Magnesium is one of the most important minerals in the body, since it is involved in a large number of biochemical processes that are essential for proper metabolic functions.

Magnesium plays a role in more than 300 biochemical processes in the body. Increasing your daily intake of this mineral can lead to a variety of health benefits, including:

Stronger bones and teeth

Reduced aches and pains

Healthier cardiovascular system

Higher energy production

Lower blood sugar levels

Improved blood flow

Lower stress levels

Enhanced mitochondrial function

Improved sleep

Detoxification

 

Magnesium Deficiency

Unfortunately up to 80% of people may be deficient in magnesium, putting them at risk of health issues as:

 

 

Cardiovascular disease

Weakened immune system

Kidney and liver damage

Osteoporosis

Muscle cramps and weakness

Insulin resistance

 

 

 

Risk Factors of Magnesium Deficiency

A primary risk factor for magnesium deficiency is eating a processed food diet.

Magnesium is also lost through stress, lack of sleep, alcohol consumption, and some prescription drug use and tends to decline in the presence of elevated insulin levels.

 

Signs and Symptoms of Magnesium Deficiency

Early signs of magnesium deficiency include muscle spasm that occurs when you stretch your legs, headaches/migraines, loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting, fatigue or weakness. These are all warning signs indicating you probably need to boost your magnesium intake. More chronic magnesium deficiency can lead to far more serious symptoms such as abnormal heart rhythms and coronary spasms, seizures, numbness and tingling, and personality changes.

 

Get Your Daily Dose of Magnesium

It is importantto optimize your magnesium levels, to combat magnesium deficiency one should eating real, organic foods that come from healthy sources as spinach, broccoli, fatty fishes, fruits and others.

Since most of our soils have been depleted of minerals, there’s a chance that you may not meet the daily recommended intake of magnesium by just eating organic foods. So you may also consider using other sources of magnesium, such as supplements.
