Up to 80 percent of Americans are deficient in magnesium. The most beneficial way to get it is through supplements. You can get magnesium through eating whole foods like leafy greens, avocado, nuts, yogurt, kefir, bananas, dark chocolate, and legumes, but you won’t get any where near the daily value that you need.
There are different types of magnesium and each one does different things. Magnesium glycinate is often used because it is the best-absorbed form of magnesium & one of the gentlest on the stomach. Take 1200mg Magnesium glycinate morning and afternoon split if you’re experiencing any of the symptoms below. To relieve menstrual cramps take 800mg some days before your period, during your period, and then drop down to 600mg daily. Safe for pregnant women and beast feeding. ✨Benefits:
