Are you Magnesium Deficient?

Healing Vibes

According to a recent study, only about 30% of adults actually get the recommended intake of Magnesium.  That's a really low percentage!  Magnesium is responsible for hundreds of reactions in our body that happen every day.  Without enough Magnesium, what are we doing to our bodies?  It is such an important mineral to be consuming the right amount of. Here are some things that Magnesium is crucial for in our bodies:

  • Nerve Transmission
  • Muscle Contraction
  • Blood Coagulation
  • Energy Production
  • Metabolism
  • Bone Formation
  • Cell Formation

Don't Ignore the Signs: So many people don't realize that many of their unwanted health symptoms could be due to being deficient in Magnesium.  Here are some common signs:

Besides taking a Magnesium supplement, make sure you are getting enough edible forms of this mineral.  

Here are some foods rich in Magnesium:

  • Dark leafy greens like spinach and kale
  • Fish
  • Nuts and seeds
  • Avocados
  • Yogurt
  • Bananas

If you are interested in a Magnesium supplement, I have a great one to reccomend.  It is called "Calm", and is offered at many of the health food stores like Sprouts, and Whole Foods.  It's important to start your dose low, and work up to the full dose.  If you notice that your stool begins to become loose (like diarrhea), then it's important to back off on the dose.  This is a good sign to figure out exactly how much to take.
