  • iron--for protein hemoglobin, which carries oxygen in the blood and to muscles. 18 mg to age 50, 8 mg after that age
  • zinc--for white blood count and the immune system, hormone regulation and calcium absorption. 8 mg for all ages
  • magnesium--for energy metabolism, proteins, bone health and muscle and nerve function. 310 mg to age 30, 320 mg thereafter
