Magnesium Deficiency and it’s consequences to you.
Your body is made up of trillions of cells. Each one of these cells is responsible for charging complex systems that maintain homeostasis and keep you alive. Your cells depend on the fuel they need to function so that you can enjoy optimal health and longevity.
Unfortunately, our food sources have become contaminated by industrialized farming methods and over-processing, leaving our cells with inadequate fuel to function properly.
Topsoil depletion of one essential mineral in particular has instigated a sweeping deficiency—and consequent health crisis—across the globe. With soil depletion growing worse every year, and global health declining, it’s imperative to supplement with bioavailable vitamins and minerals to make up for nutrient-deficient foods.
It’s not only soil depletion that exacerbates magnesium deficiency. The Standard American Diet—notoriously high in sugar, salt, fat, and animal protein—accelerates magnesium loss. It takes 287 molecules of magnesium to break down just 1 molecule of glucose!
Magnesium Deficiency is at Epidemic Levels
Apart from water, oxygen, and food, magnesium may just be the most important element, which is why it’s been dubbed “The Master Mineral.”
Magnesium is an essential mineral responsible for carrying out over 300 vital biochemical reactions, including protein synthesis, energy production, bone formation, cell creation, activation of B vitamins, the function and relaxation of muscles, as well as the function of the heart, kidneys, adrenals, brain, and nervous systems.
Magnesium deficiency is subtle at first. It may start as leg cramps and muscle spasms, progress to loss of appetite with nausea and vomiting, and eventually escalate to personality changes, blurred vision, and irregular heart rhythms. Other symptoms of magnesium deficiency include:
– Numbness and tingling in the extremities
– Frequent bladder, skin, gum, and vaginal yeast infections
– Coronary spasms
– Muscle and joint pain
Balance your magnesium levels so that you can and begin to enjoy boosted energy levels, improved sleep, and prevent a dangerously common deficiency.
It’s easy to see how being deficient in magnesium could cause a host of health problems. Be sure to ask your doctor to include a Magnesium test with your annual blood work. If your test comes back low, ask your doctor about supplementing with liquid Magnesium Chloride up to 2 grams per day. I’m committed to your health and fitness.
Hope this helps,
