MAGNESIUM – A Life Changing Nutrient!
Several interesting facts:
- More than 75 years ago, scientists declared Magnesium to be an essential mineral.
- Magnesium regulates more than 325 enzymes in the body, the most important of which produce, transport, store and utilize energy.
- Milk depletes Magnesium. Milk is loaded with Calciferol (synthetic vitamin D) which binds Magnesium.
- Research shows that many patients with Asthma and other bronchial diseases have low Magnesium.
- The Mercury content of dental amalgams drastically increases the excretion of Magnesium and Calcium from the kidneys.
- Magnesium helps eliminate heavy metals from the body.
- Magnesium deficiency is common in most chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia sufferers.
- Magnesium keeps Calcium dissolved in the blood so it will not form kidney stones.
- Magnesium plays a pivotal role in the secretion and function of insulin; without it, Diabetes is inevitable.
- Magnesium prevents muscle spasms of the heart blood vessels, which can lead to a heart attack. Magnesium prevents muscle spasms of the peripheral blood vessels, which can lead to high blood pressure.
- Magnesium prevents Calcium buildup in cholesterol plaque in arteries, which lead to clogged arteries.
- Magnesium helps the brain recover from head injury.
- Magnesium relaxes head and neck muscles, tension that makes migraines worse.
- Magnesium is a blood thinner keeping thickened blood and tiny clots from causing blood vessel spasms and pain.
- Magnesium deficiency can produce symptoms of anxiety or depression, including muscle weakness, fatigue, eye twitches, insomnia, anorexia, apathy, apprehension, poor memory, confusion, anger, nervousness and rapid pulse.
- Serotonin, the “feel-good” brain chemical that is boosted by Prozac, depends on Magnesium for its production and function.
- Low Magnesium levels are implicated in cases of suicide and severe depression.
- An over acidic body depletes Magnesium.
- The following drugs create Magnesium deficiencies: common diuretics, birth control pills, insulin, digitalis, most antibiotics and cortisone.
- Magnesium helps to transmit nerve signals.
- Magnesium produces and transports energy.
- Magnesium relaxes muscles.
- Supplemental iron can impede Magnesium absorption and vice versa. (Take them several hours apart).
- Calcium, Phosphorus, Potassium, Sodium and Lactose all inhibit Magnesium absorption.
- A high-protein diet makes Magnesium deficiency worse.
- Soy products (high in phytic acid) inhibits Magnesium absorption.
- Carbonated drinks and processed foods, along with sugar, binds with Magnesium to make insoluble Magnesium Phosphate, which is not absorbed by the body.
- In general an average of only 50% of the ingested Magnesium is absorbed and even this rate will depend on many, many factors.
- Magnesium helps anxiety and panic attacks.
- Magnesium deficiency slows down the bowel, causing constipation and colitis.
- Bladder spasms (cystitis) are worsened by Magnesium deficiency.
- Insufficient Magnesium may cause hypertension.
- Magnesium helps prevent gynecological problems and many obstetrical conditions.
- Magnesium helps prevent bone loss and osteoporosis.
- Magnesium deficiency causes an unhealthy balance of Phosphorus and Calcium in saliva, which damages teeth.
- Magnesium keeps insulin under control, preventing hypoglycemia.
- Magnesium levels in our soil is extremely poor.
- Laboratory tests prove that fruits, vegetables, grains, eggs, milk and meats are not what they were a few generations ago – we are simply not getting the minerals – like Magnesium, that our bodies must have.
- Excess Magnesium in the system is very safe – creating only loose bowels.
MAGNESIUM IS TRULY ONE OF THE MOST SIGNIFICANT MINERALS NEEDED BY THE HUMAN BODY.
