When we think of PMS or muscle cramps very few of us would ever even consider the fact that we could be suffering from a deficiency in magnesium.
Many of us would generally just fob it off as 'just one of those things'.
However, just like with all vitamins and minerals, magnesium is essential for keeping our body healthy and happy - and it is important to be aware of the signs that your body is craving it.
In fact, did you even know that a woman needs 270mg a day while a man needs 300mg a day?
Along with PMS and muscle cramps, a magnesium deficiency can cause the following:
- Sleep problems
- Fibro myalgia
- Low energy
- Muscle spasms
- It can also affect the health of your skin and hair
So, what can you do?
Well, diet is one of the most important ways of getting magnesium into your body so eat plenty of leafy green vegetables (spinach), fish, meat, bread, dairy, nuts, figs, pumpkin seeds and black beans.
However, modern food processing and cooking may decrease the magnesium content in food so it can be worth taking a supplement.
