NUHS Faculty Jennifer Gantzer, DC, MS, DACBN, FACN, was recently featured in “Magnesium’s Magnitude: The Crucial Mineral You Shouldn’t Count Out,” an article in CMA Today, a bimonthly magazine published by the American Association of Medical Assistants.
Dr. Gantzer discusses the importance of magnesium, an essential mineral, and how low magnesium levels can lead to health issues like hypertension or diabetes.
“[Magnesium] has a physiological role in the body. However, our body cannot make it. That means we have to eat it or we have to supplement it,” says Dr. Gantzer. “[Magnesium] has to come from outside sources.”
Dr. Gantzer also shares a list of natural food sources that can help readers meet the daily required levels of magnesium along with how supplement properly.
