Series to focus on magnesium

LEWISTON — The summer herb series at The Ark, 791 Lisbon St., will focus on “Magnificent Magnesium” from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Monday, June 9.

About 80 percent of Americans are deficient in the mineral. Cancer is more prevalent in those who are magnesium deficient and so is heart disease mortality. Magnesium is a powerful infection fighter and magnesium supplementation is essential for Lyme disease patients. Those attending will take home another plant for the herb garden.

There is a $10 fee, and registration is required. Call Janet Libby at 603-759-1994 or email The Ark at [email protected]
