Magnesium plays a vital role in health and disease prevention. Unfortunately, its importance is not stressed or addressed frequently enough - magnesium deficiency is rampant. It’s estimated that up to 80% of the population is not getting adequate magnesium (1). I have personally supplemented with magnesium for years, and it's one of the top five nutritional supplements I recommend to patients. Magnesium is one of those rare interventions that nearly everyone can benefit from.
