So What is it Exactly that you DO??

Okay so whenever a healthy product is advertised the announcer is quick to say...."Full of Vitamin C, Zinc, Iron, Vitamin E, yada yada yada."

All of this sounds good but I hardly ever know the purpose of this stuff.

Well today let's take a closer look at Magnesium. Magnesium is a bone mineralizer and a building protein. This mineral aids in the transmission of nerve impulses and it helps to maintain your teeth.

You can find magnesium in nuts, legumes, whole grains, dark green vegetables, seafood, chocoalate, cocoa.

What a great excuse to go to my favorite places:Red Lobster for seafood, the farmers market for nuts and veggies, and the supermarket for some chocolate.

The recommended daily allowance (RDA) for men is 420 mg and for women it is 320 mg.

And now you know ;)
