Leafy Greens have numerous health benefits

A new study out of Harvard University shows that diets high in the mineral magnesium seem to reduce the incidence of sudden cardiac failure – at least in women. So where do you get magnesium in your diet? Greens. Magnesium is the central element in the chlorophyll molecule which gives plants their green color. So every green leafy plant you eat is going to provide you with loads of magnesium in the form of chlorophyll.

So eat more salads and green smoothies and give your heart the gift of health.

    I remember in your recent video that iron absorption id greater with Vit C, and wonder if there is something that helps absorption of magnesium as well. I remember reading an article years ago that said our absorption of magnesium was directly related to our consumption of something else… but can’t remember what it was. In your experience, is this something we don’t really need to be concerned about?

    Also, is there some way to subscribe to your blog?

    Thanks!
