In today's video I'm going to talk about my favorite magnesium foods. There are lots of foods out there with magnesium but I like to look at the overall profile of the food before choosing to get my nutrients from it. I'm not a fan of PUFA rich foods.
Top 3 foods high in magnesium:
1. Potatoes: tuber that is so nutritionally dense that it can actually grow a plant and sustain that itself. They are also a great source of prebiotic fiber and starchy . carbs. 1 large potato contains about 85mg of magnesium
2. Avocados: 1 medium sized avocado contains about 40mg of magnesium. It is also a fruit that is rich in monounsaturated fats which are great for hormonal health.
3. Bananas: one banana contains about 35-45mg of magnesium. It's of of the magnesium rich fruits and it's also a great source of potassium.

The newest recommended amount of magnesium is 310-420 mg, per day. The older recommendation was based on assumptions that on closer examination were not exactly correct, (what they thought was absorbed). Turns out that all magnesium below a specific amont like 180mg is absorbed then a percentage of what is over 180mg is absorbed, they assumed 180mg as the RDA.
However, all animal products also have magnesium a small salmon fillet has 53 mg of magnesium, an egg 10 mg.
Are they really healthy though? When anyone says those foods are healthy, they are simply regergitating what they heard someone else say. There has never been a shred of actual proof surfaced that shows they are actually good for us. People need calories to live and there is nearly 0 calories in greens.
avacados, bananas and potatoes... did you watch the video? the problem with nuts is that you should probably only have a small handful of them a few times a week, to reap their benefits, but many people will over eat them, they are actually hard on the kidneys, if you are older and suffering from kidney function reduction... not sure the greens are really all that much of a problem, but I have heard there are pluses and minuses to eating a lot of raw spinach... my ND says not to be concerned with the problems people talk about with spinach, but other ND's say it is better to eat it cooked... at any rate, most people do not eat spinach and greens in all that large of amounts, so having some every day is probably not going to be some kind of problem for most people. He also shows pumkin seeds in the photo with nuts... I would argue that those are not nuts and in a class by themselves and if you are suffering from low magnesium, I would say those are good.... and are a good source of magnesium, plus seeds in general are good for controlling parasites... I can only assume pumpkin seeds are included, but I would look into it... and the reason I mention parasites is because they can diminish your nutrient uptake and most people have some level of some kind of parasite in their bodies... And he is right about how pre-biotic potatoes are, but it is the skin that is prebiotic... they did a study and potato skins fed the bodies natural existing food digesting bacteria in the gut better than fruits, and by a large margin... fruits and cabbage (not necessarily saurkraut) are considered to be good pre biotics... I typically recommend people eat fruit about 10 to 15 minutes before a meal, vs after a meal, for many reasons, but one reason is to feed the nutrient digesting bacteria (the probiotics) in your gut and the enzymes also help with proper digestion and uptake and so many other things... fruits are highly enzymatic, especially pineapples, plus pineapples can be cut and stored and the fruit does not turn into "bad" sugar after it has been cut like most other fruits, from what I have hear... but that does not mean this is correct info, I heard it on OKRaw channel who did a big presentation on pineapples, so I am going with that until some evidence presents itself otherwise ... you can take pro biotic supplements and enzyme supplements to get going, but even the best probiotics only offer a handful of typse of pro-biotics, while eating probiotic feeding (pre biotic) foods, will increase ALL the bacteria you need in your gut for proper nutrition uptake... and the potatoes also have the magnesium... but, I suspect most of the magnesium is in the skin... so eat the skins. Also, with enzyme supplements, you can become dependent on them, from what I understand... but, I really need to look into it... fresh fruits and vegetables are the best way to get what the body really needs... and even supplements should be used for a short time to boost some kind of imbalance, if you know you have one. It is not recommended to take magnesium supplements internally, but rather to apply topically with magnesium lotions, sprays or epsom salt baths... use A LOT of epsom salt in the water and soak for an hour as much as possible.
"Hass avocados, the most common commercial avocado cultivars in the world, contain a variety of essential nutrients and important phytochemicals. There are eight preliminary clinical studies showing that avocado consumption helps support cardiovascular health. Exploratory studies suggest that avocados may support weight management and healthy aging."
"Avocados also have a diverse range of other nutrients and phyto chemicals that may have beyond cholesterol vascular health benefits. In particular, avocado's potassium and lutein may help promote normal blood pressure and help to control oxidative/inflammatory stress, respectfully. The consumption of avocados with salads or salsa increases the bioavailability of carotenoids multi-fold, which may add to the potential health benefits."
Chill bro... and enjoy avocados on salads.
Hydroponic( Sterile soil setup) tubers are devoid of any magnesium coz they keep pumping them full of potassium and other useless nitrates. I have to supplement in calcium/magnesium anyway.
I eat 15 pounds of various tubers every week and im still deficient.
To hell with hydroponic made by cretins.
Not even the same family of plants.
Sweet potato is in the morning glory family
white potatoes are in the nightshade.
nightshade causes inflammation in some people. if you have arthritis or got, avoid white potatoes.
