The importance of Magnesium in men and women

Do you know that one of the reasons you are not losing belly fat could be due to a shortage of Magnesium in your body? According to the Journal of Nutrition (2013) high Magnesium intake is associated with lower levels of fasting glucose and insulin. So, this means…eat more Magnesium rich foods: leafy vegetables, beans, and nuts.

Nutrition tip: The recommended amount of Magnesium(Mg) in women under 30 is 310mg and over 30 years old- 320mg. Mg reduces fluid retention during menstrual cycle which means, less bloating.
