Feelings of anxiety, weakness, and fatigue, and irritability are all symptoms of magnesium deficiency.

A lack of energy is a result of a decrease in red blood cells due to a lack of magnesium. Red blood cells are vital for energy because they carry oxygen to tissues throughout the body.

Dr. Oz made mention of supplements that supplements contain 100 mg of magnesium per daily dose while the recommended dosage of magnesium for men is 400 mg per day and 310 mg for women. Ingesting magnesium through certain foods may help maintain healthy levels. The body responds well to a steady supply of magnesium throughout the day.

Magnesium is found in a variety of foods however studies have shown that 68-75% of Americans are deficient in magnesium.

Dr Oz recommends at least 5 servings of any of these magnesium-rich foods throughout the day:
• ½ cup of boiled spinach
• ½ cup of quinoa
• 1 cup of brown rice
• 1 cup of kidney beans
• 1 cup of lentils
• 1 cup of raisin bran
• 1 cup of shredded wheat
• 1 cup of oatmeal
• 2 slices of whole wheat bread
• 2 bananas
