How To Get More Magnesium

The great thing about magnesium deficiency is that you can easily reverse the condition by incorporating more magnesium-rich foods into your diet.

It’s also important to diversify your diet to include vitamin D3, vitamin B1 (thiamine), selenium (found in brazil nuts), vitamin E (can be found in avocado) and Vitamin B6 (found in lentils) to ensure proper absorption of the nutrient.

This chart of food rich in the mineral, made by Dietitians of Canada, is particularly helpful.

You can also absorb magnesium through your skin by applying special creams or magnesium oil and taking epsom salt baths.
