Magnacaps are a great source of magnesium. Magnesium is the supreme "anti-stress" mineral (along with B-vitamins). Every organ in the body—especially the heart, muscles, and kidneys—needs magnesium. It also contributes to the makeup of teeth and bones. Most important, it activates enzymes, contributes to energy production, and helps regulate calcium levels, as well as copper, zinc, potassium, vitamin D, and other important nutrients in the body. Foods rich in magnesium include whole grains, nuts, and green vegetables. Green leafy vegetables are particularly good sources of magnesium.
So many people in our stressful world today are deficient in magnesium. Specific symptoms of poor magnesium intake can include anxiety, muscle cramps, headaches, facial tics, constipation, poor sleep (difficulty getting to sleep or staying asleep), and chronic pain. Certain foods or drinks in grocery stores have added calcium in them, but this could create a magnesium deficiency, as both nutrients need to be taken together.
Also the following lifestyle choices can flush magnesium from the body: drinking a lot of carbonated beverages, eating a lot of sweet foods and processed baked goods, regularly drinking caffeinated beverages such as coffee and tea, having a high pressured job that puts undue stress on you, taking a diuretic, heart medication, asthma medication, birth control pills, or estrogen replacement therapy, along with drinking more than seven alcoholic beverages per week. Make sure you take extra magnesium if your body is being challenged in any of these ways!
