How is it that your body often runs out of the fourth most abundant mineral in it? More than 3,750 magnesium-binding sites have been found in human proteins, and it is important for more than 300 different enzymes in your body. Here’s what happens when you are low on magnesium.
1. Muscle Cramps And Spasms
Low levels of minerals in your body can cause cramps and spasms. Magnesium is very important for muscle relaxation. When your body lacks magnesium, it can involuntarily contract, which can cause painful spasms.1
2. Cravings For Chocolate
Do you often feel that you need to eat a certain kind of food right away? When we crave for foods, our body is trying to tell us that it needs a certain nutrient out of it. You have to listen to your body and interpret what it wants exactly. Similarly, when you’re craving for chocolates, you’re craving for magnesium.2
Dark chocolate contains around 24% of your daily requirement.
