Yea, that is strange to say Magnesium is my new #BFF right?
What even does magnesium ACTUALLY do? It is a miracle mineral, yes, mineral and not a vitamin. Who the heck knew? I didn’t know either, but listen to me and listen right now, you need it in your life.
Not only is it a weight loss super weapon but it is natures anti-anxiety medication. I swear, mother nature has you covered. She always does, we just don’t listen often enough. However, listen to me closely, Magnesium is nature’s Xanax.
I always had thought, okay I eat tons of greens, I get enough magnesium, nope. I wasn’t. Actually about 70% of people do not get enough. About 4 years ago I read The Clean Program (if you need a good kick in the arse to get your health on track and a deep detox, READ. THIS. I have to credit this book to really getting my mind right about what I was putting into my mouth). Dr Junger introduced me to a magnesium supplement called Natural Calm.
Not only does Magnesium beat your muffin top, check out this article here, but it actually reduced water retention and bloat. Perfect for THAT time of the month. According to the National Institutes of Health, our bodies require magnesium for more than 300 chemical reactions, including keeping heart rhythm steady and regulating blood sugar levels, but in addition to its health benefits, this nutrient may also aid in weight loss and body shaping.
Magnesium helps relax the muscles, keeps things regular and moving (wink wink), removes toxins and helps to provide a spectacular deep sleep. I drink mine at night before bed mixed into a La Croix. I only buy the original flavor, I hate the raspberry sweetener taste so I skip that one. The original just tastes a bit mineral-y so in the seltzer its perfect.
Warning! Warning! Do not over do the dosage or you will be on the porcelain throne in no time “detoxing”. However, you may want this, if that is your goal, go for it.
Thank me later.
PS- I buy the packets so I can bring with me when I travel. You can buy here on amazon. I buy by entire life from Amazon. My doorman thinks I am legit crazy, I get about 5 amazon deliveries per day.
