WHY 80% of PEOPLE are DEFICIENT in MAGNESIUM
C. Norman Shealy, M.D., Ph.D.
80% of people are deficient in magnesium because
*Lack of fiber in the diet. In this situation calcium clearly inhibits magnesium absorption
*High dairy intake. Calcium is 10 times more concentrated in milk than is magnesium
*Soil is deficient in magnesium virtually everywhere because of 10,000 years of soil erosion after glaciation
*High carbohydrate, especially simple sugars, increases need for magnesium and B 6, but high simple carbohydrate interferes with magnesium absorption
*Proton pump inhibitors decrease hydrochloric acid in stomach and HCL is essential for oral absorption of magnesium
Magnesium deficiency contributes to every known disease – from anxiety to depression, cancer, atherosclerosis, fatigue, hypertension, etc.
The answer is simple! TRANSDERMAL MAGNESIUM LOTION is far better for absorption of magnesium. In one month you can restore intracellular magnesium levels AND raise DHEA levels naturally. Oral magnesium absorption is erratic, capricious and does not restore DHEA. If you insist on oral, magnesium taurate is the best.
