A number of minerals are essential for important cellular functions. Some foods containing them also have been found to contain chemicals that enhance the ability to absorb and utilize these minerals. These chemicals are especially important to cellular function.

Kiwifruit, for example, contains high amounts of minerals and vitamins, such as potassium, iron, phosphorus, magnesium, calcium, and folate (folic acid).
