Magnesium is one of the most common elements in the Universe and one of the most abundant elements in the human body. It is an essential mineral that every organ in the body relies upon, one reason why it is often referred to as the multi-tasking mineral.

Magnesium is an essential mineral for a functioning metabolism and helps reduce tiredness and fatigue. It helps turn the food we eat into energy and helps to make sure the parathyroid glands, which produce hormones important for bone health, work typically. Sufficient magnesium levels are essential for normal muscle function and the functioning of the nervous system. Magnesium plays an essential role in the process of cell division.

Magnesium benefits

Magnesium is an essential mineral nutrient for all living things. In humans, it plays a role in many various biological systems.

Magnesium contributes to:

  • normal functioning of the nervous system

  • the maintenance of normal teeth

  • a reduction of tiredness and fatigue

  • normal energy-yielding metabolism

  • electrolyte balance

  • normal protein synthesis

  • normal muscle function

  • normal psychological function

  • the maintenance of normal bones

Foods rich in magnesium

Foods such as seeds, spinach, squash, brown rice and green leafy vegetables are fantastic healthy choices. In addition, kelp, almonds, cashews, molasses, buckwheat, brazil nuts and pecans are all excellent sources of magnesium.

Alternatively, juicing is a quick and easy way to incorporate more magnesium-rich foods into your diet with minimal effort.

Something as simple as drinking less coffee and alcohol can also go a long way to increasing magnesium levels in adults. Coffee, alcohol, and salt are diuretics and cause us to go to the loo more often, diluting the minerals we gain from eating healthy foods.

Magnesium intake

The EU Nutrient Reference Value (NRV) is 375 mg/day, which it should be possible to get from your daily intake of nutrients in a healthy balanced diet.

While we should get all the magnesium we need from our diets, those who need a little extra reassurance could benefit from food supplements.

A nutritional supplement like Omega-3 & Multivitamins MAN and Omega-3 & Multivitamins MAN 50+ contain magnesium and other essential multivitamins and minerals that can be effectively absorbed to support you from the inside as you get to age.
