Magnesium to Reduce Risk of Disease

Video by Dr. Erik Waldeland

Green smoothies are a quick and easy way to ensure you get your daily intake of fruits and vegetables for optimal recovery and overall health. That’s why I make them every week for my Chiropractic patients in St. Louis Park. This delicious green smoothie recipe is packed with nutrient-rich ingredients like spinach, avocado, and banana. According to a study published in the journal Nutrients, magnesium plays a crucial role in decreasing the risk of chronic diseases and improving muscle function. Incorporating magnesium-rich foods like spinach into your diet through green smoothies can help support overall wellness and recovery. Try this recipe today for a tasty way to boost your nutrient intake!

When it comes to how we approach back pain, our St. Louis Park clinics always address the foods and nutrients that our patients consume for this exact reason.  We need to ensure the body has the ability to heal from the inside out, because this is important for not only getting rid of back pain but staying out of pain.  Give the recipe below a try and let us know how it is!
