Magnesium — The Miracle Mineral.

Did you know at least 70% of the population is deficient in Magnesium? And the most significant reason may surprise you! Magnesium contains over 300 different biochemical reactions in the body, so its significance to our wellness is enormous! Magnesium is The Miracle Mineral … and now we are going to find out why. 

Stress is the #1 reason for Magnesium loss. 

Stress. We all experience it. And, if you’re like most people, you probably don’t handle it as well as you’d like. That’s because when we’re stressed, our bodies use certain nutrients much faster than usual. One of these nutrients is Magnesium. And, it is no coincidence that Magnesium also helps improve mood and alleviate anxiety. Supplementing with Magnesium for mood and stress issues can make a huge difference, especially if you may be deficient in the Miracle Mineral. But, always consult with your health provider before starting any new supplements or treatment options.

Benefits of Magnesium. 

Magnesium has many benefits, but three of its primary functions & nourishment are bodily nerve function, muscles, and bones. Recent studies have concluded that Magnesium plays a significant part in preventing and managing diabetes due to its ability to balance insulin in type2 diabetes, which balances protein synthesis and cellular metabolism. Magnesium holds a vital link to our hearts; without it, our hearts would beat irregularly. We have only touched the iceberg; let’s dig deeper and learn more about the many benefits of this Miracle Mineral. 

Magnesium-rich foods. 

The first way is to eat more magnesium-rich foods. Some good sources of Magnesium include dark leafy greens, nuts and seeds, beans and legumes, whole grains, fish, avocados, yogurt, and dark chocolate (more on this later). 

Some common signs and symptoms you may need more Magnesium. 

  • Pain in the neck & back
  • Anxiety & feeling stressed 
  • Fatigue 
  • Migraine headaches & tension headaches 
  • Muscle weakness, spasms, & pain 
  • Loss of appetite 
  • Vomiting & nausea
  • Insomnia & restlessness 
  • Palpitations & heart rhythm issues
  • Diarrhea or constipation 
  • Muscle twitching 
  • Poor circulation (Raynaud’s Disease) 
  • PMS & menopausal symptoms
  • Period pain (cramps) during your cycle  


Some additional ways to increase Magnesium in your life.

There are also a few different ways to increase your magnesium levels topically. One way is to take an Epsom salt bath, which is a great way to ground your energy energetically, and clear unwanted low vibes you may pick up. Here’s the scoop — add two cups of Epsom salt to a warm bath and soak for 20 minutes, then add in some of your favorite essential oils; lavender or rose both help create the soothing feel and good vibes. You can also try using a magnesium oil spray or lotion on your skin. 

Don’t miss out on this Miracle Mineral — AND let stress go! 

If you’re feeling stressed out or anxious, try increasing your intake of magnesium-rich foods or taking a supplement. Also, you’re going to LOVE this one … if you’re craving chocolate, you may need more Magnesium in your life. But the great news is chocolate gives you more Magnesium, so this may be an excellent excuse to eat some (within moderation, of course)!
