Most of us have a cabinet full of supplements that at some point, get neglected. Whether it’s because you fell out of your routine or you forgot why you even started it in the first place, there’s one that most Americans could benefit from adding back into their regimen: magnesium.
Studies show that the majority of the population is at risk for magnesium deficiency due to a variety of lifestyle factors, including a diet high in processed food. Certain illnesses or health conditions, including Type 2 diabetes or alcohol dependency, can make you susceptible to low magnesium levels, too. A 2013-2016 analysis from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey found that 48% of Americans don’t get adequate magnesium in their diets.
