Are you Magnesium deficient?
If you're feeling run down, irritable, stiff or you just can't seem to get a good night's sleep, or if you find yourself tossing and turning with legs that ache...there's a good chance you may be deficient in this mineral...Magnesium.
may be the most common nutritional problem in the industrialized world today, yet it is the single MOST IMPORTANT MINERAL for maintaining electrical balance and metabolism in our cells.
The mineral content of vegetables today has dropped by more than 80 percent in some cases. Commercial farming technology and powerful fertilizers practically sterilize the soil - leaving it with little-to-no mineral content.
Magnesium content in vegetables has dropped between 25-80% since before 1950. And we're not getting it from other foods, either:
Refined grains remove 80-97% of magnesium.
Refined oils remove all magnesium.
Refined sugar removes all magnesium
Today statistics show that a majority of people are magnesium deficient.
This is bad news, because magnesium is one of your body's master minerals. You need it to make antioxidants and it helps fight anxiety and fatigue. It also tones blood vessels, enhancing circulation in the tiny vessels in your eyes and ears giving you sharper hearing and vision.
You need magnesium for healthy blood sugar.
Led by Adela Hruby, Ph.D., new research found that healthy people with the highest magnesium intake were 37 percent less likely to develop high blood sugar or excess circulating insulin, a precursor for diabetes.
Patients exhibiting early signs of diabetes benefited significantly from adequate magnesium consumption. Those who consumed the most magnesium were 32 percent less likely to develop diabetes compared with their counterparts who incorporated very little of the mineral into their diet.
Magnesium is Good for the Heart
Did you know that magnesium is unique in that it helps maintain healthy electrical balance required for normal heart rhythm?
Your heart works because of electricity... a tiny bioelectric current that keeps it beating steadily. Without magnesium, the electrical impulses would stop.
Recent research shows that people who get the least amount of magnesium have a 50% higher heart risk.
Unfortunately, it's difficult to get enough magnesium today.
Magnesium used to be in your drinking water. But water with high mineral content - hard water - fell out of favor because most people don't like the taste.
Modern farming practices have depleted much of the mineral content in our soil, so there's not much magnesium in everyday vegetables any more.
And, as you get older, not only do you lose magnesium from the place where you store most of it - your bones - but magnesium stored in bones isn't completely bioavailable as you age.
You can get more magnesium by eating beans, seafood, nuts, seeds, and some dairy products. Dark green leafy vegetables like spinach have magnesium because chlorophyll molecules contain magnesium.
But as noted... the mineral content of regular vegetables isn't what it used to be.
You can also supplement. You should strive to get 500-1,000 mg of magnesium daily. Start with at least 300 mg a day, and work your way up from there. Take it with vitamin B6. It will increase the amount of magnesium that accumulates in your cells.
However, be careful of the cheap magnesium supplements you find on store shelves. They often have impurities, and most are so cheap you can't even absorb them!

The Potency of MagCal-Ionic
Several unique and special processing procedures
are used in manufacturing MagCal-Ionic which
makes it a very powerful calcium and magnesium
MagCal-Ionic is a blend of calcium gluconate and
magnesium acetate and a residue of acetic acid
from apple cider vinegar. The magnesium acetate
used in MagCal-Ionic is some 2000 times greater
in solubility than magnesium carbonate and many
other forms of magnesium supplement products.
This means the ability of the body to absorb
MagCal-Ionic is exponentially greater than with
most competing products.
For what, and how is Calcium used?
Most of the calcium in the body is bone. But
providing skeletal material is far from calcium's
only role in the body. Calcium serves in nerve
transmission, muscular contraction, and blood
clotting. Your bones actually serve as a reservoir
of calcium - calcium is added or subtracted as
needed by the body (as determined by the
concentration of calcium in the blood - below
10mg/100ml calcium is mobilized into the blood,
above approx. 11mg/100ml, the bones absorb the
excess calcium). It is easy to see why dietary
calcium is important in maintaining proper bone
Women especially cannot afford to be without
adequate amounts of calcium in their diets!
The common female complaints of PMS and
symptoms of menopause may be relieved by
simple supplementation with the mineral,
calcium. The evidence is circumstantial, but
mounting fast, that PMS and menopausal
complaints are early signs of osteoporosis!
You will SEE RESULTS if you give MagCal-Ionic
- Body tensions relaxed
- Cramps reduced or eliminated.
- Restless legs syndrome reduced or eliminated.
- More restful sleep patterns.
Directions for use: 2 tablespoons (30 ml) per day
may keep the Doctor away (just like an apple a
day). Each dose should be kept in mouth for
at least 10 seconds, gently swish and then swallow.
