Muscle spasms? Check your magnesium intake
If you are prone to muscle spasms and have difficulty with sleeping, you could be getting too little magnesium from your diet. Magnesium controls more than 300 enzyme processes in your body. Continue reading and find out how lack of this mineral can also affect your stress levels.
Two signs that you are getting too little magnesium from your diet are muscle spasms and sleeping difficulty. That is what Xposé.ie wrote online in their Fitness & Wellbeing section (“How to spot magnesium deficiency”, Oct. 16, 2016). Muscle spasms include cramps during workout sessions and even involuntary twitching of the eyelids that can be really annoying. If you are familiar with these problems, you should perhaps consider consuming more pumpkin seeds, almonds, dark chocolate and spinach, all of which are good magnesium sources.
The water test: Your proof that Bio-Magnesium works
This is your guarantee that the supplement is properly absorbed in your stomach. Watch the “water glass test” here:
Controls 300 enzyme processes – or more
What many people are unaware of is that magnesium controls well over 300 enzymatic processes in the body, some of which are important for normal functioning of nerves and muscles, normal psychological functions, etc.
People who drink a lot of coffee and/or alcohol may have an increased need for magnesium, and the mineral is also lost through perspiration. Another thing that seems to affect our magnesium levels is stress. During periods of emotional or job-related stress your body may consume more magnesium than otherwise.
