New in Wellness

January 2022 – Our bodies use minerals for many functions, including bone, heart, and brain health. Minerals are also key to hydration as well as enzyme and hormone production. While theoretically we get most of the minerals we need by eating a wide variety of foods, in some cases a healthcare provider may suggest a mineral supplement.


Driver’s supplement buyer, Danya Mosgofian, evaluates products and companies before bringing them in, doing the homework for our customers. “I prefer food-based products because they absorb better. Non-GMO, preferably organic,” said Danya. Over the years she has removed brands that don’t meet the ethos of Driver’s Market, preferring smaller and family owned companies, with a few larger brands mixed in.


Danya is big on the importance of staying hydrated, and recently introduced a new line of supplements called Trace Minerals. Trace is a Utah-based company dedicated to ionic minerals, which have negative or positive charges, and help improve water distribution throughout the body.


Danya believes minerals are essential for health which is why she is so enthusiastic about them! To dive deep into mineral hydration and ‘bone up’ on your knowledge, check out this informative PDF that Danya compiled.


Macrominerals are larger-sized minerals, and the building blocks of life: magnesium, calcium, potassium, phosphorus. Macrominerals support bone health, vitality, energy, heart and mood.

Microminerals, or trace minerals, are smaller in scale, but play a large role in body functions. Microminerals support bone health, energy levels, our nervous system, metabolism, and more. Microminerals include iron, zinc, copper, iodine, and fluoride.

Electrolytes are essential for hydration because they help the body maintain potassium and sodium balance. Trace Mineral supplements use ionic minerals, which support water distribution in the body. Poor hydration can lead to heart palpitations, dizziness, and fatigue. Hydration supplements are: sodium, potassium, and magnesium.

Fiber helps to regulate blood sugar levels, and keep hunger in check. Fiber also helps remove excess toxins and hormones by binding to food and moving it through the digestive system. Foods like lentils and nuts contain soluble fibers, which dissolve in water. Insoluble fibers do not dissolve in water, and help move food through the digestive system more quickly.
