Did you know that because magnesium is so essential to body energy production, symptoms such as headaches, fatigue, cramps, muscle spasms and muscle pain can result from a deficiency. Other symptoms of magnesium deficiency include constipation, kidney stones, high blood pressure, depression, anxiety and heart disease. Most Americans are deficient in magnesium and most doctors don’t routinely check magnesium levels when they order blood tests. Diets high in processed foods, magnesium-depleted soil, certain medication interactions, excessive perspiration, fluoridated water and chronic stress all contribute to the epidemic of magnesium deficiency we experience in this country. The best forms of magnesium are magnesium glycinate if you have normal bowel movements or loose stool and magnesium citrate if you suffer from constipation.
