Why Magnesium is Important for Sleep and Gut issues

If you have a magnesium deficiency, introducing magnesium into your supplement regimen can make such a difference to your gut that supports brain and blood functioning.  Magnesium Citrate is a mineral supplement used to prevent and treat low amounts of magnesium in the blood. Today we know almost everyone can be deficient.

7 Signs and Symptoms of Magnesium Deficiency

  • Magnesium deficiency, also known as hypomagnesemia, is an often overlooked health problem.
  • Muscle Twitches and Cramps.
  • Mental Disorders.
  • Fatigue and Muscle Weakness.
  • High Blood Pressure.Irregular Heartbeat.

What the regular use of Magnesium can help with:

  • Calms nervousness and anxiety in the gut
  • Help the heart muscle palpitations
  • Reduces stress headaches
  • Assists in the reduction of high blood pressure
  • Calms the mind
  • Helps with muscle cramps at night and during the day
  • Decreases cravings
  • Balances blood sugar levels

Reduced magnesium in the body has been linked to insulin resistance that could lead to weight gain.  People with fatty liver disease are at high risk of magnesium deficiency. Meanwhile, low magnesium status is linked to both chronic inflammation and insulin resistance.

  • Supports constipation

Magnesium citrate is a saline laxative that is thought to work by increasing fluid in the small intestine.  It should produce a bowel movement within 30 minutes to 6 hours after you take the supplement.

  • Aids sleep

Better sleep. Insomnia is a common symptom of magnesium deficiency. People with low magnesium often experience restless sleep, waking frequently during the night. Research indicates supplemental magnesium can improve sleep quality, especially in people with poor sleep.

Daily Supplementation:

If you are taking magnesium citrate powder as a supplement, how much you should take depends on your age and sex:

 

Men ages 19 to 30 should take 400 milligrams (mg) a day,

Men over age 30 should take 420 mg.

Women up to 50 years of age should take 310 mg a day.

 

This is how you take Magnesium Citrate powder:

Starting with one teaspoon in water will give you 400mg.  But you need to build up to the dosage YOU need – from 200-800mg until you develop loose stools (called bowel tolerance levels) and then you cut back slightly.  That will be the dose you need.  You keep increasing the dosage till you reach bowel tolerance level and your symptoms disappear.  Some people have much higher needs than others.

Different Magnesium supplements offer different outcomes; I have found the magnesium citrate is the best for most clients.

Here is a list of other Magnesium’s in the market:

  • Magnesium citrate. Easily absorbed by the body and also used to treat constipation.
  • Magnesium glycinate. Often used to reduce muscle pain.
  • Magnesium oxide. Commonly used to treat migraines and constipation it is poorly absorbed, and hence likely to cause diarrhea.
  • Magnesium chloride. ...
  • Magnesium sulfate (Epsom salt).
  • Magnesium lactate.

  • Hi, Eric here with a quick thought about your website glowonhealth.co.za…

    I’m on the internet a lot and I look at a lot of business websites.

    Like yours, many of them have great content.

    But all too often, they come up short when it comes to engaging and connecting with anyone who visits.

    I get it – it’s hard. Studies show 7 out of 10 people who land on a site, abandon it in moments without leaving even a trace. You got the eyeball, but nothing else.

    Here’s a solution for you…

    Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. You’ll know immediately they’re interested and you can call them directly to talk with them literally while they’re still on the web looking at your site.

    CLICK HERE http://www.talkwithwebvisitors.com to try out a Live Demo with Talk With Web Visitor now to see exactly how it works.

    It could be huge for your business – and because you’ve got that phone number, with our new SMS Text With Lead feature, you can automatically start a text (SMS) conversation – immediately… and contacting someone in that 5 minute window is 100 times more powerful than reaching out 30 minutes or more later.

    Plus, with text messaging you can follow up later with new offers, content links, even just follow up notes to keep the conversation going.

    Everything I’ve just described is extremely simple to implement, cost-effective, and profitable.

