Hey guys. Axe here, Founder of draxe . Today, I’m going to share with you eight warning signs that you have magnesium deficiency, and there are many symptoms of magnesium deficiency that a lot of people have. So then, think about this, there is a good chance that you have a health condition and if you just got more Magnesium in your diet, it could be gone for good. There are people suffering with eight common conditions that if you just get more magnesium in your diet it is going to transform your health forever. According to recent research, 80% of Americans are Magnesium deficient. So, you’ve got to.
Get more Magnesium in your diet or at least 80% of people do. The first warning sign that you are magnesium deficient is that if you have any form of a headache, whether it’s a tension headache or a migraine headache that’s a big warning sign and one of the reasons is that magnesium really helps in relaxing muscles, it helps with overall cellular function, and so again, Magnesium is critical. If you have a headache, had any type of headache at all, consider getting more magnesium foods in your diet or taking a magnesium supplement, and at the end, I’ll share more with you about magnesium foods and supplements.
The number two sign that you have a magnesium deficiency is if you get muscle cramps. Now, a lot of the times people think that that’s potassium and it can be, but it’s also magnesium. And so again, if you are an athlete or let’s say you’re laying sic in bed at night and you ever get muscle cramps or if you struggle with muscle cramps on a regular basis, you are magnesium deficient. You really want to work on increasing both potassium intake and magnesium intake if you get muscle cramps. The third warning sign that you’re magnesium deficient is if you have osteoporosis or if.
You have osteopenia or any type of weak muscles or weak bones, or you get injured easily. You know Magnesium is a major building block of your muscles. And listen to this, a lot of people will go and take a calcium supplement without even taking a magnesium supplement for your body to even use calcium. You have to have magnesium. So again, magnesium, it’s critical for building strong bones. So, it’s essential that children are getting magnesium rich foods, adults’, especially aging women, are getting magnesium foods and supplements on a regular basis. The fourth warning sign that you are magnesium deficient is if you have diabetes or imbalanced.
Blood sugar. If you tend to eat something and then afterwards you get really tired. In fact if you’re one of those people that hits the sort of two o’clock coma at work after lunch, that’s a big warning sign that you are magnesium deficient. So, again if you have diabetes or you have low energy levels, or even have adrenal fatigue, those are warning signs that you’re not getting enough magnesium in your diet. The reason is that magnesium is a critical mineral for improving glucose absorption and really balancing out your blood sugar. You really have to have magnesium for cellular function.
The fifth warning sign, you may have high blood pressure. So blood pressure issues, if you have high blood pressure on a blood pressure medication, magnesium has been shown to be one of the best natural remedies to naturally lower or balance out your blood pressure. The sixth warning sign that you have a magnesium deficiency is if you struggle with insomnia or not being able to sleep at night, and that includes both not being able to fall asleep or stay asleep during the night or even waking up early on a consistent basis. You need magnesium for that.
If you do struggle with that, the best time to take magnesium is with dinner or right before bed in the evening. The seventh warning sign you are magnesium deficient is if you struggle with anxiety and depression. In fact, magnesium has been shown to help calm the body, the muscles, and help improve mood. It is a vital mineral for overall mood. In fact one of the things I’ve recommended to patients over time with anxiety is taking magnesium on a daily basis and they’ve seen great results. And last but not least, would be muscle pain. That’s a sign that you’re magnesium deficient as well.
Reversing Type 2 diabetes starts with ignoring the guidelines Sarah Hallberg TEDxPurdueU
I have the best job in the world. I’m a . No! Believe me that’s not why. I’m an obesity . I have the honor of working with the group of people subject to the last widely accepted prejudice: being fat. These people have suffered a lot by the time they see me: shame, guilt, blame and outright discrimination.
The attitude that many take, including those in healthcare, is that these people are to blame for their situation. If they could just control themselves, they wouldn’t be overweight, and they are not motivated to change. Please let me tell you this is not the case. The blame, if we’ve got to extend some here, has been with our advice. And it’s time we change that.
Obesity is a disease, it’s not something created by lack of character. It’s a hormonal disease, and there are many hormones involved. And one of the main ones is a hormone called insulin. Most obese individuals are resistant to this hormone, insulin. So, what does that mean exactly, to be resistant to insulin? Well, insulin resistance is essentially a state of prepretype 2 diabetes. Insulin’s job is to drive glucose, or blood sugar, into the cells where it can be used.
In a nutshell, when someone is insulin resistant, they are having trouble getting blood sugar where it needs to go, into those cells. And it just can’t hangout in the blood after we eat or we would all have a diabetic crisis after every meal! So, when someone is resistant to insulin, the body’s response to this is to just make more of it. And insulin levels will rise and rise,.
And for a while, years even, this is going to keep up, and blood sugar levels can remain normal. However, usually it can’t keep up forever, and even those elevated levels of insulin are not enough to keep blood sugar in the normal range. So it starts to rise. That’s diabetes. It probably won’t surprise you to hear.
That most of my patients have insulin resistance or diabetes. And if you are sitting there thinking, quot;Phew, that’s not me,quot; you actually might want to think again, because almost 50% of adult Americans now have diabetes or prediabetes. That is almost 120 million of us. But that’s hardly everyone who has issues with insulin. Because as I was saying, people have elevated insulin levels due to insulin resistance.
For years, even decades, before the diagnosis of even prediabetes is made. Plus it’s been shown that 1625% of normalweight adults are also insulin resistant. So, in case you’re keeping track, this is a heck of a lot of us. So, the trouble with insulin resistance is: If it goes up, we are at great risk for developing type 2 diabetes. But also, insulin makes us hungry,.
