Potassium is found in body fluids and is essential for the proper functioning of cells, including nerves.  It’s important in preventing high blood pressure.

Manganese, like many other minerals, is an important part of enzymes (particularly those involved in amino acid, cholesterol and carbohydrate metabolism) and it is also involved in the formation of bone.

The body needs copper to be able to use iron properly.
