As a woman, if you crave chocolate before your period (Yum!) this can signify you are magnesium deficient. I would love to recommend that you carry on eating chocolate all month round to help with this.
However, even though dark chocolate does contain a good amount of magnesium, its absorption orally is not great.
Magnesium is much better absorbed through the skin. ‘Betteryou’ do a topical spray which you can massage into your calves just before you sleep. Epsom salt footbaths, 2-3 x a week are also good. Dissolve 250g Epsom salt/ tubful of water, and soak your feet for 30 mins. The water will keep for a few days. A fairly easy and low cost way to get your magnesium intake and relax, whilst ticking your ‘self-care’ box.
