Minerals (macro-elements and trace-elements) play a decisive role in the proper functioning of the body. A daily intake is therefore essential insofar as the human body is unable to synthesize them itself.
As a result, a deficit in trace elements or minerals is responsible for a decline in form, states of fatigue, vulnerability to stress, a decrease in concentration and intellectual faculties, etc. It is therefore important to control the levels of minerals present in the body in order to be able to anticipate the risks involved.
Studies conducted by the WHO or the FAO have highlighted the growing dangers of massive exposure to toxic agents. Transported by air, groundwater and soil pollution, food, water, tobacco, etc. the risks of contamination are increasingly important, even inevitable, and involve health risks.
Heavy metals cause oxidative stress.
Oxidative stress is a type of attack on cell constituents by free radicals.
Oxidative stress is responsible for ageing and many pathologies.
Free radicals are molecules produced in small quantities by the body. These free radicals are very reactive substances, capable of damaging the constituents of cells (enzymatic proteins, lipid membranes, DNA). They are produced in particular during exposure to the sun (UV), tobacco, pollution, pesticides, etc.
To fight against free radicals, a diet rich in antioxidants, found in particular in fruits and vegetables, is essential.
