Food Isn't Enough

From eNewsletter 12/28/2022

DID YOU KNOW that a study from British Journal of Nutrition states that magnesium supplementation has a significantly positive effect on glycemic control in type 2 diabetics? The magnesium source matters. We have always suggested a glycinate source for daily use because it is easy on the bowel and best absorbed. Glycine, the amino acid that magnesium is bound to for this source, turns into the calming brain neurotransmitter GABA. Consequently, we only recommend the oxide source for those who have motility dysfunction confirmed by a health professional. Client Feedback A client sent us an unsolicited message regarding our Pain Stick: "I bought one of these years ago from you and it is expensive but I have to say that it absolutely does work. And I have bought many of them since then. I was so glad to see that you had a pain product that you could recommend because when you Google, you have no idea with all of the choices whether any of them will work. When I have pulled a muscle in my back as often happens when I am trying to get out of bed and into my wheelchair or out of the wheelchair and onto the toilet, I put this on the area and it immediately takes the pain away. And it lasts a long time and is easy to use. I highly recommend it." Holiday Office Hours December 28-30 9AM-5PM December 31 9AM-2PM January 1 CLOSED January 2 OPEN
