- Where does magnesium come from?
Magnesium is a mineral, and historically we got it through our diets. Magnesium is found in many foods, such as dairy products, fish, meat, seafood, apples, apricots, avocados, bananas, and blackstrap molasses, but because of lifestyle and environmental factors, many of us are deficient in this mineral. Various studies report that anywhere from 57 to 70 percent of the US population may be deficient in magnesium.
