Mineral absorption is the critical process where essential minerals, such as iron, calcium, and magnesium, are taken up from the diet and utilized throughout the body. Various factors such as gut health, medications, and diet can interfere with mineral absorption – which can lead to deficiencies and cause a wide range of health issues. It’s important to detect potential mineral deficiencies in order to provide the body with necessary nutritional interventions.
