TOPEKA DIETICIAN
AMBER GROELING
EXPLAINS WHY THIS
MINERAL IS
ESSENTIAL TO OUR
BODIES.
Amber Groeling:
Magnesium is an
essential mineral that is
needing by over 300
functions in the body…
specifically dealing with
muscle relaxation,
calcium, and bone
mineralization.
WHEN ASKED HOW
YOU TEND TO GET
MAGNESIUM IN YOUR
DIET – THE TOP
ANSWER.
actually i take a
magnesium
supplement.
yes, I take a multi-
vitamin everyday.
Yes – I take a multi
vitamin too.
I take a supplement.
Food – ehh…
i just eat meat.
BUT AMBER SAYS –
SUPPLEMENTS MAY
NOT BE THE BEST
ANSWER.
Amber Groeling: Food
sources are always
best.
There are some
vitamins available but
they have different
levels of absorption and
they also can interfere
with medication.
So I always
recommend going a
food first with
magnesium specifically.
Amber Groeling: Dark
leafy greens are going
to be your best source
of magnesium –
specifically spinach and
Swiss chard.
And also nuts and
seeds – pumpkin seeds
and pa pita – sunflower
seeds, wheat germ,
whole grain.
Also cocoa so dark
chocolate as a little bit
of magnesium and also
dairy.
BRITTANY TAG –
DEPENDING ON

DAILY
RECOMMENDATION
FOR MAGNESIUM IS

CONSUME MORE.
