Magnesium is an important essential macro-mineral that only makes up 0.05% of our body weight but is involved in several hundred enzymatic reactions which contribute to many bodily functions.
Consumption of alcohol, use of diuretics, diarrhea, the presence of fluoride and high levels of zinc and vitamin D all increase the need for magnesium.
Consumption of fats, calcium and D and proteins decrease magnesium absorption as do foods high in OXALIC ADID- such as almonds, chard, cocoa, rhubarb, spinach and tea.

I'm Elizabeth and I love cooking! When my son was faced with many different food allergies, cooking became very challenging. Now I like to educate people about what they are putting in their mouth as well as inspire others that cooking healthy allergen friendly foods are easy and delicious.
