Magnesium: Just How Important Is It?
Magnesium is an essential mineral that far too many people are deficient in. It is probably responsible for many of the dis-eases of our time. Some of the symptoms of this deficiency are:
• fatigue, lack of energy
• muscle spasms
• blood sugar fluctuations
• blood pressure (high)
• poor sleep patterns
• poor digestion
As you can see, this mineral is essential to recovering energy and well being.
Also, if you crave chocolate it may be an indication that you are deficient. Some people crave chocolate who don’t even like it!
It is essential because it helps your muscles to relax. It also helps them to produce energy inside the muscle fiber. You will sleep better, have more energy and should find that aches and pains diminish as you use this mineral. It also helps to metabolize fats, carbohydrates and proteins by making enzymes and hydrochloric acid.
If you are very deficient, when you first start taking it, you may feel worse and feel even more tired. Don’t be discouraged. This should diminish after a few days or weeks.
If you take too much you may get diarrhea, so you should start with 1 or 2 pills and after a few days increase the amount.
Many of the symptoms of fibromyalgia correlate with the symptoms of this mineral deficiency. You should see a benefit from this.
