Are you getting enough magnesium? It is estimated 70% of women are not consuming the recommended daily intake.
Magnesium is essential for hundreds of processes throughout the body but our bodies do not make it or store it. Daily magnesium needs vary with physical and mental stressors in life, making magnesium an important mineral to understand. Tuning into your body’s magnesium demand can have a big impact on your overall well being.
BONE HEALTH: Magnesium helps keep build strong bones. It helps vitamin K2 utilize calcium in the body so it can be used in the bones.
SLEEP: Magnesium maintains healthy GABA levels to help achieve a deep, restorative sleep.
STRESS RESPONSE: Magnesium’s support of GABA also helps the brain relax and slow down. Those who are more deficient in magnesium tend to feel more stressed and anxious. At the same time, stress and anxiety deplete our magnesium faster so we need more during times of stress to help get out of this vicious cycle.
HORMONE & MOOD: Magnesium has an antidepressant effect on the brain and helps regulate hormones. Magnesium has been found to help prevent and reduce migraines and help relieve menstrual discomforts.
