I had no idea just how important magnesium is, and the wide variety of symptoms that a deficiency can cause. My sister in law has claimed for years (and I scoffed at it), that taking magnesium and cutting back on sodas and coffee would help to lessen menstrual cramping. Sounds like there is something to it!


Csutherland February 22, 2015 at 8:21 pm

I had no idea either. Its great to see that it helps with so many things. Irritability, PMS.


ssteele June 28, 2017 at 8:55 pm

Thats a great idea! I’m going to try it for muscle cramps and menstrual cramps.

cfields2 October 11, 2017 at 9:49 pm

Agreed! I’m definitely going to try it for cramps.

mpurifoy February 1, 2018 at 4:39 pm

I had no idea this was such a thing. I’m gonna try it very soon

CLovell February 24, 2015 at 3:40 pm

I am going to try that also for menstrual cramps!


lefj1979 February 24, 2016 at 10:33 pm

it also helps out with having muscle spasms

mhardage3 February 22, 2017 at 7:28 pm

i had no idea that magnesium helped with muscle spasms like potassium.

mbarrett2289 March 7, 2017 at 2:16 pm

I cannot wait to try Magnesium the next time I get cramps! I’m also excited to look at what my multivitamin provides. I don’t take it regularly but I’m about to start after hearing this!

HeyYall March 8, 2017 at 3:26 pm

That is a good idea I need to try!

lwebb August 22, 2015 at 6:18 pm

I did not know either and I think it is so cool to learn about how many different things it helps.


EWalters October 9, 2015 at 11:26 am

I am a critical care nurse, and it’s true that most of my patients have low magnesium. In fact, we actually have a protocol for replacing magnesium and other electrolytes. It’s rare for me to work a shift without hanging a bag of magnesium. And in emergency situations like cardiac arrest, we give a bolus dose of magnesium.
Many of our patients suffer from chronic wounds. These are usually treated with some type of zinc, like a zinc oxide cream, to help them heal.


HunterMcWhorter February 24, 2016 at 10:15 pm

I had no idea that is what they do when chronic wounds have been inflicted. useful information

sparrish February 28, 2016 at 9:19 pm

Thank you for your input! I never realized it’s great importance! One thing that I do know is that if you take too much magnesium it will cause diarreah. I discovered this for myself, unfortunately. I was using it for leg cramps.

Molly Harvey September 7, 2016 at 3:10 pm

I am a step down nurse on a cardiac renal floor, and we too have an Electrolyte Protocol where I am also giving potassium or magnesium. It is amazing how these supplements can make a huge difference in the health of a patient. We too also use Zinc for wound healing with good results.

afriedl October 5, 2016 at 5:34 pm

This is extremely informative as I am in nursing school now!

jrousu October 11, 2017 at 2:36 pm

Thanks for your input, I am learning all about these in nursing school. Just learned how Mag sulfate is used in L/D during this rotation ( preterm labor,preeclampsia/eclampsia). I used Zinc on med surg a lot with the wound nurse.

Chelsea Vogel Hunter January 25, 2016 at 3:27 pm

what useful information


Averyel85 October 30, 2016 at 11:13 pm

I’m also in nursing school and learned how much the electrolytes and minerals play such a big role in ones health.

pharvey February 5, 2016 at 7:55 pm

I also had no idea how important magnesium is in our diets and the things it does for our bodies.


Darius2 March 2, 2016 at 12:02 am

The need for it in our bodies seems to be more than I’ve ever know.

Cbrown1900 March 1, 2016 at 10:23 pm

Wow, that’s interesting. I should try that.


DHarrington July 1, 2016 at 8:18 pm

Yes I had no idea of the benefits of magnesium, and the fact that so many people are not getting enough, its crazy.


srussell September 12, 2016 at 4:57 pm

I was surprised by the number of people that are not getting enough magnesium too+

Ashleigh W. July 7, 2016 at 7:58 pm

I am going to try this, amazing video!


jdurfee October 8, 2016 at 12:51 am

I could definitely benefit by trying it out as well.

Molly Harvey September 7, 2016 at 3:08 pm

I have fibromyalgia, and some days it is so hard to get up and moving, although once I do, I am ok. I was excited to hear that magnesium can actually help with fibro by relaxing the muscles. I am definitely going to try it.


khoward October 11, 2017 at 10:55 pm

I take the Magnesium for Fibromyalgia. It does help relax the muscles and helps with cramps at night for me.

