Magnesium for Muscles Part 3

Magnesium is helpful for numerous functions in the body; however, my intention throughout these articles was to stick to one of my main specialities, which is muscles. I love figuring out muscles and have been studying the muscles of the body for more than 20 years. I know from personal experience with my body and with others I have worked with that a deficiency in magnesium really hits the muscles in the body pretty hard. Personally, I use magnesium whenever my muscles feel a bit achey, I have some abdominal cramping and if I end up hurting my back muscles (or strain any other muscles) while at work lifting patients or working outside. It is the best solution I have found to combat the severe muscle spasms that occur in my back after a strain. I have been using it for years and I think it is more effective than the prescription muscle relaxers; though I cannot verify that because I have never had to take prescription muscle relaxers. I have been recommending it to may patients for years as well. Of course, as a therapist I am not allowed to “prescribe” any substances. I do, however, make my recommendations based on my knowledge and my experience. It is up to the patient or the client if they are interested in following my “recommendations”.

There are natural food sources for magnesium to get it in your diet including kelp, the green pigment in veggies (chlorophyll) and plants, nuts, whole grains, unpolished “brown” rice and wheat germ. Keep in mind that the content of magnesium in a plant is highly dependent on the amount of magnesium present in the soil it was grown in. If the soil is deficient in magnesium, then the plant will be as well, which trickles down into the human body and makes your body low in magnesium too. In addition, food processing further depletes the magnesium present in the food and cooking foods tends to leach out the magnesium into the cooking water. Softened water and bottled water have little to no magnesium either. Looking at this scenario, it is apparent that it can be quite difficult to get natural sources of magnesium. It is no wonder you may be suffering from symptoms of magnesium deficiency such as leg cramps, fibromyalgia, constipation and high blood pressure. In the next and final article I am going to discuss with you the different forms of magnesium that I recommend from Cardiovascular Research. However, if you are anxious and want to get it before then you can  visit this link here and find my favorite magnesium that I learned about from a local physician. If those hyperlinks did not work then use the one below.

If you want something that is exceptionally effective then Cardiovascular Research Magnesium solution is truly the best. Click this link if you want to get it from Amazon, which is where I purchase Magnesium solution unless I happen to go to my favorite local physician for it instead. If the above hyperlinks did not work then click or copy and paste the link below.
