serving. This counts toward the recommended dietary allowances (RDA) for women of 46
grams and 56 grams for men, which varies by age and activity level.
• Magnesium. With about 118 milligrams of magnesium, each serving helps towards the RDA of
400–420 mg in men and 310–320 in women. Magnesium is essential for health, playing a role
in over 300 chemical processes in the body.
• Phosphorous. Each serving contains 236 milligrams of phosphorus, which is about 34
percent of the RDA of 700mg for adults. Phosphorus helps the body to build healthy cells and
bones and helps cells to produce energy.

recommended daily intake of 11 mg for men, and 20 percent of the RDA of 8 mg for women.
Zinc is necessary for immunity, protein synthesis, and DNA formation.
