Questions and Answers
Is there a higher magnesium level in fresh new RRL, or in the dried leaves?
I have low magnesium levels and I'm looking for the highest concentration of magnesium.
There is no difference. Magnesium does not evaporate or disappear when the leaves are dried up as it is a part of a salt.
