Nickel is a mineral that has different functions within our body. The most important is undoubtedly that of promoting the correct functioning of metabolic processes. In particular, it is involved in the processes of assimilation of fats and sugars in our body. It has the property of keeping the skin young and toned (provided you are not allergic to this mineral since in this case it could develop dangerous skin reactions) and is therefore widely used in the preparation of various types of cosmetic products. It is widely available in our diet. It is contained in onions, asparagus, bananas, broccoli, cucumbers, potatoes, vegetable oils, melon, celery, pepper, spinach, milk, etc. Its deficiency can cause liver problems and general malaise.
