Minerals are specific kinds of nutrients that your body needs in order to function properly. A mineral deficiency occurs when your body doesn’t obtain or absorb the required amount of a mineral. An essential mineral is any mineral required by the body for health that cannot be produced by the body and so has to be taken by your diet. A deficiency of either of these minerals may lead to a variety of health problems, such as weak bones, fatigue, or a decreased immune system.
