Products containing magnesium: bananas, pumpkin seeds, blue poppy seed, cashew nuts, beans, almonds, sunflower seeds, oatmeal, buckwheat, peanuts, pistachios, dark chocolate and sesame seeds on wooden table

It’s impossible for humans to be in several places at once, but for magnesium, it’s a job requirement. At the cellular level, magnesium is involved in carrying out hundreds of different processes simultaneously throughout our bodies. In fact, without it, our bodies would completely shut down.

That’s why it’s shocking to discover that many Canadians don’t get enough of this mega-important mineral. Inadequate magnesium levels can spell trouble for some of your body’s most vital systems, including immune function, bone health, and even stress.

Fortunately, taking a magnesium supplement can help replenish your body’s magnesium levels and keep them from falling to dangerous lows.
