Shocking News of Magnesium?


Minerals hang out in the background keeping our bones, heart, brain and muscles working properly, that’s all…I say sarcastically. They are often ignored and sorely under appreciated by many, but not by Natural Heart Doctor!

Sadly, our soil no longer provides the nutrients we need to live optimally. The lack of minerals in soil as well as life’s stressors contribute to an epidemic of magnesium deficiency.

How do you know if you are deficient?

7 Warning Signs You Are Deficient in Magnesium:

  1. High Blood Pressure: Very simply, magnesium deficiency can contribute to high blood pressure and magnesium supplementation can normalize blood pressure as it contributes to the proper balance in minerals and relaxes and dilates blood vessels.
  2. Irregular Heartbeat: One of the most anxiety inducing consequences of a magnesium deficiency is an irregular heartbeat. We see a lot of irregular heartbeats and most of these individuals have low magnesium. If you are suffering from abnormal rhythm, include magnesium (Magne 5) in your daily supplementation.
  3. Atherosclerosis: Magnesium is a calcium antagonist; therefore, it inhibits or interferes with calcium action which protects against atherosclerosis. Adequate levels of magnesium help to prevent calcium deposition in the heart (calcium makes up atherosclerotic plaques), lower inflammation (a risk factor for atherosclerosis) and keep blood vessels elastic (thereby preventing blockages).
  4. Muscle Cramps, twitches and tremors: Mineral balance including use of magnesium is crucial for the proper contraction of muscles, including the heart muscle!
  5. Type II Diabetes: Diabetes is associated with magnesium deficiency. Magnesium plays a role in regulating insulin as it stimulates the uptake of glucose.  Low magnesium has also been related to the development of type II diabetes.
  6. Mood Disorders: Low magnesium can lead to apathy, depression and anxiety. It has been shown to regulate brain function and mood.
  7. Osteoporosis: Magnesium deficiency is a risk factor for osteoporosis. Lower magnesium levels are associated with lower bone mineral density. Magnesium also aids in activation of vitamin D, a key nutrient for bones.

Eating foods from the paleo diet that are rich in magnesium is so important, but you still may be deficient and will most likely need to supplement…most people do. You can test to discover if you are in need of this essential mineral. Our micronutrient test analyzes the level of micronutrients (like magnesium) that are in your blood and also the level in your cells (where these nutrients belong).

Supplement for the following benefits:

  • Reduces blood pressure and relaxes blood vessels
  • Regulates heart rate
  • Aids in proper formation of bones and teeth
  • Aids in blood sugar regulation
  • Needed for muscle and nerve function
  • Helps to synthesize DNA and RNA
  • Lowers inflammation
  • Assists in creating glutathione, the body’s master antioxidant
  • Required for functioning of hundreds of enzymes

Consider our Magne 5 supplement. This supplement contains five, highly absorbable different forms of magnesium to support health.  Taking Magne 5 helps to boost energy, support heart function, calm anxiety, promote sleep, aid in cognition and relieve constipation.

Magnesium supplements can interact with medications so be sure to check with your doctor before adding to your health regimen.
