List of Magnesium Rich Foods

Many conditions are affected by a lack of magnesium and would benefit from including in your diet as many magnesium rich foods as possible.

What would a lack of magnesium do?

Well, when you lack magnesium, your heart beats irregularly, arteries stiffen, constrict and clog, blood pressure rises, blood tends to clot, muscles go into spams, insulin grows weaker, blood sugar jumps, bones lose strength and pain signals intensify.

By carefully selecting as many of the magnesium rich foods listed below as you can, you'll be making a tremendous difference to your health.
