Magnesium - the Silent U.S. Epidemic
- Magnesium is one of the most essential minerals needed by the body, but the body does not produce magnesium therefore it must come from external sources such as supplementation and food. Most people think of magnesium and bone health which is just one fraction of why magnesium is so important! This mineral actually helps to activate over 300 enzymes, the catalyst for every function in the body. Studies Show that the average American diet provides less than 50% of the RDA, and that over 30% of the population is deficient.
