What is an essential trace mineral?
An "essential trace mineral" - also referred to as an essential trace element, is one of a group of minerals that are not only required but "vital" by men and women, boys and girls, for optimum health. Missing just one of the essential trace minerals can lead to a variety of health or medical problems.
"essential trace minerals" daily requirements range from 50 micrograms
to 18 milligrams per day, depending on the mineral.

Four trace minerals were proved to be essential for two or more animal species during the past decade alone. Marginal or severe trace mineral/element imbalances can be considered risk factors for several diseases of public health importance, but proof of cause and effect relationships will depend on a more complete understanding of basic mechanisms of action and on better analytical procedures and functional tests to determine marginal trace element status in man.
