Transcript

  • 1. IMPORTANCE OF ROCKS AND MINERALS
  • 2. Natural process that occurs on the surface of Earth have turned rocks into the soil we use to produce food for people and animals. Rocks are very important to mankind. We use the minerals in rocks for all sorts of things from fuel, tools and jewelry. Rocks are used to build things as well.
  • 3. EXAMPLES:
  • 4. All nutrients such as vitamins, proteins, enzymes, amino acids, carbohydrates, fats, sugars, oils, etc. require minerals for proper cellular function. All bodily processes depend upon the action and presence of minerals.
  • 5. Minerals are more important to nutrition than vitamins. Vitamins are required for every bodily biochemical process. However, vitamins cannot function unless minerals are present.
  • 6. Minerals are needed for healing. Tissue rebuilding occurs more readily when the body has access to the necessary minerals. Minerals are vital to health. They are the building blocks that make upnmuscles, tissues, and bones.
  • 7. Many mineral supplements are not easily assimilated by the body. It's important that mineral supplements be water soluble, not in rock form, and that the elements be in an oxygenated state, bringing more oxygen to the blood cells and thereby releasing toxins from the body.
