February 2, 2019

Focus on Increasing Magnesium & Potassium Rich foods to feel better in your body!

 

 

You need magnesium rich foods to decrease body pain, alleviate PMS, boost performance, decrease inflammation, relieve  migraines, lower high blood pressure, improves diabetes and normalizes blood pressure, avoid Alzheimer’s, improve symptoms of ADHD, decrease depression, improve heart health, and enhance sleep.

 

Your body needs magnesium to make DNA, contract muscles, regulate blood pressure, synthesize protein, insulin metabolism, nerve transmission and reproduction: it used to prevent seizures in pregnant women as well as pre-eclampsia. RDA is 400-420 mg for men and 310-320 mg fro women daily; it’s estimated that less than 60% of Americans are meeting their magnesium need! Magnesium deficiency impedes the absorption of vitamin D and calcium.
