Minerals are found in all food nutrients and supplements. Together with the vitamins, they are required in much smaller amounts to so they are called “micronutrients”. Micro is a Greek origin word meaning “small”. Macronutrients (carbohydrate, protein and fats) are needed in larger amounts. Macro is a Greek word for “big”. The perfect source of nutrition and diet (such as a diet that contains healthy, varied foods, including fruits, vegetables, cereals, meat, fish) will have all macronutrients and micronutrients at the right levels.
