Magnesium deficiency in our bodies is one of the most under-recognized deficiencies compared to other nutrients. The mineral, widely available in our food supply and environment, seems to be causing serious concern. 

USES OF MAGNESIUM IN THE BODY

  • Magnesium plays an important role in energy production and storage, muscle contraction and maintenance of blood glucose levels.
  • It has been established as a key nutrient, especially for individuals with a regular exercise regimen and athletes.
  • The mineral is known to improve athletic performance as it increases glucose availability as well as lactase clearance in the muscles during exercise.
  • Magnesium is also known to promote strength and cardio-respiratory function.

VULNERABLE GROUPS

Its role among athletes appears to be far more significant than realised and can have life-threatening consequences if overlooked.

SYMPTOMS

Insomnia, muscle cramps, muscle weakness, headaches, fatigue, dizziness, irritability, hyper-excitability, decreased concentration and depression. Severe magnesium deficiency may cause low blood calcium and potassium levels, loss of appetite, nausea, arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat), even cardiac arrest and sudden death

PREVENTION

Improving magnesium intake by consuming foods such as bananas, seeds, nuts, dark chocolates, coconut water, green leafy vegetables, avacados, legumes and whole grains.
