Why do we need Magnesium?
Magnesium is responsible for over 300 chemical reactions in the body. It helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function. It keeps your heart beating steadily. And, it helps to build a healthy immune system. Magnesium is a crucial element that your body needs to function at even the most basic levels – making it crucially important to get enough of this essential mineral on a daily basis.
Magnesium is also the fourth most abundant mineral in your body. This mineral may also play a role in addressing medical conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes and cardiovascular disease, according to the Office of Dietary Supplements, or ODS.

Also remember to consume a good ratio of Calcium to Magnesium of around anywhere from 1:1 to 2:1.
Calcium – green leafy vegetables, Spirulina, Super Greens, nuts, tahini, seeds. All devoid of animal fat (like in dairy milk), which actually decreases your absorption of Calcium in the body. Go for a plant source of Calcium – it absorbs better.
