Morley on "Livin' La Vida Low-Carb" Show

From livinlavidalowcarb.com
In Episode 602 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” I’m pleased to bring you wellness coach, certified nutrition educator and bona fide magnesium expert Morley Robbins. We all know there are benefits to getting adequate amount of vitamins and minerals into our diets through both the foods we eat as well as added supplementation. However, many people neglect the importance of certain critical micronutrients that they need in their bodies to function as optimally healthy as possible.
That’s a message that Morley “Magnesium Man” Robbins is seeking to convey to the public regarding the subject of magnesium through things like the Magnesium Advocacy Group. While Vitamin D and Vitamin C get most of the headlines these days when it comes to their importance on human health, Morley makes the argument that magnesium deserves a place at the table of discussion within the context of gaining health. Listen in as Morley and I talk about this lesser-known but incredibly important nutrient that everyone needs to be more aware of getting adequate amounts of in their diet. ENJOY!
