How often is it that someone afflicted with asthma walks into their doctor and is told to supplement with magnesium? On an educated guess, I’d say not all too often.

1. Every parent wants their child to be a diligent student – pay attention in school, get good grades, and overall just be “smart”, right? So, what if someone told you that the nutrients you provide play a strong role in your child’s intellectual growth and intelligence? Studies show that mineral supplementation – with an emphasis on magnesium – in juveniles produces significantly increased I.Q. as well as a reduction in brain wave abnormalities.
