Magnesium , Lacking In Elders adversely affecting immunity .

Elders tend to become dehydrated as well, often seen as senility .

This is an important message for anyone over 70, as well as those taking care of elderly parents.

About 70 to 80 percent of people over age 70 are not meeting their daily magnesium requirements, according to research by Consumer Reports. This is very problematic, due to the importance of magnesium in the structure and function of the immune system.

Older adults are at a higher risk of magnesium deficiency because they tend to consume fewer magnesium-rich foods than younger people. 

Additionally, the human body’s ability to absorb magnesium declines with age, so elderly people who do not eat an adequate diet and those who use prescription drugs that deplete the body’s magnesium are at risk. 

Magnesium is a key constituent in hundreds of chemical reactions in the body. Without it, our bodies cannot create adequate amounts of energy required for the immune system to function properly. It can be very difficult to source enough magnesium through the diet, especially for older adults who have problems chewing, swallowing, and digesting.

I will talk to small circles and I will council ; as targeted parents , grandparents , aunts , uncles etc. , are denied contact with a child for reasons that serve the abuser ...further abusing the child. I grasp the trauma and I have looked at the lost connection to a higher power.. I grasp when one is accustomed to privilege, equality can feel like discrimination.. Shame and affluence silences a lot of facts , truths that have been labeled "negative". It is about liberation of the soul from projections of a alienator , and abuser ..
