Did you know Pitaya is a good source of both Fiber and Magnesium? It's a fun fact we like to throw around because both play very important roles in your body. So let’s dive a little deeper and learn why these two should be an essential part of your everyday diet.
Fiber plays a vital role in maintaining a healthy digestive system. It helps your body in absorbing water and minerals while disposing of waste your body doesn't need. To really geek out, Fiber aids in creating prebiotics (new microorganisms) that help many different functions in the digestive system.
These prebiotics help keep us healthy in many different ways. The most well known are: regulation of blood sugar, decreased risk of diabetes and heart disease, weight management by suppressing appetite, and helps lower cholesterol. All in all, your digestive system needs fiber to function properly, so make sure you're getting your daily amount every day.

Magnesium is an essential mineral that is responsible for over 300 enzymatic reactions in the human body. The USDA has found that over 50% of adults in the U.S. are getting less than their daily requirement of magnesium from food sources due to the consumption of processed foods.
Once called the ultimate relaxation mineral, Magnesium is needed for the proper function of neurotransmitters in the brain that allow us to transition into a restful state to calm our mind and body. It regulates many biochemical reactions in the body and is deeply involved in energy production, oxygen uptake, central nervous system function, glucose metabolism, muscle activity, and is vitally important to the electrolyte balance of cells. Yea... Magnesium isn't messing around, so get your full intake every day.

Fiber and Magnesium are just two out of many nutrients your body needs for a well-balanced diet. But just focusing on these two, the FDA's recommended daily value for everyone should be 25g of Fiber and 400mg of Magnesium everyday.
