About this PDF
Magnesium is an essential nutrient that many adults are missing in their diet. Plants like spinach, Swiss chard, pumpkin seeds, and peas are great natural sources of magnesium, but plant-based magnesium supplements are also a great way to increase magnesium intake.
Magnesium supports the body in multiple ways, promoting healthy bones, blood glucose levels, energy levels, and electrolyte support. Many adults – as many as 50 percent – do not get enough magnesium in their diet for good health. This is partly due to reduce vegetable intake, but reduced mineral content in soil and crops is also a factor.
