Nutritional Concepts Mid-Week Brief
December 3, 2014
Dear Valued Subscriber,

Did you know that optimal balance of magnesium to calcium is required to control the chemical conduction at the neuron synapse in the brain? Magnesium blocks entry of calcium into neurons until the appropriate moment. Not enough magnesium allows calcium to enter our neurons willy-nilly, causing them to misfire and act erratically.

Frankenfood Mashup
Steve: A Food Mashup is two foods combined to create a third, hybridized variety. While they have become popular over the last 18 months, get a load of this.

Church's Fried Chicken will unveil their newest concoction, Oreo Biscuit Bites. They are putting Oreo pieces in honey-butter biscuits, then covering the whole thing with vanilla icing glaze.

Even better was the company's statement: "We're proud to expand on a favorite and make biscuit history with our delicious Oreo Biscuit Bites," exhorted Church's chief marketing officer.

 

They'll make history alright. It'll be history for those who make a habit of eating them!

 

Exercise? Check. Female? Check. Magnesium? 

Magnesium deficiency is associated with poor physical performance. A new study inAmerican Journal of Clinical Nutritionexamined how 12 weeks of magnesium supplementation affects healthy elderly women's physical performance.

 

After 12 weeks, the women taking 300 mg. of supplemental magnesium showed significantly better Short Physical Performance Battery scores, chair stand times, and walking speeds than the control group. These findings were even more evident in participants with a magnesium dietary intake lower than the Recommended Dietary Allowance.

 

The researchers suggest a role for magnesium supplementation in preventing or delaying the age-related decline in physical performance.

 

Bonnie: Magnesium is a very underrated nutrient for physical activity of all degrees of intensity. It is the most important nutrient in my eyes.
