- A brilliant health challenge – try this and see how you feel after 60 days
- Why Britons are missing out on the ‘master nutrient’ – magnesium
- Do you get nausea, exhaustion, insomnia, restless legs, cramps, acid indigestion, cramps, low mood, dizziness, poor memory and anxiety? This could be why…
Imagine if there was one ingredient…
…that made all the difference to the way you felt on a day-to-day basis.
I’m talking about:
- Stronger bones and teeth
- More energy
- Better night’s sleep
- Happier mood
- Improved vision
- Stronger, more regular heartbeat
You’d be absolutely mad not to make absolutely sure it wasn’t in your diet every day, wouldn’t you?
Except this is the crazy situation we find ourselves in today in Britain.
According to the National Diet and Nutrition Survey in 2013, a startling 11% of women and 16% men are deficient in the nutrient that does all of the above.
It’s called magnesium, and if you’ve been a long-term reader, you’ll know that it’s something I talk about a lot.
For instance, two weeks ago I explained in The People’s Doctor that magnesium boosts your serotonin production which helps put your body into a sleepy state, giving you a good night’s rest.
And the week before that I talked about how magnesium helps increase the blood flow to your eyes, maintaining fluid balance in your cells.
But it does a whole lot more than that, keeping your heartbeat steady, improving muscle function, controlling levels of bad cholesterol, reducing pain and giving your whole body more energy.
In fact, magnesium is linked to over 300 metabolic processes, which is why it’s sometimes called the ‘master mineral’
You might even find that many of the niggling health problems you suffer (but the doctor hasn’t been able to diagnose) are actually symptoms of magnesium deficiency.
Examples include nausea, exhaustion, insomnia, restless legs, cramps, acid indigestion, cramps, low mood, dizziness, poor memory and anxiety.
If you’re sceptical, then take a look at the 60-Day FEEL MILES BETTER Challenge. This is a brilliant new innovation that gives you the opportunity to try out a magnesium supplement for two months so you can see proof that it makes a difference to your health. If not, you don’t have to pay for it – which is fair enough, right?
As well as this being a fantastic way to try something new out without risking your money, this is also our recommendation for a good quality source of magnesium. Because remember, not all supplements are the same!
The difficult alternative…
Of course, you can also get magnesium in your natural daily diet. There are high levels in the following foods:
- green leafy vegetables (Kale, spinach)
- Brown rice
- Nuts and seeds
- Wholegrain bread
- Seafood (mussels, oysters)
However, most of us simply don’t get enough of these ingredients into our diet. Okay, yes, we can eat more
brown rice and vegetables for a few weeks… and yes, we can feel guilty for a few days and stuff ourselves with Brazil nuts…
But can you keep this up for month after month?
Because that’s what you need to keep your levels topped up (around 320-420mg per day), which you can only do consistently with a supplement like this one.
And there are other challenges too…
The Great Nutrient Crisis
- Modern intensive farming methods have stripped vegetables of their nutrients. The magnesium content of vegetables has slumped by 80% since 1950. That’s an extraordinary figure, isn’t it?
- Chlorine is killing magnesium. And remember how I was talking about chlorine in swimming pools last week? Well, it’s used to treat drinking water too. And it is known to deplete the natural; magnesium in water.
- Our addictions and cravings damage our magnesium intake. According to research at the University of Maryland Medical Centre, having much salt, coffee and alcohol makes you go to the loo too much, which flushes more magnesium out of your body.
- Stressful busy lives are causing health problems. In Britain many of us work long hours while we worry about mortgages, austerity cuts and EU referendums and all the usual crises of family life. Stress causes the body to produce adrenaline and cortisol, which has been linked to decreased magnesium levels.
No wonder people aren’t getting enough of the master nutrient. It’s being robbed from us by modern life!
If you’re concerned about the effect which low levels of magnesium might have on your health, then I’d recommend the 60 day feel miles better challenge – see how you get on!
Until next time, stay healthy!
