• Did you know that magnesium supports over 300 processes in the body? Every single cell in your body relies on magnesium. It’s involved in energy production, protein synthesis, muscle contraction, normal heart rhythm (beat), glutathione (a powerful antioxidant) production, and bone structure.
• Magnesium also helps us during stressful times. Research has shown that diets rich in magnesium help people cope better with high stress. The American College of Nutrition actually recommends supplementing with magnesium during times of high stress.
• To ensure you are getting an adequate intake of this essential mineral, include foods high in magnesium, such as almonds, hazelnuts, brown rice, oat bran, bananas, green leafy vegetables, and lima beans. Dietary supplements can also help you meet your magnesium needs. Make sure you are getting enough calcium if you supplement. Increased magnesium without calcium can disrupt the balance between these two minerals.
• NUTRILITE® DOUBLE X® Multivitamin/Multimineral Supplement and NUTRILITE Daily supplement provide magnesium and can help fill in dietary gaps.