  • Good day,

    My name is Eric and unlike a lot of emails you might get, I wanted to instead provide you with a word of encouragement – Congratulations

    What for?

    Part of my job is to check out websites and the work you’ve done with glowonhealth.co.za definitely stands out.

    It’s clear you took building a website seriously and made a real investment of time and resources into making it top quality.

    There is, however, a catch… more accurately, a question…

    So when someone like me happens to find your site – maybe at the top of the search results (nice job BTW) or just through a random link, how do you know?

    More importantly, how do you make a connection with that person?

    Studies show that 7 out of 10 visitors don’t stick around – they’re there one second and then gone with the wind.

    Here’s a way to create INSTANT engagement that you may not have known about…

    Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It lets you know INSTANTLY that they’re interested – so that you can talk to that lead while they’re literally checking out glowonhealth.co.za.

    CLICK HERE http://www.talkwithwebvisitors.com to try out a Live Demo with Talk With Web Visitor now to see exactly how it works.

    It could be a game-changer for your business – and it gets even better… once you’ve captured their phone number, with our new SMS Text With Lead feature, you can automatically start a text (SMS) conversation – immediately (and there’s literally a 100X difference between contacting someone within 5 minutes versus 30 minutes.)

    Plus then, even if you don’t close a deal right away, you can connect later on with text messages for new offers, content links, even just follow up notes to build a relationship.

    Everything I’ve just described is simple, easy, and effective.

  • Hey, my name’s Eric and for just a second, imagine this…

    - Someone does a search and winds up at glowonhealth.co.za.

    - They hang out for a minute to check it out. “I’m interested… but… maybe…”

    - And then they hit the back button and check out the other search results instead.

    - Bottom line – you got an eyeball, but nothing else to show for it.

    - There they go.

    This isn’t really your fault – it happens a LOT – studies show 7 out of 10 visitors to any site disappear without leaving a trace.

    But you CAN fix that.

    Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It lets you know right then and there – enabling you to call that lead while they’re literally looking over your site.

    Time is money when it comes to connecting with leads – the difference between contacting someone within 5 minutes versus 30 minutes later can be huge – like 100 times better!

    Plus, now that you have their phone number, with our new SMS Text With Lead feature you can automatically start a text (SMS) conversation… so even if you don’t close a deal then, you can follow up with text messages for new offers, content links, even just “how you doing?” notes to build a relationship.

    Strong stuff.

  • Hey there, I just found your site, quick question…

    My name’s Eric, I found glowonhealth.co.za after doing a quick search – you showed up near the top of the rankings, so whatever you’re doing for SEO, looks like it’s working well.

    So here’s my question – what happens AFTER someone lands on your site? Anything?

    Research tells us at least 70% of the people who find your site, after a quick once-over, they disappear… forever.

    That means that all the work and effort you put into getting them to show up, goes down the tubes.

    Why would you want all that good work – and the great site you’ve built – go to waste?

    Because the odds are they’ll just skip over calling or even grabbing their phone, leaving you high and dry.

    But here’s a thought… what if you could make it super-simple for someone to raise their hand, say, “okay, let’s talk” without requiring them to even pull their cell phone from their pocket?

    You can – thanks to revolutionary new software that can literally make that first call happen NOW.

    Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that sits on your site, ready and waiting to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It lets you know IMMEDIATELY – so that you can talk to that lead while they’re still there at your site.

    You know, strike when the iron’s hot!

    When targeting leads, you HAVE to act fast – the difference between contacting someone within 5 minutes versus 30 minutes later is huge – like 100 times better!

    That’s why you should check out our new SMS Text With Lead feature as well… once you’ve captured the phone number of the website visitor, you can automatically kick off a text message (SMS) conversation with them.

    Imagine how powerful this could be – even if they don’t take you up on your offer immediately, you can stay in touch with them using text messages to make new offers, provide links to great content, and build your credibility.

    Just this alone could be a game changer to make your website even more effective.

    Strike when the iron’s hot!
