I personally believe that a magnesium deficiency is one of largest health problems we face in our world today.
Not only is magnesium is responsible for over 300 biochemical reactions in the body (meaning that without magnesium, these reactions cannot occur), but low levels of this mineral have been linked to high blood pressure, clogged arteries, diabetes, heart disease and strokes.
Magnesium impacts our metabolism, blood pressure, immune function and even our body’s production of energy. You could say magnesium is kind of a big deal.
One of the best ways to evaluate your magnesium status is actually by becoming more in tune with your body and tracking your symptoms.
If you experience chronic migraines, fatigue/low energy, muscle spasms or cramps, anxiety, depression, high blood pressure, and/or insomnia – you likely can benefit from upping your magnesium intake.
How can you get more magnesium into your routine?
1. Consume one large green leafy salad each day and don’t forget to load it up with nuts/seeds to boost your magnesium intake!
2. Take an Epsom Salt Bath 3x weekly
3. Topical Magnesium Spray 1x nightly before bed
4. Consume less caffeine, alcohol and processed foods to avoid depleting your magnesium levels.
5. Enjoy a couple squares of dark chocolate (70% and above) each day!
