Medical doctor and naturopath Carolyn Dean is obsessed with magnesium. In fact, she calls it the “spark of life.”
And for good reason.
You see, magnesium is crucial to health — so much so that at least 65 different diseases and health issues have now been linked to insufficient levels of this essential mineral.
Here’s just a small sample:
- Heart disease and heart attacks
- High blood pressure
- Heart arrhythmias
- Parkinson’s disease
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Bowel disease
- Depression and anxiety
- Migraines and tension headaches
- Muscle cramps and back pain
- Heartburn and acid reflux
The highest concentrations of magnesium in the body are found in the heart and brain, so it’s little wonder that magnesium depletion leads to problems in these two vital organs.
Perhaps you’re skeptical that you — or your loved ones — could really be low in magnesium. You may eat well and even take vitamins.
Unfortunately, that’s not enough anymore.
Sound scientific research shows that up to 80% of us suffer from an undiagnosed magnesium deficiency that puts our health at risk.
It shouldn’t really be surprising. After all, our dietary intake of magnesium has declined continually over the last century.
7 Key Reasons Why You Could Suffer
From Magnesium Deficiency
As a population, we have many reasons for our insufficient magnesium levels. Here are just seven of them:
- Our soil has been magnesium-depleted for decades, and the situation continues to worsen.
- Our diets are loaded with processed foods and sugar, which drain essential magnesium reserves.
- Chronic stress elevates the hormone adrenaline, which further depletes your magnesium levels.
- Drinking coffee, tea, and alcohol leads to even more magnesium depletion.
- Fluoridated drinking water renders magnesium unavailable to the body — and much of our bottled and tap water has been stripped of minerals, including magnesium.
- Many pharmaceutical drugs burn off your stores of magnesium.
- Last but not least, aging is also a risk factor for magnesium deficiency.
Magnesium performs hundreds of functions in the body — over 700 of them at last count.
Researchers believe its most important function is cellular energy production.
The enzyme ATP, created in the mitochondria of each body cell, is our main source of cellular energy. ATP must be bound to a magnesium ion to be biologically active. Unfortunately, most people just don’t have enough magnesium ions available.
Tired? Headaches? ‘Charley Horses’?
Because magnesium is so essential to body energy production, one common symptom of magnesium depletion is fatigue — from the inside of your body, from the cells themselves.
Other common symptoms include headaches, insomnia, and muscle pain.
Many folks running low on magnesium suffer from cramps and muscle spasms. If you’ve experienced those “charley horses” when your calf or other muscles cramp up, you know how excruciating they can be.
And that’s just the minor stuff . . .
The Arrhythmia Award Goes to . . .
Dr. Dean often tells patients, “You don’t have a heart problem; you have a magnesium problem.”
Recently, Dr. Dean was given an award from the U.K.’s Heart Rhythm Society for her contributions highlighting the role of magnesium in the treatment of arrhythmias.
This includes the condition atrial fibrillation (AFib), an irregular heartbeat that can lead to blood clots, stroke, heart failure, and other heart problems.
And arrhythmias are only one of several heart-related conditions related to magnesium levels.
Just as magnesium prevents muscle spasms in your legs, it also prevents muscle spasms in your heart that could cause a heart attack.
Those who already suffer from heart disease can also benefit from supplementing with magnesium.
One analysis of seven major clinical studies found that magnesium reduced the odds of dying by an astounding 55% in those who’d suffered a heart attack.
Plus, magnesium prevents spasms in the peripheral blood vessels, which can help stop high blood pressure.
Magnesium also helps dissolve the fatty plaques in arteries. This can help you avoid clogged arteries, heart attack, and even stroke.
Magnesium Is a Powerful Anti-Inflammatory
One reason magnesium is such a godsend for preventing and improving chronic disease is because it acts as a powerful anti-inflammatory agent.
Sufficient magnesium can calm inflammation at every stage — and is a much safer and cheaper solution than anti-inflammatory drugs.
In Dr. Dean’s book
The Magnesium Miracle,
you will find help for many chronic diseases and conditions linked to inflammation.
“Dr. Carolyn Dean has the best credentials for bringing solutions to those suffering from the hidden magnesium disorder that affects most of us. This book needs to be read by anyone wishing to improve their quality of life.”
— Stephen Sinatra, M.D.
Take Alzheimer’s, for example. Magnesium blocks the inflammation caused by deposits of calcium and other substances in brain cells.
And with arthritis, magnesium not only treats pain and inflammation, but also helps dissolve the calcium that builds up in joint spaces.
Research also demonstrates that a higher intake of magnesium is associated with a lower risk of certain cancers.
Studies have demonstrated that magnesium can prevent and treat diabetes and diabetic symptoms. If you or a loved one suffer from this condition, you should know that diabetics both need more magnesium and lose more than non-diabetics.
You’d think doctors would educate patients about the importance of magnesium to good health.
Sadly, doctors don’t learn much at all about nutrition in medical school. And if it doesn’t come from Big Pharma, physicians don’t usually even consider it in their treatment protocols.
Yet more and more people are becoming aware of the crucial role simple and inexpensive magnesium plays in maintaining good health. In fact, magnesium is now the fastest-rising product on the supplement market.
Do NOT Run Out and Buy Magnesium Today
Unfortunately, the solution is not as easy as walking into your local drug or grocery store and picking up a bottle of magnesium pills.
Magnesium comes in several different forms, some of which are ineffective, hard to absorb, or even toxic to your body. And quality is also a big issue.
While magnesium is one of the safest nutrients you can take, you need to know what you’re doing to optimize your magnesium levels for better health. That’s why Dr. Dean’s book is indispensable.
