A DIETARY SUPPLEMENT

Magnesium is an essential mineral of a healthy diet. It may help to maintain the function of the heart, muscles and nervous system.

Magnesium can be depleted by strenous physical exertion (work or exercise), by illness (such as diabetes, hypertension, arrhythmias and other chronic conditions) or by certain medications (such as diuretics) taken to treat those conditions.

Magnesium is also vital for the role it plays in helping the body to properly utilize calcium and potassium.

Common food sources of magnesium: Nuts, seeds, fish, beans, green leafy vegetables, whole grain cereals, orange juice and chocolate.

An estimated 72% of Americans report an inadequate daily dietary intake of magnesium, according to a Gallup study.
