Magnesium deficiency – an essential mineral
Magnesium is an essential mineral that your body needs. Your body needs magnesium to function properly, because this mineral is involved in more than 600(!) enzyme-driven biological reactions that take place in the body. If these processes go well in the body, this results in optimal health.

What causes magnesium deficiency?
The collective magnesium deficiency in the Netherlands is partly due to pesticides that kill healthy bacteria in our soil. This means that the plants we consume often have a magnesium deficiency, which can lead to a magnesium deficiency in our body. Not only this, but also other factors in our lifestyle such as too much caffeine, alcohol, sugar, stress and certain medications can reduce the amount of magnesium we absorb.
Stress and magnesium
Magnesium: is an essential mineral – especially during stress. Magnesium is often referred to as the anti-stress mineral. (Read more about this in the blog: Reducing stress in a stress society).
Which symptoms of magnesium deficiency?
You do not immediately recognize a magnesium deficiency. Often people only recognize a magnesium deficiency when symptoms arise. If you suffer from any of the following symptoms, a lack of magnesium can be the cause: fatigue, insomnia, restless, anxiety, high blood pressure, headache, muscle weakness, recurrent bacterial and fungal infections, behavioral disorders / mood swings and depression.
What contains a lot of magnesium?
There are many benefits when you have the right amount of magnesium in your body. Food is the basis for getting magnesium. A healthy and varied diet is therefore key, with plenty of leafy vegetables, nuts and legumes. But as discussed earlier, the magnesium content in these foods largely depends on the richness of the soil in which they are grown, which is why it is best to buy organic products.
Try adding these foods in organic form to your diet to naturally increase your magnesium intake: spinach, Swiss chard, black beans, almonds, cashews, potatoes, pumpkin seeds, avocado, bananas, broccoli, cocoa, and Brussels sprouts.
Taking magnesium supplements
Because many of us fail to get adequate amounts of magnesium from our diets, supplements are often necessary to reap the benefits of magnesium experience.
