About half the magnesium in your body is found in the bones. The rest is in muscles and in the blood. Where does your body get all this magnesium? You can find this important mineral in plenty of foods:

  • dark green vegetables like spinach
  • whole grain breads
  • nuts like almonds
  • legumes like peanuts and beans
  • seeds like flax seed
  • chocolate or cocoa
  • dairy products like yogurt
  • fish like haddock

In other words, if you eat a healthy diet, you probably get enough magnesium. Unfortunately, many Americans get too little. At this time of year, when you may be relying on fast food to get through your busy day and filling up on party treats, you can easily miss out on the magnesium you need.

There are also some health conditions, such as diabetes, and medications, such as antibiotics, that can increase the need for magnesium.

Magnesium may help not only with normal functioning of the body, but also with a variety of ailments that are associated with stress. Again, this is the time of year when stress can peak - even though you're having fun.
