Since my holidays to Cyprus I've been racking my brain? what's different over there? I believe it's vitamin d from the sun and there is salt in the water, which contains magnesium, swimming, washing ect. I've been trying supplements but it's been trial and error, doctors I've met have no knowledge of supplements as they are trained with pharmaceuticals so there is limited advice from them.
We are all different and also there are different mutations of the gene, as my symptoms are completely different to others, like spasm's in my arms, legs, breathing and bad neuropathic pain.

Benefits of Zinc and Magnesium
Both zinc and magnesium are essential minerals, required for hundreds of vital life functions. Zinc allows your body's immune function to work properly, providing support for your thymus gland and white blood cells. In a related capacity, it also helps your body heal properly from wounds. A 2011 study published in Cochrane Reviews found evidence that zinc may also help reduce the severity of cold symptoms.
Zinc is a trace mineral, so its recommended daily amount of 15mg or men and 12 mg for women may seem quite low when compared to other minerals.
Magnesium plays a major role in nerve and muscle function, essential for over 300 body processes. It helps your body metabolize food so that you have energy to carry out your everyday tasks. Its support of metabolism continues in its support of insulin production and use by your body. It is essential for bone formation as well as heartbeat regulation.
Side Effects of Taking Zinc and Magnesium
Generally, both minerals are safe to take. In fact, you may find supplements which include both along with calcium as a combination supplement to support good bone and teeth formation as well as prevent osteoporosis.
