- Phosphorus makes up about 1% of the body's total weight and is the second most common mineral in the human body after calcium.
- Of the body's total phosphate, 85% is found in bones and teeth, 1% is present in extracellular fluid, and the remaining 14% is distributed in other tissues where it playsa crucial role in the formation of cell membranes, nucleic acids, high energyphosphate esters (ATP), and intracellular signaling proteins.
- Phosphorus works as a structural component of bones, teeth, and DNA/RNA and allows lipid membranes and circulating lipoproteins to be bipolar.
- Phosphorus performs important metabolic functions such as producing and storing energy in phosphate bonds (ATP), regulating gene transcription, activating enzymecatalysis, buffering blood, and enabling signal transduction of regulatory pathways affecting a variety of organ functions, from renal excretion to immune response.
- Phosphorus also helps to reduce post-workout muscle aches.
- Other vitamins and minerals like vitamin D, iodine, magnesium, and zinc need phosphorus to be balanced and used.

- Every cell in your body contains zinc, which is the second-most abundant tracemineral in the body after iron.
- About 1.5 g of zinc are present in the bodies of women and 2.5 g in those of men overall.
- Majority of zinc is stored in skeletal muscle & bones.
- Even though the body only requires minute amounts of zinc, nearly 100 enzymes depend on it to perform essential chemical reactions.
- Zinc plays a crucial role in the production of DNA, cell proliferation, the synthesis of proteins, the repair of damaged tissue, and the maintenance of a strong immune system.
- A sufficient amount of zinc is needed during periods of rapid growth, such as childhood, adolescence, and pregnancy, as it aids in cell growth and multiplication.
- The smell and taste sensations are also influenced by zinc.
-In hospitals, zinc is frequently used as a treatment for burns, certain ulcers, and other skin lesions.
- Zinc may be an effective anti-inflammatory, immune system booster, age-relatedillness risk reducer, wound healer, and acne treatment.

- Iron is a crucial mineral important to the body which occurs naturally in many foods, and can be found as a dietary supplement.
- Hemoglobin makes up the majority of the 3 to 4 grammes of elemental iron that adults have.
- And the remaining iron is stored in the form of ferritin or hemosiderin (adegradation product of ferritin) in the liver, spleen, and bone marrow or is located in myoglobin in muscle tissue.
- Heme and nonheme are the two primary types of dietary iron. Only nonheme iron canbe found in plants and iron-fortified meals, but both heme and nonheme iron can be found in meat, seafood, and poultry.
- Hemoglobin, a red blood cell protein that transports oxygen from the lungs to the tissues, requires iron as a necessary component.
- Myoglobin, a protein that transports and stores oxygen especially in muscle tissues, also contains iron.
- Children's healthy brain development, growth, and appropriate cell and hormone synthesis all depend on enough iron intake.
- Iron, although being a mineral present in minuscule quantities in the body, is very vital for men and women of all ages, to ensure optimal metabolism, growth and development.

- Copper is an important trace mineral for nutrition that can be found in some foods and supplements.
- Copper is primarily found in bone and muscle tissue and is absorbed in the small intestine.
- A typical adult human consumes about 1 mg of copper daily, of which about half is absorbed & copper absorption is increased, when animal protein is consumed in stead of plant protein,
- Red blood cells are formed in the body with the help of copper and iron.
- Copper functions as a cofactor for various enzymes (referred to as "cuproenzymes") required for the production of connective tissue, neurotransmitters, neuropeptides, andiron metabolism.
- copper-containing superoxide dismutases are primarily responsible for protection against oxidative damage.
- copper regulates a number of physiological processes, including angiogenesis, neurohormone balance, and the development of the brain, pigmentation, and immune system.
- The liver plays a central role in copper homeostasis by altering the excretion ofcopper into the bile to compensate for loss in the stool.

- Potassium is an important intracellular cation which is needed by all tissues in the body.
- Potassium is naturally present in many foods and can also be found as a dietary supplement.
- About 80% potassium is stored in muscle cells & remaining 20% is present in bone tissue, liver & red blood cells.
- Potassium as electrolytes carries a small electrical charge that stimulates a variety of cell & neuron activities.
- The primary function of potassium in the body is to support the maintenance of regular fluid levels inside our cells.
- Potassium regulates proper blood pressure and helps in the contraction of muscles.
- As we age, bone loss and recurrent kidney stones may be lessened by potassium.
- A sufficient intake of dietary potassium lowers the risk of stroke and coronary heart disease and promotes the health of the heart and bones.

- Chromium is a crucial mineral that the body needs in small amounts.
- Chromium occurs naturally in a variety of foods and also available as dietary supplements.
- Chromium is stored mainly in the liver, spleen, soft tissue, and bone.
- Around 5% of the chromium in blood is unbound; the majority is attached to plasma proteins, especially transferrin.
- Chromium improves the action of the hormone insulin.
- Chromium also helps in the breakdown and absorption of carbohydrate, proteins, and fats. Chromium absorption is boosted by vitamin C and vitamin B3 (niacin).
- Chromium uplifts brain power and nervous system functions by influencing interactions with neuronal cells and tissues.
- Chromium enhances the cholesterol synthesis and also helps to regulate the body's fatty acid levels.
- Chromium improves heart health and controlling the body's blood sugar levels.

- Molybdenum is an important mineral that the body needs in small amounts.
- Molybdenum is naturally present in many foods and can also be consumed as dietary supplements.
- Molybdenum is accumulated in the liver, kidneys, and bone. If needed, the kidneys are able to remove extra amounts from the body.
- Molybdenum acts as a cofactor for four enzymes. (Sulfite oxidase, Xanthine oxidase, Aldehyde oxidase & mitochondrial amidoxime-reducing component (mARC).
- These enzymes participate in the body's digestion of sulfites as well as the degradation of waste materials and pollutants.
- Molybdenum helps to metabolize DNA and proteins.

- Selenium is an essential mineral that the body needs in small amounts.
- Selenium occurs naturally in many foods and can be found as dietary supplements.
- The majority of selenium in the body is accumulated in muscle tissue, whereas, the thyroid gland has the highest concentration of selenium due to several seleno proteins that support thyroid function.
- Selenium is an important component of several enzymes and proteins known asseleno proteins that aid in the synthesis of DNA & defend against cellular damage.
- Seleno proteins also regulates reproduction and the metabolism of thyroid hormones.
- Selenium is a potent antioxidant that fights oxidative stress and aids in protecting your body against chronic diseases like cancer and heart disease.
- Selenium-rich foods may benefit Alzheimer's patients with memory loss and cognitive decline by preventing mental deterioration.
- Seleno proteins plays a major role in breakdown of peroxides, which can harm DNA and tissues and cause inflammation and other health difficulties.
