With 50 - 60% of adults deficient in this essential mineral, there are dozens of health problems you may be suffering from if you're lacking in Magnesium.
For many people, the warning signs of Magnesium deficiency could be easily missed because they can be common and vague. Symptoms of deficiency could range from fatigue to headache or loss of appetite to high blood pressure.
Magnesium is a mineral that the body needs for optimal health. It is involved in over 300 processes in the body. Here are some examples of how Magnesium supports health and some examples of how a deficiency could harm your health.
Cardiovascular Health: Magnesium is crucial for the neuromuscular function of muscle contraction and relaxation. Guess what?! The heart is a muscle! This may explain why low magnesium has been associated with Atrial Fibrilation, High Blood Pressure and Sudden Cardiac Death.
Asthma: Magnesium's role in muscle contraction and relaxation may also explain why it's so important for healthy lungs and breathing. Magnesium deficiency may contribute to bronchospasm and make asthma attacks more severe.
Migraines: Several studies have shown Magnesium to help reduce the severity and frequency of migraine headaches.
Physical performance and anti-aging: Magnesium supplementation has been shown to improve performance by improving power and strength. Magnesium helps the body handle stress, and this may help explain why so many people are deficient. We live in stressful times and North Americans are some of the most stressed out people on the planet.
Magnesium has many more benefits and therefore there are many more potential problems caused by it's absence. For further reading we recommend checking out our friends over at Grassroots Health or read this Healthline article about Magnesium.
