Let’s talk about magnesium

Magnesium has exploded onto the health scene the past few years – and with good reason.

It is the fourth most abundant mineral in the human body and one of seven essential macrominerals which has the power to significantly change the way our body functions. 

Magnesium can help the body maintain normal nerve and muscle function, stabilise hormones, improve cell renewal and reduce inflammation in the body. This super mineral is found in both the earth and the ocean and significant supplementation is recommended in order for your body to function most efficiently.

Magnesium is also a mood enhancer. The hormones magnesium regulates help calm the brain, improve blood circulation, and relax the heart rate. And since it raises levels of the mood-boosting serotonin, it can can even help reduce depression and anxiety (some studies have found it to be just as effective at treating mental illness as antidepressants).

Benefits of magnesium


Helps to relieve adrenal fatigue

If you are suffering from chronic stress and your adrenal glands are running overtime, magnesium could help as it calms stress levels and balances your stress hormones such as cortisol.

Can improve chronic fatigue syndrome

A study published in the medical journal Lancet, found that magnesium deficiency may play a role in chronic fatigue syndrome. After studying hundreds of patients, they found that approximately 50% of the patients had a magnesium deficiency, and their condition improved after magnesium supplementation.

Reduces cramps and PMS symptoms

Magnesium has been shown to provide relief for dysmenorrhea (painful cramps) without any side effects.

Boosts exercise performance

When you exercise, your magnesium levels drop rapidly and if you have a deficiency, you are bound to feel fatigued during and after your workout. 

Decreases muscle cramps and spasms

A lack of magnesium in our bodies causes our muscles to spasm and cramp. When we have adequate amounts of magnesium in our bodies we can help to relax our muscles, making recovery more effective and our workouts less painful.

Along with these immediate body benefits, magnesium also works from within and studies have shown it can also:
