Healthy Bodies - Are you taking magnesium?


While on my journey to get physically healthy I have found several supplements that work for me.  I am in no way giving medical advice and you should always consult your physician, but right now I'm finding that magnesium is like a super power for me.  
In this article  Dr. Mark Hyman shares how this mineral was used in the ER


"I remember using magnesium when I worked in the emergency room. It was a critical “medication” on the crash cart. If someone was dying of a life-threatening arrhythmia (or irregular heart beat), we used intravenous magnesium. If someone was constipated or needed to prepare for colonoscopy, we gave them milk of magnesia or a green bottle of liquid magnesium citrate, which emptied their bowels. If pregnant women came in with pre-term labor, or high blood pressure of pregnancy (pre-eclampsia) or seizures, we gave them continuous high doses of intravenous magnesium."

Sometimes you don't really know if a supplement is making a difference until you stop taking it and that's what happened to me. I now try my best to not skip taking it each night. If you are struggling with stress, sleep, muscle cramps, anxiety or constipation - talk to your doctor about adding magnesium.
