New You Anti-Aging Tip: Eat enough magnesium-rich foods to treat diseases and maintain overall health.

Women over 31 must craft a diet to meet the recommended 320 mg of magnesium per day. Magnesium is a vital mineral involved in more than 300 essential metabolic reactions, but 68% of people do not consume enough, according to National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. Respondents who consumed less than half the recommended daily dose were twice as likely to develop conditions such as heart disease, diabetes and specific cancers, while those who consumed the proper amount will benefit from vast health benefits: lower blood pressure, heart and digestive health, and detoxification. Additionally, a recent study indicated the magnesium in conjunction with calcium actually increased the bone mineral density of women dealing with osteoporosis. How can you be sure to eat more magnesium? Boost your intake of magnesium infused foods with 100% bran cereal, peanuts, brown rice, almonds and green leafy vegetables.

Get Your Daily Intake:
½ cup of 100% Bran Cereal
1 cup brown rice
2 bananas
1 oz. almonds
