Natural Remedies: Magnesium

Magnesium is a key mineral in human metabolism and can be found in many healthy foods such as green leafy vegetables, nuts and seeds. Magnesium is needed for more than 300 chemical reactions that occur in the human body and because of this it is extremely important that we are getting enough in our daily diet but unfortunately it seems that the average person isn’t getting an adequate supply.

I started taking a magnesium supplement after having a talk with a natural health professional about natural things that I could take that might help stop or prevent many of the symptoms that I was having with my endometriosis and polycystic ovary syndrome.

Magnesium is able to control inflammation. A lack of magnesium has been linked to unwanted increases in the inflammatory process. It is also able to help maintain blood sugar levels something that is very important with PCOS. An added benefit of magnesium is that it can help reduce the feeling of fatigue. Magnesium is needed for cell reactions that take place in the body that allow energy production to occur – without it we can’t produce it.

So far I only have good things to report from taking a magnesium supplement and would definitely recommend you to look into it if you have endo or PCOS
