Minerals perform various vital functions, including keeping your bones, muscles, heart and brain working properly. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), most adult Americans aren’t getting enough of the nutrients their bodies need. That includes minerals like calcium, potassium and magnesium.
Ninety-nine percent of the calcium in your body is found in your bones and teeth. The remainder, a scant one percent, circulates in the soft body tissue and fluids. Calcium is needed for normal bone and teeth development, for blood clotting, for enzymatic action, and for the regulation of fluid passage through walls of tissue and cells.
Calcium in the blood is needed for the alternate contraction and relaxation of heart muscles. A deficiency may cause undesirable reactions in your nervous system.
Potassium helps normalize your heartbeat, nourishes your muscles, and it is especially needed by your kidneys to help dispose of wastes.
About 70 percent of the magnesium in the body is in the bones. The rest is in the soft tissue and blood. Magnesium is a must for maintaining or even increasing bone mass. You need magnesium in the urine which helps protect against kidney stones.

They are chelating agents that aid the absorption of minerals from the digestive tract.
