Magnesium Benefits

Do you feel continually fatigued, stressed, or anxious? Do you regularly experience restlessness and muscle twitches, but fail to recover quickly after physical exertion? Magnesium deficiency may be a contributing factor.

My favorite mineral is Magnesium (Mg). Studies indicate many people exhibit Mg deficiency, which can arise from various sources like low dietary intake, nutrient-depleted soils, excessive caffeine consumption, and high stress levels.

Magnesium plays a pivotal role in over 350 metabolic reactions of the human body, making it essential for optimal health.

It contributes to bone mineral density, cardiovascular health, glucose metabolism, and muscle contraction; it also helps to balance electrolytes and produce energy effectively. Furthermore, it has been studied for its potential to reduce tension headaches and migraines.

Ladies, it is widely recognized that magnesium deficiency may strongly affect symptoms associated with PMS and PMDD. It has also been found to be an influential mineral in providing insulin sensitivity for those with PCOS.

This chill pill can drastically enhance sleep, soothe the nervous system (reducing stress and worry), and balance the HPA axis (related to hormones and the nervous system).

There are several types of magnesium available as dietary supplements, such as magnesium citrate; this form is highly absorbable, but can lead to frequent restroom visits. For best results, it is advisable to consult with a health professional who can provide personalized advice.

Does your diet feature magnesium-containing dark leafy greens/veg like silverbeet, spinach, kale, broccoli, and artichoke? Are you including raw cacao, dark chocolate at least 70% cocoa, or cacao nibs? How about avocado, fig, and banana as well as pepitas, sesame seeds, cashews, almonds, and Brazil nuts? Wild-caught fatty fish like salmon, mackerel, and halibut and legumes and dried seaweed are also excellent sources of magnesium.
