A Magnesium Deficiency can cause depression, dizziness, muscle weakness and twitching, and premenstrual syndrome.
Magnesium is a vital component of a healthy human diet.
Its main role is as a constituent of bone.
It also assists in the transmission of nerve impulses and is important for muscle contraction.
A lack of this mineral is also believed to cause heart palpitations.
Have your bran in the morning ,and your green leafy veggies in the evening, but if you are still not getting enough magnesium in your natural diet, you might need a supplement especially in the weeks leading up to an endurance event.
A reasonably balanced diet should provide all the body's requirements, but try snacking on some sesame and pumpkin seeds before going to bed.
So, Mom... when you have PMS and have the undivided attention of the whole family, make sure that all of you eat your spinach and brocolli. The center of the chlorophyll molecule (which gives green veggies their color) contains magnesium.
Fry some halibut to enjoy with these green veggies and the combination will give you a good dose of magnesium.

Potatoes are healthy!
Not only are they low in fat, but one medium size potato contains only one-and-a-half servings of carbohydrates (dieticians recommend 4 daily servings) - meaning they are not too high in kilojoules after all (498 kilojoules a potato).
This inexpensive vegetable provides fiber if eaten with the skin and contains high levels of chromium and potassium which aid brain function.
They don't contain wheat so are a great alternative to bread.
