Magnesium – A Key to Good Health

May 2020 Blog

Recently rediscovered as an overlooked key to good health, Magnesium plays a vital role in providing protection from illness and disease. It is an important component within our cells which helps our bodies maintain balance, avoid illness, perform well under stress, and maintain a general good state of health.

Magnesium is also known to reduce muscle tension, lessen pain associated with migraine headaches, improve sleep, and address neurological disorders such as anxiety and depression. Low magnesium intake has been linked to risk factors for Osteoporosis, High Blood Pressure, Issues of the Heart, Diabetes and Asthma.

It is estimated that 75% of Americans’ diets are deficient in magnesium. The U.S. Department of Health has recognized Magnesium as nutrient of concern. Symptoms of magnesium deficiency often include muscle cramps or tremors, irregular heartbeat, fatigue, confusion, and irritability. 

Taking Magnesium as a daily supplement is a safe and effective way for most of us to ensure that we are getting enough to stay healthy and avoid illness. Anyone who suspects they are deficient in Magnesium should consult a health practitioner for advice before embarking on a daily regime.
