Magnesium is an essential mineral for staying healthy and is required for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body. Magnesium is essential to bones and fuels the “electrical” system of your body including nerves, muscles and cardiovascular needs. Magnesium aids in body temperature regulation, detoxification and energy production
Without adequate amounts, you may experience some of these symptoms
Muscles cramps and twitches
Restless leg syndrome
High Blood Pressure
An increase in Magnesium may alleviate the above symptoms.
Magnesium can relieve constipation naturally, calm the stomach, boost energy levels, improve blood pressure and cholesterol, aid anxiety, ease muscle spasms (including menstrual cramps), stop migraines, strengthen bones and reduce PMS.
Found in lentils, spinach, pumpkin seeds, avocados, almonds, bananas, cacao and a whole host of plant based food, magnesium optimizes the oxygen in our bodies and enhances our metabolism, boosting overall body balance.
Even if you’re eating magnesium rich foods, we only average about a 30% absorption rate. If your body is deficient of this essential mineral, implementing a quality magnesium supplement routine will naturally increase your magnesium supply.
Many people who begin supplementing with magnesium, while making positive changes to their diet start to feel better almost immediately. Pop into Mountain Health to chat about how Magnesium can help with your symptoms.
