A HEALTHY MAGNESIUM LEVEL

For the lovers of movement and sports: a healthy magnesium level contributes to:

  • Relieving muscle pain.
  • Promoting strong bones, joints and teeth.
  • Supporting the energy level in case of fatigue.

 

THE FUNCTIONS OF MAGNESIUM

Magnesium is a star player in the team that builds your bones because it increases bone density. A healthy magnesium level is also very important for your muscles. Not only your washboard abs but as well your heart (a muscle) benefits from this, as it is responsible for the relaxation and contraction of your muscles, among other things.

So it’s clear that magnesium is an enormously important mineral. The nervous system cannot function without it, because magnesium is needed for the transmission of nerve impulses.

 

“Magnesium is an essential mineral for your body. It is involved in your energy levels, nervous system, muscles and bones.”

 

COMMON CAUSES OF MAGNESIUM DEFICIENCY

Intensive exercise can be very beneficial, but it also let’s magnesium disappears through transpiration. Magnesium deficiency can also be caused by certain medicines, such as laxatives. Nutrition can be as well a disturber on your magnesium balance. For instance, too little food with B-vitamins and too much food with calcium and proteins. Too much sugar can also cause a deficiency because magnesium makes an effort to maintain a healthy blood sugar level.

 

“Do you suffer from muscle cramps, fatigue or just hyperactivity? Then you may have a magnesium deficiency.”

 

HOW TO GIVE YOUR BODY ENOUGH MAGNESIUM

Of course, there is enough food that contains magnesium. Good sources of magnesium are for example seaweed, sunflower seeds and soya. The daily recommended amount is 350 mg for men and 280 mg for women. 100 grams of sunflower seeds contain 420 mg of magnesium, so that’s about 83 grams of sunflower seeds per day for men and 67 grams for women. But. Unfortunately, due to the impoverishment of the soil, the magnesium content in food is not as high as it used to be.

If you have a deficiency, you can take supplements. I would recommend magnesium citrate. This is an organic form of magnesium that is very well absorbed by your body. But you can also opt for the wonderful method I learned during my study.

AND HERE IT IS: AN EASY SOLUTION TO A MAGNESIUM DEFICIENCY

What you need

1. Fill the spray bottle with 1/3 magnesium and 2/3 water.

2. Spray on the soles of your feet every evening before going to bed.

Your foot soles contain a large concentration of sweat glands. The magnesium will slurp itself into your body via these sweat glands.

Notes