Angelena essary September 30, 2016 at 11:36 pm

I didn’t know either. I probably need to start taking magnesium to help with my headaches.


autumnd October 15, 2017 at 2:23 pm

I may try this for my headaches. I have headaches at least once or twice a week and hate taking medication for them.

dhutchens October 3, 2016 at 3:46 pm

I totally agree! I have been trying to pinpoint the cause to my symptoms and this just might be it!


ckilpatrick October 10, 2016 at 4:05 pm

I have so many of these symptoms as well. Maybe that’s why I have so many headaches! I hope the symptoms go away upon increasing my intake!


csmart January 22, 2017 at 7:36 pm

I am very prone to migraines and by the sound of this video I need to add more magnesium to my intake.


A.Wood June 30, 2017 at 3:26 pm

not drinking soda has really helped menstrual symptoms however, I could never give up coffee.


Natalie Fusilier October 11, 2017 at 9:37 pm

This is very interesting, I was not aware of the effects of a Magnesium deficiency either.


KYoung January 27, 2018 at 10:22 pm

I didn’t either. Such an informative video. My mom as osteoporosis and I have yet to hear a doctor tell her to increase her magnesium intake. She has a doc appointment I am going to ask about it.


ycanasramos February 19, 2018 at 9:32 pm

For real? I didn’t know that avoiding coffee and sodas would help to lessen menstrual cramping. Since I had my first period I have been dealing with menstrual cramping. Back in time, my doctor told me it was iron deficiency, I just realize that magnesium helps to lessen menstrual cramping.


mdanner4505 June 18, 2014 at 9:37 pm

Zinc heal wounds, average adult need 8mg, very informant.


kbennett February 22, 2015 at 11:33 pm

Zinc is good during the winter to help prevent or lessen the severity of colds.


rwells March 5, 2015 at 3:42 am

This is so new to me. I don’t think I have ever taken Zinc.

Ashleigh W. July 7, 2016 at 7:59 pm

I take zinc as soon as I feel sick! It is amazing what minerals can do!

vrobinson July 7, 2016 at 12:01 am

This is so cray to me I have never heard anything of this.


Micah Thomas October 5, 2016 at 12:36 am

Never knew of this, learning something new everyday! i get sick quite a bit, i may need to look into consuming more zinc.


nwade October 6, 2017 at 9:23 pm

That was such a helpful hint.


mdanner4505 June 18, 2014 at 9:34 pm

Magnesium barely qualifies as a major mineral. didn’t know it help relax the muscles.


aditzu March 1, 2015 at 12:27 pm

And it really relax it in a amazing way.


Epeppers October 7, 2016 at 10:35 pm

That was a fact that I did not know . But now that I do I will definitely begin to use more magnesium.


Cicenhower June 11, 2017 at 4:02 pm

I never knew magnesium would help relax the muscles. Next time I have tight muscles I’m going to try taking a magnesium supplement.


mdanner4505 June 18, 2014 at 9:28 pm

calcium not made in the body, most adult need a 1000 calcium a day. 99% of the body’s calcium is stored in the bone and teeth.


fcarter-doreau June 17, 2014 at 7:56 pm

I LOVE the video on magnesium!! I have actually been researching magnesium a lot lately because recently my doctor, I have referenced him before, he tries natural approaches first and foremost and he told me (I am awaiting the lab results to be certain) that he believes I am magnesium deficient like a lot of Americans are! This is a hugely effective and important mineral for so many symptoms we experience… my big problem is Anxiety! But many of the things listed I could relate too and what do they link too… Magnesium deficiency! I totally agree that instead of everyone running to prescription drugs, Ex. antidepressants and so forth they should try this very accessible and effective method first! I think more doctors should educate and suggest this before the prescription route… studies that have been done on this have very positive results on the advantages. I can’t express enough through what I’ve researched of how convinced I am that lots of people have this deficiency and don’t know it.


Ssmith5449 November 29, 2015 at 5:15 pm

I agree that instead of running to the doctor with depression, alternative therapies could benefit you more. I have struggled with a lot of the symptoms of this deficiency and instead of being sick on many different levels I may just have a magnesium deficiency!


Ashleigh W. July 7, 2016 at 8:00 pm

I wish they would educate us more in school about the need for minerals, and all the benefits. It is better to take a natural approach for healing.

