Are you Magnesium deficient?

Mar 28, 2019

 

Magnesium deficiencies are incredibly common. In fact, it’s estimated that up to 75% of people are deficient in magnesium (1). When you don’t get enough of this essential mineral, it can cause a wide range of unpleasant symptoms.

 

This is often not found because only 1 percent of magnesium is in the bloodstream, blood tests don’t detect deficiencies.

 

Magnesium is used in more than 300 biochemical processes in the body. This includes the heart, muscles, kidneys, digestion and hormone production.

 

Here are 7 common signs that you may need more magnesium…

1. High blood pressure

2. Muscle cramps and spasms

3. Chronic Insomnia

4. Headaches

5. Fragile bones

6. Constipation

7. Anxiety

 

Try to boost your diet with foods rich in Magnesium! Here are the top foods to help:

Spinach

Chard

Dark Chocolate

Pumpkin Seeds

Almonds

 

*Other sources include avocado, yogurt and bananas. When possible with any foods, choose organic since organic farming yields higher nutrient levels, and also avoids toxic pesticides.
