Many of us may have heard of magnesium in Wayland MI, but more than likely are not aware that we may be deficient in it; in fact, magnesium is currently the number 2 vitamin/mineral deficiency in the US with 70% of women being deficient and 80% of men.

Why Magnesium in Wayland MI?

When your body is under stress, it quickly depletes its stores of magnesium and we all know that people are under more stress than ever before. When someone is deficient in magnesium, it can affect their body in multiple different ways. This happens because your body needs magnesium to maintain healthy nerves, muscles, and bones. Magnesium also helps in protein synthesis and cellular metabolism. It is necessary for absorbing calcium and plays an important role in the formation and strengthening of teeth and bones. When someone is deficient in magnesium, it can contribute to neck and back pain, anxiety, fatigue, headaches, muscle tightness and spasms, nausea, insomnia, and abnormal heart rhythm.

Benefits of Magnesium

Magnesium has even been shown to prevent asthma, keep bones healthy, reduce back pain and cramps, prevent heart attack, prevent constipation, prevent diabetes and regulate sugar levels, reduce migraines, and control bladder functions. You can make sure you are ingesting enough magnesium through supplementation or by eating foods high in magnesium. Some of those foods include dark chocolate, dark leafy vegetables, almonds, sunflower seeds, flaxseeds, pecans, salmon, avocado, and bananas. The average adult should be consuming at least 350mg of magnesium per day and most of the time we do not consume nearly that amount of magnesium. A great way to consume additional magnesium is through supplementation. Two great products are Natural Calm from Nature's Vitality and Myocalm from Metagenics. Both are carried at House Family Chiropractic, PC.
