Top 20 Benefits of Magnesium: Good Sleep, Nerves, Heart, Bones

Greetings to you,

Included below is a wonderful chart that contains the top 20 health benefits of magnesium.  Some of these health benefits include remedying sleeplessness and insomnia, calming the nerves, strengthening the heart, lowering blood pressure, supporting the bones, relieving headaches and soothing PMS.

Magnesium for Sleep

Chronic insomnia is one of the main symptoms of magnesium deficiency. Sleep
in magnesium deficiency is usually agitated with frequent nighttime awakenings.
On the other hand, a high magnesium diet has been found to be associated with deeper, less interrupted sleep. This was shown in a study done by the Human Nutrition Research Center in North Dakota.  Other studies have found magnesium to enhance sleep and relaxation as well.

Calcium and Sleep

Calcium is also directly related to our cycles of sleep. In one study, published in the European Neurology Journal, researchers found that calcium levels in the body are higher during some of the deepest levels of sleep, such as the rapid eye movement (REM) phase. The study concluded that disturbances in sleep, especially the absence of REM deep sleep, is related to a calcium deficiency. Restoration to the normal course of sleep was achieved following the normalization of the blood calcium level.

Good Stomach Health: Top Four Most Proven Remedies

Stomach healthHere’s to a healthy and happy stomach for all. Good stomach health sets the direction for the overall health of the body.

Our energy and well-being depend on our stomach, intestinal and bowel health as these are the processing centers for all our foods and beverages.

When our intestinal tissues are healthy and pain-free, the nutrients we eat get absorbed well into the body and nourish every cell and organ and system.

Sometimes the stomach and intestinal areas may become sore, irritated or upset and can benefit from some natural remedies to heal them.  The lower bowel can also become inflamed or irritated and this may be a sign of hemorrhoids.

Here is a summary of some of the most proven remedies:

Okra

Okra is good for soothing sores in the stomach, increasing health in the intestinal tissues, supporting digestion, and cleansing toxins from the small intestine.  It is also proven in studies to relieve ulcers. This vegetable has been valued for its edible green pods and high amounts of vitamin C and folic acid (vitamin B9). Powdered okra supplements are available and eating whole okra is beneficial.

According to a study in the Journal of Food Processing and Technology: “Okra is used to stabilize blood sugar by regulating the rate at which sugar is absorbed from the intestinal tract. It is a good vegetable for those feeling weak, exhausted, and suffering from depression and it is also used in ulcers, lung inflammation and sore throat, as well as irritable bowel.”

Collinsonia

Collinsonia is a wonderful herb that helps to normalize the entire intestinal tract and related organs such as the liver.  It is also effective for vein health, varicose veins and remedying hemorrhoids, according to an article taken from the American Materia Medica. It assists in keeping the bladder and kidneys healthy as well.

Vitamin C

Whole food versions of the famous vitamin C are vital to a healthy intestinal tract.  This includes sources such as acerola cherries and camu camu berries, which are usually found in powdered supplement form. Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) can affect any part of the gastrointestinal tract from the mouth to anus. Chron’s disease is one form of this and the symptoms can include stomach pain, diarrhea, fatigue and malnutrition.

In one study, it was found that 7 out of 10 people with Chron’s had a severe vitamin C deficiency – so vitamin C is highly recommended for any type of intestinal ailment.

Minerals

Mineral deficiency can have a profound effect on our intestinal health.  One study showed that a deficiency of magnesium leads to inflammation in the small intestine, as well as significant changes in nearby and remote organs and an increase of overall stress in the body.  Natural sources of minerals are best such as kelp, alfalfa, and leafy green vegetables like chard and spinach.

In summary, irritations of the stomach, intestines and bowel can be helped and even remedied and healed.
