Minerals deficiency and Metabolic Syndrome

Minerals

Minerals are as necessary for the growth of vegetables as they are for people. They provide proper cell function. The primary minerals required by the body include calcium and magnesium. Trace minerals are also required and include chromium, copper, iodine, manganese, selenium, and zinc. All these mine- rals are included in Nuturna Powerful-Strenght Diabetic Su- pport Formula.

The average diet is critically deficient due to mineral depletion

Mineral supplementation usage by diabetics is increasing because the average diet is critically deficient due to mineral depletion from soils and a diet of processed foods. It is well-documented that humans have evolved to be dependent upon plant-based minerals to prevent metabolic dysfunction.

Metabolic Syndrome

Metabolic dysfunction (also known as Metabolic Syndrome) includes insulin resistance (diabetes), hypertension (high blood pressure) and high cholesterol. Most people diagnosed with metabolic syndrome are overweight or obese.

Minerals must be consumed as part of a balanced diet, including a nutritional supplement that will complement your diet for optimal health. Unless you grow your own organic vegetables, you have no assurance you are getting su cient nutrients. Green vegetables, fruits and whole grains are known to be full of minerals. However, if the soil they are grown in is lacking or depleted of the proper nutrients, the plants will be de cient of the proper amounts of minerals to enrich your diet.

Essential part of life

Minerals are an essential part of life, and play a major role in our internal bodily functions. Good examples of some of the important roles that minerals play are in the absorption of vitamins and for the passage of nutrients in the blood stream.

Both genetic factors and environmental issues in uence the probability and severity of this syndrome. Family history of diabetes, hypertension and early heart disease; as well as a low activity or sedentary lifestyle, and continued weight gain sig- ni cantly raise the risk of developing the metabolic syndrome. Whether you are diagnosed with diabetes, hypertension, or heart disease, left unchecked, with no change in lifestyle habits, the likelihood of being diagnosed with all three is widespread.

Diabetes Mellitus is expected to reach 300 million people globally by 2020

Metabolic syndrome is present in approximately 5% of people that are under weight to normal weight, 22% who are overweight and 60% who are obese.
