In our previous post, “Magnesium: The Wonder Mineral,” we praised magnesium as a key ingredient for keeping us physically and emotionally balanced. To recap, magnesium is a “co-enzyme” for over 300 fundamental biochemical reactions in our bodies – meaning these critical biological processes could not occur without the help of magnesium.
We all know that vitamins and minerals contribute importantly to our overall health. However, according to Mark Hyman, M.D. who is the author of The UltraMind Solution and several other NY Times best sellers, more than 92% of American’s are deficient in one or more vitamins (based on 2012 NHANES data). Obviously we’re not getting what we need from our food. So should we take a multivitamin, or does that just contribute to expensive pee?
