Thoughtful Thursday GOKI Readers, first I have to say, I am saddened by the exit of Jacob Lusk from the American Idol competition, he was one of my favorties to make it to the finals. Although, I have noticed over the weeks that the song selections made were not the best for Jacob's voice and/or style. With that said, I do believe that he'll have a long and fruitful career like so many other American Idol hopefuls who may or may not have reached the finals and still are extremely successful, such as Clay Aiken and Jennifer Hudson. Best of Luck Jacob!

UNDERSTAND TRACE MINERALS

Minerals that are needed in smaller amounts than the major minerals are referred to as trace minerals or trace elements. Even though our bodies only require a small amount of these minerals, they are still very important to proper health. Most trace minerals are needed in amounts of less than 20 mg per day. There are no RDAs, DRIs, or safe and adequate ranges set for these minerals because not enough is known about what the body requires for proper health and fuctioning. A healthy, varied, and balanced diet is the best way to ensure you sonsume safe and adequate amounts of these other trace minerals.

As Always, To Your Health!

P.S.  Take a look at this video about trace minerals.
