Magical Magnesium

Magical Magnesium

Magnesium - the magic mineral

There’s a good reason magnesium is often called “The Magic Mineral” – it plays a crucial role in over 300 enzymatic reactions within the body, impacting everything from energy, metabolism and stress management to hormone balance, detoxification, sleep, and the creation of proteins.

Years ago, I discovered it was the key to easing my restless leg syndrome, which did indeed feel pretty magical after years of suffering.

Unfortunately, according to the World Health Organization, only about 25% of Americans are getting enough magnesium. Why are we so deficient in this magical mineral? Foods are now lower in magnesium than they used to due to soil depletion. Stress increases our magnesium burn rate and certain foods such as caffeine, sugar and alcohol deplete our magnesium stores.
