Dietary minerals are the chemical compounds required by living organisms, including humans, for normal metabolic function. These are in the form of metals with organic compounds. There are more than eleven chemical elements required to support human biochemical processes by serving structural and functional roles. The function of minerals in our body range from building bones, making hormones to regulating heartbeat.
