Your magnesium levels affect how every cell in your body works. If you are low you will feel it - low energy, distractible brain, muscle cramps, sleep disorders and so much more. You see modern farming depletes the soil so fruits and vegetables do not get the optimal soil nutrients.
Magnesium is required for healthy DNA, controlling blood glucose and pressure, making proteins, reduces muscle cramps, and manage nerve cells. No matter what your current regimen is if you are short here, it is unhealthy.
Supplementing for magnesium is not just one form but there are at least 7 vital forms that you should have daily.
Magnesium Threonate - to enhance cognition, memory and focus. This form readily crosses the blood- brain barrier which means quick absorption.
Magnesium Chloride for overall magnesium deficiency.
Magnesium Sulfate - detox and muscle pain - this might be the easiest from to find in the form of Epsom salts.
Magnesium malate for energy and muscles. This allows your energy to boost levels throughout the day. It calms overactive nerve cells. Some fibromyalgia patients have gotten relief with this type.
Magnesium Glycinate for SLEEP. This is a very highly absorbable form of magnesium. It is not likely to cause digestive trouble. With this form it is bound to glycine, an amino acid with a calming effect that improves quality of sleep.
Magnesium Oxide to stay regular. This is extremely for those who are not pooping at least 3 times a day. This is to be used in small doses.
Magnesium citrate for sleep and calmness. This is great to take at night because of its high calming effects on the body. This is also useful for muscle cramps and twitches.
I use the supplement from BiOptimizers. As always check with your healthcare provider. Matt Gallant one of the founders of BiOptimzers says, “What’s amazing about magnesium is we know it’s involved in over 300 different, metabollic processes.”
