Magnesium and Your Immune system

HHL(35).png

What if I told you there was a mineral out there that’s as essential as protein that most people neglect in their diets - without even realizing it - and get sick as a result? Well, it’s true, and that mineral is known as magnesium.

What Is Magnesium?

Magnesium is a crucial mineral your body needs in order to function properly. Without it, a number of potential side effects can begin to take place. If a deficiency is not addressed, more serious health consequences can ensue.

Magnesium is important. Magnesium is important not only for your bone structure, but for nerve and muscle function, heart health, blood glucose levels, energy and protein production, and over 300 other biochemical reactions in the body. It’s no wonder your body reacts so seriously when it’s lacking this particular mineral.

Symptoms Of Low Magnesium

When your body is low in magnesium, you may begin to experience symptoms such as:

  • Muscle twitching and cramping
  • Mental/emotional problems (depression, anxiety, etc.)
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle weakness
  • Irregular heartbeat
  • Nausea/loss of appetite
  • Vomiting

If the deficiency doesn’t get remedied and continues to progress it can lead to more serious concerns, such as:

  • Hypoglycemia (low calcium levels in blood)
  • Hypokalemia (low potassium levels in blood)
  • Numbness and tingling in extremities
  • Muscle contractions
  • Seizures
  • Personality changes
  • Coronary spasms

Beyond those symptoms, a severe deficiency in magnesium can also lead to more intense conditions such as heart disease, osteoporosis, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, etc.

Sounds pretty serious, right? For these reasons and more, magnesium should definitely be on your radar and in your system. We have a wonderful product to help you do just that! But before we get to that, let’s first discuss the part of your body that receives an interesting impact from your intake (or lack thereof) of magnesium: your immune system.

How Magnesium Boosts Your Immune System

Magnesium clearly has a profound impact on your overall health. But one aspect of its impact on the body that has spiked interest in researchers is the immune system. Magnesium, specifically magnesium chloride is shown to not just support the body’s immune system, but strengthen it. It can help stimulate and increase efficiency in combating illness and disease.

Without magnesium, studies have found your body’s natural immune responses can be negatively impacted. On the flip side, they have also shown that having sufficient amounts of magnesium in your system can boost natural immune responses and have some involvement in reducing inflammation, apoptosis, etc. Magnesium has also shown to play a role in oxidative stress, which can have a large negative impact on your immune system if not properly managed.

There’s still research that needs to be done in order to really place a finger on what it is that gives magnesium its fascinating effect on your immune system. But it has become clear that it does have a worthwhile impact and we can be sure that your immune system - and your overall health - does much better with magnesium than without.
