Can a Magnesium Deficiency Make You Twice as Likely to Die?

magnesium-elementYou might be 2 times as likely to die as other people with a magnesium deficiency in an often overlook but extremely critical mineral, according to a study published in The Journal of Intensive Care Medicine.

Magnesium deficiency also accounts for a long list of symptoms and diseases — which are easily helped and often cured by adding this nutrient.

Magnesium is critical for over 300 enzyme reactions. It is often used in medicine - but many medical professionals don't know why or use it before an emergency.  Magnesium is one of the 4 electrolytes that include sodium, potassium and calcium.

Magnesium deficiency is linked to inflammation (elevated levels of C-reactive Protein), autism, PMS, cramps, early labor, high blood pressure, asthma, insomnia, anxiety, headaches, constipation, angina, chronic fatigue, osteoporosis, and so much more including weight gain and obesity.  Basically if you have a health concern, you might want to look at supplementing magnesium.

You can find a natural source of magnesium in a whole state in Red Raspberry Leaf. It is the best whole and natural source. And it has long been a remedy for men and women for puberty, male/female menopause, PMS, cramps and pregnancy.

We carry a new Liposomal delivery system of magnesium that many find very beneficial - especially for those with digestive issues (most Americans).MagnesiumLiposomal

And you can use magnesium topically. You can make your own, or come get ours.

Try soaking more often in a bath of Epsom salts.

Magnesium is often overlooked.

Many are deficient because our need is much greater.

Most people do not eat enough of the foods high in magnesium.  Food sources are: High magnesium foods include dark leafy greens, raw nuts and seeds, wild fish, beans, whole grains (not whole grain commercial bread and pastas - it isn't there despite the label - you need actual real whole grains like your grandparents used to eat), brown rice, avocados, real raw yogurt (not commercial), bananas, dried fruit, and dark chocolate which is why many women and men crave chocolate (again not the junky cheap chocolate with sugar, real healthy and good for you dark chocolate).

And many people are deficient because of the poor conditions of our guts or our digestive systems.  Minerals like magnesium require a low pH to be absorbed.  Your stomach is normally a low pH to properly digest food.  American's are confused by this and think that acid reflux is the result of TOO MUCH ACID.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  So in turn many are popping acid neutralizers from over the counter source and prescriptions.  If your a bit confused on your digestive system, check this article out and I'll explain it better.   Here are some alternatives for acid reflux.  So many people are neutralizing stomach acid and are unable to absorb and utilize what little magnesium they eat and the magnesium they supplement with.

Due to poor absorption of magnesium because of the digestive system, DesBio answered that with their Liposomal delivery of Magnesium, it bypasses the digestive system and gets the magnesium to the cells.

Many drugs can cause a magnesium deficiency as well.

Drinking alcohol, diabetes both type 1 and type 2, any gastrointestinal problems including Crohn's and IBS, and excessive sweating cause you to lose magnesium at a higher rate.

So what can you do if you suspect you are low in magnesium?  And more than 50% of the population is.

  3. Get your sunshine to increase vitamin D levels.
  4. Include easily made naturally fermented foods like kefir, kombucha, real pickles (not commercial store bought), and home made yogurt.
