MAGNESIUM: THE FEEL-GOOD MINERAL
Magnesium is a mineral that assists in carrying out various chemical reactions in the body, helping the heart, muscles, bones, nerves, and other organs to run smoothly. More than half of our body’s magnesium is stored in our bones, while the remaining supply is scattered throughout various tissues in the body.
Magnesium is present in a lot of foods, such as leafy green vegetables, seeds, nuts, legumes, and whole grains. Some mineral and bottled water brands also carry magnesium as one of the ingredients. But unless you follow a strict diet, your daily food and water intake may not provide enough of the body’s magnesium requirements. As magnesium deficiency can lead to a wide variety of health issues, supplementation of the essential mineral can be an effective nutritional strategy.
Some of the health benefits identified with adequate magnesium intake include:
- Increased energy levels
- Improved sleep
- Maintenance of bone health
- Improved mood
- Support for cardiovascular health
Magnesium is a key ingredient in ZipSlim, a deliciously refreshing nutraceutical supplement in blackberry lemonade and cherry limeade flavors, that was developed by Dr. Mark Drucker of the Center for Advanced Medicine to help individuals become fitter, healthier, and happier.
