Health Hack! Magnesium Rich Foods

It makes sense to fuel our bodies with the best possible food we can. Or at least try to more often than not.

I have mentioned magnesium and important a number of times whether it be through supplementation or food.

Magnesium is involved in over 300 chemical reactions within the body and if you exercise frequently levels can soon become depleted. It helps to maintain normal nerve and muscle function, promotes a healthy immune system, can regulate blood pressure and keep our bones strong.

If you needed anymore of a reason to up your magnesium levels check this study out!

There was a double blind placebo controlled study published in the journal of research and medical sciences. All participants had chronic sleep issues.

Now for the results.

The group taking the magnesium supplement had dramatically improved sleep onset meaning they fell asleep quicker. Overall sleep time and efficiency improved meaning sleep cycles were more efficient.

Furthermore there were improvements in melatonin and reduced serum cortisol all from improved levels of magnesium. And trust me when I say these are both crucial for creating a great sleep environment.

How to up your Magnesium game.

Anything green will help along with fish, nuts, seeds and various fruits. Keep focussing on whole foods, vegetables and fruits. It doesn’t need to be perfect it just needs to be the best you can make it.
