12 Signs You Need More Magnesium In Your Diet  Part 1 of 2

Magnesium deficiency is a condition that is often overlooked, yet it can be the cause or a contributing factor to several health problems. Take a look at this list to make sure you’re not experiencing signs of magnesium deficiency.

12. Chocolate Cravings

Dark chocolate is filled with magnesium. When your body is craving chocolate, it might be really asking for sufficient magnesium in your diet.

11. Overindulgence in Sodas

If you drink carbonated beverages daily, you may be flushing much-needed magnesium out of your body. The phosphates contained in most sodas bind with magnesium so your body can’t use it.

10. Stress

Stress has a multitude of effects on the body, including increasing heart rate and blood pressure, as well as triggering the release of various hormones. Another result of stress is depletion of the body’s magnesium stores.

9. Muscle Cramps

If you find your muscles cramping up or going into spasm, magnesium deficiency may be a root cause. Magnesium helps relax your muscles and keeps them from seizing up and cramping.

8. A Sweet Tooth

When sugar is refined, the molasses and magnesium are removed. When you overindulge in refined sugar, your body excretes magnesium through the kidneys.

7. Inability to Sleep

Difficulty getting to sleep can be a sign of magnesium deficiency.  Often insomnia and related sleep disturbances are a result of an electrolyte imbalance, which is most often low magnesium levels.
