8 Symptoms Of Magnesium Deficiency

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
  • Nuts⁠
  • Seeds⁠
  • Avocados⁠
  • Sprouted beans⁠
  • 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! 🙏⁠
