Dateline: Utopia, Texas

(UtopiaSilver.com) If there is one thing I wish every person would be aware of, it would be the miracle of magnesium and all that it does for our mental and physical health. When it comes to Magnesium, The U.S. Department of Agriculture says that about 60% of adults in the United States do not consume the estimated average requirement. What they don’t tell us is that this 60% is based on minimum daily estimates set by the Department of Agriculture are set terribly low, so actually the number is much higher.
Magnesium deficiency is often misdiagnosed because it does not show up in blood tests – only 1% of the body’s magnesium is stored in the blood. Dr. Norman Shealy’s stated, “Every known illness is associated with a magnesium deficiency” and that, “magnesium is the most critical mineral required for electrical stability of every cell in the body. A magnesium deficiency may be responsible for more diseases than any other nutrient.” That is a pretty powerful statement!
Magnesium is responsible for over 300 biochemical processes, so if you think that the amount of Magnesium you obtain from your food is sufficient without supplementation, then I would say thinking is for people who don’t know. Be sure by having it tested. When you do have it tested, aim to have optimum levels of Magnesium and not just meeting the minimum. Remember that even organic soils are depleted of minerals, and non-organic farming has virtually no nutrients in it. Furthermore, there are many ways in which Magnesium is lost from the body, e.g. alcohol, coffee, black tea, grains, soy, most pharmaceutical medicines, calcium supplements. The benefits of Magnesium are endless but to name a few; better sleep, relaxes the nervous system, remineralizes teeth, alkalines the body, lowers cancer risk, hydrates, and even helps reverse diabetes. This miraculous mineral can be absorbed by taking internally or by soaking your feet in epsom salt (magnesium sulfate) or magnesium chloride. Don’t just take my word for it, bring the miracle of magnesium into your life today and notice the difference it makes in your overall well being.
