Magnesium plays a critical role in a number of body systems and functions, including promoting muscle, bone, and nerve function, boosting the immune system, supporting energy production, and helping to control inflammation, blood sugar, and even certain cancers and heart disease. Given the importance of this essential mineral, it’s a good idea to be sure you’re getting enough magnesium in your diet. While supplements are available for those people who need them, here are some foods that serve as great sources of magnesium.

    Would you please elaborate on why low or no fat yogurts are a good choice? In order to absorb calcium you need vitamin D, which is fat-soluble. Without dietary fat, vitamin D will not be absorbed by your body. That kind of defeats the purpose of eating yogurt.
    What’s more, full fat yogurt will keep you satieted for a longer period of time and it will not raise your blood sugar, therefore dietary fat will be used as fuel, it will not get stored in your fat cells.
