MAGNESIUM 101

If you’ve been here for a hot minute you know I’m always nagging everyone about getting enough Magnesium.

I find in chatting with clients that most people don’t know how important this mineral is to the smooth functioning of our bodies.  And, they may not be aware of the many different types of Magnesium there are out there.

Magnesium is responsible for helping our bodies to relax, lower inflammation reactions and so much more.

But, as with pretty much everything – the TYPE of Magnesium you use DOES matter.

Let me share what I use and why I use it: (Each version title is linked to the brand I use daily)

MAGNESIUM CITRATE: 

I take this if I’ve been traveling for a long period of time and my system is unhappy and not functioning properly.  It’s inexpensive and easy to absorb.

MAGNESIUM MALATE:

Feeling exhausted no matter what you do or how long you sleep?  This is the BEST magnesium for exhaustion and/or fatigue as it helps with energy production.  Malic acid is a natural fruit acid that our body  has in its cells.

MAGNESIUM GLYCINATE:

If you’ve had a long term deficiency, this is the best option for you.  It does not have any laxative effect.  Magnesium glycinate with B6 is a great support for PMS and has calming properties.  It may help with calming properties, depression, stress, and insomnia.

 

I use these as needed and always chat with my medical provider before embarking upon a new regimen.  I track my levels with labwork and review annually with my physician.
