8 Minerals Every Arthritis Sufferer Should Know About

Minerals are essential to maintain our bodies in top condition ...

In fact, our body is composed of many minerals, but unfortunately does not produce the minerals needed for a healthy body.

A deficiency of minerals can lead to various health problems, including arthritis!

The most common minerals used to reduce arthritic pains are:

Boron ? This trace mineral aids in bone health.

Calcium ? This is a much-needed mineral for bone health.

Magnesium ? Magnesium helps keep calcium in balance within the system.

Zinc ? This mineral is necessary for bone growth, but is often lacking in arthritic patients.

Manganese ? Manganese is also necessary for bone growth. Do NOT ingest manganese with calcium because they can work against each other.

Copper ? Copper helps to strengthen connective tissue.

Germanium ? This antioxidant helps with pain relief.

Sulfur ? A lack of sulfur can result in deterioration of ligaments, cartilage, collagen and tendons.

Our traditional source of minerals has been from fresh fruit, vegetables and some dairy products. Today we have to look at other sources to get sufficient minerals for a healthy diet. Some of the reasons for this are:

1) Loss of minerals in the soil
2) Modern food processing methods
3) Popularity of 'Junk' foods

An increasing number of people are turning to mineral supplements for their source of minerals.
