|Magnesium is for Muscles!|
Restless Leg Syndrome
Difficulty Falling Asleep
Anxiety and Depression
High Blood Pressure
Hmmmm.... I know almost every client I see has at least one of these symptoms. While in college I had to create a poster depicting the Krebs Cycle, AKA-Metabolism. It was amazing how almost every process needed magnesium in order for it to function properly.
I avoided taking a magnesium supplement for a while, but then it's allure got to me. Taking a couple hundred milligrams before bed is amazing! It really does help my body relax and put me to sleep fast, especially when I am stressed about school. Ryan loves that it helps his achey muscles relax after hard workouts.
If you are not interested in taking a magnesium supplement, make sure to include foods high in magnesium in your diet. These include: Grass Fed Beef, Salmon, Leafy Greens, Nuts/Seeds.
A meal plan high in magnesium might look something like this...
Breakfast: Scrambled Eggs over sauteed kale
Lunch: Large Spinach Salad with Canned Salmon, and Sunflower Seeds.
Dinner: Grilled steak with lots of veggies!
Bed Time Snack: Slice of Whole Grain Toast with Almond Butter
