Magnesium Deficiency: What You Need to Know

May 22, 2016

Did you know that magnesium is the second most abundant mineral in the human body? (Calcium is first)  This essential mineral assists with more than 300 biochemical processes.  Yet, sadly, millions of people suffer with a magnesium deficiency and don’t even know it.

Magnesium is indispensable to all bodily processes. Because of this, a magnesium deficiency is highly dangerous to overall health.  So, you may be wondering, why is this issue often overlooked?  Consider this: Just 1 percent of magnesium is stored in the body’s blood supply.  Therefore, a deficiency is often hard to detect through traditional lab testing.

Magnesium deficiency comes with specific ‘mysterious’ and dangerous symptoms linked with chronic disease. The first stage is feeling chronically tired and lethargic – physically, mentally and emotionally.  Another common sign is insomnia. There can also be muscle spasms, nerve twitches and headaches. Emotional symptoms such as anxiety and premenstrual irritability can also occur, as well as frequent urination, extreme thirst and hunger, and blurred vision.

If magnesium deficiency continues, the body will have no reserves of this key nutrient in storage to deal with stress, whether it be mental, emotional, physical or environmental.

At its most severe stages, magnesium deficiency can start to affect the heart, which contains the highest levels of magnesium in the entire body. When the tissues in the heart are affected, heart health is inevitably impacted. There can be heart palpitations, angina and even a heart attack.
