Best Sources of Magnesium
One of the best supplement forms is 'Ultra Mag' made by Source Natural (200 mg tablets w/ B-6)
Liquid trace minerals (Bio Nativus) Minerals (minus the salt) from Utah's Great Salt Lake – Directions: 12 drops in a glass of distilled water or 40 drops in a gallon - this is a beautiful source of Trace Minerals and has 6 mg of magnesium in each drop.
Chelated Magnesium made by Carlson is a good magnesium supplement (200 mg)
Good sources of magnesium from natural foods can be found in the supermarket or your favorite natural foods store. Organically grown foods are best and contain the most nutrients and fewest chemical additives: Rolled oats which can be made by just soaking some overnight in just enough water to cover them. You can put some raisins, and cinnamon in with them, and sweeten it with a tablespoon of honey.
Try to minimize the milk (85% of black people don't digest it well because of the lack of lactase.) Cheerios without sugar, Wheatena, Uncle Ben's Brown Rice.
Raw Almonds are one of the greatest sources of magnesium, and calcium. You can also use raw pecans, but it is best not to use the canned type with all the oil and salt on them.
Raw or boiled peanuts, dry roasted peanuts, or natural peanut butter, the kind without hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils. (Note: Many people do not digest peanuts well.)
All greens are loaded with magnesium and calcium, things like dark green lettuce, kale, collard greens, turnip greens, raw spinach. If they are cooked in water, you need to drink the water, or put it in the soup because the magnesium dissolves in the water.
Making soup with lots of greens in it, like parsley, is a great idea.
Make chicken soup, hamburger soup, etc. and cut up a whole bunch of parsley and put it in the soup. Adding Italian herbs or bouquet garni adds great flavor.
Remember that anything that is green contains lots of magnesium, and calcium.
Look at the last page of the Calcium-magnesium form to see the foods that are rich in magnesium and calcium (next page).
Remember --- Magnesium gives energy, helps to prevent muscle cramps, heart attacks, arthritis, and kidney stones.
