Do you ever feel like you've reached the breaking point of being stressed out? What if I told you that there’s something natural that would take care of that, as well as provide other great health benefits?
Most of us have probably heard a little bit about magnesium, or at least remember using it in our chemistry classes back-in-the-day. Sure, magnesium is fun for chemical experiments and lighting on fire, but what can it do for you?
Magnesium is more than just a combustible metal. It is needed for over 300 biochemical reactions in the body, including: maintaining normal muscle and nerve functions, regulating a healthy immune system, and keeping bones strong. It is one important mineral that most of us don't pay close attention to.
It is also used for treating stress, depression, ADHD, anxiety, kidney stones, migraines, and PMS. Athletes often use it to build up endurance and strength because magnesium converts sugar into energy. One important benefit of magnesium is that it can prevent osteoporosis. It can improve bone density and helps regulate the calcium your body is recieving. It can also significantly reduce the risk of heart attack or stroke because it stabilizes the rhythm of your heartbeat and maintains blood pressure.
Where do you get magnesium? No, there is no need to chew on some metal to get it, but many green veggies like spinach are abundant in magnesium. Some other sources are almonds, wheat bran, and soybeans. As a rule of thumb, think fiber. Most things that are high in fiber are also high in magnesium. For those over 31, it is recommended for men to take 420 mg a day and for women to take 320 mg a day. I don’t know about you, but I don’t have time to munch on 320 mg worth of spinach or wheat bran every day and thank goodness I don’t have to!
