If there’s one mineral you shouldn’t live without as a mum it’s magnesium. Why? Because it helps with pretty much EVERYTHING we need – better sleep, more energy, detoxification and digestion.
It relieves fatigue, insomnia, anxiety and depression.
I do a lot of nutritional research and this is one thing that comes up time and time again. It’s estimated that 3 in 4 of us are deficient… In fact, it’s known as the “invisible deficiency” because it’s hard to detect. I suggest to my holistic therapy clients to try a magnesium boost and supplement, I sell the Nutricode version directly myself (to order yours email email@example.com).
But WHY are so many of us deficient in this critical mineral?
Diet. Mass-produced foods are often stripped of this natural mineral. Try eating a diet rich in natural, organic, and whole foods. At the same time, avoid processed foods.
Sweets. For every molecule of sugar we eat, our bodies require 54 molecules of magnesium to process it!
Stress. Stress hormone production uses magnesium. The more stressed we are, the more we deplete our stores of this mineral.
Medication. The drugs we take to regulate blood pressure and treat other diseases work to deplete magnesium levels.
So what are the signs You Have a Magnesium Deficiency?
Early signs of magnesium deficiency include physical and mental fatigue, muscle weakness, loss of appetite, nausea, and headaches.
What can you do about it?
You can try to get more from your diet - magnesium occurs in leafy green vegetables, nuts, and seeds.
Avoid stress, alcohol, sugar, and sodas to stop depleting it from your body
Take regular Epsom salt baths to get a healthy dose of this sought-after mineral
Finally, try a high quality supplement. To boost your levels quickly – give this Nutricode Vitality Boost & Magnesium Power shots a go (order from me directly via email for £21.50). The hit of B vitamins combined with the magnesium will get you off to a good start and you can then continue with a longer term supplement.
Mums, if you want one mineral that does it all, magnesium is it.
