Magnesium: The Mighty Mineral for Total Wellness

Magnesium is like a superhero mineral in the world of functional medicine, playing a key role in keeping our bodies healthy and strong. It's involved in over 500 different processes in the body, which means it pretty much has a hand in everything, from how our muscles work to keeping our hearts beating steadily.

Think of magnesium as a multitasker that keeps everything running smoothly. It helps our minds stay calm and promotes restful sleep, which are essential for feeling good day-to-day. It's also great for our muscles, including the most important one, our heart, helping to keep our heartbeat regular and our blood pressure in check. Plus, it works with calcium to make sure our bones are strong and healthy. For those watching their blood sugar or managing diabetes, magnesium is a key player in keeping those levels balanced.

But that's not all – magnesium is also a detox pro. It helps our body get rid of toxins and even heavy metals, which can sneak into our bodies from the environment and the foods we eat. It gives a boost to our liver, the main organ in charge of cleaning up these toxins, and helps make glutathione, a super-important antioxidant that protects our cells from damage and helps in the cleanup process. By doing all this, magnesium not only helps keep our bodies clean but also supports our overall health and helps us fight off diseases. So, making sure we have enough magnesium is key to feeling our best and staying healthy. And usually we don't get enough from our diets, so I frequently recommend magnesium supplements. Which one is best for you depends on your health goals. Watch my video here to figure out which type of magnesium is right for you.
