A study published in The Journal of Intensive Care Medicine concludes that magnesium is critical to long life and good health.
Magnesium deficiency triggers such conditions as: anxiety, diabetes, heart disease, and migraines.
Some experts say [over] half of Americans are deficient in this nutrient and don’t know it.
Benefits of Magnesium
It is responsible for over 300 enzyme reactions and is present in all bodily tissues. It’s a critical component in bones, muscle and brain. And your cells need it to make energy, stabilize membranes, and help muscles relax.
It can fight depression, fatigue, and even kidney disease. And it’s critical to many essential bodily functions. It has important relationships to heart health. It helps dilate blood vessels, prevents spasms in the heart muscle and blood vessel walls, fights the action of calcium, which increases spasms, helps dissolve blood clots, acts as an antioxidant against free radical formation.
Sources of Magnesium
Good sources include almonds, cashews, walnuts, shrimp, green drinks, and leafy green vegetables.
I do suggest taking a supplement. While the recommended daily amount is about 300 mg a day, most of us get less than 200 mg. Most people could benefit from as much as 400 to 1,000 mg a day.
Another good option is taking Epsom salts. Taking a hot bath in Espom salts (magnesium sulfate) helps reduce stress and allows easy absorption of magnesium.
Magnesium citrate, glycinate taurate, and aspartate are the most easy to absorb. Caution against magnesium carbonate, sulfate, gluconate, and oxide because they are more difficult to absorb.
I you have diabetes, heart disease, or migraines, I also recommend taking the UltraInflamX 360 shakes. These provide magesium and other natural ingredients to decrease inflammation.
