All of the ingredients in Only Minerals have important functions in the body other than supporting bones and joints. Calcium is important to heart health, brain health, and blood clotting. Magnesium is critical to heart health and blood pressure. Trace minerals such as chromium, vanadium, and manganese help regulate blood sugar. Taking Only Minerals supports many aspects of health.
As we age, our production of stomach acids decreases, making it more difficult for our bodies to dissolve and absorb many minerals. The ingredients in Only Minerals are mostly in citrate form, to ensure proper dissolution and absorption.
How SISU Only Minerals Helps
Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body. Our bones and teeth contain more than 99 percent of the body’s total calcium and it is well known that adequate calcium is essential to strong bones. However, calcium in the blood is also essential. When blood calcium becomes low, calcium is released from the bone into the blood. This can contribute to osteomalacia or osteoporosis
Magnesium - Second only to potassium in its concentration in the body’s cells, 60 percent of the magnesium in the body is in the bones. It plays a crucial role in the metabolism of calcium. Magnesium is also important in controlling the production of a pro-inflammatory substance called Interleukin 6 (IL-6). Abnormal production of IL-6 is a factor in inflammation-based autoimmune disorders such as osteoporosis and RA.
Selenium is a powerful antioxidant and provides vital support to the immune system. As many bone and joint disorders are triggered by autoimmune malfunction, a strong immune system is vital to bone and joint health. This appears to be supported by the fact that selenium levels tend to be low in people with RA and other inflammatory disorders.
Zinc is in every body cell, is a component of over 200 enzymes, and is necessary for the proper action of many hormones. There is a high concentration of zinc in bone, suggesting its importance to bone health. It is also important to proper function of the immune system, suggesting that it may play a role in preventing the development of autoimmune disorders such as RA.
Copper is an essential trace mineral involved in several key enzymatic reactions in the body. It is necessary for the function of an enzyme that is important in developing collagen, a substance that contributes to the strength of bone and cartilage. Copper deficiency leads to weak collagen, which can manifest as osteoporosis and other bone and joint abnormalities.
Silicon is the second most abundant element on earth, after oxygen. It is required for strong development of skin, ligaments, tendons, and bone. It is also necessary to the proper function of an enzyme that plays a role in the formation of collagen, and is therefore vital to bone and joint health.
Other Trace Minerals on SISU Only Minerals
Research has shown that healthy bone matrix is made up of numerous trace minerals, some of which are also important in fighting autoimmune disorders. For example, some studies have suggested that vanadium and manganese may be important both in supporting development of strong bones and in combating inflammation.
