Foundational Supplements - Magnesium

Magnesium is involved in almost all the body’s major cellular metabolic and biochemical processes. As much as 75% of the U.S. adult population does not meet the Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) for magnesium (400mg) according to the World Health Organization. 

How do I know if I’m deficient? Only 1% of the body’s magnesium is in the bloodstream and therefore simple serum tests for magnesium are inefficient.

Why is magnesium important?

  • Vitamin D cannot be metabolized properly without magnesium.

  • Magnesium is involved in regulating blood pressure by relaxing blood vessels.

  • Magnesium is essential for bone health and osteoporosis prevention.

  • The healthy maintenance of muscles, including the heart, requires magnesium.

  • Insufficient magnesium levels may play a role in type II diabetes, headaches, poor sleep, anxiety, poor memory and cognitive function, and PMS.

Ways to increase magnesium:

Foods - Dark leafy greens, legumes (beans and lentils), nuts, and whole grains 

OptiMag 125 - Highly absorbable magnesium - (magnesium glycinate)
