  2. When someone is allergic and/or intolerant to so many foods it is hard to get all the right nutrients. I cannot have dairy, gluten, soy, fructose, bananas, tomatoes, onions, a collection of nuts. Socially speaking I am a lost cause and I do take magnesium but not enough as money only stretches so far with so many needed supplements.
