200716 "Magnesium is IMPORTANT"

In a discussion today about magnesium I could help but realize that I haven't mentioned the importance of this supplement for quite some time. Below are some very good reasons why you should SUPPLEMENT your diet with a Magnesium supplement . 1) Magnesium gives you energy. Simply put, magnesium activates the ATP in your cells and keeps you firing in a healthy way. 2) Magnesium helps you sleep by relaxing the muscles throughout the body, especially your digestive system. And we all know that when we are relaxed in our gut.. life is good! 3) Magnesium regulates the electrolyte levels in your body. If you are an athlete then muscle firing is very important. Electrolytes assist in the electrical impulses that move through the body. Along with proper muscle firing, your HEART has the largest stores of Magnesium in the body so keeping up on your magnesium levels can keep your heart running well. 4) Because Magnesium helps control the intake of calcium in the body, it has been linked to preventing osteoarthritis. Good joints and bones for many years to come.

PURE PHARMA makes a great Magnesium supplement so if you want to compare the levels with levels of other brands in your health store that is a good way to go. I will be ordering a new case soon. Totally worth it!!
