Tired? Magnesium Might Be Your Missing Link!

We all know the feels: exhausted more than not and running on the smell of an oiley rag. Between the to-do lists and the needs to be here, there and everywhere for our families, being a busy mum can feel like a being in a marathon you didn't expect to happen ‍🤗

But what if there was a reason you're feeling so drained? It could be due to magnesium. Magnesium deficiency, is a sneaky little culprit that can leave you feeling like a zombie even after a full night's sleep (which, let's be honest, is a rare occurrence for most of us!).

So, how do you know if you're low on magnesium?

Think about it like this: your body needs magnesium for over 300 functions in the body each and every day, including:

  • Energy Production: Magnesium helps your body create the usable form of energy in our bodies (ATP), so when you're deficient, you can't produce enough energy and you feel like a deflated balloon.
  • Muscle Relaxation: Magnesium is a neuromuscular relaxant. The muscles and the nervous system can't relax without it. Magnesium helps your muscles relax and recover.
  • Stress Management: Magnesium helps regulate stress hormones and bring the fight and flight nervous response back into a rest and digest state, keeping you feeling calmer and more centered throughout the day. 
  • Improved Sleep: Magnesium promotes deeper as it is a precursor to the production of our own natural sleepy drug, melatonin, giving you a more restorative sleep, so you can finally wake up feeling refreshed and ready to take on the world.

Here are some signs that might indicate you're magnesium deficient:

  • Constant fatigue: Feeling tired all the time, even after a good night's sleep? Magnesium deficiency could be to blame.
  • Muscle cramps and tension: Those tight, achy muscles could be a sign your body needs more magnesium.
  • Trouble sleeping: Tossing and turning all night? Magnesium can help you sleep deeper and wake up feeling more rested.
  • Anxiety and stress: Feeling overwhelmed and on edge? Magnesium can help regulate your stress hormones and promote feelings of calm.
  • Headaches and migraines: Frequent headaches or migraines could be linked to magnesium deficiency.

If you're experiencing several of these symptoms, it's definitely worth mentioning it to your doctor. In the meantime, you can also try incorporating magnesium-rich foods into your diet and consider trying our Magnesium Spray.

Remember, taking care of yourself isn't selfish, it is literally essential! A well-rested and energized mama is a happy mama, and a happy mama makes for a happier family. So, listen to your body and see if magnesium might be the missing link to feeling your best!
