“Without enough magnesium, cells simply don’t work.”


This quote by Dr. Lawrence Resnik, former Professor of Medicine at Cornell Medical School, sums up why it is so important that you consume magnesium daily.


Your cells are literally missing a SPARK! ⚡️


If you suffer from fatigue, you’re likely deficient in magnesium!

Magnesium is responsible for approximately 80% of the body’s metabolic processes, including:

▶️Energy production and metabolism
▶️Protein, carb, and fat metabolism
▶️Muscle function (contraction and relaxation)
▶️Proper heart function
▶️Blood pressure regulation


Interestingly, low levels of magnesium are linked to a variety of illnesses, such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, mood disorders, and migraines. Estrogen dominance has also been linked to magnesium deficiency as it’s needed for healthy estrogen detoxification.


The Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) for adults is 310-320 mg for women, but most women that we work with need more, due to nutritional deficiencies and STRESS.


Stress will deplete magnesium levels, so we sometimes recommend as much as 5 x your bodyweight in mg.

For example: 140 pounds X 5 = 700mg per day.

I personally aim to get anywhere from 400-700mg daily of magnesium from both food and supplements.

Supplementing with magnesium is helpful, but I always push our clients to lean into food sources first.

Nutrition support for magnesium: * Spinach * Pumpkin Seeds * Avocados * Hemp Seeds * Swiss Chard * Dark Chocolate * Almonds * Cashews * Mackerel * Banana * Plantain

Are you getting enough magnesium in your diet?


If not, start adding some of the foods above to your regular rotation and/or grab some magnesium from my . Just sign up for an account  and then search my favorites for magnesium glycinate, which is a good all-around option for stress, anxiety, and sleep.
