Studies indicate that about 75% of Americans don’t meet the recommended daily allowance (RDA) for magnesium, yet it’s absolutely essential for over 300 biochemical reactions in our body (helping your brain, nerves, heart, eyes, immune system, and muscles to function).

Not getting enough magnesium has been attributed to symptoms like migraines, sugar cravings and insulin resistance, trouble sleeping, anxiety, and more.

Lucky for us, nuts and seeds are not only delicious but some of the highest magnesium foods on the planet! I especially love hazelnuts as they provide 11 percent of your RDA for magnesium. Oh and BONUS ALERT: they’re also rich in vitamin B6, which helps to keep our nervous system healthy.
