Healthy diet is a basic prerequisite for our health and longevity. With special reference to vitamins and minerals – magnesium just as one priority. Read on to learn about the consequences of magnesium deficiency – hypomagnesemia – and how to overcome it, naturally.
THE PHILOSOPHY BEHIND
Our health and longevity are highly dependent on natural nutrients with special reference to minerals. Just as 2-time Nobel Prize laureate Professor Linus Pauling from Oregon State University has stated a historic medical principle: “You can trace every sickness, every disease and every ailment to a mineral deficiency.”
Especially a deficiency of magnesium - medical term: hypomagnesemia. I.e., with less than 0.75 millimoles per liter (mmol/l) of magnesium in the blood.
With more than 50% citizens of our ‘modern’ society being affected. With serious consequences for our health.
As verified by conventional medicine inter alia at Sapienza University of Rome in Italy’s capital Rome.
E.g., in terms of cardiovascular disease. Just to indicate the proverbial medical tip of the iceberg as the most debilitating disease of our time (followed by cancer and diabetes). With special reference to
- heart disease
- high blood pressure/hypertension
Besides many other health issues affected by magnesium deficiency. Including
- blood sugar balance (diabetes!)
- cognitive capability
- migraine headache
- kidney disease
- health of muscles (magnesium is almost indispensable for well-functioning muscle contractions)
As verified scientifically at, inter alia,
- Harvard School of Public Health in Boston, MA
- University of Hertfordshire in Hartfield, UK
- University of Palermo in Palermo, Italy
- University of Western Australia in Perth, Australia
Finally, not to forget about the impact of magnesium on our – yes - longevity.
As verified by research, inter alia, in California at the University of California in Berkeley & Children’s Hospital Oakland Research Institute in Oakland.
In fact, hypomagnesemia is realized manifoldly early prior to harsh effect by respective symptoms such as, inter alia,
- myoclonic twitches (face & other parts of body)
- muscle twitches and even
- change of personality
As magnesium is related to more than 300 (!) enzyme reactions, according to U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH).
Fortunately, nature is giving us plenty of (well-balanced/non-processed) foods with magnesium content to avoid hypomagnesemia. To incorporate in our daily menu.
According to the U.S. governmental National Institutes of Health (NIH), this includes - inter alia -
- whole wheat bread
- chicken breast
- black/kidney beans
- fish (like salmon & halibut)
- fortified cereals
- nuts (primarily peanuts/almonds/cashews)
- peanut butter
