Magnesium – Looking Through Oxygen’s Prism

Majid Ali, M.D. Magnesium is an excellent case for looking at nutrition through the prism of oxygen homeostasis.

Thus, the case study of magnesium offers crucially important insights into the fundamentals of the health/dis-ease/disease continuum, and sheds light on myriad
