If you’re feeling run down, stiff or you just can’t seem to get a good night’s sleep, or if you find yourself tossing and turning with legs that ache, there’s a good chance you may be deficient in magnesium
Magnesium is the single MOST IMPORTANT MINERAL for maintaining electrical balance and metabolism in our cells. It is responsible for over 300 critical enzymatic actions in our body!
What would happen without magnesium?
Our brains would simply stop working. Magnesium is a highly conducive metal… and our brain works because of electricity.
Our nerve impulses (how our brain talks to our body) would stop transmitting.
Our bones weaken, and our joints and muscles stiffen. This is because you NEED Magnesium to move the calcium in your body. One of magnesium’s many jobs is to move calcium from tissue to your bones. This makes your bones (and teeth) strong. So when calcium is not moved… it starts to calcifies your muscles and joints. So, essentially if calcium gets ‘stuck’ in your body except your bones, this could lead to osteoporosis and fractures.
So be sure to include plenty of magnesium rich foods in your meal plans each day. Some magnesium rich foods are listed below:
