Not long ago I stumbled upon an internet article that changed my life. I cannot remember what I was searching for. What I came across resonated with me. It was that moment you hear people mention but rarely experience for yourself. The light bulb went on. Never had anything so simple made so much sense. I immediately knew this one little change would make a dramatic difference in the quality of my life.
I am talking about the miracle of magnesium supplementation. It is estimated that as many as 80% of Americans are magnesium deficient. That is a staggering percentage at first glance. It begins to make sense as you continue to think about it.
Magnesium as a Vitamin
Have you ever reached for Vitamin C at the first sign of a cold? I know I have. We know the benefits of Vitamin C. We hear about them all the time. This supplement acts to boost your immunity.
Have you ever reached for Magnesium at the first sign of Anxiety or Depression? I finally did. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg of benefits I am now enjoying since deciding to battle my low magnesium symptoms by taking a daily magnesium supplement.
The Benefits of Magnesium
Magnesium is a mineral that’s crucial to the body’s function. Magnesium helps keep blood pressure normal, bones strong, and the heart rhythm steady. Magnesium may reverse osteoporosis. Magnesium prevents cardiovascular diseases. It is associated with lowering the risk of coronary heart diseases. Surveys have suggested that sufficient magnesium intake may reduce the chance of having a stroke.
Magnesium treats diabetes by aiding in carbohydrate metabolism and influencing the release and activity of insulin, thereby controlling glucose levels.
Magnesium treats migraines, insomnia, depression, and anxiety. Magnesium is also known to cure several other debilitating psychiatric dysfunctions including panic attacks and feelings of extreme stress.

- Magnesium may be the elusive cure for migraines
My Journey with Magnesium
I am not a doctor. I am lucky enough to live in San Diego California (the weather really is perfect) but beyond that I am fairly normal. I have the same family pressures that you probably do. I work a boring 9-5 and think my boss is an idiot. I love my kids and enjoy walking my dog. Overall I was happy with my life as I am sure you generally are. But I felt like something was missing. That extra gear was not there. Coping with the stresses of life was trying. I felt run down more often than not. A piece of the puzzle was missing.
That puzzle piece was a daily magnesium supplement. I feel energized and relaxed. I sleep better at night and wake more easily in the morning. While life still throws a lot of curve balls my way, I feel more equipped to handle them and take things in stride.
I will never forget the day I stumbled upon that article talking about the benefits of magnesium. I am thankful for that encounter and want to help spread the word.
That’s what this blog is about. (I know, I’m finally blogging) I want to help those that don’t even know they need help. I want to help Americans battle the effects of low magnesium because it has truly changed my life.
