Why Everyone is Talking About Magnesium

Why Everyone is Talking About Magnesium


Hi, everyone.
How are you? How are we doing today? It’s Dr. Nancy. Thank you so much for joining me today for part two of my two-part series,
the magnesium craze. Say what? Oh, you didn’t know
we were in the middle of a craze. Yeah, while you were sleeping, magnesium became the second
most popular mineral on the market, and is projected to overtake
the current number one standalone mineral, calcium. Dun-dun-dun. Are you surprised? It’s startling, yeah. It’s pretty incredible
just how many health issues are triggered by low magnesium. By low magnesium. Attila is on.
Hello, good to see you. And it’s also really incredible
of how many products today have magnesium added to them. Have you guys
even started to notice when you’re walking down
the shopping aisles? Hey, Tom. How are you?
So good to see you. Hey, Paul. Welcome. But here’s the question,
here’s the question– Russel, hello. Is adding more magnesium
always good? Well, the answer is– It’s a little bit tricky.
It’s a little bit tricky. The answer could be yes,
the answer could be no. Hi, Morris. If you follow the advice
I’m about to share with you and take the right– take the right therapeutic dose
of a food-based magnesium supplement, it can do wonders
for so many health issues. Hello, Dave and Larry.
And Eleanor is on, too. So did you hear that? That’s what we’re gonna be talking
about today. If you do take the wrong magnesium,
the synthetic form, especially too much of the wrong form, then you may be in
for an unpleasant surprise. Unpleasant surprise. Do you remember–
who remember old milk of magnesia? Who remembers that? It was chock-full, literally,
chock-full of synthetic magnesium, like many of the magnesium
supplements at stores, and it can assure that your– Hmm. How do I put this nicely? Your laxative effect is no potty,
is no polity. Get it? All right. Today’s show is about how to take
the right magnesium. Or I should say,
how to take the magnesium right. How to do magnesium right, so you enjoy all the benefits
without having to run to the restroom each time that you take it. In part one of my magnesium series, I dove into a specific– a few specific health benefits
of magnesium, mainly its calming effect and how helpful it can be
with anxiety and stress. And I’m gonna review that with you
in just a minute in case you missed part one. And in part two today, I’m gonna continue
with the other benefits of magnesium that you need to be aware of. Yay-yay? Yeah. Yay-yay! Ronald and Albert, hello. So good to see you, Albert. Barikisu, hello, good to see you. Candy, welcome. Okay. And, again, a programming note for those that enjoy watching
the live shows, this season, the show is broadcasting
at 8:30 a.m. Pacific Standard Time. That’s my 8:30 a.m.,

a subsequent, one another one, because there’s more information, right? This is always constantly pouring in. I want you to make sure that– I want to make sure
that you are in the know all the time of the news. That’s always uncovering. So look for that in my upcoming show. All right? All right. We are also going to cover
the latest information on diet and supplements, documentaries like “Game Changers”
and “What the Health,” Those are out there.
Has anyone caught those? Yeah, challenging– These documentaries are challenging people
to think about, I don’t know, what they’re eating, consuming meat,
and the keto diet, those are big, too. I’m gonna give you my take
on those, too, as well. If you watch my show regularly,
you’ll pick up the tools and the information that you need

into today’s show, I just want to let everyone know
that my new book is not out yet. We are still finishing the final touches. So, I really do appreciate your patience,
but your excitement, so hang in there, I’m chipping away
with my staff each day, so that we have
the latest current information, and I’ll keep you posted on that. Yay-yay. Hey, Carol.
Hello, Richard. So, yesterday, during part one
of my magnesium series, I introduced you
just how important magnesium is for your health. And for my regulars,
for my regulars out there, does anyone remember– This is a question. Does anyone remember
how many reactions I said yesterday that magnesium is responsible for
in the body? How many reactions? How many reactions is magnesium
responsible for in the body? Does anyone remember?
