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.

A Personal Testimonial

Screen-Shot-2019-06-10-at-11.41.03-AM-copy.pngI don’t often align myself with products but this is one that I just had to share! My name is Michelle Toole and I am the founder of Healthy-Holistic-Living.com.

Some of you may already know years ago, I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.

I can still recall what it felt like to have my life change overnight…

I went from an Executive Director of a non-profit organization, running marathons, rock climbing, hiking canyons and kayaking to being completely bedridden and staring at a wall for 15 hours a day.

Of course, I went to see many doctors but unfortunately I didn’t find the help I needed. So, I had to set off on my own journey to learn my true path to healing.

I’d pretty much turned-over every rock trying to find relief for my pain, sleep issues and myriad of other symptoms…

Fast-forward 18 years.

I was determined to climb one of the true wonders of the natural world, Machu Picchu, the mystical home of the Incas in Peru.

It was there, after a grueling day when my feet, knees, legs, and lower back hurt so bad, that I thought I would have to abandon hopes of our next climb which was Rainbow Mountain! That night I pulled out a little spray bottle of “aceite de magnesio” that a friend had given me before I left on my trip.

What the heck, I thought. I was desperate. And I applied it all over my body before bed.

Because of the grueling day, I woke up expecting to be immobilized, but instead we were off to climb Rainbow Mountain and…I was totally pain-free!

I know it sounds impossible, but it’s 1000% the truth.
