Why Should Women Care About Magnesium?

Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) is one of the most common conditions in female-bodied people of childbearing age. It often causes symptoms such as water retention, abdominal cramps, tiredness, and irritability.

Research suggests that magnesium supplements help relieve PMS symptoms and other conditions such as menstrual cramps and migraine attacks.

This may be because magnesium levels fluctuate throughout the menstrual cycle, worsening PMS symptoms in those with a deficiency. As such, magnesium supplements may help reduce the severity of symptoms, including menstrual migraine attacks.

One study found that taking 300 mg of magnesium daily helped decrease bloating, depression, and anxiety in college students with PMS compared with a control group.

However, almost half of the U.S. population is not meeting their daily magnesium needs. According to a recent study - the recommended amount of Magnesium is more than 300mg to 400mg per day. While the average diet in the United States contains only 50% of that.

As a best practice, most medical experts reccomend supplementing with 300 mg of Magnesium daily to prevent definiciency and ensure healthy function in the body.

Essential to Basic Body Functions

Magnesium is an essential mineral and a co-factor in hundreds of enzyme reactions. Yet around half of all Americans and 70-80% of those over the age of 70 don't get enough magnesium in their diets.

Energy, Metabolism, and Sleep

Cells in your body use magnesium in adenosine triphosphate (ATP) creation, which generates energy and is key to healthy metabolism. It is also critical for a wide range of biochemical processes related to cognitive function, rest and sleep, and exercise recovery.

Muscles, Bones, and Nerves

Magnesium aids in absorbtion of vitamins like calcium and zinc required for strong bones. It is also used in protein production to support healthy muscle and nerve function. And the body uses the mineral in maintaining cardiovascular health.

Signs of Low Magnesium

Over time, not getting enough Magnesium can cause issues. These include:

Feeling tired 😴

Feeling irritable 😠

Muscle cramping or weakness 🤕

Abnormal heart rhythm 🥵

*If you have questions about your personal Magnesium levels, consult with your healthcare professional. They can perform blood tests or use other methods to assess your Magnesium status and recommend appropriate care.

Consider Supplementing With Triple Complex Magnesium ✨

Since many of us do not consume adequate magnesium through the foods we eat, supplementing between 250 to 450 milligrams of magnesium daily be a huge benefit.

However, while supplementing with magnesium is safe, taking too much can result in digestive discomfort, including diarrhea, nausea, and abdominal cramping. 300 milligrams may be the sweet spot for magnesium supplementation without the side effects.

It's worth noting that not all magnesium supplements are created equal. Magnesium oxide is among the types most likely to cause side effects and is not well-absorbed by the body. However, Magnesium citrate, Magnesium Malate, and Magnesium Glycinate (Chelated) have higher absorption rates while being much less likely to cause side effects - and when combined, are are more easily absorbed by the body.

If you're looking for a great all in one Magnesium solution, Triple Complex Magnesium by BioEmblem combines magnesium glycinate, citrate, and malate and was voted 'Best Overall Magnesium Supplement' by Healthline - Try it now!
