We want to talk to you about one of THE most important nutrients – Mg MAGNESIUM!

Mg is a key nutrient for utilising energy (ATP), which is our energy.

Increased stress = more energy used (ATP) = rapid depletion of magnesium in the body

Mg helps to support:

  • Blood sugar balance

  • Optimal circulation & blood pressure

  • Cellular energy production

  • A calm nervous system

  • Pain relief & relaxed muscles

  • Bone density & calcium balance

  • Joints & ligament flexibility

  • Deep sleep patterns and more…

There are many functions supported by magnesium in the body:

  • Regulates calcium

  • Regulates heart contractibility

  • Energy production

  • Cleans the bowel

  • Relaxes smooth muscles

  • Sleep quality

Why do we need magnesium? Modern Farming practices have depleted the soil of nutrients. This means we receive a lot less magnesium from our food than we used to.

There are different types of magnesium, good/well absorbed and bad/poorly absorbed. They also have different functions within the body. Here is a list:

Good – good absorption: Malate – energising, metabolism, reduces muscle pain Glycinate – relaxing, gut friendly, good for nerve pain Dihydroxide Chloride – detoxifying, good for kidneys Sulfate Taurate – cardiovascular health Orotate – cardiovascular health Citrate – relaxing, reducing muscle pain, good for kidneys L-Threonate – brain injuries, depression, anxiety, memory, learning, neurodegenerative disorders

Bad – poor absorption: Oxide Dihydroxide Asparate Carbonate

Magnesium Deficiency Symptoms

  • Poor cognitive processing

  • Headaches

  • Constipation & related disorders

  • Fatigue

  • Poor sleep quality

  • Muscle spasms & cramping

  • Pain & soreness

  • Irregular heartbeat

  • Numbness & tingling

  • Mood & behavioural disorders

  4. Avocados

  5. Pumpkin Seeds
