More specifically, you want help with Eat More Magnesium Foods and You’ll Feel a Lot Better?
so this video is on magnesium and why you’re gonna feel a lot better if you get enough from your diet and if you go to the doctor and you get a blood test and your magnesium deficient it’s not going to show up because 99% of that magnesium is inside the cell not outside the cell in your blood so just because it comes out normal doesn’t mean you’re not deficient there’s something called a subclinical deficiency where you might be getting enough to run the basic machinery of the body but you’re not getting the full amount to run all of the functions and as far as magnesium there are over 300 enzymes involved in many different biochemical reactions that require magnesium so out of all the minerals magnesium is the second most important to potassium why well simply because you need a lot of potassium ideally you you need 300 to 400 milligrams now potassium you need like 4700 milligrams that’s 4700 milligrams every single day so obviously with magnesium you need much less but if we compare these minerals to all the other ones you need both of these in pretty large quantities 90% of all the magnesium is located in the muscle in the bone and I did mention this before but 99% of all this magnesium is inside the cell not outside the cell so if you’re deficient you may have bone problems like osteopenia eventually osteoporosis you can have a lot of muscle cramps weak muscles and also realize that certain parts of the vascular system have a type of muscle as well so if you’re losing magnesium your muscles can get stiff and you’re gonna get high blood pressure from that another really key function of magnesium is maintaining electrical charge in your cells so without magnesium the electrical system shuts down and you just don’t have enough energy to run the muscles or the nervous system so magnesium is really important in keeping sodium outside the cell keeping sodium low inside the cell and keeping calcium low inside the cell and keeping potassium high inside the cell so we have these diff Minerals kept apart by this membrane and they all work together to form this battery so potassium is involved in this battery also generating energy in the body through it’s called ATP it’s involved in making DNA and proteins and overall cell integrity so you can imagine if you don’t have enough magnesium you’re just not going to feel quite right another symptom of a magnesium deficiency which is subclinical which means it’s not going to show up on a test is vascular calcification so calcium and magnesium work together so it’s not just about taking too much calcium it could be a deficiency of magnesium it could also be a deficiency in vitamin k2 and the two main ways that you’re deficient in magnesium are number one consuming too many refined foods okay I find carbohydrates like the bread pasta cereal crackers biscuits waffles pancakes muffins juice sugar as well as just not consuming enough magnesium rich foods as in leafy greens okay I mean the average person will consume about I think it’s at 1.5 cups of vegetables per day that’s pathetic you need at least seven hopefully 10 cups per day in the hunter/gatherer time Paleolithic time they estimated that an average human consumed 600 milligrams of magnesium per day versus the average person consumes only 200 to 260 milligrams on average okay the RDAs being 300 to 420 which are not even close to this so we are really really deficient in magnesium if you don’t feel quite right you don’t have enough energy just increase the amount of magnesium in your diet for one week and prove it to yourself and it did create several other videos of magnesium that you can check out on this page

Today we’re going to talk about magnesium and why you may feel a lot better if you start eating more magnesium foods.
If you go to the doctor, and you have a magnesium deficiency, it won’t show up in a blood test. This is because 99% of that magnesium is inside of the cell, not outside of the cell in the blood. Just because the test is normal, doesn’t mean you’re not deficient. There is something called a subclinical deficiency where you might have some magnesium, but not the full amount.
There are over 300 enzymes that are involved in many different biochemical reactions that require magnesium.
Out of all of the minerals, magnesium is the second most important to potassium. You need both of these in pretty large quantities. 90% of the magnesium is located in the muscles and bones. If you have low magnesium, you may have bone problems and problems with the muscles like muscle cramps, muscle weakness, or muscle stiffness. Another key function of magnesium is maintaining electrical charge in the cells.
Another symptom of a subclinical magnesium deficiency is vascular calcification. Calcium and magnesium work together. It’s not just about taking too much calcium. It could be a deficiency in magnesium or a deficiency in vitamin K2.
The two main causes of a magnesium deficiency:
1. Consuming too many refined foods
2. Not consuming enough foods high in magnesium
If you don’t feel quite right or you don’t have enough energy, consider increasing your magnesium intake for one week and see what happens.
