How it supports your body
Many of us don’t get sufficient magnesium in our diets. Magnesium is a critical electrolyte that our bodies need for electrical signals in muscles and nerves to work properly. Plus it is critical to over 300 different reactions in our cells. Because it is so important, low levels of magnesium in our diets put stress on our bodies and has been associated with increased chronic inflammation. So, if you're low in magnesium, then supplementing with magnesium can your body relax, and has been shown to help with bloating and cramps during menstruation.
Magnesium is also critical to how our bodies respond to food and to maintain healthy blood sugar levels. People with low magnesium are much more likely to be insulin resistant, and supplement with magnesium has been shown to help maintain healthy blood sugar.
