12/09/2013 - Am I missing vital nutrients...?
Monday, December 09, 2013
Some of the latest data to come out about magnesium has been pretty spot on, at least where I am concerned. Also the message from the Heart Health group on fiber and how most Americans just are not getting enough of it...
Here is what I did:
I changed my tracker and added Magnesium, Sodium and Fiber. I used to log into another website for tracking my nutrition and I was always amazed at how much sodium I was unaware of consuming! That changed my diet drastically.
As for the magnesium... as a young woman, I suffered... SUFFERED with PMS. Come to find out, MAGNESIUM could have been the culprit. I did take care of that issue by taking Evening Primrose oil. It truly was a "MAGIC" pill. I had such relief, you could not begin to understand it. Here is a link to one of the latest articles by Dr. Mark Hyman... http://www.huffingtonpost.com/
I am just amazed all the time by some of the information from this man. It appears the benefits of Evening Primrose Oil have nothing to do with Magnesium but the Omega's 6 & 9 plus Linoleic Acid... hmmm.
Well, I have known I need to track my sodium for some time now, but did not realize we could add that to our tracker... it is done, I am happy... pushing onward to better days!
