Why is Magnesium so Important?

STRAIGHT TALK FROM YOUR PHARMACIST

Magnesium is a mineral which plays a role in many of the body’s activities. Muscle function, nerve activity and acid-base balance are some of the areas in which Magnesium is crucial. Unfortunately Magnesium deficiency is common. A 1988 study cites “Magnesium is the most under-diagnosed electrolyte abnormality.” Up to 75% of the population can be Magnesium deficient.

Pure Lab Vitamins founder Cyrus Kuhzarani, an Ottawa-based pharmacist, will discuss the ways
in which Magnesium is depleted in the body (often through common prescription medications) and
what is the best type of Magnesium to replenish the body’s stores.

Give your gut some love!

The holiday season is the time of year when our days and nights seem to revolve around friends, family, parties—and of course, food!

Days and nights that revolve around rich, savory foods can wreak havoc on our gut. Give your gut a little love by including some fermented foods in your post-celebration wind-down.

Fermented foods are foods that have been through a process of lacto-fermentation in which natural bacteria feed on the sugar and starch in the food creating lactic acid. This process preserves the food, and creates beneficial enzymes, b-vitamins, Omega-3 fatty acids, and various strains of probiotics.
Dandelion Foods has a variety of fermented foods in store, like yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut, kimchi, kombucha, pickles. Stop in and we’ll find the one that is right for you!
