The Magnesium Fix

Here are some interesting notes on magnesium from the book The Mineral Fix

Vitamin D supplementation is necessary for most people, but taking too much can be harmful. Not only can it lead to kidney stones, but it can also pull down magnesium levels. An optimal amount of vitamin D is best. Check out Back-to-School Supplements for more information.

The saying “You are what you eat” is not accurate. It should be “You are what you eat, digest, absorb, and assimilate!” Stomach acid production drops as you age which lowers your mineral levels (especially magnesium) because you can’t absorb what you don’t digest. Our Digestion Formula can help.

Filtering water is a smart thing to do, but often you strip out essential minerals in the process. You should put those minerals back by adding salt to your water. It’s one of the best ways to increase your mineral levels on a daily basis. Learn more in my book Lean and Mean: Fat-Loss and Muscle-Building Strategies for Men and Women.

Many people are experiencing migraines these days due to the higher humidity and temperature. Magnesium at 300 mg per day may help.

If you have a true magnesium deficiency (and many people do), you’ll need to take at least 600 mg every day for a month and then recheck your levels. It’s best to spread out the dose throughout the day for better absorption. Our Magnesium Formula has 150 mg of magnesium per capsule. Take 1 with breakfast, lunch, dinner, and before bed to get 600 mg a day.

As Dr. Mark Hyman puts it, “Anything that is tight, irritable, crampy, and stiff – whether it is a body part or an even a mood – is a sign of magnesium deficiency.” Now you know how to fix it!
