Do any of these symptoms affect you? Are you under a lot of stress? If the answer is yes, chances are you’re depleted in magnesium. In fact, it’s estimated that 80% of the U.S. population is deficient in this incredibly important mineral.
Magnesium works in partnership with calcium. Calcium contracts muscles and magnesium (Mg) relaxes them – that’s why it’s known as nature’s tranquiliser and can help in the following ways:
Relaxes blood vessels, lowering blood pressure and relieving migraines.
Relaxes muscles to reduce cramps and pain (e.g. leg cramps and headaches). In the heart, this helps regulate heartbeat – avoiding palpitations.
Helps your body and mind relax, helping anxiety and sleep. It is an important nutrient for producing GABA, the calm chemical in our brains!
Other important functions of Mg:
Improving magnesium stores in the bones can reduce the risk of osteoporosis.
Mg helps us make the energy molecule ATP – responsible for energy in every one of our cells. People suffering from chronic fatigue are often treated with Mg injections.
How to help:
Buy organic to ensure higher levels of minerals in food, sadly standard intensive farming practices deplete the soil.
Improve your absorption of magnesium by supporting gut health with foods rich in probiotics – kefir, sauerkraut, kimchi. Reduce foods that irritate the gut like wheat, dairy and soy.
Eat more Mg foods:
Leafy greens - spinach, broccoli, kale, and add 1-2 servings of Organic Burst Wheatgrass to your daily routine
High quality dark chocolate
Take a bath in natural Epsom salts - they contain a variety of minerals including magnesium, perfect for relaxing after a tough day! 🙏
