We women know that we need calcium in our diets to help protect our bones as we age. Did you also know that calcium is necessary for the muscles in our bodies to contract, even the heart muscles? If calcium makes our muscles contract, what essential nutrient is needed to make them relax? If you answered magnesium, you were correct.
Are you getting enough magnesium? Let’s look at the symptoms of magnesium depletion:
Do you suffer from too much stress?
Perhaps you find that you get too anxious or nervous about things happening around you?
Are you irritable too often?
Do you suffer from PMS or have some hormonal imbalances?
Have too many headaches?
Do you fatigue easily, have low energy, or just have a feeling of weakness?
Do you have trouble sleeping?
Do your muscles seem tense, do they cramp up or do your muscle spasms or twitches?
Do you have an abnormal heart rhythm?
Are you bones weakening?
Do you suffer from calcification of organs?
According to Natural Vitality, you may be suffering from magnesium depletion.
A few weeks back, I was sent Natural Vitality Natural Calm: A Relaxing Magnesium Supplement. They consider it the “Anti Stress Drink.” Having enough magnesium in your system will balance out your calcium intake.
As I was saying above, that calcium acts as the muscle contractor in the body and magnesium is the muscle relaxer. As with your heart muscles, calcium is what tenses the heart, and magnesium relaxes the heart muscles. When you feel your pulse, you are feeling the chemical reactions of calcium and magnesium working together in your body.
But what happens to a cell that is not in balance—where the magnesium level in the body is deficient?
In simple terms, the “off” switch doesn’t fully turn off. That means calcium can continuously leak into the cells and stimulate cell activity (the “on” switch). The result is stress accompanied by one or more of the magnesium deficiency symptoms.” –Natural Vitality
Natural Calm has also really helped out this last month being so sick with bronchitis. I do get a bit irritable when I get bronchitis with all the hard hacking and coughing, and I have been quite at ease. Thinking back on the last month, I have been calm, cool, and collected even with a few of the kids coughing so hard that they threw up. I wasn’t stressed out!
What makes Natural Vitality’s Natural Calm a better source of magnesium than what you can get from the store? It is a powdered effervescent drink. Mix it with water, wait for the effervescence to subside, and drink it up. The water-soluble magnesium is in an ionic form, so it is ready to go to work for your body right away unlike traditional tablets or capsules.
