From the expert

Minerals are essential for the normal functioning of the body. Some minerals are present in large amounts whereas others, like manganese, exist in trace amounts but are still important for overall health and well being.

Minerals are obtained through diet and are required for the production of enzymes and hormones, sugar control and the formation of bone, muscles, connective tissue and blood cells. They also aid in the metabolism of fats, proteins and carbohydrates.

Mineral deficiencies can occur for several reasons. A lack of a mineral intake due to a restricted diet can cause a deficiency, with iron being the most common mineral deficiency. Some people have a difficulty absorbing certain minerals from food such as those with coeliac disease. Pregnant women, children and those recovering from an illness or injury typically have an increased requirement of nutrients. A deficiency may occur due to an increased need for the mineral in the body.

The Mineral Blood Test includes tests for 6 key minerals to ensure your levels are healthy and to check for any deficiencies or excesses.
