I've been supplementing magnesium however...if one mineral is that low I'd imagine the others aren't in great shape either. Just because you're eating healthy doesn't mean your digestive track is working efficiently. I take Epsom salt baths too.

Then how would a multivitamin help you? Those don't tend to have very much magnesium in them, often only around 10% of the RDA. A lot of people find they do best when taking 250-500mg of Mg/day, which far exceeds that of the RDA.

I had a severe magnesium deficiency from popping too many naproxen. Thanks for not answering my question

I take separate pills for these, Holland and Barrett's has single mineral pills, that's where I buy mine. Iodine, I use Lugol's solution. It can be annoying taking lots of pills, but you can get a pill organiser to make things easier.

I haven't found any locally. There are multi mineral supplements, but they all have Magnesium Oxide, so they are a no go for me.

Multi-vitamins are a hack, marketed to women (and their children via their parents) as a cure-all for the long-term effects of a bad diet.

Ideally, you should get as many of your vitamins and minerals from food as possible. If you consistently fall short (say, on magnesium or calcium), then you might look into supplementing those individual minerals.
