Magnesium, how important and how to take?
A dear nursing friend of mine suggested I supplement my diet with Mg. She thought it would help in a few areas, such as sleep, cramps, menopause, restless leg etc. I thought I was getting enough with my food intake, my daily green smoothie powder, avocado, cashews, almonds, dark chocolate, oatmeal, spinach etc. I believe women over 40 should receive around 400mg of Mg daily. Maybe a top up with a supplement for a month or so could help. What sort of Mg should I ingest? Any thoughts?
