People underestimate the importance of magnesium. A lack of magnesium has serious repercussions and is responsible for a lot of the illnesses we suffer. Most of us are in fact lacking in magnesium, through a poor diet of highly processed foods containing no magnesium, excess coffee and alcohol intake, intense and ongoing stress and even intakes of prescribed drugs and antibiotics.
How is magnesium good for us?
It helps us cope with stress, relaxes muscles and improves our sleep. It is found in all of our tissues, our bones, muscles and even the brain. We need it to make energy, stabilize membranes and relax muscles
If you exhibit some of the following symptoms you may be lacking magnesium: Insomnia, anxiety, irritability, palpitations, constipation, migraines, fatigue, menstrual cramp, and high blood pressure.
Magnesium levels are affected by excess alcohol, salt, coffee, coca cola and other sugary drinks, intense stress, diuretics, antibiotics and other drugs.
Often called the relaxation mineral there are various ways to ingest magnesium. The best way to enjoy the health benefits is by eating a well balanced diet rich in greens, beans, seaweed, almonds, cashews, tofu, soy beans, brown rice, figs, dates, shrimp, avocado, parsley, beans, and garlic or ingesting in capsule or tablet form by buying magnesium supplements.
Enjoying an occasional hot bath infused with Epsom salts (magnesium sulphate) is also a great way of absorbing magnesium as well as by enjoying the odd relaxing float session at Flotarium.
Each capsule is infused with over 300 kg of pure magnesium so you’ll leave feeling relaxed physically, mentally and charged with that most essential mineral…magnesium.
