Magnesium 

Hi guys, this quick article explains how we benefit from Magnesium – most of us are deficient which causes:

  • Muscle, weakness, fatigue, twitching and cramps
  • Bones to become Brittle
  • Asthma
  • Mental Disorders
  • Irregular Heartbeats
  • High Blood Pressure

I did a bit of digging and to get some facts and tips to make sure we’re getting enough.

So, what is magnesium? 

The short answer is that Magnesium, a mineral that is present in all living things. It’s in the earth, in the sea, in plants, animals and (of course us!) Humans.

The longer answer is:

  • It a cofactor in chemical processes of enzymes. Over a staggering 600 reactions in our bodies!!!
  • Prevents Migraines
  • It has exercise benefits
  • Improves PMS syndrome
  • Benefits us against Type 2 Diabetes
  • Fights Depression
  • Helps with sleep
  • Can lower blood pressure
  • Anti-inflammatory benefits
  • Reduces insulin resistance
  • And, it’s available in so many everyday foods and supplements

What are good paleo sources of Magnesium?

  • Almonds
  • Avocado
  • Dark Leafy Greens – Spinach is the best source!
  • Cashews
  • Nuts and Seeds
  • Pumpkin
  • Raisins
  • Spinach
  • Salmon
  • Tuna
  • Bananas

So you now have no excuses for not getting the right hit of Magnesium – I use this a Magnesium Oil spray on my arms before bed. It has the added benefit of aiding a goods night’s sleep.
