Are You Magnesium Deficient?

Updated: Nov 18, 2018



A topic that I think many of us, especially women, needs to discuss is magnesium deficiency. The biggest reason for this is that more than 75% of Americans don鈥檛 even come close to meeting the daily requirement for magnesium. So many of us are walking around with some sort of magnesium deficiency, and we probably don鈥檛 even know it.


What makes magnesium deficiency even harder to pinpoint is the fact that you usually don鈥檛 learn about it until your magnesium levels are severely low. And the symptoms of magnesium deficiency are pretty general, and often look like a symptom for something else.


But, never fear! I鈥檓 always here to help!


I鈥檝e got some great info on magnesium deficiency that I think you鈥檒l really enjoy AND learn from!


Oh, and I鈥檒l also tell you how you can get more magnesium into your body, if need be.


Remember, this is a guide to help you with general health and wellness issues and topics. Please seek professional medical advice (I鈥檓 good, but I鈥檓 not a doctor), if you believe you have a magnesium deficiency or any other condition that requires medical attention.





THE SYMPTOMS OF MAGNESIUM DEFICIENCY

Unfortunately, the symptoms of magnesium deficiency mirror the symptoms for several other conditions, so it鈥檚 not always easy to tell if you have this condition.

Some symptoms of magnesium deficiency can include:


1. Tiredness, fatigue or muscle weakness

2. Muscle cramps or twitches

3. Abnormal heart rhythms or palpitations

4. Tremors

5. Migraines

6. Depression or anxiety

7. High Blood Pressure


See what I mean? Each of these symptoms could be (and may be) attributed to another condition.


The good news is this: you can find out if you have magnesium deficiency by having your doctor perform a simple blood test. This is the most accurate way to confirm your condition.


SO, WHY DO WE NEED MAGNESIUM ANYWAY?

For such an unknown nutrient, magnesium sure handles a lot of functions within the body.


It鈥檚 involved in energy creation, protein formation, gene maintenance, muscle movements and nervous system regulation鈥攋ust to name a few things.


But wait鈥here鈥檚 more! Magnesium also helps with:


1. Boosting exercise performance

2. Lowering blood pressure

3. Fighting depression

4. Inflammation

5. Preventing migraines

6. Improving PMS symptoms (!)

7. Relieving constipation (!!)

8. Morning sickness symptoms (!!!)


WHAT ARE SOME GOOD SOURCES OF MAGNESIUM?

Luckily, there are a BUNCH of foods that we eat every day that are excellent sources of magnesium.

路 Leafy greens

路 Soybeans

路 Nuts and Seeds

路 Fruits

路 Spinach

路 Black beans

路 Avocado

路 Eggs

路 Dark chocolate

路 Popcorn

路 Salmon

But let鈥檚 be honest, we鈥檙e probably not eating enough of them (except for the dark chocolate), so the next section provides some much-needed info on how to add magnesium as a dietary supplement.


MAGNESIUM THROUGH DIETARY SUPPLEMENTS

I know what you鈥檙e thinking鈥ou鈥檙e wondering how much magnesium you鈥檙e even supposed to be getting, right?

Well, never fear! I have a handy chart for you to look at right here!



This is the Recommended Daily Allowance of magnesium for each age group, gender, and stage of life.


WHAT鈥橲 THE BEST MAGNESIUM SUPPLEMENT AVAILABLE?

It would be unfair for me to say I know which one the best is (because I haven鈥檛 tried them all鈥), but I do have a couple that I like. The first is one that was recommended to me by another friend in the health and wellness industry. I checked it out, and it鈥檚 getting great ratings on every site on which it鈥檚 available. You can check it out here (be sure to let me know what you think, if you try it, because I LOVE honest feedback!) The second supplement is one that I have been taking for nearly 2 years. It鈥檚 helped me deal with occasional constipation, improved my energy levels, and my mood. It鈥檚 all that AND a bag of chips, LOL. If you want more info, drop me a quick message and I鈥檒l get that to you ASAP!
