What Is It and What Is It For?
I wanted to take some time to talk about something that’s become very important around our house lately….
Magnesium is an actual element. It bonds with other things to make a wide variety of substances and other minerals.
Magnesium is also the second most abundant element in the human body and the fourth most abundant positively charged ion in the human body! It literally serves in hundreds of functions vital to our health (and life).
This mineral is essential to helping our body function at its highest level!
Just a few things our body needs Magnesium for:
- Protein Synthesis
- Nerve Function
- Blood Sugar Control
- Neurotransmitter Release
- Blood Pressure Regulation
- Energy Metabolism
- Production of the Antioxidant Glutathione
Because our bodies use Magnesium for so many things, it is very easy for us to become magnesium deficient…especially if we’re not eating enough high magnesium foods!
Possible Symptoms of Magnesium Deficiency
You want to be very careful to maintain healthy Magnesium levels. Not doing so can lead to some pretty serious issues.
- Hormone Imbalace and PMS
- Heart Attack
- Type 2 Diabetes
- Tension or Migrane Headaches
- Anxiety and Depression
- Chronic Fatigue
The problem is that blood tests often do not indicate you are low in magnesium. This is because, as one of the essential electrolytes in the blood, your body will pull it from other tissues just to keep the blood’s levels as normal as possible.
Because of this it is vitally important to eat plenty of foods that are naturally rich in Magnesium!
Best Way To Make Sure Your Levels Are Up
The best way you can be sure is and keep your magnesium levels up is by consuming plenty of natural, whole foods that are rich in Magnesium!
Some foods that are super high in Magnesium are:
- Dark Chocolate (Thats Right!!!!!)
Since chocolate is one of the best forms of magnesium, eating any of our MG bars containing Dark Chocolate can help keep your magnesium levels up.
Many people still need to supplement their magnesium and a fantastic way to do that is by using a quality Topical Magnesium Oil!
