotting. Iron supplements help to avoid the symptoms of low hemoglobin.
Zinc deficiencies are not uncommon. Zinc is needed for growth and maintenance of the body, including immune system function, wound healing, thyroid function, and more.
Selenium is a mineral found in the soil. Selenium naturally appears in water and some foods. While people only need a very small amount, selenium plays a key role in the metabolism. Selenium has a lot of antioxidant properties. Antioxidants protect cells from damage. Selenium has been studied for the treatment of dozens of conditions. They range from asthma to infertility. However it is inconclusive if selenium benefited the patient. People who are fed intravenously and anyone at risk to low selenium have the most benefits due to low selenium.
