Minerals include:

CalciumBuilds and maintains bones & teeth, important in regulation of heart muscles & nerve transmission, pH of digestive system

Chromium Helps regulate blood sugar levels, and thought to be instrumental in keeping cholesterol low

Coppercatalyst for body-building enzymes connected with muscle & nerve fibres, aids hair pigment
