Milk Minerals

Cow’s milk is rich in minerals such as calcium, sodium, potassium, iron, magnesium and phosphorus. These minerals are essential for the proper functioning of the body because they are involved in many vital processes such as muscle and cardiac contraction, blood coagulation, hormone release, nerve impulse transmission, etc. Cow’s milk has other minerals in very small quantities called trace elements. These are iodine, fluorine, chlorine, zinc, cobalt and selenium. In total, the mineral elements represent about 4% of the body weight. A balanced diet provides daily intake of minerals and trace elements.
