The Top 6 Benefits of Magnesium + How to Make Sure You Are Getting Enough

The Top 6 Benefits of Magnesium + How to Make Sure You Are Getting Enough

Let’s talk magnesium—it’s one of those minerals many of us simply aren’t getting enough of, and being deficient can lead to a whole host of uncomfortable symptoms. 

From muscle cramps, depression, fatigue, and even high blood pressure, a lack of magnesium may be to blame. 

Read on to learn about the importance of magnesium and how this one superfood will help optimize your intake. 

The Benefits of Magnesium

Did you know that every cell in the body contains magnesium and needs it to function? It’s also involved in over 600 different biochemical reactions, helping us convert the foods we eat into energy, make new proteins, support muscle contraction and relaxation, and even help create as well as repair DNA. 

Plus, magnesium has also been found to:

  • Help fight depression
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Help prevent muscle cramps 
  • Fight migraine headaches
  • Ease PMS symptoms 
  • Provide the body with some powerful anti-inflammatory properties

It’s truly an amazing mineral that we can’t afford to overlook and not get enough of. And, the good news is that it’s pretty easy to get enough from diet alone. 

Here’s how much we need to get per day

Adults Ages 19-20 years old
 Adults Ages 31-50 years old
Adults Ages 51+ 

    WOMEN: 310 mg

    MEN: 400 mg

       WOMEN: 320 mg

       MEN: 420 mg

     WOMEN: 320 mg 

     MEN: 420 mg 

The Number One Most Delicious Way to Pack in a Healthy Dose of Magnesium

One of the most delicious ways to get a powerful punch of magnesium is through enjoying dark chocolate. In fact, in a 3.5 ounce serving of 70-85% dark cacao, you’ll get a whopping 33% of the recommended dietary intake of magnesium. Now, that’s impressive! 

Pair dark chocolate with some other magnesium-rich foods like pumpkin seeds, spinach, almonds, avocado, and wild-caught salmon, and you’ll have no problem reaching that daily recommended intake. 

Need a mouthwatering and nutritious way to get a daily dose of chocolate to supercharge your magnesium intake? 

Sip on a mug of Cacao Bliss, or use to make a healthy chocolatey dessert with a boost of magnesium. 

Plus, not only will you reap all the benefits magnesium has to offer, but you'll be optimizing your health with additional superfoods like turmeric and cinnamon bark. It’s a guilt-free way to enjoy chocolate every single day for the ultimate magnesium-rich beverage.

Thank you for the information, I already take magnesium as well enjoy Cacao Bliss 3-4 times a week. I find taking the extra magnesium really helps with muscle and energy development as I exercise regularly.
