Magnesium, my favourite mineral ✨
Most of us are deficient for a variety of reasons including depletion of nutrients in our soil, chronic stress, poor diet, digestive issues, high calcium intake, medication use & more.
Magnesium deficiency can look like low energy, poor sleep, headaches, period problems, restlessness, anxiety, as well as sore, tight, weak and/or twitching muscles to name a few! ⚡️
Some great food sources of magnesium include: • pumpkin seeds • flax and chia seeds • spinach 🌱 • kelp and seaweeds • avocado 🥑 • almonds • cashews • swiss chard • black beans • hemp hearts • dark chocolate 🍫
Other foods with magnesium include: all leafy greens, chickpeas, oysters, salmon, banana, squash, other nuts and seeds, sweet potato, oats, buckwheat, beans, legumes, quinoa, rice, broccoli, whole grains, coffee, molasses, bone broth & more!
Magnesium supplements can be very useful and I recommend them a lot for a variety of reasons. 💊Different forms of magnesium are better depending on the situation!
