The All Mighty and Powerful Magnesium
The power of Magnesium
According to Dr. Wallach, there are 60 essential minerals necessary for optimal health. Minerals are necessary for a variety of functions within the body and having any mineral deficiency, poses an imbalance and may jeopardize your heath. While all of the 60 essential minerals are very important, magnesium is a bit more than just essential. Necessary for over 300 chemical reactions in the body, it plays an exceedingly important role in your health. However, an estimated 70-80% of the U.S. population does not consume enough magnesium in their diets.
Support your cardiovascular health
Many studies have shown that magnesium delivers numerous benefits to your overall health. A study conducted in The Netherlands revealed that daily magnesium supplementation (350 mg) helped reduce the stiffness of arteries in overweight and obese adults. Previous studies have also found that adequate magnesium intake helps keep the heart rhythm steady, supports healthy blood pressure, and also reduces one’s risk of heart disease and stroke. Additionally, deficiencies of the mineral have been associated with metabolic syndrome (high blood pressure, high blood sugar, unhealthy cholesterol levels, and abdominal fat). Individuals with the highest average intake of magnesium were at 31% lower risk of metabolic syndrome.
Support your bones
Aside from supporting cardiovascular health, magnesium is also a powerful mineral when it comes to bone health. Previous research has shown it to be beneficial in the prevention of osteoporosis; playing a vital role in bone formation and supporting healthy bone density; which is especially important in aging adults. About 50 – 60% of the magnesium in your body is stored in your bones.
support your overall health
We could spend an entire day going over the 300 reactions that magnesium is involved in. From energy production to immune system heath to glucose metabolism, magnesium is necessary for hundreds of areas in the body. Previous research has found that healthy magnesium levels in the body play a vital role in helping you adapt to rhythms of night and day; supporting a good night’s rest. This only solidifies that magnesium is needed everywhere.
supplementation is necessary
Although it can be found naturally in many vegetables, fruits, nuts and legumes, the best way to ensure you’re getting your necessary dose of magnesium, is through supplementation.
