Do you get enough Magnesium?

50% of the population have Magnesium deficiency.

I had quite often muscle cramps and with Magnesium intake, it stops…
Afterward, I ate all kinds of seaweed, drank hot cacao (out of natural, unprocessed cacao with water), flaxseed, Brazil nuts; ate very much green salad, …
I didn’t need any Magnesium supplements…
This works…
Still, I decided I take just a little bit of Magnesium supplement.

A Magnesium deficiency can easily kill us…
Magnesium is in so many processes involved, that a deficiency can trigger many symptoms.

Without proper pro-biotic, we cannot get the Magnesium out of the food.
Take your pro-biotic or eat fermented food every day.

If you do have a couple of these 8 Symptoms you do have Magnesium deficiency.

1. Muscle cramps
Magnesium directly interacts with your muscle tissue through a process called ion transportation.

When magnesium contacts your cell membranes, it bonds with specific receptor sites that open up the cell membrane and allow other mineral ions to enter, such as calcium and potassium.

Worst case Heart attack.

2. Sleeplessness

Magnesium binds to gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) receptors and activates them. GABA is the neurotransmitter responsible for quieting down nerve activity.

A lack of magnesium can result in low GABA levels, and when GABA is low, your brain gets stuck in the “on” position and it becomes impossible to relax.

3. Anxiety/Stress

A 2012 report, published in the Journal of Neuropharmacology, found that magnesium deficiency caused an increase in the production of cortisol in the brains of the mice, specifically by activating the paraventricular hypothalamic nucleus, a part of the brain that controls responses to stress and anxiety.


4. Osteoporosis

It’s not well known that magnesium is necessary to convert vitamin D into its active form so that it can turn on calcium absorption.

Magnesium stimulates the hormone calcitonin, which helps to preserve bone structure by drawing calcium out of the blood and soft tissues back into the bones. This action helps lower the likelihood of osteoporosis.

5. Muscle Weakness

A decrease in intracellular magnesium, caused by magnesium deficiency, releases the magnesium-mediated inhibition of ROMK channels and increases potassium secretion.


6. High Blood Pressure

Magnesium plays a critical role in BP regulation as it’s been shown to stimulate prostacyclin and nitric oxide formation.

7. Constipation

The laxative effect of magnesium appears to come through two different mechanisms.

Muscle Relaxation: Magnesium relaxes the muscles in the intestines, which can help to establish a smoother flow as the stool passes through the bowels.

Stool Softener: Magnesium draws water into the intestines, working as an osmotic laxative.

This increase in water stimulates bowel motility – it also softens and increases the size of the stool, triggering a bowel movement and helping to make stools easier to pass.

8. Low Energy

Gluconeogenesis increases on keto, demanding more ATP.

ATP (adenosine triphosphate), the main source of energy in cells, must be bound to a magnesium ion in order to be biologically active – what is called ATP is often actually Mg-ATP.

In other words, magnesium is required in the reactions that create ATP energy in the cells
Without magnesium, you literally won’t have energy on a cellular level – this shows up as fatigue, low energy, lack of drive, and other problems.

There exist many supplements, and most of them have negative side effects or the body cannot process them. The best is Magnesium glycinate, has no side effects, is easy to digest, and is best for relaxation… The next best is Magnesium citrate, which has side effects… And all the other Magnesium supplements are good for the garbage.

Recommend are, that we get every day around 400mg of Magnesium in our blood. This means we eat a lot of green leaves and other food as I have described…
We supplement only 200mg.
