Magnesium is one of the most vital minerals that our body needs. Every cell in our body uses magnesium in some way and a magnesium deficiency can have a huge number of symptoms, including:
- muscle weakness
- lack of concentration
- poor memory
- headaches and migraines
- cravings for junk food
- low sex drive
- high blood pressure
If you suffer from some of these symptoms, it’s likely that you are suffering from a lack of magnesium and are in need of replenishing those levels.
There are many ways in which you can do this, firstly by making some small lifestyle changes like drinking less alcohol, give up smoking and reducing the amount of coffee and fizzy pop you drink.
Alternatively you can boost magnesium levels internally, preferably via food containing high amounts of magnesium.
Here are a few foods with high amounts of magnesium in:
- Green leafy vegetables
- Beans & lentils
- Nuts & seeds
- Whole Grains
You could also take a magnesium supplement, but applying magnesium oil on to your skin as well as a supplement and the above lifestyle changes is by far the best options. That way you are sure to increase those magnesium levels safely and naturally!
The great news is that you can save money by making your own magnesium oil simply and easily at home.
