Foods With Magnesium

Foods Featuring Magnesium: A Comprehensive List

Magnesium is like magic for our bodies. Especially for bodies that have trouble sleeping, suffer from muscle cramps and can't handle the pain that comes with that time of the month. If the benefits of magnesium are new to you — FYI it can help keep your hunger cravings in check, too! — it's not too late to show your body some love. According to the Australian Government's National Health and Medical Research Council the recommended dietary intake for women aged 19-30 is 310 mg/day and 400 mg/day for men in the same demographic. That said, it's important to note that excessive magnesium consumption can cause diarrhoea, nausea and stomach cramps, so don't over do it.

Here is your comprehensive list of all the foods you need to be eating if you find your body is lacking in magnesium.
