MICRO-NUTRIENTS

This chart highlights the main micronutrients needed by the body. Each group of minerals are required in different amounts, this is why they are categorised as macro and micro (large amounts and small amounts).  Macronutrients are required in larger amounts in the diet and micronutrients in smaller amounts.
