Do you suffer from fatigue or get tired after a small session of workout or even after climbing few stairs? Low stamina could be the reason, and along with it Inadequate Magnesium intake or Magnesium deficiency could also be the reason of getting tired very soon.

Did you ever knew the benefits of Magnesium in our body? If No, then have a look at the stupendous work of this magical nutrient :

1. Regenerates Energy :

Magnesium Boosts your energy levels and plays a great role while workout. Magnesium triggers Energy generation in the body by activating ATP or Adenosine Triphosphate. ATP is the primary energy carrier in all living organisms. Thus Magnesium also helps in improving performances in Athletes, sports players. A great supplement to overcome fatigue.

Did you know the benefits of Saw palmetto herb?

2. Helps in Bio chemical reactions in our Body :

Every small cell in our body needs Magnesium to function properly. It is a very important mineral required for many Bio Chemical reactions happening in our bodies like :

  1. Formation of Proteins from Amino Acids
  2. Muscle Contractions and relaxation
  3. Regulating Neurotransmitters for Functional Nervous System
  4. Muscle and Energy Formation

3. Helps cure Anxiety and Depression :

Magnesium deficiency activates that part of the brain which controls Stress and Anxiety. It helps in production of Happy hormones and hence is used as a mood elevator. Magnesium is must for some hormones which result in calming and relaxation of the brain and thus its deficiency is many times linked to depression as well.  Supplementing with Magnesium Citrate can result in lowering of Depression and Anxiety.

4. Better Sleep for Insomniacs :

Magnesium supplements as mentioned above, help in calming the mind and thus provides better sleep. It is more so effective for people suffering from Insomnia and improves sleep quality.

5. Prevents Migraine :

I have seen people closely suffering from Migraine, its really painful when it brings along nausea. Since, Magnesium has an important role in the functioning of neurotransmitters, it helps reducing the pain as it releases pain reducing hormones.

6. Lowers Blood pressure :

Benefits of Magnesium supplements can be seen in people with High B.P. It has a great effect in reducing systolic and diastolic blood pressure for those suffering from High Blood Pressure.

7. Relaxes Body and reduces spasms :

Magnesium has an important role in Neurotransmitter functions along with the Muscle contractions. Hence Magnesium supplements can help very effectively to muscular cramps, pains, weaknesses. It helps in muscle relaxation and also reduces the pain.

8. Heart health :

Since our heart has the highest amount of Magnesium , this mineral is of utmost importance. It works with calcium to maintain proper Blood Pressure. Misbalance of Magnesium to calcium can lead to heart attacks due to sudden spasms. Hence if one is taking calcium supplements, it is must to keep Magnesium balance as well.

9. Relieves Constipation :

By now, we already know that Magnesium is a muscle relaxant. But it also neutralises the excess acidity in the stomach. These two functions helps in relaxing the intestinal wall muscles and helps stool to move easily through intestines, thus helping in relieving Constipation.

10. Insulin Resistance and helps in Type II Diabetes :

A low Magnesium intake has shown to be directly proportional to the risk of Diabetes. Magnesium deficiency hampers the Blood sugar levels directly. Magnesium thus helps in Insulin resistance and reduces Blood sugar levels.

It also has Anti -Inflammatory benefits, reduces Premenstrual syndrome (very common syndrome affecting Child birth) , helps during Asthma as well!

    this is another interesting discovery to me… having diabetes, i often have mood swings which ends up with stress and depression. Now, I just learned that Magnesium plays a big part of reducing depression. I wonder what are the foods that are rich in Magnesium (might need to search the web for that)… this supplement is very interesting and I might give it a try someday

  2. Ana De-Jesus

    I have fatigue and get bad migraines sometimes so I had no idea that magnesium citrate could alleviate similar symptoms. Its good to know that it can also boost your mood and help with depression, so I will have to do some more research into that!

    I started to be aware of the importance of magnesium supplement when I was pregnant. I had muscle contractions so often that I couldn’t sleep. When I started using magnesium more often, it was a life saver.
