Magnesium is a mineral, specially used by your heart, muscles, and kidneys. Most magnesium is stored in your bones and organs, where it is used for many biological functions. Up to 80 percent of Americans are not getting sufficient magnesium and may be deficient. Other research shows only about 25 percent of US adults are getting the suggested daily amount of 310 to 320 milligrams (mg) for women and 400 to 420 for men.
Magnesium is as well found in more than 300 different enzymes in your body and plays a role in your body’s detoxification processes, making it important for helping to avoid harm from environmental chemicals, heavy metals, and other toxins.
Magnesium is necessary for:
Activating muscles and nerves
Creating energy in your body by activating adenosine triphosphate (ATP)
Helping digest proteins, carbohydrates, and fats
Serving as a building block for RNA and DNA synthesis
Acting as a precursor for neurotransmitters like serotonin
Dr. Dean has studied and written about magnesium for more than 15 years. And below you’ll find the areas where magnesium deficiency triggers, all of which have all been scientifically proven.
Heart disease, Insomnia, Blood clots, Depression, Fatigue, Cystitis, Diabetes, Hypertension, Kidney disease, Hypoglycemia, Liver disease, Nerve problems, and Reynaud’s syndrome. Early signs of magnesium deficiency include loss of appetite, headache, nausea, fatigue, and weakness.
The Role of Magnesium in Diabetes, Cancer, and More
Magnesium may even help lower your risk of cancer, and a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition showed that higher intakes of dietary magnesium were associated with a lower risk of colorectal tumors.
Results from the meta-analysis indicated that for every 100-mg increase in magnesium intake, the risk of colorectal tumor decreased by 13 percent, while the risk of colorectal cancer was lowered by 12 percent. The researchers noted magnesium’s anti-cancer effects may be related to its ability to decrease insulin resistance, which may definitely affect the development of tumors.
Calcium, Vitamin K2, and Vitamin D Must Be Balanced with Magnesium
When you’re taking magnesium, you need to consider calcium, vitamin D3 and vitamin K2 as well, since these all work synergistic-ally with one another. If you have too much calcium and not enough magnesium, your muscles will tend to go into spasm, and this has consequences for your heart in particular. According to Dr. Dean “What happens is that the muscle and nerve function that magnesium is responsible for is diminished. If you don’t have enough magnesium, your muscles go into spasm. Calcium causes muscle to contract. If you had a balance, the muscles would do their thing. They’d relax, contract, and create their activity”. If you choose for oral vitamin D, you need to also use it in your food or take supplemental vitamin K2 and more magnesium. Taking mega doses of vitamin D supplements with no sufficient amounts of K2 and magnesium can guide to vitamin D toxicity and magnesium deficiency symptoms, which contain inappropriate calcification that may damage your heart.
Tips for Increasing Your Magnesium Levels
One of my primary sources of magnesium is that I normally drink one pint to one quart of fresh green vegetable juice every day. Organic foods can have more magnesium if grown in nutrient-rich soils but it is very difficult to make that determination. If you opt for a supplement, be aware that there are a wide variety of magnesium supplements on the market, because magnesium must be bound to another substance. According to Dr. Dean “The best way to tell if you are getting enough magnesium is the “bowel test”. You know when you have too much magnesium when your stools become loose. This, in fact, may be a blessing for people with constipation, is one of the many ways magnesium deficiency manifests.”
Moreover taking a supplement, another way to get better your magnesium status is to take regular Epsom salt baths or foot baths. Epsom salt is a magnesium sulfate that can absorb into your body through your skin. Magnesium carbonate, which has antacid properties, contains 45 percent magnesium. Magnesium chloride/Magnesium lactate contains only 12 percent magnesium, but has better absorption than others, such as magnesium oxide, which contains five times more magnesium. Magnesium sulfate/Magnesium hydroxide (milk of magnesia) is typically used as laxatives. Be aware that it’s easy to overdose on these, so ONLY take as directed.
