MAGNESIUM is crucial for healthy muscles, nerves, bones and blood sugar levels. But, for some reason, none of us has enough of it….for a variety of reasons. It may be the medications you take, stress or a high sugar intake which helps deplete your magnesium levels. There is an easy fix. Yes, you can fix it with food (do you see a pattern here….?)
To get more of this essential mineral (which you need 24/7), eat more greens, nuts, seeds, dry beans, whole grains, wheat germ, wheat and oat bran.
But, did you know that you can “fine tune” your Magnesium intake? We’ve all taken a trip down the supplement aisle…there are several different types of Magnesium. And, each one can be used for a specific issue or concern.
If you’re having trouble falling asleep – MAGNESIUM GLYCINATE.
If you are stressed and anxiety and/or need to improve blood pressure levels – MAGNESIUM TAURATE.
If you’ve got migraines (ughhhh), try MAGNESIUM OXIDE.
Start with 300 – 420 milligrams at night….be aware that if you take a higher dose right off the bat, you may have some “not so nice” side effects (nausea or diarrhea – according to Dr. Erin Wade).
As always, please chat with your physician before you start a new protocol, you may be able to take small doses over the course of the day or crank it up if your levels are low.
