Magnesium: Helping People Achieve Better Health

Magnesium: Helping People Achieve Better Health | magnesium | Natural Health Natural Medicine

Magnesium is one of the many minerals that are essential in improving overall health. It is known as the fourth most abundant mineral found in the human body. Around 50 percent of the magnesium in the body can be found in the bones while the remaining 50 percent is present within the cells of organs and tissues. A deficiency of this essential mineral triggers a lot of problems including those that affect digestion and sleep quality, and high blood pressure or hypertension. Among the major signs that a person is already suffering from magnesium deficiency are the following:

  • Emotional symptoms including restlessness, hyperactivity, anxiety, irritability, mood swings and depression
  • Structural symptoms such as muscle spasms, weakness, chronic fatigue and osteoporosis
  • Cardiovascular symptoms including yellow and fatty arterial plaque, high blood pressure and irregular heartbeat
  • Premenstrual syndrome
  • Blood sugar difficulties
  • Sleep difficulty
  • Neurological symptoms like pain sensitivity and migraine attacks

It should be noted that this deficiency is also caused by a wide range of factors including excessive sugar, sodas and alcohol intake, over-consumption of coffee and chocolates, high intake of animal protein, high salt and dairy intake, regular exposure to loud noise or music, stress, excessive heat and isolated supplementation of calcium.

Why magnesium is essential to human health

Numerous aspects of human health cannot be expected to survive without an adequate supply of magnesium. One of the many things that magnesium can do is to safely regulate blood pressure. A person who strictly follows a diet plan with fruits and vegetables that are rich in magnesium and potassium can expect to enjoy a lower blood pressure.

People who regularly supply their body with the right amount of magnesium can also expect to enjoy a healthier cardiovascular system. This mineral plays a major role in preventing strokes and heart attacks. Evidence also show that magnesium deficiency increases the risk of dealing with abnormal heart rhythms that trigger complications linked to heart attacks. Reliable research also show that those who have high levels of magnesium in their blood have the lowest risk of suffering from coronary heart diseases.

Another aspect of human health that can greatly benefit from the adequate consumption of foods rich in magnesium is the neurological system. The mineral works in relaxing the nerves and getting rid of any tension, resulting in better sleep. It is also essential in the proper functioning of the brain, digestive system, lungs and nerves; and in the sending of correct messages to his glands, muscles and organs, thereby ensuring that the entire body functions well.
