Minerals, Nutrition and Weight Loss

Good diet nutrition is essential for optimum health – including efficient metabolism and stable blood sugar levels, both of which affect weight control and how fast we lose weight. For example, a number of chemical reactions are required to convert food into energy or fat. These are controlled by enzymes, which are influenced by vitamins, minerals and other micronutrients. Any vitamin or mineral deficiency may harm our ability to convert glucose into energy (instead of fat) resulting in slower weight loss or more difficult weight control.

Which Minerals Affect Weight Loss

All minerals are important, and most work together. The most important vitamins for weight control and metabolism include: Chromium, Manganese and Zinc.
