What is magnesium? Magnesium is a mineral that our body desperately needs, and is very hard to take too much of. It helps keep blood pressure normal, regulate heart rhythm, and reduce inflammation in the body.
It also is a natural relaxant. If you have ever been told to soak in epsom salt for an injury or sore muscle, that is just a chemical compound of magnesium! The way that it can externally relax your body is the same as how magnesium supplements can relax us internally.
What other ways is magnesium beneficial for our bodies?
- Helps convert food into energy
- Helps create and repair DNA and RNA
- Helps regulate neurotransmitters, which send messages throughout your brain and nervous system
- Is known to help boost mood and lower depression
- Has been proven to reduce migraines and pms symptoms
- It can help you sleep
What is crazy is that almost 50% of people are deficient in magnesium.
Magnesium can be taken so many ways, it is found in foods such as dark chocolate and swiss chard. However, I prefer to take it as a beverage before bed each night! This raspberry lemon magnesium powder can be mixed into hot or cold water and is made to help you relax from the inside out.
There are so many variations of magnesium supplements, gummies, and drink mixes, so it is easy to find the best one for your lifestyle! It is an easy mineral to incorporate into daily routine and comes in great flavors too!
