Four signs of magnesium deficiency, five systems that need it, and six food sources to get it

Magnesium is required for over 300 biochemical reactions in the body. Because of the large role magnesium plays in maintaining your everyday health and well-being, adequate levels of magnesium are vital for overall body wellness.

Some of the common signs of low magnesium levels can be:

  1. Experiencing tight or stiff muscles
  2. Emotional and physical tension
  3. Feelings of stress
  4. Poor sleep.

Your five key body systems that require healthy levels of magnesium to function optimally are your:

  1. Musculoskeletal
  2. Cardiovascular
  3. Nervous
  4. Immune
  5. Neurotransmitter.

Magnesium is also required for supporting healthy absorption of minerals such as calcium, zinc and iron. 

Common food sources of magnesium are:

  1. Nuts and seeds
  2. Green vegetables
  3. Dairy
  4. Wholegrains
  5. Brewer’s yeast
  6. Eggs.

In your modern-day lifestyle, sometimes dietary sources of magnesium alone may not be enough in times of extra demand. Intense stress or exercise can all impact on your normal levels of magnesium. In times of physical and emotional stress, you may utilise magnesium more and it can be common to supplement to help support normal levels of magnesium.
