You can also compensate for a magnesium deficiency by using a supplement.

Magnesium taurate met l-taurine, works mainly on improving the state of mind, the brain and the nervous system. Magnesium malate mainly works on improving fatigue and reduced muscle function. A citrate compound is also a good one to use.
