If a mineral isn’t studied in the US, does that mean it isn’t important? As we learned in a previous episode, sometimes American doctors and researchers resist giving credence to studies conducted abroad. This certainly appears to be the case with the mineral magnesium. Magnesium is integral to as many as 800 enzyme reactions in the body yet very few modern people get enough of it. Dr. Carolyn Dean, author of The Magnesium Miracle, joins us to discuss how she first discovered the power of this miracle nutrient and the broad range of health complaints supplementation can address.
After you listen to this episode, be sure to catch the second half of the interview when Dr. Dean explains the downsides of supplementation and why she created a unique magnesium supplement that removes the issues typically experienced at therapeutic doses.
