Magnesium is one of the most abundant minerals from the crust of the earth. But, up to 80% of Americans are magnesium deficient...Are You?
Magnesium is the TRAFFIC COP of the vitamin, herbal and food world,
which says, Go here or there to ALL nutrients.
Rx Factor for magnesium deficiency: One of the leading researchers on magnesium deficiency found that many of the side effects of drugs are actually symptoms of magnesium deficiency. The drugs either increased the demand for magnesium in the body, or they depleted magnesium in the body.
According to the Physician’s Desk Reference
These common drugs can create a magnesium deficiency:
• Insulin • Digitalis • Birth control pills
• Cortisone • Tetracycline and other antibiotics
• Common diuretics and cardiac drugs
Early signs of magnesium deficiency include chronic constipation, headaches and migraines, insulin resistance, PMS, leg cramps, muscle twitches, tremors, muscle spasms, loss of muscle strength, personality changes, anorexia, nausea, and vomiting. Plus, if there’s no magnesium, then calcium builds up in the cells causing angina, arrhythmia, asthma, hypertension and headaches.
