A Comprehensive Review of Nutritional Benefits of Minerals in Meat and Meat Products
  • Medicine
    Science Letters
  • 2021
TLDR
The present study discusses the mineral composition of different muscle foods, factors affecting the mineral contents in different muscle Foods and the beneficial and important roles that minerals play in human health.
Interactions between iron and manganese in neurotoxicity
TLDR
The essential and naturally occurring transition metal manganese (Mn) is present in the soil, water, air, and various foods and there is a strong relationship between Fe and Mn metabolism.
Protective Role of the Essential Trace Elements in the Obviation of Cadmium Toxicity: Glimpses of Mechanisms.
TLDR
The application of these trace elements appears beneficial for both the prevention and remediation of long-term Cd toxicity operative via multiple mechanisms with no or minimal adverse effects as compared to the conventional chelation therapy.
Health Benefits of Micronutrients (Vitamins and Minerals) and their Associated Deficiency Diseases: A Systematic Review
The research focused on the benefits of micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) and their associated deficiency diseases and health complications. Micronutrients are essential elements required by
Trace Elements in Home-Processed Food Obtained from Unconventional Animals
TLDR
Alternative food sources can offer an important contribution to the human nutritional requirements of essential trace elements, in particular of Fe, and the high concentrations of Pb and Cd present in some samples should be considered as potentially dangerous for the consumers.
Toxic Metal Species and ‘Endogenous’ Metalloproteins at the Blood–Organ Interface: Analytical and Bioinorganic Aspects
TLDR
The quantification of metalloentities in blood plasma and/or RBC cytosol is identified as a feasible research avenue to better understand the adverse health effects that are associated with chronic exposure of various human populations to inorganic pollutants.

The essential trace elements.
TLDR
Marginal or severe trace element imbalances can be considered risk factors for several diseases of public health importance, but proof of cause and effect relationships will depend on a more complete understanding of basic mechanisms of action and on better analytical procedures and functional tests to determine marginal trace element status in man.
The elements of life and medicines

  • Biology
    Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society A: Mathematical, Physical and Engineering Sciences
  • 2015
TLDR
An element-by-element journey through the periodic table is made and it is attempted to assess whether elements are essential or not, and if they are, whether there is a relevant code for them in the human genome.
New Evidence against Chromium as an Essential Trace Element.
Nearly 60 y ago, chromium, as the trivalent ion, was proposed to be an essential element, but the results of new studies indicate that chromium currently can only be considered pharmacologically
Chromium is not an essential trace element for mammals: effects of a “low-chromium” diet
TLDR
The studies reveal that a diet with as little chromium as reasonably possible had no effect on body composition, glucose metabolism, or insulin sensitivity compared with a chromium-“sufficient” diet, indicating that chromium can no longer be considered an essential element.
Nutritional requirements for boron, silicon, vanadium, nickel, and arsenic: current knowledge and speculation
  • F. Nielsen
  • Chemistry
    FASEB journal : official publication of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology
  • 1991
Definition of specific biochemical functions in higher animals (including humans) for the ultra‐trace elements boron, silicon, vanadium, nickel, and arsenic still has not been achieved although all
[The role of essential metal ions in the human organism and their oral supplementation to the human body in deficiency states].
TLDR
Oral administration of mixed metal complexes of oligo/polygalacturonic acids with medium molecular weight prepared from natural pectin of plant origin are efficient for oral supplementation, and metal ion homeostasis and optimal interactions with vitamins and hormones can be ensured.

The Metals in the Biological Periodic System of the Elements: Concepts and Conjectures
  • W. Maret
  • Biology
    International journal of molecular sciences
  • 2016
TLDR
A basis for a biological periodic system of the elements is discussed and that biochemistry should include the elements that are traditionally part of inorganic chemistry and not only those that are in the purview of organic chemistry.
Zinc and human health: an update
TLDR
The zinc as a multipurpose trace element, its biological role in homeostasis, proliferation and apoptosis and its role in immunity and in chronic diseases, such as cancer, diabetes, depression, Wilson’s disease, Alzheimer's disease, and other age-related diseases are reviewed.
Cobalt: its role in health and disease.
TLDR
This chapter will focus on the physiological roles of Cbl and the importance of cobalt in human health and the literature on the Cbl transporting system, which is crucial for Cbl function.
