What are Signs of Low Magnesium Levels?
Many people know what magnesium is; however, they often do not know how important it can be for their health. It is called the master mineral, because it is involved in over 300 metabolic processes in our bodies. It is possible to have a magnesium deficiency. People can be suffering from symptoms and not realize it is from low magnesium levels.

For the proper transportation of calcium across cell membranes, our bodies need magnesium. There are several other nutrients that calcium needs, such as Vitamin K, Vitamin D, and silica. Without these and magnesium, calcium can build up in the blood. This condition can cause heart issues because of arterial plaque that is calcified.

In order for vitamins to absorb properly in the body, minerals must be present. Because of modern farming methods that use chemicals for pesticides and fertilizer, many valuable minerals have been depleted from the topsoil. Most of the topsoil is missing magnesium—up to 80% loss. The 20% remaining in the food is below the optimum recommended daily allowance.

Even though is helpful for people to observe their bodies for signs of deficiency, they should get a specialized test done that will determine low magnesium levels. It is called the Exa Test ™. Blood tests are not always accurate for measuring magnesium, because this mineral accumulates in nerve and organ tissue. A person can get a false positive and still be deficient in magnesium levels.
Symptoms of Magnesium Deficiency
Watching symptoms is the best way for doctors to diagnose a deficiency, if the test is not available. Many of the symptoms relating to low magnesium levels are present in the heart, neurological, and musculoskeletal disorders. There are so many symptoms because of the various roles that magnesium plays in cellular metabolic functions.

Magnesium is an anti-inflammatory mineral. It can help protect against Alzheimer’s and arthritis. It has shown success in treating ailments such as diabetes,
hypertension, and respiratory problems. A lack of magnesium could lead to many
Common Sings of Low Magnesium Levels
These are some common signs of low magnesium levels:

• Memory problems
• Confusion
• Swallowing difficulties (dysphagia)
• Low potassium
• Tiredness all the time
• Breathing problems
• Hypertension
• Diabetes (Type II)
• Anxiety
• Nausea
• Muscle cramps
• Tremors
• Weakness
• Cardiac weakness
• Low calcium
• Calcium deficiency
• Poor heart health
• Weakness

Just because someone is experiencing these symptoms, it does not automatically indicate a magnesium deficiency.

The Benefits
Overdosing while magnesium supplementing is almost impossible; however, taking too much magnesium is not good for the body. Too much can cause slowed breathing and irregular heartbeats. Just like Vitamin C, the bowels can only take so much magnesium. Diarrhea can result with excess. Not all supplements of magnesium are easily absorbed. One of the best that doctors recommend is magnesium citrate. Magnesium oil can also be applied topically.

Some people would rather get their minerals through whole foods. Fortunately, there are plenty of foods that are rich in magnesium:

• Okra
• Sesame seeds
• Almonds
• Spinach
• Squash
• Cashews
• Black beans
• Sunflower seeds
• Soybeans
• Pumpkin seeds

Eating a diet that contains some of these foods can help reverse.
I got some at the Apple Festival for my legs and I am almost out about to have a fit wanting to get more because this stuff works. My knees and legs hurt and since I have been using it they don't hurt as much I have only been using it once a day to stretch out what I have and when I get more I will definitely use it twice a day. I missed one day and woke up with my legs and knees hurting. I will never miss again. I have tried the bath salts and so has my friend they work great too. Can't wait to get more. Thanks for everything.

As you know, I have been a believer from day one. My husband has always been a bit hard headed and it took me awhile to convince him to give it a try. He has had a bad shoulder for years. He refuses surgery, so his only recourse has been steroid injections and enough ibuprofen to supply a small village. Needless to say, he now comes to me every morning with the oil and cream in hand, the one/two punch if you will:) He came home in a lot of pain today, the first day in weeks that he has felt that bad, and guess what, we forgot to use the MG12 this morning! I immediately ran upstairs and grabbed it and within minutes, he was feeling so much better!! It is not joke that the relief is INSTANT! Thank you for sharing the miracle of Magnesium!

I've had knee and back pain for many years and after having lumbar injections I received my mg12. I rubbed my knees in the oil last night so today I decided to tackle the bathtub for which I couldn't use for years because it was too painful. My knees felt so much better this morning that I didn't groan when I stood up. So I filled the tub with warm water and my dead sea salts. I was surprised how little pain I had while sitting down. Remember it's been years since I was able to take a bath. As I relaxed I cried like a baby. It felt so good. I'm looking forward to what I hope is the best nights sleep I've had in a long time. I can't thank you enough Mg12. The best stress reliever as well as joint pain relief.

Your magnesium oil and body balm are saving my step-father's leg! He had a lower leg amputation three years ago due to problems with circulation and we have been trying so hard to save his other leg. The swelling and discoloration were severe. We began using the Magnesport Oil on his leg about two months ago and noticed the swelling was decreasing. I called your company and spoke with the owner, Tom Strader, telling him how thrilled we are with the incredible results of using the oil. Mr. Strader recommended we use the Body Balm too. Once we began applying the Body Balm, along with the oil, the swelling began to decrease even more. Life from the Dead Sea is being brought into and healing my step-father's leg! It truly is a miracle! Hallelujah! Thank you!
