10 foods rich in minerals

Jul 18, 2020Barbara Arlati

Minerals are essential for the proper functioning of the human body. Particularly for heart health, brain health and also for enzyme production and hormonal balance.

In general, minerals are divided into two categories:

Macro minerals, are needed in greater quantities by our body and include calcium, potassium, chloride, sodium, phosphorus and magnesium.

The other minerals are still important but we need to take them in smaller quantities.

Minerals are found in many foods and if you eat a variety of foods trying to include these foods, you don't need other supplements.

Here are 16 really mineral-rich foods:

      • Nuts and seeds are generally very rich in minerals such as magnesium, zinc, manganese, copper, selenium and phosphorus. Brazil nuts (Brazil nuts) contain very high quantities of selenium (just one covers over 100% of the daily requirement) and pumpkin seeds are particularly rich in magnesium.
      • Shellfish are a concentrate of minerals, oysters in particular are an excellent source of zinc
      • Cruciferous vegetables (cauliflower, broccoli, etc) already famous for the many benefits they bring to health are also rich in sulphur, an essential mineral for proper cellular functioning and for the synthesis of glutadione, a powerful antioxidant produced by our body.
      • Offal is not a cut of meat that everyone appreciates, yet it is among the foods richest in minerals, especially liver.
      • Eggs are a very precious food and contain phosphorus, selenium, zinc and iron and vitamins.
      • Beans are rich in minerals such as calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, manganese and iron but in order for these minerals to be available, care must be taken to soak and cook them
      • Cocoa is particularly rich in copper and magnesium
      • In addition to being a source of "healthy" fats, avocado is also rich in magnesium, potassium, manganese and copper
      • Berries are an excellent source of potassium, magnesium and manganese
