( — November 29, 2016) Orlando, FL — Today, there are many pharmaceutical drugs formulated to help fight a range of diseases and disorders as well as their symptoms. However, it is also undeniable that certain natural ingredients, such as minerals, have been becoming increasingly popular as alternative options.

The National Institutes of Health reveal that magnesium may be a wonder alternative. However, not many people actually know about this. There are also some healthcare providers who strongly recommend increasing magnesium intake.

There are many potential health benefits believed to be offered by magnesium. It may offer the ability to maintain the nerves and muscles as well as regulate blood sugar levels. It is thought to have the capacity to promote normal blood pressure as well as reduce the risk of heart attacks.

There are those who suffer from multiple sclerosis symptoms that use magnesium supplements in hopes to eliminate spasms and jumpy legs. Many tried using prescription medications but were dismayed by the side effects that may be associated with them.

Dr. Carolyn Dean, MD, Naturopath, is the author of the book called The Magnesium Miracle. According to Dr. Dean, almost 80% of individuals in the United States are magnesium deficient. Such a deficiency has been recognized as a factor for diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and most muscular problems.

According to the NIH, magnesium is required in over 3000 biochemical reactions in the body. It is even involved in protein synthesis and energy metabolism.

Very large studies have even revealed that individuals with magnesium-rich diets may be at a reduced risk of getting type 2 diabetes.

According to an article, increased blood-glucose levels may enhance loss of magnesium in the urine. This is believed to reduce blood levels of magnesium. In cases of diabetes, getting enough magnesium may be extremely important.

Despite the undeniable uses of magnesium, only a few medical authorities recommend it. This is why it can also be called a forgotten mineral.

The Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) is 350 to 400 milligrams per day. However, to achieve optimum health, doubling this amount is sometimes recommended. The Standard American Diet (SAD) has very little magnesium, and this is due to various factors such as soil depletion.

There are many food items, such as seaweed, that are rich in magnesium. Individuals who want to increase their intake of the mineral may also turn to magnesium supplements.

There is a magnesium oil spray that is gaining popularity today. One of the things that make this option so popular is that when it is sprayed on the skin, up to 60% of it may be absorbed by the body. Thus, it is a potentially beneficial way of delivering magnesium and its effects.
