Top 8 foods that provide the body with magnesium:

Thanks to Jared Rice

Magnesium is one of the essential minerals your body cannot live without. Literally.

Magnesium is a key participant in more than 300 chemical reactions through which metabolism occurs. It provides mobility and proper muscle function. Thanks to him, the nervous system correctly transmits signals from the brain to various organs and tissues and vice versa. Inside the brain, however, too.

Magnesium helps maintain a stable heart rate and balanced blood sugar levels. Also, the mineral is directly involved in the synthesis of proteins and DNA, that is, it helps the body to recover, maintain health and youth.

Despite such high importance, our body does not know how to produce magnesium on its own - we get it from food. Women 19 and older need 310 mg of magnesium per day to stay healthy, men under 30 need 400 mg, over 30 need 420 mg
