Magnesium helps to release energy from food and is important in the development and maintenance of healthy bones, nerves and muscles.
According to the NHS, magnesium can be found in a variety of foods such as spinach, nuts and wholemeal bread. However, if you have dietary requirements or allergies, a magnesium supplement may be useful.
The amount of magnesium you need is:
- 300mg a day for men (19 to 64 years)
- 270mg a day for women (19 to 64 years)
* mg – milligrams
Taking too much magnesium can be harmful. We recommend that you check with a health professional that a magnesium supplement is suitable for your age, health condition and/or other medications.
