One of the biggest contributing factors is nutrient-poor soil, making it very difficult to get the magnesium you need daily through food alone. Over the last several decades, magnesium content in food has declined dramatically from over-farming (causing the soil to become depleted) and refining food. (2)
To put this issue in perspective, almonds are one of the best food sources of magnesium. So, we sent a bag of organic, sprouted almonds to the lab to have the magnesium content analyzed.
And here’s what they found…
One ounce of organic almonds (about 23 almonds), contains 71mg of magnesium.
Now, according to the FDA, the minimum Recommended Daily Intake (RDI) of this nutrient is 420mg… that means you would need to eat at least 6 ounces of organic almonds -- that's 138 almonds -- nearly 1,000 calories worth of almonds every day!
So what happens when you don’t get enough Magnesium? It wreaks havoc and can cause all sorts of problems including:
- Muscle cramps, spasms, or twitches
- Leg cramps
- Trouble sleeping at night
- Occasional constipation
- Low energy
- Occasional headaches
- Chocolate cravings
- Feelings of Anxiousness
- Poor bone health
- Mind fog
- Low vitamin D levels
- Yeast infections
- Slow thyroid
- Mood swings
- Racing heart
