Why You Should Consider Magnesium
Magnesium doesn’t have the broad name recognition of calcium or iron, yet this essential mineral is critical to over 300 core functions in the body. There’s growing concern that America’s increased reliance on processed foods has decreased vital magnesium intake. Here’s the skinny on magnesium—and how to get enough in your gluten-free diet.
Healthy magnesium levels are also linked with a lower risk of type-2 diabetes, stroke and even cancer. In one study, a daily increase of just 100 mg of magnesium slashed colorectal cancer risk by 12 percent. It’s thought that magnesium reduces inflammation and bolsters the immune system, thereby driving down cancer risk.
