An Australian dietitian has revealed the importance of magnesium, the key role it plays in the body and how much you need every day.

Susie Burrell, from Sydney, said magnesium is a mineral found in the muscles, bone and blood and is involved in more than 600 cellular reactions, such as energy and protein metabolism.

The nutrient also assists with muscle recovery and relaxation, so active individuals should aim to consume magnesium-rich foods in order for the body to recover faster.

To increase magnesium levels, the mum-of-two highly recommends eating bananas, oily fish, wholegrain granola with nuts, salmon and avocado.
