Why You Need Magnesium
Your body canít produce magnesium, so itís important to eat magnesium-rich foods every day. Magnesium helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function, keeps your heart beating steadily and helps to build a healthy immune system.
Studies have shown that a low intake of magnesium may be linked with PMS and that magnesium may help to increase bone density in post-menopausal women.
Where you get it: Almonds, avocados, sunflower seeds, hummus, brown rice, lentils and spinach. Try to eat some of your veggies raw since cooking certain foods can significantly diminish their magnesium content.
