The Magic Minerals of Potassium, Sodium,and Iron

by Tatiana Plesco

Vitamins are marvelous but not as spectacular and magical as minerals. Vitamins control the body’s ap-proportion of minerals. If we had no minerals, vitamins would have no function. Lack of vitamins, the body can use minerals, but if we lack minerals, vitamins become useless.

Interestingly the human body can produce some vitamins(vitamin D from sunshine or vitamin B in the intestinal tract). Unforchently the body cannot manufacture minerals so it must be supplied with the right food and water. Then minerals are adequately supplied; they make up robust human health.

Minerals starved foods massive threat to human race health. It is caused by lack of nutrients in food due to: 

The human body is dependant on balanced mineral diets for normal functioning. All living creature is made from minerals also. For example, our teeth and bones, mostly made from calcium or red blood cells, must have a sufficient amount of iron to prevent anemia.

It would be fair to say that vitamin stole all the spotlight in the marketing world, and minerals become slightly forgotten. Vitamins are essential, but minerals supply and advise vitamins on how to work in perfect harmony with mother nature. In nature, it is impossible to find a plant that carries total vitamin content unless minerals in large quantities also present.

If human cells supplied with the right minerals, the cells can reestablish their electrical balance and return to normal work mode.

To feed the body with the right nutrients, you would need a whole range of chemical minerals in their natural forms as possible. This body of yours also requires fats and amino acid(from proteins), vitamins witch along with minerals, needs to be replaced continuously.

The minerals must be their first or the other chemical elements not absorb correctly. In your young days, one’s health is excellent, and mineral supply is high cells replaces its self as fast as they die. Meanwhile, during illness and aging, when mineral supply depleted, the cell’s reproduction stops and finally resulting in death.

Today we talk in more detail only about three minerals potassium, sodium, and iron but here is a full list of the human body,s chemical-mineral content:

  • Oxygen-%65
  • Carbon-%18
  • Hydrogen-%10
  • Nitrogen-%3
  • Calcium-%2
  • Phosphorus-%1.1
  • Potassium-%0.35
  • Sulfur-%0.25
  • Sodium-%0.15
  • Chlorine-%0.15
  • Magnesium-%0.05
  • Iron-%0.004
  • Copper-%0.00015
  • Manganese-%0.00013
  • Iodine-%0.00004
  • Cobalt and zinc tiny amounts

Let’s start analyzing one at the time to get a better understanding and education about our nutritional health.


Let’s start from being clear potassium is necessary for human bodies. Potassium exists in body cells. It is an essential factor in the cell’s electrical potential and supports a healthy heart rhythm. Potassium works together with sodium and helps to maintain the balance of water in systems. This mineral is essential for blood pressure and gland function, as well as our nerves and muscular systems.

Potassium Deficiency (Hypokalemia)

Potassium Deficiency (Hypokalemia) 

  • Can lead to the distressed nervous system
  • Weak muscle control
  • Heart seizures
  • Digestive Problems
  • Tingling and Numbness
  • Heart Palpitations
  • Muscle Cramps and Spasms
  • Weakness and Fatigue
  • Breathing Difficulties

Hypokalemia has many causes but most often results from vomiting, adrenal gland disorders, diarrhea, or the use of diuretics. The most accurate diagnosis is achieved with blood tests to measure the potassium level. Muscle weakness and not feeling well in older adults should automatically lead to potassium deficiencies. Poor diets and aging, physical and mental stress leading to potassium loss. 

Meanwhile, eating foods rich in potassium or taking potassium supplements by mouth is all that is needed—potassium found in raw food like:) 

  • Dark green leaves
  • Sunflower seeds 
  • Blackstrap molasses
  • Butternut squash
  • White and black beans
  • Coconut water
  • Sweet potatoes
  • Avocados
  • Watermelon
  • Dried apricots
  • Potatoes
  • Tomato paste


Low sodium diets commercials have killed the desire of people to consume sodium. Sodium widely misunderstood and avoided by many people. Meanwhile, sodium acts as a constructor of the electric currents inside the body’s nerve cells. It also relaxes muscles.

In some cases, instead of restricting the use of salt, physicians recommend his heart patients dissolving sea salt or whole salt(contain minerals like iron) and sip it till symptoms get better.

Sodium presents in the body fluids and supports the balance in electrolyte cell function. By working together with potassium, it helps to correct and maintain the optimal balance of water in the human body.

Extreme sweating, while working out, seems to contribute to sodium loss and must be replaced after.

Whole sea salt(not sodium chloride) taken with other minerals is the healthiest option. It is vital for good health and related to adrenal glans. Sodium also needed by the body for the manufacture of hydrochloric acid. Root beets, celery, and milk are a few of the organic foods where you’ll find it naturally.

The normal hart requires a ratio of 100 part sodium, four parts of potassium, and two parts of calcium in the bloodstream.


Do you ever see a person with an abundance of energy, brightness in the eyes, and desire to live? Smiling and looking at you with pink cheeks and red lips? These benefits could be due to iron balance in the body. Lack of iron can cause anemia, weakness, nail ridding, lethargy, headache, fatigue, and the person will not look so healthy, as mentioned above.


Iron is crucial in the manufacture of functional red blood cells. Human bodies tend to collect iron from the food we consume. The human body does not well assimilate many forms of iron. Vitamin C and E big help for better assimilation and sufficient hydrochloric acid in the stomach is necessary for iron absorption.

Food rich in iron

  • Eggs(natural, free-range chicken organic)
  • Meats
  • Whole grain
  • Brewer’s yeast
  • Blackstrap molasses
  • Liver
  • Bread and cereals
  • Beans and lentils
  • Cashews
  • Tofu
  • Dark green leafy vegetables
  • Baked potatoes
