My absolute favourite and ‘must have’ supplement. If you only want one supplement this is it!
Most people’s Magnesium levels are critically deficient. We don’t even know that we are magnesium deficient as the symptoms are so common people think ‘that’s just life’.
To get your levels up, eat magnesium rich foods, supplement with a good quality magnesium citrate supplement and avoid things that deplete magnesium.
The top ten foods which I eat with high sources of Magnesium are:
- Pumpkin seeds
- Black beans
- Brazil nuts
- Chia seeds
It’s important to soak nuts for twelve hours to activate them, and then rinse them, which releases enzyme inhibitors, phytic acid. Otherwise, eating nuts may increase Magnesium levels but decrease Zinc levels, which is also another essential mineral.
Take a good quality oral Magnesium supplement two times a day – with either breakfast or lunch, and dinner.
