Modern Magnesium, a Mighty Mineral for Immune Support
Super Supplement #2 in Vitaminis Immune Support, Mighty Magnesium, is an essential mineral with a role in many of the body’s processes: supporting blood sugar, sleep/mood, digestion and of course, immunity.
Most of us are able to get a fair amount of magnesium from our diet, with top sources being nuts and seeds, soy foods including soymilk and edamame, vegetables such as spinach and broccoli, most beans, whole grains like brown rice, oatmeal and whole wheat bread and even fruits including banana, raisins and avocado.
However, it’s worth noting that levels of magnesium in produce are directly affected by the amount of magnesium in the soil where it’s grown. Unfortunately, some modern farming methods have depleted the soil, leaving some foods with less than they once had. With this knowledge, we look to supplementation to help ensure we maintain a good baseline and achieve the recommended range of 130mg for those ages 4-8 and 240mg for kids 9-13.
Keep in mind, you don’t have to stress about delivering the exact right amount of each and every nutrient each and every day. We prefer a holistic approach, meaning as long as your littles are getting the recommended amount on average over a couple of days, or even a week, you, and they, are doing great!
