Odd Portions

I noticed that my mult-vitamin and mineral supplement does not offer anywhere near the same RDA of most of the various nutrients it contains. For instance, I'm getting 93% of my iodine requirement but only .13% of my magnesium. Are they out trolling the commodities markets deciding the mix based on the spot price? Probably not, but what is going on?

    Eating a variety of whole grains, legumes, and vegetables (especially dark-green, leafy vegetables) every day will help provide recommended intakes of magnesium and maintain normal storage levels of this mineral.
    This is especially important for the postmenopausal years since some evidence suggests that magnesium deficiency may be an additional risk factor for postmenopausal osteoporosis.
