Do We All Have a Magnesium Deficiency?


Some researchers are now saying that Magnesium deficiency is one of the most common ailments plaguing Americans today, and with so many people suffering from issues related to cardiovascular health, getting restful sleep, and maintaining muscular flexibility and bowel motility it’s easy to see why they feel this is the case. Worse yet, magnesium deficiency can be difficult to detect, as only a very small percentage of it travels through the blood, with most of it being stored and utilized within the bones and organs. But why is this becoming such a big problem now? The answer may be in the soil beneath our feet.


Every time a plant grows from the soil, it pulls minerals out which builds its cell structures and (in the case of vegetables) provides it with most of its nutritional value. This is a great thing, but with the aggressive farming habits that we have used in this country for decades, many say that the minerals in the soil have not been provided with enough time between growing seasons to replenish themselves, so with each passing year the crops we’ve grown have contained fewer and fewer minerals, so even people eating incredibly healthy diets are not getting as much Magnesium from their food as their parents, grandparents, and great grandparents did from eating those same fruits and vegetables.


This is why, beyond the health benefits natural to the mineral, supplemental magnesium is so often recommended. Magnesium is one of the most essential minerals in the body, and it’s harder now than ever to get enough from our diets.
