Today I want to share 3 HUGE reasons why you should not be deficient in the mineral magnesium citrate.
The truth is this mineral is the fourth most abundant mineral in the body, and many very smart people in the health industry think it’s the most important one. So what does it do? This is a difficult question to answer because it’s involved with over 350 biochemical reactions in the body and that is a lot.
For example just in the heart, which is kind of important organ it regulates the beat. Israeli researchers game magnesium to half of 194 people suffering from acute heart attacks.
The in-hospital death rate of those receiving a magnesium was one-fourth that of those who received standard treatment alone. If you think about that it is huge.
But just like those late night infomercials, wait there is more. A massive problem that is facing developed nations is diabetes thanks to all the sugary foods we eat.
In a study published in the 2013 issue of the journal “Nutrients” found that the majority of diabetics found that most of them were deficient in this mineral. Those with the highest magnesium in their system reduced their risk for blood sugar problems by 71 percent.
Lastly, another huge problem we face is toxins. We are being exposed to more pollution, toxins and contamination’s than anytime in the past.
Magnesium plays a role in your body’s detoxification processes. Plus there is this antioxidant that is produced in your body called glutathione. Some health experts feel it’s the most important one. Well this one mineral is required in order for this antioxidant to be made.
I really just touched the tip of the iceberg on this mineral and it does so many other wonderful things. Now you might be wondering how you can tell if your deficient in it.
This is a challenge because only 1% of this mineral is in the blood making blood tests notoriously difficult to identify a deficiency. The symptoms are very similar to age related problems like fatigue, memory problems and high blood pressure.
You might be thinking about getting it through food. The average American diet contains barely over 50% of the U.S. R.D.A of magnesium according to the Institute of Medicine. Some really smart people think that nearly 70% – 80% of American have a deficiency in this vitamin.
One great idea is to take a quality multivitamin.
