Are you Magnesium deficient?
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. Magnesium 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!
