Did You Know?
The glandular and nervous systems work together to regulate all of the body’s processes, including growth, metabolism, digestion, elimination, menstruation and sleep. The glandular (endocrine) system communicates using chemical messengers called hormones that stimulate reactions that may last from a few hours to several days. The endocrine system functions best when it has ample stores of minerals, particularly trace minerals.For example, the thyroid gland maintains proper metabolic rates and levels of body fluids when it has ample iodine. Similarly, the pancreas, which controls blood sugar levels, needs chromium. Eating foods rich in trace minerals helps support the body’s glandular functions, but unfortunately, many foods that are a mainstay of the modern diet are low in trace minerals.
