Read this to first find out if your body really needs a dose of Magnesium?
All the health experts have been telling us since ages to incorporate healthy foods to our meals every single day. They emphasize a lot on balanced diet approach towards eating. Why? Because having balanced diet can ensure that all your vitamins and mineral needs are sufficiently met but besides having balanced diet you can still have magnesium deficiency because this is the mineral that is needed for over 300 biochemical reactions in the body. It is an essential mineral that aids the most important chemical reaction of breaking down of glucose into energy. In case your body is deficient in this mineral that obviously means slower chemical reaction leading to low production of energy.
Another very important thing that has to be highlighted here is that you must have heard and even at some point experienced that overeating can be a massive cause of low energy.
When you overeat you become lethargic and your body gets low on energy because overeating means more chemical reaction in your body that converts glucose into energy which also needs a lot of magnesium to successfully complete this biochemical reaction. After a certain time when magnesium levels get low in your body the reaction becomes slower as a result you feel drained and low on energy. Even the slightest drop in the magnesium levels can result in a massive drop in your energy levels. This study over here will clarify it further.
At the Department of Agriculture’s Human Nutrition Research Center in Grand Forks, N.D., a research took place the results of which stated that “women with magnesium deficiencies had higher heart rates and required more oxygen to do physical tasks than they did after their magnesium levels were restored.”
How does this happen?
When this happens the bodies are working really hard to complete all these mechanical processes which can, in the long run, result in massive depletion of energy which leaves you strained and exhausted.
By this time you must be like ok fine! Get it! Our body has to go through all these reactions and responses but WHAT NOW? The very important question that must be popping up in your head right now is that how much magnesium is really required to get done with all of these reactions and still stay energized?
The recommended daily intake of magnesium is around 300 milligrams for women and 350 milligrams for men.
Ok thanks! Now you must be like, great! we know how much is required but WHERE TO GET IT FROM?
Ok, relax! You can get magnesium from some of these sources:
- Squash and pumpkin seeds
- Raw spinach
- Beans and lentils
- Whole grains &
If you still can’t get enough magnesium from all these sources or maybe you don’t like any of these then it is recommended that you take magnesium supplements.
Hope this has helped solve energy crisis in your body! We will keep updating you with so much more… Stay tuned :*
