6. High Blood Pressure

Many factors contribute to high blood pressure, including magnesium deficiency. Magnesium relaxes your blood vessels, lowering your blood pressure.

5. Caffeine Consumption

When you ingest too much caffeine, your kidneys release magnesium whether your body needs it or not. If you’re a regular coffee drinker, you’re at an increased risk for magnesium deficiency.

4. Abnormal Heart Rhythms

Just as magnesium helps your muscles to keep from cramping, it helps your heart to function properly. If you experience [irregular heartbeats], lack of sufficient magnesium could be a contributing factor.

3. Constipation

Magnesium helps your intestines relax in the same way it helps blood vessels become more open. If you have enough magnesium, your body also pulls extra water into your bowels, which helps prevent constipation.

2. Increased Alcohol Intake

If you drink alcohol on a regular basis, the amount of magnesium in your body could be low by as much as 30 percent. Alcohol encourages the kidneys to flush out magnesium and makes the digestive system less effective.

1. Facial Tics

If you experience eye twitches or facial tics, you are very possibly experiencing a magnesium deficit. In fact, these signs are classical clinical tests for calcium and magnesium deficiency.

All of these signs can point to a magnesium deficiency.  Getting magnesium from food is somewhat difficult.  High magnesium foods include dark leafy greens, nuts, seeds, fish, beans, whole grains, avocados, yogurt, bananas, dried fruit(especially figs) and dark chocolate.

The current daily value (DV) for magnesium is 400mg.

Magnesium is hydrophilic, hydro, referring to water, and philic, from Greek philos, meaning “loving”, so magnesium is water loving, it attracts water to itself.  Magnesium is poorly absorbed in the human digestive tract, so it ends up in the colon where it attracts water and can cause diarrhea.  However, magnesium absorbed topically, through the skin, does not cause this problem.  Epsoma delivers 47 mg of magnesium into the body topically, through the skin, so there is no danger of stomach upset.  And you can be assured that the magnesium is actually absorbed and used by the body.  Research done by Rosemary Waring at the University of Birmingham(England)found that topical magnesium was absorbed through the skin, into the muscle, then into the blood and then after being used for the body’s needs, was passed through the urine and out of the body.  Magnesium needs to be replenished daily.  Regular use of Epsoma does this.
