You may know, or even have, a few men in your life that seem to think that fruit is toxic - avoid eating vegetables except chips and are the proverbial 'salad dodgers'.
They may also have an overwhelming preference for processed or ready-made foods. If this is the case, then they may be more at risk of magnesium deficiency, compared to those eating a fresh and balanced diet.
Anxiety can also increase the body’s requirements for Magnesium to help deal with stress.
As Magnesium is a vital mineral needed by every organ in the body, your heart, muscles and kidneys crave it to function properly. It’s also responsible for balancing over 300+ biochemical reactions, and is crucial for your well-being.
Men’s Lifestyle and Magnesium Levels
Dietary and lifestyle habits which increase the need for magnesium include:
• Consuming more than seven alcohol drinks per week.
• Regularly drinking fizzy drinks.
• Eating a lot of sugary foods high in refined sugar.
• Drinking tea and coffee on a daily basis.
• If you’re stressed, ill or had major surgery.
