Signs of Magnesium Deficiency

Research has shown that mice given extra magnesium had better working memory, longterm memory and a greater ability to learn.  According to head researcher Dr. Liu, 'Magnesium is essentials for the proper functioning of many tissues in the body, including the brain and, in an earlier study, we demonstrated that magnesium promoted synaptic plasticity in cultured brain cells.'

7.  Brain Power

According to Dr. Carolyn Dean, a magnesium expert and Medical Advisory Board member of the Nutritional Magnesium Associatin, magnesium could be the answer to a host of premenstrual symptoms.  These include such things as mood swings, fluid retention, depression, breast tenderness, headaches, poor sleep and sugar cravings.

6.  PMS

5.  Migraines

Research has shown that low brain magnesium is evident during a migraine attack.  One study found that a regular intake of magnesium reduced the frequency of migraine attacks by just over 41 percent.  Another study found that taking a magnesium supplement daily can help prevent menstrual-related migraines.

Studies indicate that even having a slightly reduced level of magnesium can cause severe changes in how the heart. blood vessels, blood cells and other tissues function.  Magnesium is critical for proper electrical and mechanical functioning within tissues such as nerves and muscles (such as the heart), and blood vessels.

4.  Heart Health

No one likes being anxious.  If you find you are frequently in this state, you may want to try increasing your magnesium.  Low magnesium levels have been attributed to an increase in anxiety.  According to research, a diet low in magnesium changes the type of bacteria present in the gut and alters anxiety-based behaviour.

3.  Anxiety

Magnesium is essential for proper brain functin and mood regulation.  Research indicates that without enough magnesium, you are prone to depression.  In one study of over 8,000 people, researchers found that those 65 years old and under with the lowest intake of magnesium had a 22 percent increased risk of developing depression.  In a randomised controlled trial including older adults suffering from depression, a 450mg magnesium supplment improved mood just as effectively as an antidepressant drug.

2.  Depression

Magnesium helps to manage insulin levels in the body and can prevent blood sugar spikes and crashes from occurring.  It also plays a large role in blood pressure control, preventing high blood pressure from occurring, especially when combined with enough potassium in the diet.  This does two things:  controls stress that can elevate insulin levels and improves overall blood pressure that, when out of control, increases insulin resistance and can cause type 2 diabetes to occur more easily.

1.  Blood Sugar Balance

Health benefits of magnesium

Magnesium is intimately involved in over 600 reactions in the body including the metabolism of food, the transmission of nerve impulses, the synthesis of fatty acids and proteins, muscle movements, gene maintenance and protein formation.

Unfortunately, many people are deficient... Why?

  • ​Magnesium levels in soil are lower than they used to be
  • Chemicals such as fluoride and chlorine in water make magnesium less available
  • Sugar and caffeine also deplete magnesium supplies within the body.  In addition,
  • Stress is likely to make you magnesium deficient

A magnesium deficiency can lead to a range of chronic health issues.  Just to name a few:  calcium deficiency, poor heart health, weakness, anxiety and high blood pressure.  You can also add type 2 diabetes, respiratory issues, fatigue, poor memory and confusion to the list.
