Stress is the root evil of many things but what may come to you as a surprise is that stress can increase the amount of magnesium you lose. Add in the fact that studies estimate over 75% to already have a magnesium deficiency and you could run into some significant health issues. But we aren’t here to be the bearer of bad news. Instead, it’s our mission to keep you informed so you can treat yourself to optimal health with our magnesium creams.
You Need Magnesium To Live and Feel Great
Magnesium is an essential mineral for the proper functioning of your body. Without it, your mind and body simply aren’t able to do what they need to do for you to live and feel great. So, it goes without saying that you need magnesium for ideal mental and physical health; we’re here to help.
Stress and Magnesium
In addition to playing a vital role in maintaining proper body functions, magnesium is crucial for maintaining your central nervous system. It helps your cells to produce and use energy so much so that many health professionals refer to magnesium as being a neuroprotector.
But what happens when you get stressed out?
The more stress you have, the higher the amount of magnesium you’ll lose from your body. However, since most people already don’t receive the daily recommended intake of magnesium, even the slightest bit of stress can lead to pretty serious magnesium deficiency symptoms. To name a few, some common magnesium deficiency signs are:
- Heart irregularities
- Moodiness, PMS, anxiety, and depression
- Muscle aches, pains, spasms, cramps, and twitches
- Restless Leg Syndrome
- Fatigue, brain fog and difficulty concentrating
- Indigestion, nausea, constipation, excessive gas and diarrhea
- … And many more
All of these symptoms can drastically affect your quality of life, so it’s imperative to take proper measures to ensure you’re getting enough magnesium into your day while also practicing vital stress management to keep it in your body.
The Vicious Cycle of Stress and a Magnesium Deficiency
The interesting thing is that a magnesium deficiency can lead to increased anxiety. When you experience more anxiety, your brain increases your “flight or fight” responses, which increases your stress levels drastically. And with more stress, you lose even more magnesium, resulting in a vicious cycle that can take a dramatic toll on your overall health. As such, it’s imperative to take control of both your magnesium deficiency and to implement powerful stress management techniques for a complete health and wellness makeover.
There are many things you can do to start implementing stress management into your day. Eating a healthy diet and getting in a minimum of 30 minutes of exercise each day is important to keep your stress levels at bay.
However, we like the type of stress management that tackles two things at once – magnesium efficiency and stress. Here are the steps we follow for a powerful, stress-free, magnesium-boosting, symptom-reducing regime:
- Reduce stress and magnesium deficiency symptoms with our MoonMag face mask
- Soak in magnesium bath salts at least once a week
- Finish up with our magnesium infused body scrub to get rid of any flaky skin cells prohibiting new cell growth (#SelfCareSunday)
- Apply either our magnesium pain relief cream or extra strength balm as needed to soothe symptoms and boost magnesium levels. Do this thirty minutes before bed for a more restful night's sleep and to alleviate restless leg syndrome and cramping.
At MOONMAG Organic SkinCare, we have a vast collection of premium, organic magnesium relief creams, magnesium balms, best arthritis pain cream, and balm and other mental-health-boosting products that will help get your magnesium levels and mental state back to where they should be.