You guys can– Hey, Yotte. You can just put it
in the comments below. I’ll give you a second. Who will get the answer correct first? All right, if you said 375,
you are correct. And your brain is working
at optimal levels. Good job. Research has identified that magnesium
is in the catalyst for– is the catalyst for 300– over 375 important body functions
in the body. Everything from mental health
to helping control blood glucose levels and managing diabetes
to preventing muscle spasms and cramping. Oh, Charley horse. It plays a major role in helping us
manage stress and anxiety, and so much more. And if you were able
to tune in yesterday, you might remember
that I compared the body to an engine, and magnesium to a spark plug
that starts so many of the– of the perfect– of the important functions
in your body, of the important functions in your body. I also told you that nearly
70 percent of people, 70 percent of people, nearly 7 out of 10 of us
are deficient in magnesium. And why is this such a big deal? Why is it such a big deal? Hello, from Southern California. Hello, Yvonne.
Hey, Heidi. Why is such a big deal? Well, the leading findings
from several experts in chronic pain and disease
have concluded that nearly every major disease
or chronic condition is associated in some form or another, in some way
with a magnesium deficiency. So, yeah, I would say,
yes, it is very important. It is very important. I also shared several symptoms
of magnesium deficiency with you yesterday. Do you guys remember
any of the symptoms that we mentioned? Symptoms of magnesium deficiency. Let’s review. We know that increased
anxiety and stress or symptoms, but you could also experience
any of these followings, and I have them on note cards, so you can either–
somebody can help me scribe it, or we can do it together. Okay, muscle spasms and cramps, muscle spasms and cramps,
especially in the legs. Anyone experience this? And it only happens
in the middle of the night, right in the middle of REM sleep. Research concludes that magnesium’s
primary role in sending signals to the muscles, especially to contract, well, that’s a key major factor
in muscle cramping. It’s also common to experience
restless leg syndrome, restless leg syndrome as a result
of being deficient in magnesium. I’ve seen the commercials
for restless leg syndrome. So, there you go.
That’s the correlation. Next, fatigue. Fatigue. Oh, Larry goes, “Amanda will type.” [chuckles] You’ve won, Amanda. All right, fatigue,
and I mean more than just feeling tired. I’m talking about low energy,
weakness, general– general, you just cannot– You got to use your other hand
to move the hand, right? Often this can be all traced back to being deficient in magnesium. In fact, it’s been found that most people
suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome are magnesium deficient. Are magnesium deficient. High blood pressure
and heart disease. Now, we often hear about calcium and how important it is
in helping to regulate our blood pressure. But not many people know
that calcium needs to be a partner, calcium needs to be a partner
with magnesium to effectively regulate your blood pressure and improve cardiovascular health. You guys all with me? Okay. In fact, a recent study
in nearly 250,000 people published in the American Journal
of Clinical Nutrition concluded that a diet
rich in magnesium could actually reduce the risk of a stroke by nearly 10 percent. Magnesium, I would say,
is that important for heart health as well. Heart health. Now, other common symptoms
of a magnesium deficiency, include migraines, headaches, joint pain, and unexplained weight gain. Unexplained weight gain. Thanks, Dave, for working so hard,
from Florida. He’s just, “I don’t want to miss a bit.” Now, if you missed part one
of my magnesium series, we spent a large part of the show
looking at magnesium’s role in helping us manage our stress and manage our anxiety levels,
and also how– how stress and magnesium deficiency, together can create a downward cycle that contributes
to many current health issues. You see, stress draws magnesium
from the body. It literally in there
with a little tiny vacuum cleaner just sucking it all up. But we need magnesium
to deal with stress. Got that? We need magnesium
to deal with stress. When magnesium levels are high, levels of stress hormone cortisol
is lower. You see, that correlation is inverse and vice-versa. So, taking a daily
therapeutic level of magnesium can be quite effective. It’s quite effective. So, let’s look at some
of the other direct benefits of daily magnesium supplementation. All right, daily– Daily magnesium supplementation benefits. Okay, first up,
magnesium lowers your risk of diabetes by helping to control
the amount of glucose in your blood, and how your body metabolizes insulin. And get this. Researchers from the WHO,
the World Health Organization, have found that nearly
everyone with diabetes is also deficient in magnesium. That is pretty staggering.