Ashley July 24, 2016 at 10:56 pm

I wasn’t aware of this! I’m really glad I read your comment

Aflores1965 October 6, 2016 at 12:35 am

You should still go see a doctor to be for sure

tlampinen June 23, 2016 at 11:31 pm

i definetely agree that natural approaches versus prescription medication should be tried, i think taking a medication for things such as anxiety and depression just leads to other problems eventually


Micah Thomas October 5, 2016 at 1:01 am

I totally agree. I’ve delt with addictions to prescriptions pills in my family all of my life so a natural alternative is definitely better for any medication in my opinion.

atoney January 27, 2017 at 2:07 pm

I take Magnesium, it makes a difference. I have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and this has been dr recommended and it works.


kferguson October 3, 2017 at 10:49 am

That’s so interesting, and I agree totally. It is amazing that a lot of the troubles that we take medicine for could be fixed more naturally by simply changing our diets to get more of the nutrients, minerals, and vitamins that we need! I too struggle with anxiety. I would love to hear my doctor’s thoughts on its link to something like a magnesium deficiency.


jwilson15 October 11, 2017 at 11:58 pm

It is true that most people jump to conclusions and start taking the first medicine they think will improve their symptoms of such things as anxiety and depression. I also suffer from anxiety so this video helped me to look at my options differently and not jump to conclusions on the cause.


pbridges9020 June 17, 2014 at 7:37 am

Great! I have many Bone Problems now I know exactly how much supplement to take. I know I don’t eat enough foods rich in Calcium expect Milk.


sparks June 4, 2014 at 12:22 pm

I knew that calcium was really important for our bodies and I even knew that zinc was important. However, I didn’t know how important magnesium was for our bodies and for our health. I really learned alot from the magnesium video.


Peyton Blackerby July 6, 2016 at 10:54 pm

I didn’t either. I was very surprised to hear how important magnesium was to our bodies. I learned so much from the magnesium video, I even made my husband watch it.


Sdecker May 30, 2014 at 4:01 pm

In A & P, Calcium is extremely important for the bones of the body. Yet, I had no idea zinc was so important. It was good to learn that zinc heals wounds, and helps the immune system. I eat a lot of beef and beans though which were said to be ways of getting this element into our body. I had no idea about the magnesium either, it is obviously needed though. I will take in more though because it helps with stress!


sdreyer February 24, 2015 at 5:27 pm

I think we all need magnesium I never knew it helped with stress and I didn’t know zinc helped heal wounds either


eramsey4317 March 8, 2017 at 12:03 pm

I didn’t know zinc was so important either! As a wound care nurse, I knew zinc was good for wound healing, but I didn’t realize it was so beneficial to the immune system as well!


MCogburn3 March 9, 2014 at 9:03 pm

I knew calcium was important, but 1000mg Wow~!! O.o


Jordan Lewis March 6, 2014 at 4:08 pm

After watching this, I learned that many of my problems come from not enough Magnessium!


Mcrabb1 April 30, 2015 at 10:29 pm

Exactly. I also learned that my problems are there because of low level of calcium and zinc. It is really best video for me.


Bsossamon June 30, 2016 at 3:05 pm

I didn’t realize headaches could be from not enough Magnesium. I will find a supplement to see if it helps with my headaches.

knichole March 1, 2016 at 8:13 pm

I can agree, I thought that some problems were lack of another mineral, but they are actually from not enough magnesium. It is very interesting to find out new things about what can be done to help the body.


Aflores1965 October 6, 2016 at 12:36 am

Same here but i still want to be double sure so Im probably gonna go see a doctor sometime soon lol


Aowens March 6, 2014 at 12:08 am

Honestly, before watching this video I never really thought calcium was so important. I know I don’t get enough calcium in my diet and that needs to change. Growing up my mom was always telling me to take a multivitamin now I wish I would have listened to her.


aekwelle January 18, 2016 at 6:02 pm

So true I even started buying my kids multivitamins


awagner March 5, 2014 at 11:50 pm

I just think it’s amazing how our bodies can break down this stuff and use it. I mean, when I think of zinc or magnesium, I think of solid metals. So even just the fact that our bodies need this stuff is still crazy.


tlampinen June 23, 2016 at 11:34 pm

i thought the same thing, glad i found out how vital these things are for me


Natasha Toudouze March 5, 2014 at 9:20 pm

I also finally understand why orange juice is so important too.


