NCI Well Connect Mid-Week Brief
February 28, 2018
Dear Steve, 

DID YOU KNOW that keeping daily food consumption within a 9-12 hour period is crucial for giving your digestive system time to rest, repair, replace, and regenerate?

Today is the last day you can take advantage of February's sale items and the first day you can purchase March sale items. Enjoy!

Is it the eighth wonder of the world? Is it a Guinness World Record? It's been one of the world's most guarded secrets. How does Steve get his shopping done at three grocery stores in under two hours?

If you want to read about how he accomplishes this, and why Whole Foods is not included in his big three, you have to be a NCI Well Connect Member to get today's special issue.


Metagenics should serve as an example for every probiotic manufacturer. Here's why.

Have a happy, healthy day! Steve and Bonnie
Low Mag Means Low D
Bonnie and Steve: If you've questioned why we regurgitate study after study on the benefits of magnesium, this should put your hesitancy to rest.

A study from this month's Journal of the American Osteopathic Association states that vitamin D cannot be metabolized without sufficient magnesium levels. 

The authors suggest that vitamin D remains stored and inactive for as many as 50 percent of Americans. In addition, vitamin D supplements increase a person's calcium and phosphate levels even while they remain Vitamin D deficient. People may suffer from vascular calcification if their magnesium levels aren't high enough to prevent the complication.

This is why we say that you should always take magnesium, vitamin D, and calcium together.

The researchers mention that magnesium also reduces osteoporosis, helping to mitigate the risk of bone fracture that can be attributed to low levels of vitamin D. Deficiency in either nutrient is reported to be associated with various disorders, including skeletal deformities, cardiovascular diseases, and metabolic syndrome.

While the recommended daily allowance for magnesium is 420 mg for males and 320 mg for females, most Americans don't even come close to that amount. That's why it is so important to not only supplement with magnesium, but take a source that is absorbed optimally.
