                                 Dietary Minerals 

Dietary Minerals are the group of minerals which is essential for our body to sustain normal functions and physical health.


Cobalt is one of many essential mineral needed by our body in very small amounts to enhance productions of red blood cell and the formation of myelin nerve coverings It also is vital as a necessary cofactor for making the thyroid hormone thyroxine and stored in the red blood cells, the plasma, liver, kidney, spleen, pancreas, etc.

                           Cobalt-containing supplements 

Cobalt-containing supplements are readily available in the U.S. and have been marketed to consumers as energy enhancers. However, little information is available regardingcobalt (Co) body burden and steady-state blood concentrations following the intake of Codietary supplements. According to the study by the ChemRisk, LLC, 4840 Pearl East Circle, Boulder, CO 80301, United States, Pre-supplementation blood Co concentrations were less than the reporting limit of 0.5μg/L, consistent with background concentrations reported to range between 0.1 and 0.4μg/L. The mean whole blood Co concentration in the volunteers after 15 or 16days of dosing was 3.6μg Co/L and ranged from 1.8 to 5.1μg Co/L. The mean observed concentration in the study group was approximately 9-36 times greater than background concentrations. Further studies of Co whole blood concentrations following supplementation over longer time periods with additional monitoring of physiological parameters may provide useful information for evaluating the health of persons who take various doses of Co(9).
