Trace Minerals and Why You Need Them

The body needs trace minerals in very small amounts. Note that iron is considered to be a trace mineral.

Trace elements function primarily as catalysts in enzyme systems; some metallic ions, such as iron and copper, participate in oxidation-reduction reactions in energy metabolism. Iron, as a constituent of hemoglobin and myoglobin, also plays a vital role in the transport of oxygen.
