These are just some of the vital roles magnesium plays in the body:
Necessary cofactor for more than 300 enzyme reactions in your body
Needed for the relaxation of muscles so it is a key treatment for muscle cramps
Required for stable blood sugar and insulin sensitivity. Consumption of refined sugars deplete magnesium.
Vital for cardiovascular health
Key for balancing hormones for both men and women because it supports balanced minerals in the body
Needed in increased quantities during periods of increased emotional or physical stress, since stress burns through magnesium stores
Essential for mood regulation, particularly reducing anxiety and promoting a sense of wellbeing
How can you benefit by using magnesium oil? These are a few of the ways magnesium oil therapy works to improve symptoms by reducing the magnesium deficiency in your body:
Supports overall health and a suitable supplement for most individuals
Reduces (and should eventually stop) muscle cramping, including menstrual cramps
Improves sleep, because magnesium is a “calming” and “soothing” mineral
Very helpful in reducing symptoms of PMS including bloating, mood swings and breast tenderness
Widely helpful for headaches and even migraines, according to Dr. Sircus. Many individuals have reported profound improvement in migraines when they use magnesium oil regularly.
A key part of any hormone-balancing protocol, because magnesium helps balance the other minerals and hormones in the body
As an anti-stress agent in the body, it often promotes a sense of peace and wellbeing. It is very helpful in depression and anxiety.
Signs of Magnesium Deficiency
Another good list of early warning symptoms is:
Suggestive early warning signs of magnesium insufficiency:
*Physical and mental fatigue *Persistent under-eye twitch *Tension in the upper back, shoulders and neck *Headaches *Pre-menstrual fluid retention and/or breast tenderness
*Possible manifestations of magnesium deficiency include: *Low energy *Fatigue *Weakness *Confusion *Nervousness *Anxiousness *Irritability *Seizures (and tantrums) *Poor digestion *PMS and hormonal imbalances *Inability to sleep *Muscle tension, spasm and cramps *Calcification of organs *Weakening of the bones *Abnormal heart rhythm
*Severe magnesium deficiency can result in low levels of calcium in the blood (hypocalcemia). Magnesium deficiency is also associated with low levels of potassium in the blood (hypokalemia). Magnesium levels drop at night, leading to poor REM (Rapid Eye Movement) sleep cycles and unrefreshed sleep. Headaches, blurred vision, mouth ulcers, fatigue and anxiety are also early signs of depletion.