Natasha Toudouze March 5, 2014 at 9:19 pm

I never realized just how important some of these were and that its so important to get them.


cosborne March 5, 2014 at 7:40 pm

I never really thought taking vitamins were important because i figured your body could function without them, but to see what becomes of your body when it is defiecient of certain vitamin


RHughes December 4, 2015 at 11:14 pm

It makes you really wonder how much better our body could be when we are older if we take vitamins our entire life.


cosborne March 5, 2014 at 7:39 pm

I heard that orange juice helped when ever you were sick or started to feel sick but i never understood why, this video helped alot with that question


Natasha Toudouze March 5, 2014 at 9:20 pm

Me too and now I realize why.


MSmith March 5, 2014 at 5:06 pm

All vitamins are very beneficial to the body. Its is so amazing sometimes what each vitamin is capable of doing. its also amazing what your body is low on and the signs and systems of a vitamin deficiency


mdanner4505 June 21, 2014 at 9:42 pm

that is correct all vitamins are beneficial to the body!


mdiaz2949 January 31, 2018 at 3:51 pm

Yes it is amazing. My grandma has always said that I need to take __ vitamin when I tell her something that is going on with me, I guess she was right about magnesium.


ethacker March 5, 2014 at 2:01 pm

I know I consume a lot of Calcium by the amount of milk I drink, broccoli I eat and cheese and yogurt I consume! Those are my favorite things to eat. Magnesium is something I have never thought about. This video explains that magnesium deficiency can be from insomnia, muscle cramps, ADD, headaches and migraines..I might want to check into this! It is possible that I have ignored it because I was unaware. I need to change my diet so that I consume more magnesium.


sboyett February 25, 2015 at 9:27 am

I thought the same thing… I need more magnesium but I don’t really like the foods listed as good sources for magnesium. I was going to look into taking a supplement. I wonder if there is a multi-mineral supplement….like the multi-vitamin supplement you can get.


Ashleigh W. July 7, 2016 at 8:01 pm

I think we all should change our diets! This is some awesome information worth practicing.


iramirez March 5, 2014 at 12:52 pm

I dislike milk and milk products so I definitely am not getting sufficient calcium 🙁 I recently said I would drink more but I always give up. I do like broccoli and eat it more often.


mpearce June 24, 2014 at 9:28 am

I don’t drink much milk either. I only like it in my frosted flakes, but I’m pretty sure the fact I’m eating frosted flakes negates the fact I’m having milk with it!


Ashleigh W. July 7, 2016 at 8:03 pm

I do not drink milk either, its like drinking bath water to me! I do love yogarts and cheeses! I need more calcium in my diet!

ckuhn March 5, 2014 at 12:45 am

I have worked in some clinical settings and i have seen many older people suffer from osteoporosis. Seeing that I believe that everyone should drink milk now as much as they can. It really does save your bones! You don’t really hear much about zinc but i had no idea where i could get it from and that it helped with scars on your skin.


wbukowski March 4, 2014 at 9:25 pm

I knew calcium and zinc were important components for the human body, but I didn’t realize that magnesium was such an important component for the body. After watching the second video, I think I need to take in more magnesium. Great videos!


chobbs March 4, 2014 at 7:44 pm

I would assume that there is a huge lack in calcium consumption today. With such prevelance of sugary dinks and sodas, I would assume that there aren’t many children or adults getting enough daily calcium. Older people especially need to be mindful of thier calcuim to keep thier bones strong and prevent osteoporosis, just as this video mentioned.
As far as magnesium, who would have known it was so critical! I never knew that lack of magnesium could cause death, or on the flipside cure many things from constipation to pre-term labor.
I never realized that zinc was crutial to the healing process. Also, I didnt know that certain dietary lifestyles, such as being a vegiterian, can require higher levels of zinc intake.


Katarina Lazic March 3, 2014 at 3:09 pm

I do drink milk, but not as much. I think I need to drink more throughout the week for more calcium.
1000 mg does seem like a lot of calcium daily.
Although, it does make sense when you get older, to take in more calcium, for the bones.


CLovell March 3, 2014 at 12:17 am

1000mg seems like alot to take in a day


jostie March 2, 2014 at 8:22 pm

I had no idea that these three were so important. I have a calcium rich diet, but i need to work on incorporating more magnesium and zinc into my diet.


cgreene March 2, 2014 at 1:33 pm

I realize the importance of Ca but I’m wondering why we always emphasize proper intake of Ca for bone health when, at times, if there are too high deposits it can lead to artery stenosis caused by Ca deposits that lead to heart issues. I’ve seen this in patients at the heart clinic where I work. Bone health is important but we have to be careful of calcium and fat intake that might affect the heart.
Many of the patients are place on Mg which helps to relax tissue and heart muscle.


beasterling March 1, 2014 at 1:12 pm

I knew that zinc was extremely important as well as calcium. I take zinc tabs when I feel a cold coming on and it normally helps shorten the illness as long as I get it in right away. I didn’t really know how important magnesium was so important.


