Have you considered how the role magnesium plays in your body affects your daily health? Magnesium is responsible for various roles in the body, and having low magnesium may affect your health in ways you may be unfamiliar with.
Let’s dive into five signs of low magnesium, and how magnesium affects your body:
1. Muscle Spasms and Cramps
If you are experiencing muscle spasms and cramps, it may be a sign of low magnesium. Magnesium is an electrolyte responsible for providing normal muscle and nerve function. When magnesium is consumed, it allows our muscles and nerves to provide us with adequate communication between muscles when we move our bodies. When we consume enough magnesium, our bodies store the majority of it in our bones, causing our bones to become stronger and allow for proper muscle support.
2. Anxiety and Depression
Research has shown that low magnesium can contribute to feelings of anxiety and depression. The reason behind this, is because magnesium binds to calming receptors in the brain, as well as it stops the effects of stimulating neurotransmitters. This allows our brain and body to feel more calm, leading to decreased feelings of anxiety and depression. Cortisol levels will also decrease when consuming magnesium, as magnesium regulates cortisol and removes it from the body.
3. Low energy
Feeling fatigued can also be another indication of low magnesium. Magnesium plays a role in the production of energy in the body. By maintaining adequate communication in the nervous system, magnesium can improve energy levels in your body. This is why magnesium in Tchê plays such a vital role in improving energy levels, as we believe in providing what your body needs to succeed. With magnesium, yerba mate and guarana, your energy levels will be elevated. Yerba mate contains caffeine that maintains a steady level of energy while guarana and magnesium can aid in reducing fatigue.
4. Decreased Bone Health
What does bone health have to do with magnesium? Everything! When we consume the right amount of magnesium for our bodies, our bodies will use it by helping us feel calm and energized. If our bodies have a sufficient amount of magnesium for its daily duties, it will store the remaining magnesium in our bones. Consuming enough magnesium allows for increased bone density, preventing one of the most prevalent bone diseases affecting our elderly population: osteoporosis. Without enough magnesium our bone density may decrease and our bones can become more susceptible to breaking. Which means you wouldn’t be able to use all the lovely energy Tchê provides with broken bones *wink wink*.
5. Hormone Imbalances
Hormone imbalances can also be a sign of low magnesium. Magnesium is vital in balancing hormones, as it is a natural stress reducer, electrolyte and mineral. It is essential in balancing hormones such as testosterone, progesterone, estrogen and DHEA. Learning how to balance hormones can come with many questions and for further details you can read Dr. Sagebin’s article on healing your hormones naturally here!
In conclusion, here are five signs of low magnesium:
1- Muscle Cramps and Spasms
2- Anxiety and Depression
3- Low Energy
4- Decreased Bone Health
