Minerals are of cornerstone importance to human function, and work synergistically with the vitamins in our body to normalize metabolism, growth, development and cellular activity. Deficiency of only milligrams in just one mineral can often lead to serious health problems. As a chief component in both enzyme and coenzyme function, the minerals in our body play a key role in speeding up the chemical reactions that take place in our body.
     Men typically need more magnesium, B vitamins, and less iron than women. Men also need more calories and protein to support their generally larger size and often-higher activity levels.
