Number ONE miracle nutrient for healthy periodsApr 22, 2021
Do you know what the number one miracle nutrient is for healthy periods?
If you guessed MAGNESIUM, you guessed correctly!
If you live a modern-day life with regular stressors consisting of the pandemic, work, family, etc. …you are most likely deficient in magnesium!
The reason being is the modern world is stressful, stress depletes magnesium which is unfortunate because during stress magnesium is what we need the most since it's got that calming "chill pill" effect...
Here is how this works: magnesium soothes and calms your nervous system, and helps with sleep. It also decreases inflammation and helps get rid of those dreadful PMS symptoms.
There are two ways of replenishing your magnesium levels - through food and supplements.
We absorb magnesium through food, next time you go grocery shopping add these to your cart:
- Dark leafy vegetables
- Dark chocolate
- Whole grains
Often, food is not enough so you might need to supplement. I recommend a dose of 300-600 milligrams daily, the ones I recommend are either magnesium bis-glycinate or magnesium citrate if you suffer from constipation.
I always prefer food to pills yet it's inevitable that sometimes that's just not enough. When working with me 1:1, we assess your individual needs for nutrition to make sure you get the right supplements that yield the best results when it comes to your individual body, along with many other things!
