Warning Signs That Your Magnesium Levels Are Low

Magnesium is one of the minerals that your body needs the most, but, unfortunately, most of us are magnesium deficient. The human body usually contains 1 to 2 ounces of magnesium, mainly found in the bones and teeth, with smaller concentrations also in the brain, heart, and blood.

In fact, every single cell in the body needs magnesium to function properly, and it’s responsible for over 300 metabolic functions in the body. It’s clear that this element is vital for your health, but according to USDA, approximately a half of the Americans consume inadequate amount in their diet.

Why is this so?

These days we all lead a fast lifestyle, so our body uses up our supply to deal with stress. It magnesiummeans that we use more magnesium than we take – and we should be taking 500 to 1000 mg daily.

The list of symptoms of magnesium deficiency includes leg cramps, insomnia, chronic fatigue, blood clots, facial twitches, anxiety, migraines, depression, heart disease, unstable blood sugar levels, and osteoporosis. It may even help even in cases of Alzheimer’s because of its ability to improve the oxygen intake in the brain, and in cases of Parkinson’s tremors after studies showed lowered levels of magnesium in the brains of these patients.

Additionally, magnesium deficiency is also associated with chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome. Having a deficiency of magnesium causes the body to overproduce insulin and then that extra glucose goes into the cells, causing inflammation.

Magnesium for your body and mind

Rich dietary sources of magnesium are leafy green vegetables (such as spinach and kale), avocados, dark chocolate, whole grains, fish, nuts and seeds (chia seeds, sunflower seeds, flax seeds, pumpkin seeds, etc.

Also, you can take a high-quality supplement, and if you’re using one, make sure to have the magnesium co-factors Glycinate, Malate, Orotate, and Taurinate, as they are more effectively absorbed in the body and support organ systems and bodily functions better than any other magnesium form.

Here’s what the powerhouse four do for you:

1. Magnesium Glycinate for the mind

– Controls anxiety, irritability, insomnia, concentration and hysteria

– Minimizes laxative effects and is the least likely form to induce diarrhea

– Corrects long-term deficiencies

– Reduces numbness and depression

– Increases mental calmness and relaxation

2. Magnesium Malate for the muscles

– Treats fibromyalgia

– Calms muscle fatigue

– Manages PMS and headaches

– Supports digestion if taken with meals

– Increases energy production

3. Magnesium Orotate for the body

– Enhances athletic performance

– Aids DNA formation and heart repair and function Magnesium Taurinate for the heart

4. Magnesium Taurinate for the heart

– Supports healthy heart function

– Prevents migraines

– Suppresses heart palpitations and arrhythmias

Besides taking magnesium supplements, it is also extremely crucial the magnesium supplement contain vitamin B6, as vitamin B6 determines how much magnesium will be absorbed by the cells in the first place.

May magnesium bring you a peaceful mind, a happy heart, a strong body, and a tranquil night’s sleep.
