Minerals/trace elements

Indispensable for metabolism: minerals and trace elements. Minerals must be taken with food, and although they do not provide us with food energy, they do provide us with vital, inorganic compounds. The organism needs them for many tasks, e.g. for the optimal functioning of the metabolism. Minerals are found in the body in concentrations above 50 mg per kilogram of body weight. Trace elements are present in the body in smaller amounts than 50 mg per kilogram of body weight. For example, they are responsible for building body tissue, bones and teeth, but also for the undisturbed functioning of the body's metabolism.


Chromium is involved in various metabolic processes. The trace element fulfils important tasks in sugar metabolism by improving the absorption of glucose into the cells. Learn more about it here.
