Wellness in 2023

January 2023 – 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 believes minerals are essential for health. She stocks supplement suppliers like Trace Mineral, based in Utah, that use ionic minerals, which have negative or positive charges, and help improve water distribution throughout the body.

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.
