Are you tired of feeling drained and sluggish all the time? Do you find it hard to stay awake and focused during the day? If so, you may be lacking in one crucial mineral – magnesium.
Magnesium is an essential mineral that plays a crucial role in maintaining our overall health, including boosting energy levels. In the human body, magnesium is involved in over 300 metabolic reactions, which help the body produce and use energy.1a
Why is magnesium so essential for our energy levels?
First and foremost, supplementation of magnesium has been associated with a significant improvement in sleep time, onset of sleep and melatonin levels, which regulates the body’s circadian rhythm and sleep patterns. A disrupted sleep cycle can lead to feelings of exhaustion and decreased energy levels.1b
In addition, magnesium helps regulate muscle contraction. It may help prevent muscle cramps and spasms by helping your muscles relax.
Magnesium has also shown to be effective in certain heart conditions. An imbalance of electrolytes can cause feelings of weakness, fatigue, and low energy levels.1d
Furthermore, magnesium plays a role in regulating blood sugar levels and low magnesium levels can lead to insulin resistance and fluctuations in blood sugar levels, resulting in fatigue, weakness, and low energy levels.1e
How much magnesium do you need to keep your energy levels up?
The recommended daily magnesium intake varies, but it is generally around 400-420 mg for adult men and 310-320 mg for adult women.2a
A diet rich in magnesium-rich foods, such as dark leafy greens, nuts, seeds, whole grains, fish, poultry, beef, and fortified cereals, can help ensure adequate magnesium levels in the body.2b
For those whose diets lack this essential mineral, magnesium supplements can be a helpful way to boost your levels.
There are 11 different forms of magnesium supplements available, including magnesium citrate, magnesium oxide, and magnesium glycinate, each with its own properties and impact on the body.3a
Magnesium supplements are commonly deemed safe for most people. Once you have attained adequate levels, your body will excrete any abundance through urine.3b
