When thinking about the vitamins and minerals your body needs to function properly, it’s important to remember that there can be a pretty big discrepancy between the amount you eat, and the amount your body actually absorbs and uses. For example: even if you’re eating a relatively magnesium rich diet, studies suggest that only 20 – 50% of that magnesium will get absorbed as food works its way through your digestive system.

This is why we recommend a magnesium supplement for people who have risk factors for heart disease (particularly those already on medication for it) – a high quality supplement will take the guess work out of ensuring you’re getting enough to keep that aspect of your heart’s health under control.

If you’re concerned about your heart health, and/or are still feeling under the weather despite your medication – come in for a chat and we’ll figure out what might be going on.