WatchingMyLifeFlashB he's not saying to eat the tales I've been sitting around, he is saying the potatoes have so much energy in them that they can Sprout as little as two to three days without any access water soil Etc.
quinoa is not really a carbohydrate/starchy type of food compared to those you mention, anyways, it is a seed and it is one of the few foods that is a complete protein... although, it is not necessarily, high in protein, it is just that it has all the amino acids, and fiber... it's a great filler and has a starchy food feel to it... and if Marty jr is right, the magnesium is a good thing... any food that is full of a nutrient, or is reasonably full of, that people tend to be low on, should be high priority for most people... iron, magnesium, vitamin C (easy to get really, but you need to get it in often), pre-biotic foods, are probably more important to worry about than how much protien one is getting and there are plenty of people who are overly consumed with how much protein they eat... yet, hardly anyone is deficient in protein... now THAT's hype... I am not necessarily a raw vegan all the way or anything like that... but, a lot of people who are raw vegan are always asked where their protein is coming from... but, what these people should really be asking themselves is where their magnesium and pre-biotic foods are coming from or how they are digesting protein and if they know how the body digests protein... and that's what I would say to people who question vegans about protien: Where are you getting your magnesium from? How are you feeding your gut flora? Where are you getting your protein digesting enzymes from?
Hey Chris did you happen to see Dr Eric Bergs new recent video on "is kale poison to your thyroid or an anti poison?" I think you should look into that because maybe you could refute him in another video here for us because now we're even more confused. Thanks. Also, can you do a video educating on what each fat is called what they are the benefits and what are the negative effects of each on. There's disinformation and just confusing. Because we have hydrogenated, polyunsaturated and saturated... etc... I can't even imagine to understand all. But maybe you can do a quick expose on the. why they're bad and what they're good for. Thanks!!
Try epsom baths, use A LOT of epsom salt, it's cheap and get some epsom lotion to use on days you do not take epsom salt baths... you are likely low in magnesium and if you have problems with certain foods, then this would be a great alternative for you... and even if you are not low on magnesium, this would not hurt you in any way... don't take magnesium or calcium supplements internally.... look it up, if you are ever considering this
my dad has only 45% kidney functioning, he is pushing 80, and you have to have just the right amount of potassium and protein... you cannot overdo it once you get to these low levels of kidney functioning... so I get you. My Dad is very low in magnesium too and is suffering the classic symptoms of low magnesium and the doctors are miffed at the hospital... I have heard a nurse, on YouTube, talk about how she was working with a patient in a hospital who was having classic symptoms of scurvy, of course the doctors could not figure it out... she pointed it out to them and they tried vitamin C intraveneously on the patient and it worked, but the doctors seemed to think she was crazy at first, and seemed to resent that she was right... sick motherfucking bastards... sorry for the cussing, but some people deserve to be labeled that way, IMO. The doctors in general are so programmed away from looking at nutritional deficiencies as the cause for a lot of problems and seem to be so miffed by problems that are caused by people eating poor diets as they try to find the best pharma product to control the problem and never once consider testing for such things... they do tend to test for iron regularly, but most nutrients, no concern.
Cramping is a symptom of magnesium deficiency. Natremia is not only about sodium chlorate levels, its about all mineral salts economy.
Natremia cant be correct if magnesium/potassium ratio is not ok. Research epsom salt baths.
Me think your doctor is a cretin and possibly a fraudster.
I wish I could. Hyperkalemia means that I am way too good at sucking all the potassium out if foods. Too little potassium causes some cramps, but too much causes mind warping, super painful cramps in the middle of the night, like my leg muscles are trying to break bones from pretzeling up super tight. I know, it's a me thing. I wouldn't wish this on anyone.
"Them". is a little generalizing. It is not ALL fruits, just some. As in some diabetes eat correctly and some do not. ALL fruits do not have the same Glycemic Index . SOME adhere to that and SOME do not.
thats it. If ur slim u can get diabities due to genetic. but usually its if ur fat. your body can't process insulin as a person whos under 15% bodyfat. so big factor, keep slim and ur stomach tight and eat healthy.
My dad has diabetes. Actually 3rd generation. My great grandfather, grandfather and father were diabetic so I should probably be careful myself. But in my dads case he has just about eliminated all his symptoms of diabetes. He’s had it for maybe 20 years now. At first he was strictly Atkins mode. And taking maybe 20-30 medications daily. But over the years with healthy lifestyle and loosing half his body weight he eats pretty normal and no longer takes any medication. He even eats chocolate and ice cream regularly now. Not sure what’s changed? He lost about 200lbs of fat. Maybe that’s it? He went from being in and out of the hospital like a revolving door. Drs telling him he could die anytime from diabetes blood pressure heart attack etc... to now being fit and healthy and eating basically whatever he wants. So what I’m thinking is these videos are for educational purposes, use your own judgment or ask a Dr if you have certain medical conditions that you can’t eat certain things. And maybe with time if you health improves you can.
To say you can eat these foods without stating their glycemic index level can be possibly dangerous to a diabetic and to suggest you do not have to regulate or eliminate some is dangerous, as well. A person's health or life can be at stake by taking incorrect information.
