Magnesium is so important that having a severe magnesium deficiency can be linked to Hormone imbalance like PMS, Fibromyalgia, heart attack, type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis, constipation, tension or migraine, anxiety , depression, or chronic fatigue.

No worries because in today's blog I am going to give you 10 foods packed with this awesome vitamin.
