The Importance of Magnesium

Magnesium is a superstar mineral. It’s crucial for over 300 biochemical reactions in the body, yet its importance is often overlooked. 

About 75% of Americans are not getting enough magnesium in their diets. That’s well over half of the population. 

Thankfully, Raw Generation has a delicious and effective way to naturally boost your magnesium intake with the Higher Fiber* Gut Reset pack.

Why You Need Magnesium 

Magnesium is a vital mineral for maintaining optimal health. It’s essential for: 

  • Muscle and Nerve Function - Magnesium helps muscles to relax by blocking calcium. If your body does not make enough magnesium, your muscles can contract causing spasms or cramps. 
  • Digestive Health - Your stomach can be acidic. Think about heartburn and indigestion here. Magnesium actually helps to neutralize stomach acid to prevent these uncomfortable symptoms.
  • Immunity - Magnesium helps produce antibodies to help your body fight off bacteria and viruses. 
  • Heart Health - Magnesium keeps your heartbeat in rhythm. It does so by transporting electrolytes like potassium and calcium to your cells. These electrolytes send nerve signals to your heart muscle and help maintain a healthy heartbeat. [1]
  • Bone Health - Calcium is the hero for your bone health but without magnesium, your bone structure could suffer. Magnesium helps to draw calcium out of the blood and soft tissues back into the bones.

Symptoms of Magnesium Deficiency

  • Heartburn & indigestion 
  • Weakened immunity
  • Irregular heart rhythms
  • High blood pressure 

Magnesium Deficiency: How Does It Happen? 

Magnesium deficiency did not happen overnight and it’s not caused by one factor, but more so a mixture of issues. 

Over the decades the American diet has changed astronomically. With a standard diet full of processed foods, changes in agricultural practices, heavy medications, and overall lifestyle choices– it’s no wonder that the average American is deficient in magnesium. 

The Standard American Diet is full of pre-packaged convenience foods that also happen to be low in magnesium. The average American is indulging in highly processed and chemically laden foods made with refined carbohydrates, sugars, and other questionable ingredients. Cereals, chips, soft drinks, and candy bars have replaced healthy diets full of dark leafy greens, nuts, and seeds.

Over the decades, farming practices have also changed for the worse. Due to the increase in herbicides, pesticides, monocropping, and genetically modified (GMO) seeds, our soil is paying the ultimate price. Weak soil means fewer minerals, like magnesium than ever before. This directly impacts magnesium levels in fruits and vegetables. It explains why anything grown today contains less essential nutrients than in previous years. 

Magnesium deficiency can also be caused by chronic diseases like Type 2 diabetes, Crohn’s disease, and Celiac disease as well as medications, like antibiotics or diuretics.

Lifestyle choices and changes can also cause magnesium deficiencies. High stress causes magnesium to exit the body, and Alcohol consumption can also be the culprit in making less of this nutrient. 

Combatting Magnesium Deficiency

The best way to combat magnesium deficiency is not through supplements, but through diet. 

Incorporating magnesium-rich foods like dark leafy greens, nuts, seeds, and healthy whole grains can be a game-changer in meeting your magnesium needs. 

For more magnesium in your diet eat plenty of: 

  • Spinach 
  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Peanuts
  • Almonds
  • Cashews
  • Black Beans
  • Brown rice 
  • Cacao (yes–chocolate)
  • Wild Caught Salmon 
  • Banana 

As the holistic nutritionist at Raw Generation, I carefully selected magnesium-rich ingredients in each and every bottle of the Higher Fiber* Gut Reset pack. 

With delicious flavors like Peanut Butter Cup and Chocolate Cashew, you’ll be flooding your system with magnesium from bananas, pumpkin, cashews, and cacao.
