18 Symptoms of a serious Magnesium deficiency
There is a huge percentage of the population that has a serious magnesium deficiency, mostly due to low dietary consumption.
According to the Mayo Clinic experiencing a deficiency of magnesium does not show up as a symptom until it is at a significantly low level. The blood only holds approximately 1% of our level so taking a deeper look into the cellular storage is more important than most realize. There are many contributors to most symptoms but if you have many of the following, you may want to dig deeper:
- Muscle pain/cramps/spasms & restless leg
- Upper respiratory infections
- Chronic sinusitis
- Cardiovascular disease
- High Blood Pressure

Soda pop is draining as it releases magnesium causing a relaxed, feel-good sensation but in turn, depleting the body’s magnesium levels. Other factors such as soil depletion, aging, malabsorption due to leaky gut, excessive water consumption, or medication side effects (acid reflux drugs).
When a body has an imbalance of Magnesium, taking it in excess will not correct it for long. One could experience temporary relief of some symptoms but until one knows the “how and why” the level is low, it will reoccur.
