Which Foods Have Magnesium
Magnesium is found naturally in dark leafy vegetables, beans, seeds, and nuts, as well as many sources of spring water. It’s not found in your tap water. Magnesium is leached from our bodies by things like alcohol, coffee, salt, and sodas. To get the FDA recommended allowance each day, an adult male would have to eat at least 17 cups of raw spinach, or 13 cups for a female. Most of us aren’t eating that many vegetables so it’s not hard to see why the modern homo sapien might be magnesium deficient.
The Best Way To Take Magnesium
A good supplemental dose for Magnesium is 400-500 mg. Magnesium supplements come in a plethora of forms, so the choices can be overwhelming. I like the Natural Calm brand, which you mix with hot water to make a tea before bed. It tastes great and it’s a nice way to wind down in the evening. In fact, it’s an important part of my nightly sleep ritual.
