Are you deficient in magnesium? 10 Reasons To Take Magnesium Daily

loading...

Did you know that magnesium deficiency is linked to several chronic health problems?  Magnesium is involved in over 300 biochemical processes within the body and is important for many vital functions such as body temperature regulation, bone strength,  the production of energy and the dilation of blood vessels. (here)  This is why it is important to eat plenty of magnesium-rich foods and supplement, if necessary, with magnesium.  It’s no surprise magnesium is becoming a popular supplement for people with headaches, migraines, asthma and diabetes.  High cholesterol, muscle cramps and digestive disorders can also be effectively eliminated with a regular intake of magnesium.  Not a single system in the body is able to function properly without magnesium.

Here are 10 ways that magnesium can improve your health.

 

1. High Blood Pressure Regulation

When the muscles that line a major blood vessel contract, your blood pressure rises.  Magnesium helps signal muscles to relax.

2. Migraine Headaches

Magnesium is essential for the relaxation of muscles and blood vessels, so taking magnesium can help prevent migraines and tension related headaches.

 

3. Depression and Other Mood Problems

Magnesium helps alleviate depression and anxiety.  Magnesium plays a key role in raising levels of serotonin, known as a happy hormone.  Serotonin produced by brain helps to regulate mood, sleep,and appetite.  Magnesium also helps keep stress on adrenal hormones under control.

 4. Cancer Reduction

According to a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, for every 100-milligram (mg) increase in magnesium intake, a person’s risk of developing colorectal cancer goes down by about 13 percent.

Magnesium is responsible for the absorption of many nutrients in the body such as calcium, copper, zinc, potassium and vitamin D.  Magnesium aids the digestive system in regulating blood sugar levels, metabolism and protein synthesis. It also activates enzymes for energy production.

9.  Healthy Immune System

Since magnesium plays an important role in the regulation of other nutrients in the body, magnesium deficiency can result in many other nutrient deficiencies (such as vitamin D), subsequently a weakened immune system

10. Normal Muscle and Nerve Function

Magnesium plays a major role in the excitability of nerves and muscles.  It allows calcium to get into muscles when they need to contract and pulls it out when they need to relax.
