The recommended daily intake of magnesium for an adult is 350 mg for men and 300 mg for women (Lichton, 1989), that can be increased up to 450 mg during pregnancy and lactation.
Magnesium is responsible for many essential metabolic processes and contributes in particular to:
The lack of magnesium in the body can lead nausea and vomiting, diarrhea, high blood pressure, muscle spasms, heart failure, confusion, tremors, weakness, anxiety and loss of coordination.
So magnesium in the diet is very important!
The magnesium is contained in many food products, such as cereals (especially whole), nuts (160 mg per 100 grams of product), almonds (200 mg), peanut (120 mg), millet and buckwheat (120-140 mg), cocoa (400 mg), wheat germ, lentils and green vegetables and also in meat. Cooking food significantly reduces the availability of magnesium.
