These days there are so many supplements available, and they all sound so great, that it can be difficult to figure out which ones you should actually be taking – after all, we can’t take all of them!
So today we’re talking about magnesium. People rave about this mineral all the time, and for good reason: it’s involved in over 300 chemical processes in the body, from energy production to muscle control. Magnesium deficiency is also really common these days because intensive farming has depleted magnesium from our soils, and less magnesium in the soil means less magnesium in our food. This, and the fact that many of us aren’t eating enough healthy, magnesium-rich foods to start with!
