Life is busy and we need to be more mindful of ways we can support our body, particularly in times of change and stress.
Some important questions to ask are, what supplements do we need to maintain our healthy body functions? And what minerals are we lacking due to processed foods and high amount of stress and depleted soils. And how can we achieve a healthier lifestyle in general?
This all sounds "big" but its quite easy to become healthier - start by getting into nature, find some local organic farmers to buy your fruit and veggie from, connect with a butcher selling organically grown grass-fed meat and poultry and investigate Superfoods and minerals such as magnesium.
Magnesium is an essential electrolyte for living organisms and it plays and important role in maintaining good health. Magnesium is an essential mineral and its needed for many cellular functions in the body and is also known as an "anti stress" mineral. Multiple health benefits of Magnesium include transmission of nerve impulses, body, temperature regulation, detoxification, energy production and the formation of healthy teeth and bones.
Magnesium works within our cells, it’s a crucial role affects the brain, muscles, blood vessels and our overall wellbeing and health condition.
"The real miracle is that that the modern man gets by as well as he does with so little of this essential nutrient. A hundred years ago - before we depleted our soils with greedy agricultural practices - the average person received at least 500mg of magnesium a day, according to the US Department of Agriculture. Without supplementation, in 2009, even on a pure organic diet, you are looking at only 150mg at best. Those on a pure McDonald ́s diet may be lucky to get 50mg. And we may need between 600 and 900mg per day!"
We need to consume this important mineral regularly to prevent a deficiency as low levels of Magnesium have been associated with Alzheimer’s disease, insulin resistance and type-2 diabetes mellitus, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Asthma, cardiovascular diseases (eg. stroke), migraines, high blood pressure, and many, many more. Even lots of neuropsychiatric disorders like stress, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, sleep problems or insomnia have been linked to a lack of Magnesium intake.
