Magnesium is the second most abundant mineral inside the body's cells and is essential for hundreds of cellular reactions and the health of every organ. It is found in whole grains nuts and green leafy vegetables but is one of the nutrients lost during cooking and processing. Magnesium is also depleted by the use of certain medications (antibiotics diuretics oral contraceptives) and the consumption of alcohol processed meats and soda drinks. Researchers conclude that a significant proportion of North Americans consume less magnesium than they need. To compound our deficient diet our need for magnesium increases when we are under stress or experiencing digestive difficulties – things that affect all of us from time to time. Magnesium deficiency is difficult to diagnose and is not associated with any symptoms at first but inadequate magnesium reserves may contribute to many conditions including cardiovascular disease diabetes muscle pain and weakness migraines and headaches. Supplemental magnesium has been recommended by health professionals for decades as it plays a crucial role in our physiology allowing our bodies (including our cardiovascular system) to function properly.
