Kicking off this year with a beautiful start!

Last two years were ‘ugh’! – totally floored me. I had horrible leg cramps, felt fatigued and those frequent migraines felt like a symphony of jackhammers in my head. Seriously, girls carrying and caring for a child is no joke. I didn’t anticipate being this stressed out but I had been really anxious – like, ridiculously anxious!

I didn’t know it was such an easy problem to solve, until, while casually chatting up with a friend one fine evening, she suggested it could be all due to some deficiency. The next day I researched on the net and found that all my cramping, headaches and anxiety issues were symptoms of magnesium deficiency.

The more I researched, the more I got convinced regarding my low magnesium levels.

Why magnesium?

Because magnesium is the eighth most abundant mineral on earth, third most abundant in sea water and fourth most abundant mineral in human body. But more importantly, it isn’t just one of the most abundant mineral in human body, it is one of the most significant one as well.

Symptoms of magnesium deficiencyHere’s an interesting article on the net that explains the importance of magnesium in our body:

“Every single cell in the human body demands adequate magnesium to function, or it will perish. Strong bones and teeth, balanced hormones, a healthy nervous and cardiovascular system, well functioning detoxification pathways and much more depend upon cellular magnesium sufficiency. Soft tissue containing the highest concentrations of magnesium in the body include the brain and the heart—two organs that produce a large amount of electrical activity, and which can be especially vulnerable to magnesium insufficiency.”

So even a minor magnesium deficiency can lead to serious calcium imbalance in the body, which further results in problems like heart trouble, migraine, muscle cramps, stress and anxiety. Since, as low as only 1% of magnesium levels are found in blood, deficiency is often determined by symptoms alone than by a blood test.

Also, since most farming practices have depleted the soil of its natural magnesium and our modern day dietary and lifestyle choices such as consumption of high sugar, caffeine, alcohol, and processed foods further deplete this natural mineral from our bodies, it is not surprising to know that more than 80% adults today suffer from magnesium deficiency.

But the good news is just as widespread is magnesium deficiency, it is as easy to treat. All you need to do is just increase your magnesium intake or take magnesium supplements. And so I started taking Zenith Nutrition Magnesium Citrate capsules from last month.

Supplement Information:

“Magnesium is a major factor in relaxing the smooth muscles within the blood vessels, thereby reducing peripheral vascular resistance and promoting a healthy cardiovascular system. Magnesium also affects circulating levels of norepinephrine and the synthesis of serotonin and nitric oxide.

 Magnesium helps to regulate calcium transport and absorption. By stimulating the secretion of calcitonin, it aids the influx of calcium into bone and promotes optimal bone mineralization. Along with ATP, magnesium supports cellular energy metabolism. It also supports nerve and muscle function. This formulation provides magnesium citrate, a highly absorbable form of this important mineral.”

My Experience with Zenith Nutrition Magnesium Citrate Capsules

True magnesium is an abundant mineral and we do get enough magnesium from good, balanced diet but also true is the fact that we sometimes lose magnesium faster than it can be replaced by food.  Dark leafy greens, nuts, seeds, fish, beans, whole grains, avocados, yogurt, bananas, dried fruit, dark chocolate etc. are all good food sources of magnesium.

But if you have a deficiency it becomes difficult to raise your levels with diet alone. Also since magnesium is such an important nutrient that is used for hundred different processes of the body, it’s worth to supplement. And the best way, I have found is by taking Zenith Nutrition Magnesium Citrate capsules.

Zenith Nutrition Magnesium Citrate Capsules ReviewThe instruction on the bottle says to take 3 capsules daily with meals but my dietician advised me to begin with two capsules a day after dinner with a glass of milk. It’s been almost one month, I’m taking magnesium supplements and all I can say is the gnargly migraines I used to get often have all but disappeared.

Besides, taking magnesium supplements have also improved my sleep, my skin, and my digestion. No wonder, it’s called the ‘master mineral’ for the body. Magnesium Citrate is one of the most highly absorbable form of the mineral and hence these capsules are perfect for boosting health and overall wellness.

So if you feel you are low in magnesium, you can certainly check out these supplements. Following are the symptoms of magnesium deficiency:

  • Irritability
  • Sensitivity to noise
  • Anxiety, depression or restlessness
  • Muscle cramps

    I didn’t know that magnesium – or the lack of — could be linked to fatigue and cramps and even irritability… that’s good to know, and I feel tired many times, maybe it’s lack of magnesium! Hope you have a nice day!
