Mighty Manganese and Sexy Selenium: The Secret Bone-Building Minerals

Micro-minerals with a macro punch. Earlier this week I wrote about bone-building—emphasizing the right kind of calcium, along with vitamin K and vitamin D. Now, I’m going to focus on two bone-building minerals I didn’t write about then, which I feel are important enough to merit a blog of their very own: manganese and selenium.

A lack of zinc in your diet may be making you aggressive. Several years ago I ran across a fascinating article in Psychology Today which focused on the origin of violent behavior. Was it nature or nutrition? Could the underlying cause be in one’s upbringing or in their genes? Or just maybe it could be some type of nutritional imbalance. Taking the nutritional stance was William Walsh, Ph.D. and his Read More
