Magnesium: 'Powerhouse' Mineral Benefits for Health



Magnesium is a powerhouse mineral that your body depends on in over 300 biochemical reactions. From brain function to sleep quality to metabolism, magnesium plays a vital role. Yet research shows many people are deficient in this critical nutrient. How could something so essential be overlooked?


Our top soil which grows the foods we eat has been extremely depleted of all kinds of minerals. Along with the typical American diet consisting of highly processed materials and sugar, it's no wonder why chronic disease and obesity plagues our culture.


Do you feel fatigued often? Stressed? Lack deep quality sleep? Magnesium helps to regulate mood & cognitive functions. It helps to calm the nervous system by lowering cortisol levels which contribute to 'fight or flight' response.


Many people can have a hard time losing weight due to magnesium deficiency. If our food is not used as energy properly it then turns into stored fat. Transitioning your diet to more plant based and grass fed meats can be beneficial due to the higher mineral quantities.


A couple ways I like to supplement magnesium into my lifestyle is FIRST through food, Food is life & there are no shortcuts to getting the nutrition your body needs. Another great way to absorb this crucial mineral is through epsom salt baths and HELLO, whom wouldn't want to treat themselves to a relaxing bubble bath!!
