Magnesium is a mineral that’s crucial to the body’s function. Magnesium helps keep blood pressure normal, bones strong, and the heart rhythm steady. A balanced diet that includes green and leafy vegetables such as spinach and broccoli, dairy products, and fibre-rich nuts, seeds, legumes and whole-grains would normally supply an adequate daily intake of magnesium.

Too much alcohol, caffeine and salt, as well as excessive sweating, prolonged stress and heavy periods can reduce magnesium below optimum levels. Magnesium works within our cells — the powerhouses, factories and regulators of the body’s systems. It is a necessary part of hundreds of biochemical reactions occurring constantly inside our cells, magnesium’s presence or absence affects the brain, the muscles, and the heart and blood vessels.
