Life is a journey and every journey has a destination.
One journey ends where another begins.
A baby is born after a 9-month journey.
A child’s journey is transitioned to adulthood.
Every journey is interrupted at some point with the start of a new journey.
The cycle of journies and interruptions is continuous.
Each person journies as they choose.
Some alone, others in partnerships.
In all, we must journey, to strive, to live each journey and each stage with happiness.
Nutrition Tip for the Journey is on Magnesium
In early life, it helps with bone formation and tooth growth as well as the development of the child. In women, its importance grows with age. For women nearing or in their 40s it helps with building strong bones. This is more important for women who have breastfed and may not have fully recovered from calcium loss during that journey. Most women are restored to their pre-breastfeeding calcium levels while others may require some help to recover. It helps regulate blood pressure and sugar levels.
