The truth about magnesium!

There have been many studies that shows that about 50 percent of the people in the United States and Europe get far less than the recommended amount of magnesium. It is important to know that magnesium levels in soil are lower than they used to be. Plus, the use of chemicals such as fluoride and chlorine in water make magnesium less available. In addition, daily use of sugar and caffeine also deplete magnesium supplies within the body. In addition, if you live a high-stress life, it is likely that you are magnesium deficient.

It is unfortunate that in your mainstream doctor’s office, it may be highly overlooked. So today I would like to tell you about this amazing magnesium, so you can feel more empowered after knowing this.

A magnesium deficiency can lead to a range of chronic health issues. Just to name a few: calcium deficiency, poor heart health, weakness, anxiety, and high blood pressure. You can also add type 2 diabetes, respiratory issues, fatigue, poor memory, and confusion to the list.

So here the top 7 health benefits of Magnesium

1. Blood sugar balance- Magnesium helps manage insulin levels in the body and can prevent blood sugar spikes and crashes from occurring. It also plays a large role in blood pressure control, preventing high blood pressure from occurring, especially when combined with enough potassium in the diet.

2. Depression- Magnesium is essential for proper brain function and mood regulation. Research indicates that without enough magnesium, you are more prone to depression.

3. Anxiety- No one likes being anxious. If you find you are frequently in this state, you may want to try increasing your magnesium. Low magnesium levels have been attributed to an increase in anxiety. According to research, a diet low in magnesium changes the types of bacteria present in the gut and alters anxiety-based behavior.

4. Heart Health- Studies indicate that even having a slightly reduced level of magnesium can cause severe changes in how the heart, blood vessels, blood cells and other tissues function. Magnesium is critical for proper electrical and mechanical functioning within tissues such as nerves and muscles (such as the heart), and blood vessels.

5. Migraines- Research has shown that low brain magnesium is evident during a migraine attack. Many Studies have found that a regular intake of magnesium reduced the frequency of migraine attacks by just over 41 percent. They also found that taking a magnesium supplement daily can help prevent menstrual-related migraines.

6. PMS- magnesium could be the answer to a host of premenstrual symptoms. These include such things as mood swings, fluid retention, depression, breast tenderness, headaches, poor sleep and sugar cravings.

7. Brain power- Magnesium is essential for the proper functioning of many tissues in the body, including the brain and, in an earlier study, it was demonstrated that magnesium promoted synaptic plasticity in cultured brain cells.

Here are some few signs that you might be magnesium deficient:

Anxiety, Depression, Muscle cramps, High blood pressure, Hormone problems, Sleep issues, Low energy, Low vitamin D, Low vitamin K.

Ok now that I know I may have magnesium deficiency, what do I do?

1. You would want to increase your consumption of foods high in magnesium such as spinach, seeds, cocoa and cacao, almonds, bananas.

2. Eating just food might not be enough so you might need to add magnesium supplements. Magnesium come in different forms so having the right one is very necessary depending on your symptoms.

There are 7 types that are known to be beneficial.

Magnesium Chelate

Magnesium citrate

Magnesium Bisglycinate

Magnesium Malate

Magnesium Aspartate

Magnesium Taurate.

You want to avoid Magnesium oxide- not very much absorbable in the body.

Taking any of the 7 types above will be beneficial, sometimes they are all combined. I highly recommend seeking the assistance of a health care provider like me to guide you on the right one you should be taking so you can get better outcomes. Because when you know better, you do better.
