Trace elements, essential nutrients for health

Trace elements are mineral substances present in our body in small amounts, specifically less than 1 mg/kg of body weight. They are essential in our body, they serve to have good health and physical shape.

In 1897, Gabriel Bertrand discovered the need for trace elements for health, in infinitesimal quantities. But it was not until 1932, when Jacques Ménétrier oriented his research in the field of trace elements, discovering that any lack of these elements entails functional disturbances in the body, which are balanced again if administered in small doses, normalizing organic functions. . For this fact, Jacques Ménétrier is considered the father of oligotherapy.

The body cannot produce trace elements on its own, but must be provided with food or supplements. Its deficit can cause diseases. They are involved in respiratory, digestive, neurovegetative, muscular and metabolic processes. If they are added again, balance is restored and health is restored, as happens with vitamins.

Among the essential trace elements are Chromium, Copper, Tin, Fluoride, Iron, Lithium, Magnesium, Manganese, Molybdenum, Gold, Silver, Nickel, Selenium, Silicon, Iodine, Vanadium and Zinc.
