3 Critical Reasons You Need Magnesium In Your Life

What's more important than Sleep, Mood and Health? Research is showing just how beneficial it can be for your entire well being. There are a multitude of uses for magnesium, and today we are going to talk about why you need magnesium and how incorporating more into your life can enhance three important everyday functions. Oh, and without the laxative effect.


  • #1 Mood
    Low magnesium levels have been linked to increased stress and anxiety, as well as depression. Magnesium is a vital element in the body, taking part in over 600 biochemical reactions. Psychiatrists say that by boosting your magnesium intake, you can in turn boost your mood!


  • #2 Muscle Cramps
    Magnesium is used by athletes everywhere to relax their muscles after the big game. Because of it’s ability to help regulate muscle contractions, it is often used for muscle cramps. With magnesium, sore muscles don’t stand a chance!


  • #3 Sleep
    Sleep is something everyone needs, and no one seems to get enough of. Getting a good night’s sleep is the gold standard because it affects your whole day. Not getting enough rest, or having a restless night can have serious implications. Low magnesium is linked to poor sleep, restless sleep, and even insomnia. Magnesium is vital to the quality and quantity of sleep!


These 3 things all have a tremendous impact on your life! If you are in a bad mood it’s going to be harder to relax, and if you can’t relax then sleep isn’t going to come as easily. Luckily, the solution is simple, and easy to incorporate into a self-care routine. (Which you need if you don’t have one!)

It sounds easy enough, so how can you do this without the laxative effect? It doesn’t involve taking any supplements, magnesium pills, or eating a salad every day for lunch. No, the way to include more magnesium in your life, is an easy routine that will aid in improving your mood, helping you to relax, and even get a good night's rest. Are you ready? The best way to add more magnesium into your life is to simply add some epsom salts or magnesium flakes to your bathwater. One of the most relaxing self care routines is to light some candles and take a warm bath! In order to reap the most magnesium salts or bath flakes benefits, and truly implement this self-care routine, it is imperative to create a relaxing atmosphere.
