Magnesium and Deficiency

"Most people who are overweight, insulin resistant and/or hypertensive or diabetic are deficient in magnesium." - Dr. Michael Eades, M.D. 

  • Roughly 70 percent of people don't get the minimum recommended daily intake of magnesium.
  • A Gallup poll showed adults over the age of fifty-five in the U.S. tend to fall below the Recommended Dietary Allowance of magnesium. 
  • 79 percent of respondents in the Gallup poll over the age of fifty-five reported not eating enough magnesium-rich foods. 
  • One way you significantly lower your magnesium levels is by drinking soft and diet drinks. 
  • Low magnesium levels can cause sudden cardiac death, hardening of the arteries, increase inflammation in the body, make the heart muscle irritable and seizures.
  • To make them work properly, approximately three hundred or more of our enzymes require magnesium as a co-factor. 
  • Replenishing magnesium can get rid of many food cravings. 
  • A magnesium deficiency can also cause insomnia. 
  • Spinach, broccoli and alfalfa leaf contain high levels of magnesium, as well as other dark green vegetables
