On the other hand, maintaining adequate magnesium levels is crucial for optimal health and preventing and reversing disease.
The good news is that it’s SO easy to meet the latest recommended daily allowances, which is 400mg/per day for Women and 500mg/per day for men.
I LOVE pumpkin seeds (AKA Pepitas, I tend to sprinkle them on errrryyything…these green, bitter-ish seeds are number 1 on the magnesium list. (win)…I hope you find ways of including these foods in your daily diet.
