According to recent research, 80% of Americans have a Magnesium Deficiency.
Here are the 8 signs you must take a look at.
The first warning sign that you are magnesium deficient is that if you have any form of
a headache, whether it’s a tension headache or a migraine headache that’s a big warning sign and one of the reasons is that magnesium really helps in relaxing muscles, it helps with overall cellular function, and so again, Magnesium is critical.
If you have a headache, had any type of a headache at all, consider getting more magnesium foods in your diet or taking a magnesium supplement, and at the end, I’ll share more with you about magnesium foods and supplements.
The number two sign that you have a magnesium deficiency is if you get muscle cramps.Now, a lot of the times people think that that’s potassium and it can be, but it’s also magnesium.
And so again, if you are an athlete or let’s say you’re laying [sic] in bed at night and you ever get muscle cramps or if you struggle with muscle cramps on a regular basis, you is magnesium deficient?
You really want to work on increasing both potassium intake and magnesium intake if you get muscle cramps.
The third warning sign that you’re magnesium deficient is if you have osteoporosis or if you have osteopenia or any type of weak muscles or weak bones or you get injured easily.
You know Magnesium is a major building block of your muscles.
And listen to this, a lot of people will go and take a calcium supplement without even taking a magnesium supplement for your body to even use calcium.
You have to have magnesium.
So again, magnesium, it’s critical for building strong bones.
So, it’s essential that children are getting magnesium rich foods, adults’, especially aging women, are getting magnesium foods and supplements on a regular basis.
The fourth warning sign that you are magnesium deficient is if you have diabetes or imbalanced blood sugar.
If you tend to eat something and then afterward you get really tired.
In fact, if you’re one of those people that hit the sort of two o’clock coma at work after lunch, that’s a big warning sign that you are magnesium deficient.
So, again if you have diabetes or you have low energy levels or even have adrenal fatigue, those are warning signs that you’re not getting enough magnesium in your diet.
The reason is that magnesium is a critical mineral for improving glucose absorption and really balancing out your blood sugar.
You really have to have magnesium for cellular function.
So, you’ve got to get more Magnesium in your diet so have a magnesium deficiency in your body.
The fifth warning sign, you may have high blood pressure.

The sixth warning sign that you have a magnesium deficiency is if you struggle with insomnia or not being able to sleep at night, and that includes both not being able to fall asleep or stay asleep during the night or even waking up early on a consistent basis.
You need magnesium for that.
If you do struggle with that, the best time to take magnesium is with dinner or right before bed in the evening.
The seventh warning sign you are magnesium deficient is if you struggle with anxiety and depression.
In fact, magnesium has been shown to help calm the body, the muscles, and help improve mood.
It is a vital mineral for overall mood. In fact, one of the things I’ve recommended to patients over time with anxiety is taking magnesium on a daily basis and they’ve seen great results.
That’s number eight.
And last but not least, would be muscle pain. That’s a sign that you’re magnesium deficient
as well. Things like fibromyalgia.

The reason is magnesium, even within minutes of taking it, it can start to relax your muscles. Also why it helps with migraine headaches.
