5 Signs You Are Missing This Essential Mineral -- And an Easy Way to Get it Back!

Have you ever had frequent headaches? Muscle cramps? Unexplained anxiety? Maybe you often struggle with getting a good night’s sleep? Or you have high blood pressure?

If you experience one or more of these, you might be deficient in a mineral called magnesium.

Magnesium deficiencies are commonly overlooked because the symptoms mimic many other maladies. Experts call it the “invisible deficiency” but that doesn’t mean a magnesium deficiency can be ignored. In fact, if this is you, read on and learn how you can tackle this without taking a single supplement!  

1. Headaches and Migraines

When you get a headache or a migraine, do you take Ibuprofen, Aleve, or some other NSAID (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory) and then lie down and relax?

Most headaches or migraines are the result of a constriction. Tension headaches, for example, are the result of tense muscles in the upper back, shoulders, or neck–these are often perceived as migraines.

In fact, studies have shown that migraine sufferers often have lower levels of magnesium compared to those who do not experience migraines.

So, consider the possibility of a magnesium deficiency. Restoring your magnesium levels may result in long-term relief from migraines or headaches. Wouldn’t that be a much better option than temporarily relieving the pain with drugs?

2. Muscle Cramps & Spasms

The exact cause of muscle cramps and spasms isn’t known, however many experts believe a lack of minerals, specifically, potassium, calcium, or magnesium is to blame.

Magnesium is especially important for muscle relaxation. So when you lack magnesium, your muscles can involuntarily contract which can cause painful spasms.

This issue is especially common in our coffee-addicted society. Diuretics (substances that make us pee more) such as coffee, tea, or even blood pressure medications can deplete our mineral stores causing muscle cramps or spasms. Replenishing that balance may help.

3. Anxiety

Do you regularly feel anxious? If so, you are not alone. Anxiety is one of the most common mental illnesses in America.

And, one of the more common symptoms of a magnesium deficiency is anxiety. According to Dr. Mark Hyman, an internationally recognized leader in wellness:

“Magnesium is the relaxation mineral. Anything that is tight, irritable, crampy, and stiff –whether it is a body part or [even] a mood –is a sign of magnesium deficiency.”

If you feel frequent and general worry or unease, you may want to consider getting more magnesium. Anxiety can also be caused by other factors that magnesium may not be able to target, however, if you experience anxiety in addition to any of these other symptoms that are listed here, it is worth considering trying magnesium.

4. Insomnia or Trouble Sleeping
If you have trouble sleeping, staying asleep, or are an insomniac, you may be deficient in magnesium. Even a small magnesium deficiency can prevent the brain from relaxing at night

Why? Because magnesium plays a key role in your central nervous system.

Magnesium is also known to promote relaxation, so it is recommended that if you incorporate magnesium into your sleep hygiene regimen, you can take advantage of this.

Ideally, by restoring your magnesium levels back to normal (this may take time depending on how deficient you are) and by doing so at night, you can get a satisfying restful night’s sleep.

5. High Blood Pressure

Magnesium helps dilate and relax your blood vessels.

Therefore, when you have a magnesium deficiency it can cause high blood pressure by increasing blood vessel constriction. No amount of healthy eating (even magnesium-rich foods, although that helps) or exercise is going to significantly lower your blood pressure if you are magnesium deficient. If you experience difficulties with high blood pressure, you may want to consider adding magnesium to your daily regimen.

So You Think You’re Magnesium Deficient

If you only experience one of the listed symptoms of a magnesium deficiency, your issues may be caused by something else. Not all headaches, for example, are caused by a magnesium deficiency. However, most people are deficient in magnesium, so it couldn’t hurt to consciously add magnesium to your day.

How do you do that without a supplement? What’s wrong with supplements anyway?
