Bread, Coffee and Stress Is Enough To Cause Deficiency

Magnesium is necessary for more than 18,000 functions in the human body.

This video explains a few of them, and a few of the consequences if you're deficient. Depression is one symptom.

If your diet is high in carbs, and you have stress in your life (who doesn't?) that is enough to become magnesium deficient.

If you in addition have regular doses caffeine and alcohol in your life, you are likely to be deficient. Medications deplete you even further.

Though 65% of Americans are estimated to be deficient in magnesium, and despite thousands of medical references on how magnesium affects the body, we still don't think the take this simple supplement. Magnesium has largely been depleted through our processed foods diets, and is also drained from our bodies with caffeine, soda, alcohol, sugar and salt. As a result, we feel achy, stressed, cranky, and unable to relax or sleep. Millions have become dependent on sleeping pills and tranquilizers. But there is a very simple solution.

Supplement your diet with magnesium, and increase your intake of magnesium rich foods, such as kelp, wheat bran, pecans, almonds, cashews, dulce, millet, collard greens, figs, avocado, garlic and more.

Another great way to relax your muscles and absorb magnesium is to take an epsom salt bath.
