On this week's show we host Joy Stephenson-Laws, author of Minerals: The Forgotten Nutrient. Joy also works at Proactive Health Labs and is here to help us understand the important role minerals play in our nutrition and general health. A lot of focus is often given to vitamins and macronutrients, but as you will see from our chat, the micronutrients of minerals, both in whole foods and as supplements, are vital to living a happy and vibrant life. In our discussion, we cover some basics around the role of minerals in the body and go on to identifying and testing for deficiencies and excesses. We talk symptoms, basic rules, absorption, mineral balancing, and much more. So be sure to listen!
