Why it’s important to get enough magnesium in midlife

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of SlowMag® Mg Muscle + Heart. 

I love feeling strong and energized. To this end, every day, I work out. Yoga, Pilates, running, HIIT and more are all a part of my lifestyle. I also make sure I sleep enough and get enough rest.

I work from home, by choice, so I can take breaks to recharge. I also meditate and practice breathwork to manage stress. Last, but not least, I do my best to eat a balanced diet to stay healthy.

We may not be getting enough magnesium through our diet alone. Here is how I´ve been supplementing my intake to stay strong and heart healthy.

However, I know this doesn´t guarantee that I will get all the magnesium I need. Turns out that 7 out of 10 people aren’t getting the recommended daily amount of magnesium through diet alone.1

Bananas are often promoted as a source of magnesium, and I eat them often. However, most people would have to eat more than 13 bananas to get the daily recommended amount.† Now that’s bananas! Instead, I enjoy a banana and add SlowMag® Mg Muscle + Heart to my diet to help me get more of the magnesium I need.*

Fatty fish, such as salmon, which I happen to cook and serve weekly, is also a great source of magnesium. But did you know in order to reach the recommended daily intake of magnesium, you’d have to eat over 7 half fillets of salmon a day?† That’s a lot of salmon!

That’s where taking a magnesium supplement comes in handy.

SlowMag® Mg Muscle + Heart is a magnesium supplement that provides support for proper muscle function, energy metabolism, and cardiovascular health.*

I also like that it’s formulated to be gentle on the stomach. This is because each tablet is made with a special enteric coating to help reduce the chance of stomach upset, which is a common side effect of taking an uncoated magnesium supplement.

There is a certain peace of mind that comes with knowing that now I’m doing even more to continue to stay healthy and strong.
