Magnesium is absolutely essential for the proper functioning of our body. However, magnesium deficiencies are very common… How to recognize them, avoid them and make them disappear? We tell you everything you need to know!

What is Magnesium?

Magnesium is an essential mineral for everyone. It participates in more than 300 essential metabolic reactions (energy production, protein synthesis, proper functioning of the nervous system, etc.). In an adult, there are about 25 grams, distributed mainly in the bones and muscles.

The body cannot create or store magnesium. The only contribution therefore comes from food. It is for this reason that it is essential to eat foods rich in magnesium every day.

Depending on gender and age, daily needs vary between 50 mg (for a baby) and 420 mg (for a man). The recommended nutritional intake for adults is 6 mg per kilo per day.

Where do magnesium deficiencies come from?

If magnesium is essential, Health Canada estimates that more than 40% of Canadian adults have deficiencies! The main cause? A diet offering an insufficient intake of this mineral on a daily basis…

However, our overall lifestyle can also impact our magnesium levels. As a matter of fact, stress, consumption of alcohol or tobacco can accelerate the elimination of the mineral from our body.

Certain illnesses and medications are also associated with magnesium deficiency.

Symptoms of magnesium deficiency

Magnesium deficiencies are often difficult to detect because they do not appear on a blood test. On the other hand, these symptoms can put you on the way:

  • Eyelid spasms
  • Tiredness
  • Stress, anxiety and irritability
  • Cramps, tingling or stiffness
  • Headache
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Dizziness, nausea or vomiting

If you recognize one or more of these symptoms, consult a doctor. He can help you detect a potential magnesium deficiency.

Avoiding deficiencies through food

As discussed above, food plays a major role in magnesium intake. If you suffer from deficiencies, opt for certain foods very rich in magnesium in particular:

  • Soy beans
  • Dark chocolate
  • Black or white beans
  • Brazil nut
  • Almonds
  • Cashew nuts
  • Boiled spinach
  • Boiled artichokes
  • Sardines
  • Whole grains
  • Mineral water

To supplement these food intakes, there are natural remedies designed to avoid or reduce deficiencies:

Magnesium Oligocan: an Oligotherapy remedy to be taken once a day, in the morning, with a little water.

Magnesium + Tablets: natural homeopathic tablets to relieve and actively reduce the symptoms of a deficiency.

Magnantyl + Royal Jelly: the benefits of magnesium combined with those of royal jelly, to regain vitality and good health!

By monitoring your diet and by taking a for a natural food supplement when needed, you ensure an adequate intake of magnesium. Say goodbye to  deficiencies and welcome health and vitality!
