This week, I’m continuing to talk about the minerals that are so important to our energy levels and cellular health. Our focus in this episode is on magnesium and how it supports thousands of different bodily processes.
Magnesium is a mineral that used to be abundant by eating vegetables and other produce, but due to our modern agricultural practices, it’s much harder to come by naturally in our diet these days. If we don’t get enough magnesium, it can have an impact on our entire body. It can affect our adrenal system, sleep cycles, menstrual cycles, blood sugar regulation, and so much more.
That’s why it’s important to know the signs of possible mineral deficiencies and how to test for them so you can start making a game plan for reversing the side effects. If you feel like you’re affected by chronic fatigue, muscle aches, depression, stress, and more, it could be as easy as identifying a magnesium deficiency to start feeling more like yourself again!
