We humans make up about 96% of carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, vitamins, etc., and the remaining 4% is minerals. Minerals make up only about 4% of the human body, but because they are not synthesized in the body, they must be ingested from daily meals.
Carbohydrates, proteins and lipids are called the 3 major nutrients. This is a very important nutrients as a raw material for the body and as a fuel to generate energy. However, it can not be said that keeping only 3 major nutrients can keep you healthy. Minerals, vitamins and dietary fiber play a role in regulating and helping the actions of the 3 major nutrients. Together these three are called the “6 major nutrients.” If these are not balanced, the 3 major nutrients will not be able to work well as energy and raw materials for the body, resulting in obesity and upset. Nutrients help each other to exert their power, so taking multiple nutrients rather than taking nutrients alone, such as iron and vitamins, has a synergistic effect and helps the body to renew.
Inorganic minerals can be easily absorbed by humans by passing through plants and animals which like passing through natural filters, that is, they are natural essential minerals. In other words, inorganic minerals in soil and seawater become natural essential minerals when absorbed by plants and seaweed. Inorganic minerals are metals, and the absorption efficiency of the human body is poor so that iron can not be absorbed even if iron nails are licked. Eating spinach, which is rich in natural essential minerals, can be absorbed efficiently by the body to remove iron.
Enzymes are catalyzed proteins that are made in the cells of living organisms, and are molecules that function as catalysts for chemical reactions that occur in living organisms.
Some of these enzymes work only with enzymes, while others cannot work without the help of nutrients other than enzymes. The nutrients required for the enzyme to work are called “coenzymes”. Coenzymes include minerals and vitamins, but minerals that cannot be synthesized by the human body are very important. Again, minerals need to be taken from the diet, so think about ways to consume them efficiently.
Natural Essential MineralsPlants absorb earth’s inorganic minerals with the help of good rhizobia and mycorrhizal fungi and change the state of the minerals through photosynthesis. Natural Essential Minerals which are minerals contained in the plant. Minerals absorbed by plants are ultra-fine and ionized, so they have a high absorption rate and are discharged without accumulating in the body even if ingested extra.
※Natural Essential Minerals are minerals that are protein bound or ionized.
Inorganic MineralsThis refers to minerals extracted by crushing or dissolving (dilute sulfuric acid) soil, rocks, seawater, and shells. Large particles, <8-12% absorption rate in the body, it can collect in the body when taken in large quantities and may have a bad effect on the body.

|Calcium is an essential part of bones and teeth. The heart, nerves, and blood-clotting systems also need calcium to work.
|Phosphate combines with calcium to form the hard structure of your bones and teeth. It also works on cell repair and growth and help control acid-base balance.
|Potassium are important in managing high blood pressure (HBP or hypertension) because potassium lessens the effects of sodium.
|Sulfur helps provide strength to hair, skin and nails and supports skin’s suppleness and elasticity. Sulfur is required for detoxification of the body in expelling poisons and modern chemicals that the body regularly ingests consistently.
|Chlorine regulates the production of gastric juice and gastric acid, helps the liver work, and removes waste products in the body. In addition, it balances the acid and alkali in the blood.
|Sodium plays a role in adjusting the osmotic pressure in the body, the pH value of the cell fluid. It promotes the absorption of minerals such as calcium into the blood.
|Magnesium is a cofactor in more than 300 enzyme systems that regulate diverse biochemical reactions in the body, including protein synthesis, muscle and nerve function, blood glucose control, and blood pressure regulation.
|Iron constitutes hemoglobin, the main component of red blood cells, and plays an important role in transporting oxygen to cells. It is effective for anemia prevention and improves the skin color.
|Zinc is needed for proper immune function (keeping you healthy), wound healing, cell division and growth, physical growth and development, and even your senses of smell and taste.
|Iron is an essential element for blood production. About 70% of your body’s iron is found in the red blood cells of your blood called hemoglobin and in muscle cells called myoglobin. Myoglobin, in muscle cells, accepts, stores, transports and releases oxygen.
|Manganese is a cofactor for many enzymes. Through the action of these enzymes , manganese is involved in amino acid, cholesterol, glucose, and carbohydrate metabolism; reactive oxygen species scavenging; bone formation; reproduction; and immune response.
|Iodine is needs to make thyroid hormones. These hormones control the body’s metabolism and many other important functions. The body also needs thyroid hormones for proper bone and brain development during pregnancy and infancy.
|Selenium is a constituent of more than two dozen selenoproteins that play critical roles in reproduction, thyroid hormone metabolism, DNA synthesis, and protection from oxidative damage and infection.
|Molybdenum is an element that is part of enzymes (natural substances essential for body metabolism) that are involved in the production of waste products prior to excretion. In the unlikely event you have molybdenum deficiency, your body would not be able to process amino acids containing sulfur.
|Cobalt plays a major role in the process of erythropoiesis, the process wherein erythrocytes or red blood cells are produced. Anemia is a main cause of a cobalt deficiency.
|Chromium is an essential trace element that enhances insulin function and influences carbohydrate, protein and fat metabolism. It has been suggested that chromium could be used as an adjunct to weight loss and to improve blood sugar control in people with diabetes.
