Magnesium is an essential mineral that is needed for over 300 biochemical reactions in the body. It plays a role in the immune system, maintaining normal nerve and muscle function, the production of energy, regulating blood pressure, bone health and balancing blood glucose levels. Magnesium is found in green leafy vegetables, legumes, nuts, seeds, and whole grains. Excessive alcohol intake, diabetes, the use of PPI-drugs and certain stomach disorders can impact magnesium absorption.
