If you’ve heard a lot about magnesium lately, it’s for good reason!⁠ Wondering about the different types of magnesium and which one is best for you?

And… if you have hormonal imbalance, listen up! ⁠

Our bodies actually DON’T run on hormones. Instead, they run on 9,000 enzymes… and just a handful of minerals activate these enzymes – magnesium being one of them! ⁠

Magnesium is associated with 3,751 enzymes, and it’s the catalyst for over 600 chemical reactions in the body. Amazing, right? ⁠

Clearly, magnesium is a BIG DEAL, but most of us are deficient in this important mineral. In fact, it’s estimated that up to 2/3 of Americans are deficient in magnesium. ⁠

Even if you’re eating plenty of spinach, avocados, and pumpkin seeds, you’re still likely to be low in magnesium. ⁠

Symptoms of magnesium deficiency

  • Osteoporosis⁠
  • Depression⁠
  • PMS⁠
  • Cardiovascular disease⁠
  • Noise sensitivity⁠
  • Hypothyroidism⁠
  • Anxiety⁠
  • Hyperactivity⁠
  • Tremors⁠
  • Excessive sweating⁠

Stress (!!), pregnancy, and coffee consumption can deplete magnesium, so sometimes it’s helpful to supplement with the right type of magnesium.⁠

There are 8 common types of magnesium, each with their own benefits and disadvantages. The ones listed below include just some of the benefits of each to get you started with choosing the best option. Be sure to do your own research and talk to your doctor before adding one to your regimen. ⁠


Different types of magnesium

I personally use magnesium glycinate because it’s generally well-absorbed and helpful for anxiety and restful sleep. ⁠

How much magnesium should you take?⁠

The RDA for adult females is 310 mg (and 350 mg for pregnant females), but some people might need higher (or lower) doses of magnesium for optimal health. Some of our clients take anywhere from 500-700 mg daily. Again, talk to your doctor and do what’s best for you! ⁠
