Commonly Overlooked, Magnesium is More Important Than You Think

Back to feed
Magnesium is one of the most important basic nutrients, as it helps to fuel our bodies and is required for more than 300 biochemical reactions. Fortunately magnesium is in a lot of foods, such as dark green leafy vegetables, beans, nuts and seeds, avocados, bananas and some meats.
Magnesium is a muscle relaxant, and works with calcium which is a muscle constrictor, but most people who eat the standard American diet are deficient in magnesium!

​Some common symptoms of depletion are:

  • Stress
  • Fatigue
  • Abnormal heart rhythm
  • Headaches
  • Anxiety
  • Osteoporosis
  • Constipation
  • Being on certain medications, such as diuretics, antibiotics, insulin, and cortisone.

To help remedy this deficiency, we’re happy to let you know that there are many types of Magnesium supplements on the market today. Interestingly, as well, bathing in magnesium flakes or using magnesium oil are a great way to absorb it in through your skin. It works great!
You can find various supplements, as well as the items mentioned above, inside the Herb ‘N Jungle at both locations. We’ll see you soon!
