Are You Taking Magnesium Every Day?
Magnesium is a mineral that’s crucial to the body’s function.
Magnesium is one of the most underutilized and effective minerals ( food nutrients and supplements) available. The majority of people, at least 80%, are deficient in this mineral. Magneisum is perhaps the most important mineral when it comes to overall well being. Magnesium is involved in over 300 critical bodily functions, yet so many are lacking in this miracle mineral.
Magnesium is Involved in 300 Reactions n Our Body
Here are just a few benefits of what magnesium does for us:
- dna synthesis
- muscle contractions
- blood pressure regulation
- protein synthesis
- insulin metabolism
- nerve transmission
Signs of Magnesium Deficency:
- hearing loss
- mood changes
- irregular heartbeat
- high blood pressure
- high blood glucose
- mitral valve prolapse
- muscle cramps/spasms
Magnesium is essentially a critical mineral for our health and can impact so much including heart disease, diabetes, attention ( deficiency is associated with ADHD), mood, PMS, headaches, achy/twitchy legs and muscles, insomnia, constipation, Raynaud’s syndrome, bone strength, dental health and cavities, nutrient deficiencies, glaucoma, behavioral disorders, hypertension and more.
Magnesium Impacts Insomnia / Sleep
This likely is a result of magnesium’s impact on the nervous system and our mood and anxiety/stress. One study foud that those who took magnesium over a 2 month treatment course slept longer and even fell asleep quicker. Those who took Mg had higher levels of melatonin and lower levels of cortisol in thier system. If you struggle with insomnia, this may help or be a good consideration.
Magnesium Relaxes the Mind and Body
Our body uses magnesium via our nervous system and stress can deplete magnesium. Adrenlanine rushes and chronic stress = magnesium depletion ( and the consequential symptoms). While many turn to anxiety medications, magnesium may be all they need. In general, it is a very soothing mineral.
Magnesium Supports a Positive Mood
Magnesium supports seratonin production, which is critical for our mood and well being. Magnesium supports GABA function, which is critical for seratonin- our hormone that helps our brain and our nervous system have healthy communication. It also has many roles even beyond mood/happiness including overall behavior, sleep, sexual behavior, and hunger.
Magnesium Helps with Heart Health
Magnesium is involved in the biochemical reactions of our heart. Our heart is a muscle and uses magnesium and calcium to contract and relax. Magnesium is also involved in sodium/potassium pump. One sign of magnesium deficiency is heart palpitations. Additionally, heart palpitations can result from stress/anxiety.
