I’m not a professional/nutritionist or a doctor; this is just the result of research that I’ve done for myself that I am sharing. Please research for yourself and don’t forget to consult/discuss with your healthcare provider!
This month I am sharing about several minerals needed to be replaced when one goes dairy-free. Copper, Iron, Magnesium, Manganese & Phosphorus.
Copper ~ used in iron metabolism, building strong tissue and maintaining blood volume. It also has a role in antioxidant protection, cholesterol balance, energy support & bone/tissue integrity. There is additional information & food chart here.
Iron ~ this is a component of blood and many enzymes. It is also involved in blood metabolism, energy production & oxygen transport. There is additional information & food chart here.
Magnesium ~ this mineral supports bone metabolism & cellular health, including nerve function & blood sugar control. Here is a list of foods and additional information on magnesium.
Manganese ~ there is a very small amount of this in milk ~ this mineral also supports bone formation & enzymes that are involved in amino acids, cholesterol & carb metabolism. It also supports skin integrity and blood sugar control. There is additional information & food chart here.
Phosphorus ~ this helps maintain body pH and storage & transfer of energy & nucleotide synthesis. It also plays a part in bone support. Here is additional info & a food list for phosphorus.
I hope these help your dairy-free journey of health!
