Magnesium has always been abundant in our regular diet, but growing demands on both our bodies and food sources mean that many of us will be deficient in magnesium or at least benefit from a magnesium supplement.

So where did that magnesium go?

Magnesium has generally been found in the highest concentration in dark leafy greens, but also in nuts, seeds, fish, bananas and dark chocolate (thankfully!). However due to the growing demands on our farms to produce more regularly and more rapidly, the magnesium in the soil has gradually been depleting, hence less magnesium for us. Secondly, if you are one of the many that ever suffers from stress, overwork or dehydration, you have been depleting your own stores of magnesium.
