Greetings to you,
Magnesium deficiency is very common these days. A recent government study shows that 68% of Americans do not consume the recommended daily intake of magnesium. I’ve included a helpful chart below that contains some of the top magnesium rich foods. Magnesium supplements are a good option as well, particularly those containing magnesium citrate which is very absorbable.
Sidney Baker, M.D., a practicing doctor with a special interest in the nutritional aspects of chronic health problems says: “Magnesium deficiency can affect virtually every organ and system of the body. One may experience muscle twitches, cramps, soreness, back aches, neck pain, tension headaches, and fatigue or weakness.”
Studies show that magnesium can soothe insomnia, support heart health, normalize blood sugar, and relieve headaches. In one study from the University of Iran, people with insomnia were given magnesium tablets twice a day for eight weeks. They experienced significant increases in quality sleep time, with less night time interruptions and fewer early morning awakenings.
