Magnesium: The mineral that makes your life better

Everyone needs magnesium Today, our soils are so depleted of this important mineral that getting it in our diet can be a challenge Estimates show that 70% of the North American population are deficient The result? Many health problems

The human body contains about 25g of magnesium You store most of it in your skeletal system (muscles) but it's also found in soft tissues and bodily fluids Being one of the most used minerals in your body means you have to make sure your levels are always optimal

Magnesium is critical for: Proper hydration Muscle & Nerve function (contractions, heart rhythm) Blood sugar control (helps insulin) Neurotransmitter balance (🔻glutamate, 🔺serotonin) Energy production Bone structure development Synthesis of DNA/RNA/glutathione

Magnesium clearly has a vital role in keeping you healthy Yet so many of you have yet to jump on the bandwagon So how can you really know whether you're missing any? Red blood cell Magnesium test It should be part of the yearly check-up requirement for everyone

Signs of magnesium deficiency Muscle cramps/twitches Insomnia Anxiety Migraines Diabetes Obesity High blood pressure Constipation Reflux Menstrual cramps Asthma Osteoporosis Irritable bowel syndrome Chronic Fatigue ADD Palpitations Just to name a few

You may be wondering why so many people are so deficient Other than the soil being depleted of magnesium as I mentioned earlier, it all comes down to lifestyle Diet and medications can bleed you dry of your reserves

Main culprits of magnesium depletion include: Excessive alcohol intake Salt Coffee Soda High calcium diets High stress Sugar Many pharmaceutical drugs affect you as well Antacids Antibiotics Conjugated/bioidentical estrogens (i.e birth control) Corticosteroids Diuretics

Supplementation is the way to keep magnesium levels high in our modern age Not all supplements are created equal, however Many supplement forms exist but not all of them are absorbed effectively This means you really need to choose the right product for best results

Minerals can be absorbed by 2 ways in your gut Passive diffusion = slow, less efficient Active transport = fast, more absorption Minerals that aren't pulled into your system will actually bring water into your intestines This brings about the famous Magnesium bowel flush

Magnesium salts work with passive diffusion, which causes a laxative effect: Magnesium oxide Magnesium citrate Magnesium hydroxide Magnesium chelates, on the other hand, use active transport: Magnesium Glycinate Magnesium Threonate Chelates are the way to go

A chelate is simply a mineral wrapped with amino acids Your body is tricked into believing its absorbing the building blocks for proteins, which it desperately needs at all times The more you intake, the better your results It's that simple

Magnesium Chloride spray or oil can be put on the skin the help replenish your levels Just like magnesium sulfate Better known as Epsom salts Transdermal intake is something definitely worth exploring

When you're choosing a magnesium supplement What matters is the elemental magnesium intake you are getting Lots of products out there with inaccurate dosages on the bottle Good companies will tell you on the bottle

A good starter dose would be 400-600mg daily This will have to change depending on many factors Go slow if you want to avoid a bowel flush Take with food preferably too

Getting magnesium from food alone just won't cut it in this hyper-stressed/toxic world we live in Your liver guzzles magnesium to filter all the junk out of your body Best food sources would be: Nuts Cacao Avocados Fatty Fish
