A secret, scientific weapon in your battle against your WEIGHT & PRE-MENSTRUAL BLOATING… And it helps with all sorts of other health issues too!!!
You need MAGNESIUM to stay healthy… hundreds of reactions in your body depend on it.
Not only does magnesium help fight against pre-mentrual bloating BUT according to a recent study, magnesium actually helps with WEIGHT LOSS . This study suggests that “HIGHER DIETARY MAGNESIUM INTAKE IS STRONGLY ASSOCIATED WITH LOWER INSULIN LEVELS” – in other words, IT HELPS TO MAKE YOU LESS LIKELY TO GAIN WEIGHT. The study also found that higher dietary magnesium intake was “more beneficial for obese and overweight people”… Interesting huh!
*** THINGS THAT MAY REDUCE YOUR MAGNESIUM LEVELS:
– Too much salt, alcohol, coffee, fizzy drinks
– Chronic stress
– Certain diseases (inc Kidney disease, diabetes, irritable bowel syndrome)
Our bodies need loads of magnesium and we don’t do a great job of storing magnesium so we must make sure to either get it through the food we eat or a magnesium supplement. The Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) for adults over 30 is 320 mg per day for woman (and 420 mg per day for men). About 70% of adult Americans have a magnesium deficiency so it’s worth making sure (wherever you are in the world) you’re not one of them!
*** FOODS RICH IN MAGNESIUM
– Leafy greens (e.g. Spinach)
– Beans (e.g. soy beans, black beans, lima beans)
– Nuts & seeds
– Raw Oat bran
– Fish (e.g. Halibut)
