You should know what your body needs.

Minerals contained in birch sap are all required by a human on a daily basis. Nitrogen contributes to formation of amino acids. Sodium, potassium and chlorine keep permanent blood salts composition and osmotic pressure which in its turn is a considerable factor of preserving water in tissues and blood. Sodium ions increase capacity of proteins to keep water, and potassium and calcium ions decrease. Calcium salts in complex with phosphates and fluoride make up the mineral basis of bones and teeth. Potassium is also required for normal functioning of the nervous system and muscles contraction. A better assimilation of calcium depends on its ratio with phosphates and magnesium which is also contained in birch sap minerals. Exchange of phosphates and magnesium salts are tightly interrelated. Insufficient  magnesium salts in meal result in disturbed functioning of the nervous system and muscles contraction. Iron is indispensable for a human too. It is presented in considerable amount in blood cells which last only about three months.