ACOOPER March 1, 2014 at 11:47 am

I’ve learned this past year by taking an Anatomy class in college how vital Calcium is in our bodies. I learned how it is used and make certain processes work. Make sure you get enough of your daily value of calcium!


jemerson February 27, 2014 at 4:53 pm

I really think that it is a great idea to take a multi vitamin for reasons such as this. Just in case we do not know ALL of the vitamins that are good for us or all of the vitamins that we are missing from our daily regiment


Stephanie Herndon February 27, 2014 at 1:36 pm

I knew calcium was very important to our bones, I’ve known people with osteoporosis and it looks very uncomfortable. However, I had no idea about magnesium and all of it’s great benefits I take a multi-vitamin and does contain all three of these in it.


aeasley February 26, 2014 at 4:01 pm

I drink alot of milk and get alot of calcium through that and cheese as well. I have never broken a bone and have been in two car accidents where I was t-boned and it never broke anything. Most doctors say that my bones are very sturdy and that is probably because of my high intake of calcium.


JALSTON February 26, 2014 at 3:44 pm

After watching these videos, I feel like I need to take supplements. I was delightfully surprised to hear all the effects of magnesium as I hadn’t known its importance before.


Reginia Jennings February 25, 2014 at 7:39 pm

i’m not a milk drinker at all but love orange juice. i always knew the importance of calcium. i haven’t really heard much about zinc until now. I need to read up on vitamins I’m finding learning about the different vitamins very interesting


awagner March 5, 2014 at 11:46 pm

I can’t drink straight milk either. However, an alternative that I found that I could handle, I don’t know about you, is chocolate milk. I get the organic chocolate milk, because it does not contain formaldehyde. Chocolate milk is also a good post-workout drink because, along with calcium, it also contains many nutrients that promote better health, and muscle growth.


Cstrickland5947 February 25, 2014 at 4:21 pm

I never knew how important calcium is in my diet. It is a good thing I love milk and cheese. My family has always been big dairy eaters. I didn’t know magnesium was even important, but I do now.


Emerson February 24, 2014 at 2:13 am

I think that is a great idea to take a multi vitamin for reasons such as this. Just in case we do not know ALL of the vitamins that are good for us or all of the vitamins that we are missing from our daily regiment


Ashleigh W. July 7, 2016 at 8:03 pm

I agree!


kbeard7948 February 23, 2014 at 11:30 pm

I HATE milk but I am going to try to increase my intake of dairy products to provide myself with more Calcium. Also, magnesium has much more uses than what I ever knew! I am probably deficient and don’t even know. Relaxation time!


Stephanie Herndon February 27, 2014 at 1:38 pm

I’m the opposite I have to have my milk every morning, I drink it instead of coffee. I also love cheese, I’ve always told everyone if you want me to go on a diet that doesn’t let me have cheese, FORGET IT!


Autumn Donleytumn October 10, 2017 at 11:53 am

I am the same. I love cheese! I would hate to be Lactose intolerance.

Ldavis February 20, 2014 at 6:15 pm

i did not know calcium was not made in the body. I need strong bones and I will have to add this to my diet and my childs as well. We eat a lot of cheese and milk so I know that helps.


wearnest February 20, 2014 at 3:21 pm

I did not know that calcium was not made in the body. It is hard for people, like me and most my family, that are allergic to milk to get the right amount of calcium needed for strong bones. I never new that magnesium was so important. It said a person that is deficient of it is twice as likely to die. That is kind of scary. Sounds like I will definitely be checking into these to see what all I need to be eating.


mjoyner February 20, 2014 at 12:39 am

I did not know that calcium is not made in the body as well as that we need a 1000 mg a day wow


preed February 17, 2014 at 12:03 pm

I know I prrbably do not get nearly enough calcium everyday, but I had no idea that I also needed magnesium and zinc. I try and take a multivitamin to help fill any gaps in my vitamin and mineral intake but I think maybe I will try to start eating more of the vegetables that were mentioned to give me what I need, after all I don’t always remember to take my vitamin.


aeasley February 26, 2014 at 4:01 pm

My boss take almost every kind of vitamin it seems and she told my the reason of why you need zinc and magnesium. It is pretty interesting of why we need all these vitamins and how they contribute to the body.