That’s a pretty big statistic. Doesn’t it? Don’t you think? And another study found
that you can decrease your risk of diabetes for 15 percent just by getting
enough magnesium every day. So, if you have trouble managing
your glucose levels, if you know that you’re prediabetic
or you’re diabetic, you should–you need to be taking
a daily magnesium supplement with a therapeutic dosage. Now, magnesium also improves
your cardiovascular health. We talked about the heart. Heart health part Now, I told you earlier, right, how magnesium works
to help regulate your blood pressure, but it is also really important for you
to take the magnesium, to keep your muscles
in your heart healthy to prevent arrhythmia
which are abnormal heartbeats. That’s really, really important as well. Doctors have also found
that giving magnesium to people right after they had a heart attack– Has anyone have– Has anyone had heart attack
or know of somebody? Probably most of us, right? At least know somebody that has. So doctors have found
that giving magnesium to people right after they had a heart attack, actually reduces the risk of death. In fact, there appears
to be a direct correlation between the amount of magnesium
in your system and your risk for heart disease or stroke. Higher magnesium levels
lowers your risk. So, there’s that inverse
relationship again. See how important it is? All right, next up,
next benefit. Magnesium promotes better sleep. Anyone out there can’t sleep,
tossing and turning all night? Things are running in your heads,
to-do list, or you just have aches and pains,
or something like that, you just can’t sleep. Yeah, insomnia is a really big thing. Magnesium promotes better sleep. Being deficient in magnesium
can also cause insomnia or at least prolonged periods
of poor restful sleep, such as waking up a lot
during the night. That is one of the most
common complaints that I get when people write in to me
for me to help them is that they cannot sleep. So, that’s a big thing. Supplementing with magnesium
has been shown to help regulate levels of GABA, G-A-B-A, and that is the neurotransmitter
that helps contribute to deeper, more restful sleep. All right, magnesium also helps
to improve bone health. Dave, write bone health for me. Improve bone health. Your bones contain
large amounts of magnesium. In fact, nearly half of the magnesium
in your body is stored in your bones. We’ve learned that your body
needs magnesium to form strong bones
and improve bone density. How many of us are women
over the age of 40, right? When we’re really starting
to lose that bone density. And it’s magnesium
that helps your body better access calcium
and vitamin D, so the body can build
strong dense bones. And this is especially important as we age, older men, older– I just talked about women,
but older men as well, who have higher magnesium intake, they also have greater bone density
and stronger bones, and are much likely
to suffer from osteoporosis. For any of my clients over 60, I watch the magnesium levels closely
for just this specific reason. Bone density health. Okay, magnesium supplementation is a must if you suffer from migraines. Anyone here suffering
from lots of intense pressure, headaches, migraines? Research has indicated that taking
a magnesium supplement can be an effective way
to prevent headaches. Other studies have also suggested
that the magnesium levels in a person’s brain may be low
during a migraine. Isn’t that interesting to know? My migraine suffering friends have
reported better preventative success with magnesium supplementation than just about any other natural product. So, if you really do have chronic issues with migraines and headaches, maybe you should look
at supplementing with magnesium. The list of health benefits– I mean I can really go on and on
that are attributed with magnesium, it’s really, really long. It’s even reported
to improve mental clarity, increase energy,
reduce certain symptoms of PMS, and is a powerful
inflammation fighter. You want to take it
with your Curcumin and you’ve got a powerful
inflammation-fighting combo. It’s like a right and left
hook, jab, cross. You can tell I’m not a boxer. Okay, so what’s left to say? If you’re not supplementing with magnesium,
then it’s time to start, especially if you are middle-age. Now, I use Smarter Magnesium because it gives the right
therapeutic level of magnesium to keep my levels up, to keep my levels up,
