Many people may have magnesium deficiency and not know it. Magnesium is an important mineral that makes up teeth and bones and contributes to the functioning of nearly every body organ, especially the heart, muscles, and kidneys.

Magnesium also helps to ward off chronic diseases like type 2 diabetes, says Dr. Joseph Mercola, a renowned osteopathic physician and wellness expert. Additionally, higher magnesium levels are associated with greater bone density in both men and women, and there is also some evidence suggesting that magnesium can help prevent some types of cancerous tumors.

Most magnesium is stored inside cells and in the bones, and only a small amount will show up in the blood, says WebMD.

According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, some other medical conditions like overactive thyroid, diabetes, irritable bowel syndrome, and kidney disease can contribute to magnesium deficiency. Lifestyle factors can also contribute. Drinking too much coffee, eating too much sodium, and excessive stress can all lower your levels of this important mineral.

Magnesium can be found in many different foods. Mercola recommends consuming lots of leafy greens, and he advocates juicing greens and drinking up to one quart of green juice each day. The University of Maryland Medical Center also lists tofu, beans, whole grains, almonds, cashews, pistachios, and bananas as good dietary sources of magnesium.
