Magnesium plays a central role in just about every bodily process, from the synthesis of DNA to the metabolism of insulin.
The link between poor magnesium nutrition and risks of several chronic conditions is very important. Magnesium is found in small to medium amounts in many of the Healthiest Foods. Vegetables (especially green leafy ones), nuts and seeds, and legumes are your best sources for magnesium.
Reason for the deficient magnesium intake is the tendency of the average U.S. diet to focus predominantly on heavily processed convenience foods at the expense of the green leafy vegetables, nuts and seeds, and legumes.
Magnesium is stored in the bone, and as such, it plays a key role in bone metabolism.
The low magnesium can be a cause to bone loss.
The low levels can be one of the potential contributory factors causing fatigue.
When magnesium in our diet is low, we have increased risk of depression.
