Magnesium intake is one of the most important factors for diabetes prevention and management and is an essential mineral required by the body for maintaining normal muscle and nerve function, keeping a healthy immune system, and building strong bones. Deficiencies can lead to muscle spasms, heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, anxiety, migraines, and osteoporosis.

Here’s a list of magnesium rich foods: Bran (rice, wheat, and oat), seeds (squash, pumpkin, and watermelon), cacao (dark chocolate), sesame seeds, flax seeds, brazil nuts, sunflower seeds, almonds, pine nuts, and molasses.
