by Kirti Salunkhe, MD Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) are essential nutrients that must be obtained through diet or supplementation. For cardiac health, dietary intake of omega-3 PUFAs  is a recommendation widely recognized by many patients and healthcare providers alike.1 However, as a recent publication in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), showed, there are indications that omega-3 PUFAs are beneficial in other systems as well. Researchers in Taiwan, from a multi-center collaboration, released their results of a…

by Bianca Garilli, ND Magnesium is the 4th most abundant mineral in the human body following calcium, sodium, and potassium. Intracellularly, magnesium is the 2nd most abundant cation behind only potassium.1 The number of essential roles magnesium plays in the body is extraordinary, with over 300 enzymes requiring magnesium as a co-factor for proper functioning.1 This essential element is involved in numerous critical physiological processes such as energy production (ATP metabolism, oxidative phosphorylation, and glycolysis), protein synthesis, muscle contraction, nerve…
