Magnesium, the Disciplinary Mineral Master Sergeant

I think of the minerals as a kind of Army in Your Embattled Body

I think of the body as a battlefield and Magnesium as the tough old Sergeant that keeps the brave soldier calcium disciplined or he will cause havoc. How is this?

Problems of Deficient Magnesium

Did you know that 57% of the population is deficient in Magnesium and there is a deficiency of this vital mineral in 80% of heart attacks?  So it is really important in cardiovascular function. Calcium controls the contraction of the heart, and magnesium controls its relaxation and clears out the calcium deposited – so it maintains the proper ratios.  So if you are deficient in it you tend to get arrhythmias that range from a skipped beat to an extra beat to a flutter to atrial fibrillation, a palpitation to a hesitation.  And there are angina and heart cramps. It is calcium running havoc that builds up and creates many of these problems without the disciplinary Sergeant on board.

Other Related Problems

Hyperirritability or kids and adults. Ever see someone who just could not relax or wind down? And there are muscle cramps, spasms of the arteries that is really coronary constriction.  So the calming effect of magnesium works wonders to settle these down. And then it helps you sleep at night because it is a calming mineral. In all of this magnesium keeps calcium in proper ratio and levels. Calcium is so indispensable in many ways but it is a wild child and fortunately, we have that badass Magnesium Sergeant to keep him under control.

Even More problems:

As you know, your bones are made of calcium, and here again stands Sgt Mag keeping an eye on things, for otherwise there is a tendency to have bone spurs, arthritis, (build-up of Calcium in the joints), bursitis, tendonitis. There are cataracts, kidney and gall bladder stones, and high blood pressure (magnesium is a calming mineral)  It helps relax muscles in the colon and constipation. You may have memory problems or learning ability problems. So the body must have this vital controlling element affecting the entire body.

Stress

One of the really big killers is stress. Magnesium reduces cortisol and adrenaline. You need vitamin D to absorb calcium and magnesium.  Alcohol and diuretics, and anti-acids will deplete magnesium.  If you have reflux or stomach problems and are taking any of the standard antiacid like Alka seltzer or Tums, it will literally toss out magnesium. So this can be a problem in absorption. As you usually take Magnesium by mouth, it goes into the stomach to be absorbed. Thus this is something you must know to get the best results from any supplement you may take.

Diet and Supplements

There is a solution. The best handle is diet but even eating all of the proper superfoods, you may still be deficient, and deficiencies of this major mineral can lead to misery and lots of problems.  This deficiency is caused because people don’t have enough leafy greens, nuts, seeds, eggs, but it is mainly leafy greens.

Superfoods Rich in Magnesium

Kale, Cabbage, Brussel Sprouts, Beets, Asparagus, Garlic, Tumeric, Parsley. These superfoods contain all of the minerals you need. Notice, there is no meat or carbs here. Find a great supplement and take it daily. It will be a new day, and a new life, and a new you.
