6 Essential Minerals for Women’s Health – To Your Health Magazine April 2011

Minerals are essential micronutrients that are required in small amounts for the body to function properly. Untreated mineral deficiencies can cause serious health problems including endocrine (hormone) imbalances, osteoporosis and anemia. Different minerals play a primary role at different stages of life. For example, menstruating women often need extra iron until they hit menopause and then they can cross iron off their list, as it contributes to oxidative damage in the body. Another example is that women typically develop bone density during the first 35 years of life, creating a specific mineral reserve that forms the foundation for bone health during the postmenopausal years, when bone density tends to decline. The main sources of minerals are certain types of whole foods, but following a diet that contains all the necessary nutrients can be a challenge for any woman.

While potassium iodine is useful in the prevention of thyroid cancer from radioactive iodine exposure, high doses are only necessary if there is an imminent threat of acute exposure. It does not protect against other radioactive isotopes that are also present in nuclear fallout.
