MAGNESIUM// Mg is an essential mineral and plays a key role in more than 350 biochemical processes within our body
Muscle tissue contains 25% of total body magnesium, that’s why we constantly hear that we need it for our muscles
A heavily wound up nervous system will not only create a deficiency but reduce Mg absorption in the process/ Marginal deficiencies are more common and are very often undiagnosed ~Signs & Symptoms of Mg deficiency can include:
*muscular weakness & spasms
*cramps (everyone has experienced that jolt in bed when your foot cramps up!) *headaches/migraines
*twitching eyes (big sign)
Food sources include- dark leafy greens, nuts, fish, legumes, whole grains, eggs.
Magnesium has therapeutically been used to treat #constipation as well as alleviate #migraines/ Be sure to consult a practitioner as these signs & symptoms can be related to many ailments and really depends on the individual~ #magnesium #magnesiumdeficiency
