Are you getting enough magnesium? It’s not a question we often stop to ask, but this essential mineral plays an important role in our overall health. Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral found in our bodies, and the National Institutes of Health reports this nutrient is a “cofactor in more than 300 enzyme systems that regulate diverse biochemical reactions in the body, including protein synthesis, muscle and nerve function, blood glucose control, and blood pressure regulation.” It’s easy enough to take a supplement or enjoy a magnesium soak every night, but you can also get it from a variety of foods rich in magnesium like leafy greens, legumes, whole grains, and nuts.
The History of Life-flo
Founded in 1995, Life-flo scours the globe (we’re talking the Antarctic oceans to the New Zealand countryside) to source ingredients straight from nature, then apply scientific breakthroughs to create its sought-after products. Life-flo was one of the first products to pioneer a progesterone cream that offered an alternative to synthetic creams. It also makes a popular line of cosmeceuticals.
