If you’re a fan of Vemma, you’ve probably noticed how proud we are of the minerals found in our products. However, you might not know why we’re so excited about them. So why all the fuss about minerals? In short, minerals are essential building blocks in your body. Think of it like your cell phone: you can’t check your email or crush digital candies without the coding in the operating system. Under the umbrella of minerals at large falls two main categories: macrominerals and trace minerals. Macrominerals are the ones you need large quantities of, such as calcium which is particularly important for women. Trace minerals are not needed in as high of quantities as macrominerals, but they’re still important. One example of a trace mineral is iron, found primarily in red blood cells which are only important if you enjoy the way oxygen is dispersed throughout your body. Minerals help support the health of your organs, bones, and immune system—no wonder we’re so excited about them!*
Now that we understand the importance of minerals in the body, we need to make sure we’re getting everything we need—but how? Are you going to have to spend all your time reading food labels and figuring out exactly how many milligrams you’re getting per day? No, not exactly. It is a good idea to read food labels so that you know what you’re eating, but there are easier ways than sitting around with a calculator all day. In addition to eating a balanced diet, consider adding a protein shake like Vemma Shake. Like all Vemma products, the shake features a plant-sourced blend of over 65 major, trace, and ultra-trace ionic minerals in addition to a number of other healthy components, such as essential vitamins, protein, and fiber. This nutrient dense protein shake can serve as a meal replacement so you can make sure that breakfast or lunch is covered in the mineral department. If you thought eating three healthy meals a day was easy, now you only have to worry about two! Another great way to ensure you get all your minerals is through Vemma. Only 2 oz each day ensures you get what you need and before you know it, you’re out the door and on your way. It’s a new year and a new you, so make sure you’re giving your body everything it needs to be healthy and succeed.*
