My cannot reach my magnesium goals either. My dr. has recommended that I purchase a magnesium/zinc supplement. She doesn't want them taken separately. She wants the correct "formulary", but alas -- I don't think the combination exists without the addition of calcium.

I eat 5-10 servings of fruit and vegetables a day, and magnesium is still hard for me to reach the 100% level on SP's trackers. The other thing that magnesium is needed for, that the article fails to mention, is that over 300 enzymes require magnesium ions to function. So, do I supplement--on most days, yes.

Selenium has been shown to help prevent cancer. Many places have noted the benefits. From this article
"Nearly 200 animal studies have been conducted to evaluate the effects of supernutritional levels of selenium on experimental carcinogenesis using chemical, viral and transplantable tumor models. Of these, two-thirds have found that high levels of selenium reduced the development of tumors at least moderately (by 15 to 35% compared to controls) and in most cases very significantly (more than 35%). Only in a very few cases was selenium found not to be effective. " Of course, many people thought Linus Pauling was a flake about Vitamin C too

I eat plenty of veggies, fruits (at least 5/day), and nuts and I can never get enough magnesium.
