Where did all the magnesium go?

We pay special attention to restoration of magnesium in the Wheat Belly lifestyle. This is because magnesium deficiency is universal, affecting virtually everyone, is severe, and has substantial implications for health. But why? Why has everyone become so depleted in magnesium in the modern world? There are five major reasons: Water filtration—We filter our water out of necessity, since modern waterways are contaminated by sewage runoff, pesticide/herbicides, algal overgrowth, etc. So, rather than drinking from a nearby stream or river that runs freely over rocks and minerals rich in magnesium, we drink water filtered by your municipality or your home device. Water filtration removes 99.9% of all magnesium, meaning you obtain virtually zero magnesium from drinking water. Reduced magnesium content of modern produce—Modern agricultural practices have led to widespread soil nutrient depletion. Larger, high-yield, high-volume strains of vegetables and fruit have led to reductions in potassium, calcium, vitamin A, magnesium, and others. The quantity of magnesium in modern produce is typically 30-50% less than that grown several decades ago, sometimes much more. Wheat and grain consumption—I continue to be shocked that conventional sources of dietary advice advise whole grains because they are rich in magnesium, ignorant of the fact that the phytate content—enriched in modern strains of wheat for their pest-resistant properties—blocks the absorption o...

The objective of this study was to evaluate post-vaccine antibody titers and circulating cellular memory development in heifers fed OG and administered a commercially available modified-live bovine respiratory disease (BRD) vaccine. Twenty-four Holstein heifers were assigned to one of two diets for 170 days: Control TMR (CON; n = 11), or TMR plus OG (TRT; 9 g/100 kg BW/day; n = 13). Samples for hematology, serology, and cellular assays were collected on D-110, 0, 21, 42, and 60 of the trial. Heifers were administered two priming doses of a modified-live BRD vaccine, with a third dose given on D0. There were n...

In this study, the influence of pyrolysis time and temperature on yield, fixed carbon and physicochemical properties of the biochar produced from Empty Fruit Bunch (EFB) were investigated. Response Surface Methodology was utilized to optimize the influence of process parameters on the surface area of activated carbon produced from the biochar in the absence and presence of ultrasonication and was coded EFB-AC and EFB-UAC respectively. The EFB-AC and EFB-UAC were characterized using BET, TGA, HRSEM, XRD, FTIR and XPS. The batch adsorption behavior of MB onto EFB-AC and EFB-UAC was evaluated. The results revealed that the op...
