9 Reasons You Should Take Magnesium & Magnesium-Rich Foods
Magnesium has many functions in the body including:
Assisting in carbohydrate metabolism
Assisting in fat metabolism
DNA and protein synthesis
Activating transport of ions across cell membranes
Phosphorylation of second messengers
Cell migration and wound healing.
Magnesium can be found in several foods including:
Yogurt or Kefir - certified organic and grass fed
Green Leafy Vegetables (like SPINACH and CHARD)
Dark Chocolate (70%+ Pure Dark Chocolate- NOT Milk Chocolate
Note: Magnesium deficiency is very rare due to the abundance of magnesium in foods. High intakes of zinc, fibre, and protein can decrease magnesium absorption, putting individuals at risk for deficiency. In addition, those with gastrointestinal disorders, kidney disorders, and alcoholism are at risk.
Common symptoms of magnesium excess/toxicity include:
Loose stools and/or diarrhea.
However, your individual response could be different. If you suspect a health problem or an excess of certain nutrients, please see your primary health care provider (doctor, naturopath, etc). They can help unravel the complexity of your physiology.
If you are looking for a supplement, I highly recommend Magnesium (Glycinate) by Pure Encapsulations.
I take 3-4 capsules every night and it has helped me a lot. I definetely notice a difference when I am very active. When I take it daily, I never have muscle cramps, I feel energized and my bowel movement is great. TMI, but we are family!
Consciously ADD MAGNESIUM to your Lifestyle.
I highly encourage you to do it with whole foods. But if you are extremely active, or if you have any health problems that were mentioned in the video above, I would highly encourage you to supplement on Magnesium!
Happy Healthy Living!
