Are you trying to balance your career, take care of your children on top of managing a household? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may also feel stressed. Most Americans are. Stress has a tremendous impact on our overall health; it causes weight gain, anxiety and even insomnia. But did you know that stress severely depletes your magnesium stores?
Now, some of you may ask, “What is magnesium?” Magnesium is an essential trace mineral required for almost every single body process. And when your magnesium levels are low it can it can lead to a whole bunch of issues. Today, we are going to discuss why everyone should be taking a magnesium supplement.
First, let’s discuss some common symptoms of magnesium deficiency:
- Muscle cramping and twitches
- Heart palpitations
- Kidney stones
Let’s face it, we’re all overworked, exhausted and probably don’t eat as well as we should. All of these things deplete magnesium stores in the body. Combine these things with our food being grown in nutrient-poor soil and our affinity of sugary sweets and desserts and you have a recipe for disaster! Did you know that for every one molecule of sugar you eat, it takes over 50 molecules of magnesium to break it down? No wonder we’re deficient!
Recently I had the privilege of meeting with Dr. Jennifer Shell once again, you may recognize her from the Women’s Mind Body Wellness Summit. We sat down and talked about all things nutrition, and where did that lead us? Magnesium! She talked about different types of magnesium, how you can determine the best type for you and she even shared why she believes magnesium is more vital to bone health than calcium!
