Are You Magnesium Deficient?

Are You Magnesium Deficient?

Magnesium is the “mama” mineral, or “mom-nesium.” Just like our mother making sure everything gets done and at the right place, without magnesium nothing will work correctly. Magnesium doesn’t get the credit it deserves in the world of nutritional medicine. The proper functioning of calcium, iron, zinc, and copper all depend on magnesium doing its job.

Why you need magnesium:

  • To support the energy cycles
  • To help your muscles move fluidly and your nerves function
  • To enhance sleep by increasing melatonin production
  • To improve the release of your brain chemicals
  • To stabilize blood sugar
  • To support the production of DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone), an adrenal steroid hormone that helps with energy stability

If your magnesium levels are depleted, your symptoms will include:

  • Fatigue
  • Muscle tension
  • Agitation
  • Poor and light sleep with early-morning waking
  • Poor concentration and memory, and fuzzy and agitated brain function.
Your body is not good at holding on to magnesium, and stress will cause you to excrete more of it in your urine.
