Is Magnesium the Third Piece to Vitamin D and Calcium Absorption?

Expanding on last weeks article about Vitamin D and Calcium absorption, Magnesium could be the third piece to the puzzle.

Magnesium has so many functions in the body and when it interacts with certain vitamins it can really increase their benefits. Vitamin D is one of them.

How Magnesium Helps:

 

  • Magnesium is essential for the metabolism of vitamin D.
  • Magnesium influences the body’s utilization of vitamin D by activating cellular enzyme activity.
  • Enzymes are protein molecules that stimulate every chemical reaction in the body. All the enzymes that metabolize vitamin D require magnesium.
  • Magnesium has a possible role in vitamin D’s effect on the immune system.

 Magnesium Rich Foods:

Avocados, seeds, almonds, cashews, black beans, bananas, spinach, oats, and dark chocolate. These foods should always be consumed in moderation, well mostly the dark chocolate 😉 (keep it to 1 ounce to get the magnesium benefits)

Add in some of these magnesium dense foods in your meals or as snacks and improve your nutrient absorption!
