Back to Basics Part 3: Minerals and Aloe Vera are Tiny but Tough 3/30/2011
In today’s final installment, let’s learn a little about minerals and aloe vera.
Minerals are substances that are integral to health maintenance, but must be either supplied by diet or taken as a supplement. The body only uses small quantities of minerals each day, but their impact on our health is huge.
Minerals’ tiny molecules support a wide array of functions that you may not realize are happening! For example, iron supports the formation of red blood cells that are responsible for carrying oxygen.* Potassium, an important electrolyte, supports cellular activities, which, in turn support muscle contraction.* For thyroid function and growth, as well as growth and development during pregnancy and infancy, the body relies on iodine.*
And while we’re applauding the efforts of the little guys, let’s give a shout-out to aloe vera! Aloe vera had its media heyday a few years back, but now it’s happy to play its organic glycol-nutrient-rich role as part of the Vemma formula. It has always been an important part of the Vemma story as well as historically, since it’s been used medicinally for thousands of years.
We hope you’ve enjoyed getting to know the nutrients that work behind the scenes to make sure that the basics are covered! Remember, the body can’t produce these ingredients on its own, so it’s essential we include them in our diet. Vemma helps shore up gaps in your diet that leave you short of these basic but important micronutrients, in the most delicious way!
