What is magnesium?
Unbeknown to many Magnesium is one of the most important minerals in the body and is often referred to as the 'Spark of Life' mineral because it works like a spark plug for lots of different biological processes. It plays a role in energy release and the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, normal psychological function, the maintenance of bones and teeth and normal muscle function, including the heart muscle. Science has proven that it is vital for keeping the body running smoothly and is therefore pretty key to overall health.
Why take a magnesium supplement?
Despite the body of evidence that supports the health benefits brought about by sufficient magnesium levels in the body, the UK National Diet and Nutrition Survey shows that average intakes fall short for many of us. Diets dominated by highly processed foods is one factor leading to widespread deficiency however another factor could be stress. Stress depletes the body of magnesium by increasing the amount that is excreted through urine, this in turn enhances the body's response to stress which results in more magnesium being lost. A vicious cycle that can only be addressed by boosting magnesium levels. Magnesium rich foods include green leafy vegetables, avocados, nuts, seeds, legumes and wholegrains, as well as pseudocereals like quinoa and buckwheat. If you feel like you're not getting enough of these sorts of foods in your diet then you should consider taking a magnesium supplement to bridge the nutritional shortfall.
