Did you know the importance of Magnesium to your body?

Magnesium is responsible for transportation of calcium across cell membranes. It helps calcium get into the bone matter. Magnesium is known to have anti-inflammatory property. It helps in reducing risk of developing the following conditions:

  1. Arthritis
  2. Alzheimer’s disease
  3. High blood pressure
  4. Respiratory issues
  5. Diabetes

Magnesium deficiency can create numerous health issues. This element works in our body at a cellular level. It is important to get yourself examined by your doctor to ensure your magnesium level is normal, however, a simple a blood test cannot determine the presence or absence of its deficiency. Here are a few signs that might suggest that an individual is suffering from magnesium deficiency.

  1. Severe calcium deficiency presenting as brittle bones
  2. Extreme and unexplained weakness
  3. Tremors
  4. Frequent and unusual muscle cramps
  5. Difficulty in swallowing food
  6. Nausea
  7. Poor heart health
  8. High blood pressure
  9. Type 2 diabetes
  10. Poor memory
  11. Intense, unexplained confusion
  12. Unexplained anxiety

Although individuals with magnesium deficiency suffer from these symptoms, it is not necessary that every individual suffering from such symptoms might have magnesium deficiency. So, the only way to improve magnesium level in the body is by changing your diet and including magnesium rich foods or by supplementing your food with magnesium-based food products.

Here is a list of items that can relieve the deficiency symptoms of low magnesium.

  1. Soya bean
