How does magnesium work in your body?

Blood- and bodycells and bones ensure that the magnesium level in the body is kept constant. Magnesium is absorbed via the intestines and the excess is excrete again via the urinary tract. Sufficient magnesium is important. When a shortage occurs, you will see the following complaints:

  • muscle cramps, restless legs,
  • nausea,
  • listlessness,
  • fatigue symptoms,
  • headache,
  • heartpalpitations and other problems with heart and vessels.
  • A shortage of magnesium can also play a role in diabetes.

Which products reduce Magnesium intake?

  • Coffee,
  • black tea,
  • soda pops,
  • alcohol,
  • sugar.

Which nutrition contains Magnesium?

  • Green leafy vegetables, such as spinach, andive, kale, broccoli,
  • all sorts of raw nuts,
  • raw cocoa,
  • bananas,
  • avocado,
  • seaweed and algea,
  • legumes,
  • whole grains.

You can also compensate for a magnesium deficiency by using a supplement. There are different types of magnesium compounds on the market: Magnesium taurate, stearate and bisglysinate are able to cross the blood-brain barrier. Magnesium taurate met l-taurine, works mainly on improving the state of mind, the brain and the nervous system. Magnesium malate mainly works on improving fatigue and reduced muscle function. A citrate compound is also a good one to use.

According to the Health Counsel, the daily amount of magnesium for women is 250 tot 350 mg and for men 300-350 mg.

I hope this information was useful for you.