hlong1 September 14, 2016 at 1:28 pm

I am the same way! I take a multivitamin and I do not think it is covering all I need it too! I need to make sure I start consuming foods with magnesium!


mboswell February 13, 2014 at 2:33 pm

These are very helpful pieces of information for zinc and calcium. I never knew magnesium was used for a variety of things as the man stated in the video about the ER.


ccantrell1 February 13, 2014 at 10:54 am

I had no idea that magnesium was so important! I know my diet consists of a bunch of calcium but maybe I should supplement more of my calcium rich diet into a more calcium-magnesium rich diet


bpryor February 12, 2014 at 6:46 pm

I find it shocking that calcium is not made in the body yet it’s required for our bones and teeth. I never would have guessed that magnesium was used for so many elements in the body. Often when people have muscle cramps like charlie horses, I’ve always head it was because of potassium deficiency not magnesium. I never knew anything about zinc especially that it helps heal wounds.


aschaeffer February 10, 2014 at 3:25 pm

The major takeaway I had from the three videos was to eat more nuts and beans. They are the two most accessible foods in my household with zinc and magnesium. My family does well with calcium, but the magnesium video really opened my eyes. I will immediately raid the pantry to find foods that provide magnesium and consider taking a supplement.


btubbs February 12, 2014 at 9:02 am

We keep a crock pot at my office and at least three days a week we cook beans for lunch. We have gotten pretty crafty with them.


mhicks February 8, 2014 at 3:09 pm

I didn’t know calcium wasn’t made in the body! I knew what it was good for though! Magnesium I have never paid attention to and I definitely need to use it haha because I get all of those problems that he named off! I love Epsom salt baths which was a plus to hear. Zinc is an unfamiliar mineral and not as interesting as I thought it would be so I never paid attention to it. I did not know what it was even good for! Good thing I eat the foods she named off!


sladet February 5, 2014 at 8:26 pm

I have a daughter who is allergic to dairy products. I think its beneficial to know that she will be able to get calcium from broccoli. if anyone knows of calcium rich foods i’m open for options. Thank You


wwalker3804 February 5, 2014 at 3:10 pm

Looks like milk will have to be increased in my diet.
I like pecans, almonds, and walnuts, these too must increase.
Zinc will work, I like beef, beans, and pork.


bkulis March 5, 2014 at 4:08 pm

I’m the “nut” person. I eat nuts like crazy! I think I’ve got the nuts down, but I need to do better about drinking milk…well cow milk, not almond milk. Lol.


dbalding7689 February 4, 2014 at 5:36 pm

I knew calcium was important, but I never knew HOW important! I know I don’t get enough calcium in my diet, and my mom has always told me to take a multivitamin to make up for that but I never listened! Mom is always right, maybe now I’ll start listening!


hyoung1 January 30, 2014 at 12:53 am

Calcium has been my life saver. I’ve had two children and with both I had many complications during and after they were born. The ball and socket of my hip and femur caused me pain every single time I moved. I started to take calcium to see if it would help and it only took one day for the pain to subside. As for Zinc and Magnesium. I actually have a supplement that is the two combined. Zinc helps with burns a great deal and magnesium has helped me with leg cramps. I used to have leg cramps so bad when I would try to sleep but taking the magnesium and zinc together has caused all cramps to go away. I don’t even get Charlie horses anymore when I sleep awkward. These 3 supplements are all very good for us and we should be consuming more foods that contain them to keep up good health and well-being.

Well I guess I need magnesium and zinc. I thought I was just getting tired because of my crazy life and getting older. It would be nice to add this vitamins to my diet and not be so tired and not have a headache everyday.

I watching the information on magnesium, it appears my whole family would benefit. We all suffer from headaches and being tired. We are ready to try it out.

I knew that calcium and zinc were very beneficial although I had no idea that magnesium was so important. If I feel that I am starting to get sick I will start eating zinc and vitamin C, and pounding the water. Im sure most of you have heard of Zicam. The stuff does work but the major ingredient in it is zinc.

I always start drinking orange juice when I start feeling sick, but I had never thought about zinc helping too, I’ll have to try it next time I start to get sick.

I agree with you Brandon. I didn’t realize how important magnesium was to the human body.

I agree. I never knew how important it was for your body.

I agree, I had no idea how important magnesium is to health.

My husband is a firm believer in Zicam and he rarely gets sick.
