Magnesium is a mineral required to keep your bones, muscles, heart, and pretty much everything else healthy. It’s the fourth most abundant mineral in the body, required for the activity of over 300 chemical reactions. That means if you’re low in this mineral, your body can't operate at tip top shape. Studies have found, however, that nearly 70% of us don’t get enough of it! Don’t wait for symptoms of deficiency (tremors, cramps in your hands and feet, anxiety, etc.) to reveal themselves. If you consume a lot of processed foods or too much booze, or take certain medications, you might be running low. If so, an integrative nutritionist can determine your levels, guide you to more mag-rich foods, find the right supplement, and help you kick your chips-and-G&T habit!
