The miracle of magnesium!

Suffer from headaches? Or have problems sleeping? Then it might be worth increasing your magnesium dose! I used to suffer from both, and magnesium has really helped! It also has lots of other amazing health boosting properties too.
Health Benefits of Magnesium
  • Helps migraines and headaches
  • Help with depression
  • Helps fight inflammation in the body
  • Increase energy
  • Calm nerves and anxiety
  • Treat insomnia and helps you fall asleep
  • Help with digestion by relieving constipation
  • Relieve muscle aches and spasms
  • Important for heart health
  • Help reduce insulin resistance and guard against type 2 diabetes
  • Help with PMS symptoms

Obviously it's best to try and get all the magnesium your body needs naturally through your diet. Foods high in magnesium include:

- seeds like pumpkin or squash

- spinach or swiss chard

- quinoa

- cashews

- almonds

- mackerel, tuna and pollock

- low-fat yoghurt of kefir

- black beans and lentils

- avocado

- figs

- bananas

- dark chocolate (awesome!)

You can get your magnesium levels checked via a blood test and if you require supplements then they are easy to get hold of in any health food shop. Do check with a health practitioner before taking them as too much in your body can be dangerous.
