The RDA, or Recommended Dietary Allowance, for minerals is set to prevent deficiency, not to optimize health. Yet even small amounts of mineral insufficiency can lead to big problems. Unfortunately, the majority of Americans are deficient in the mineral and essential nutrient magnesium.
In today’s episode, I talk with Dr. James DiNicolantonio, Dr. Todd LePine, and Dr. Elizabeth Boham about the importance of magnesium and selecting the best form of magnesium for your personal needs.
Dr. James DiNicolantonio is a Doctor of Pharmacy and a cardiovascular research scientist. He has contributed extensively to health policy and has testified in front of the Canadian Senate regarding the harms of added sugars. He serves as the associate editor of the British Medical Journal’s Open Heart, a journal published in partnership with the British Cardiovascular Society, and is on the editorial advisory boards of several other medical journals. He is the author or coauthor of over 250 publications in the medical literature. He also is the author of five bestselling health books, The Salt Fix, Superfuel, The Longevity Solution, The Immunity Fix, and The Mineral Fix.
