So you’ve heard about the beneficial properties of magnesium to restore the proper structure and function of your cardiovascular system. Outstanding! Then, you start taking ReMag for your high blood pressure. Awesome. But don’t stop there! Because once you start supplementing with ReMag you’ll find out it’s good for lots of things. And, as you continue to use magnesium on a daily basis you’ll notice a steady improvement in your health, vitality, and well-being.
Proper magnesium and mineral supplementation is the most supportive and life-giving thing you can do for your body, says Dr. Carolyn Dean, author of The Magnesium Miracle. In fact, the rising tide of magnesium lifts all other nutrients and their response as well as most every life-giving system in your body.
And, even if you can’t tell what’s happening, clinical research* has proven that magnesium is:
- Promoting restful sleep
- Mood recovery from depression and anxiety
- Encouraging proper elimination
- Producing ATP [energy]
- Regulating and normalizes blood pressure
- Regulating heart rhythms eliminating symptoms of A-Fib
- Helping prevent congestive heart failure
- Lowering serum cholesterol levels and triglycerides
- Decreasing insulin resistance
- May be preventing atherosclerosis and stroke
- Giving rigidity AND flexibility to your bones
- Increasing bioavailability of calcium
- Preventing osteoporosis
- Preventing and reverses kidney stone formation
- Easing muscle cramps and spasms
- Preventing preeclampsia
- Ending cluster and migraine headaches
- Enhancing circulation
- Relieving fibromyalgia and chronic pain
- Treating asthma and emphysema
- Helping make proteins
The big reveal on the limitlessness of magnesium is referenced by Workinger and his team in “Challenges in the Diagnosis of Magnesium Status” in the journal Nutrients. In this 2018 study they noted that “Magnesium is a critical mineral in the human body and is involved in 80% of known metabolic functions.” This adds up to 1,000 enzyme processes and adds to the crescendo of health benefits you can count on.
So how do you get started, keep going, and sustain homeostasis and health improvements offered through a highly absorbed immediately effective product like ReMag? That’s where the guidance of Dr. Carolyn Dean comes in. Dr. Dean recommends:
1. Begin taking magnesium slowly, especially if you have a high toxin load, have a chronic disease, or are on many medications.
2. Don’t take copious amounts of magnesium without doing proper testing.
3. Be cautious about taking magnesium if you have any of the four contraindications described here.
4. Along with magnesium, take a multiple-mineral supplement [ReMyte] and follow my guidelines for adding sea salt to your drinking water. All of these are necessary to maintain mineral balance.
5. Obtain sufficient calcium (600 mg per day) in your daily diet or use a highly absorbable form of calcium as a supplement.
6. Use daily. Wash, rinse, repeat!
Not only is magnesium is absolutely essential for good health; one of the best things about magnesium supplementation is that our bodies have a fail-safe mechanism that prevents us from absorbing too much magnesium. If we consume too much magnesium in our diets or from supplements, the body rids itself of the excess by flushing it out through the bowels with diarrhea. This built-in fail-safe makes magnesium, in Dr. Dean’s opinion, one of the safest nutrients you can take.
This fail-safe was created during out evolution in a culture living near the ocean where most of humanity survived on produce from the sea. Sea water has three times more magnesium than calcium. So, the primitive diet was high in magnesium-rich foods (seaweed, fish, and shellfish), and low in calcium. Thus, it became important to eliminate too much magnesium via the bowels but grab on to as much calcium as possible via vitamin D.
In current times, we are eating high-calcium foods and calcium-fortified foods, and we’re taking far more calcium supplementation than magnesium. We also take high doses of vitamin D, which holds on to calcium, to our detriment.
