Keep your mind sharp with magnesium. Research shows that this mineral helps regulate a key brain receptor that plays an important role in learning and memory. Experts believe that magnesium deficiency may result in reduced ability to learn and memorise things, while cognitive function may be improved by an abundance of magnesium.

Take action: Include at least one portion of a magnesium-rich food, such as green, leafy vegetables or beans in your diet every day. Make sure that you also include calcium-rich foods, such as milk, yoghurt or cheese, in your diet – or else the magnesium won't be absorbed.
