Magnesium

Dr. Oz says Magnesium is needed for more than 300 chemical reactions in our body.  World research experts say 3 out of 4 people do not get enough magnesium and are magnesium deficient. A low energy level is probably one of the strongest indications that you are not getting enough magnesium.  Other signs are irritability, anxiety and lethargy. The best way to maintain your magnesium reservoir is to get it from the foods that you eat at every meal. Dr. Oz gives us his “Magnesium Must Have Grocery List” of magnesium rich foods that we should have every day.

He says to have five servings every day of any of these foods. Do not take all five servings in one meal. Starting with breakfast, and spread them throughout the day. Do this religiously for one week because it takes about a week to build up your magnesium reserves in your body.
