Do you experience these often?
Exhaustion -- Regular Migraines -- Bruise Easily -- Dizziness -- Poor Memory -- Restless Legs
Magnesium deficiency could be part of the reason. 6 months ago, I noticed how extremely tired I was all the time. I even changed my sleep cycle to get 2 more hours of sleep and it did not help at all. I started researching possible causes and after much digging, it turned out may have had a magnesium deficiency. I was surprised and I wasn't really sure either. I eat balanced meals, limit sugar, fortify my diet with supplements and take care of myself the best I can. I decided to try supplementing magnesium and it made a HUGE difference in my overall health.
Magnesium is a mineral that is found in our body and we need correct levels for energy production, to metabolize carbs, fats and proteins, help with tissue formation and maintain proper muscle function.
It turns out, after more research, I found out that less than 30% of the population gets enough magnesium.
How Do I Know If I'm Deficient?
Signs of a Deficiency
Increase Your Magnesium Intake
Increase your intake of nuts, spinach, beans, yogurt, avocado, etc. Click here for a full list of foods.
I personally noticed the biggest change in all of my symptoms when I started taking magnesium citrate, dissolved in water, daily.
You can increase your magnesium intake by by using concentrated forms of magnesium chloride in the form of magnesium bath salts, lotion, oil or gels. Google search 'transdermal magnesium' for more information.
Have you had any experience with magnesium deficiency? I would love to hear what you tried!
