As we can see, the optimum level of micro elements is essential for our wellbeing. Gladly, it can be maintained by eating healthy. Unfortunately, we cannot always monitor our diet and adjust it to our body’s needs. In addition, the quality of food does not always allow getting all the necessary nutrients in sufficient quantities.
