Patrick Sullivan: Thank you so much for joining us today. My name is Patrick Sullivan Jr. I am the President and co-founder of Jigsaw Health. We are the makers of Jigsaw Magnesium with Sustained Release Technology. Speaking of so many of our best customers on this webinar today, I've gone through the list then I notice that many of you are actually already taking Jigsaw Magnesium, some of you for past few years. So thank you so much for your business and for joining us today. I am very happy to introduce Dr. Carlyon Dean. Dr. Dean is a medical doctor, a naturopathic doctor and she's also a nutritionist. She love the Canadian but we won't hold that against her. Dr. Dean is an expert in difficult to diagnose conditions such as mineral deficiency, digestive and intestinal disorders such as IBS, hormone imbalance, estrogen dominance and yeast overgrowth. She offers telephone convocations with patients and I'd referred several Jigsaw health customers to her in the past. As you can see, her website is www.carolyndean.com. She is also the authors of many books. One of which is, The Miracle of Magnesium, which she will discussing with us today. This presentation will last approximately 30 minutes, which will have Q and A at the end. It will be electronic, so the questions will be submitted with a WebEx and I will ask them to Dr. Dean. For those of you who make it through the entire presentation, Dr. Dean and I, we have a special offer for you, we will give you a special promo code at the end of the session that will allow the first 25 customers who purchase Jigsaw Magnesium to receive a free copy of Dr. Dean's book, The Magnesium Miracle. So without further ado, I would like to turn the floor over to Dr. Dean. Dr Dean, thank you so much for coming today. Dr. Carlyon Dean: Thank you Patrick and welcome all you listeners. It's good to talk about America's lost mineral which I consider to be magnesium because 70-80% of us are deficient in magnesium. When I was first asked by Valentine Random House to write this book, I thought, well how can I find 200, 250 pages on one mineral? What I found really surprised me because I realized that I was low on magnesium. I had a little bit of heart palpitation, I had terrible cramps in my calves, which we identify as Charley Horses, I would fatigue easily, I wasn't sleeping as well as I thought I had muscle cramps. And I realized that I needed more magnesium than I was taking. So I'd like to go over what minerals do in the body. We know vitamins and minerals are essential co-factors for all the metabolic functions in the body. We know that magnesium is important for the heart, calcium for the bones, iodine for the thyroids, zinc for prostate, selenium for cancer prevention, chromium for blood sugar. With magnesium, I learned all these in biochemistry, 200 hours of biochemistry in medicine but somehow it did not get translated into my clinical application. When we learned about clinically treating patients, I was using drugs instead of using vitamins and minerals. So magnesium as you can see here on the slide, is essential for the function of over 325 different enzymes in the body. I'll go over these five essential categories and the 22 medical conditions. The first magnesium cofactor processes in enzymes that produce protein molecules in the body. The production of and transport of energy is number two. The magnesium along with B-vitamins are necessary for the activation of enzymes that control digestion and absorption and creating the adenosine triphosphate, fundamental energy molecule in the body. The synthesis in a protein is built in to. If we didn't have magnesium, we wouldn't be able to build our actual bone structure or our muscle structure. Magnesium is necessary for the RNA and DNA genetic blueprints in the body. Transmitting nerve signals, very important that magnesium allow the certain amount of calcium to enter a nerve cell. If too much calcium is allowed inside the nerve cell, it ki
