Self-Assessment: Am I Magnesium Deficient?
One of the easiest things you can do to improve your health is to avoid being in a magnesium deficient state.*
And sadly, magnesium deficiency is running rampant among Americans.
One study sponsored by the National Institutes of Health shows that 68% of Americans are magnesium deficient (1). Other experts put the number closer to 80% (2).
Here's a list of common complaints associated with magnesium deficiency.*
How many do you identify with?
- I get muscle cramps, spasms or twitches.*
- I have trouble sleeping at night.*
- I'm stressed out.*
- I have a hard time keeping my bowel movements regular.*
- I always feel tired.*
- I get headaches.*
- I crave chocolate.*
- I have low energy.*
- I struggle to feel calm and slow my anxious thoughts.*
- I have poor bone health.* (2)
- I have mind fog.*
- I get mood swings.*
- My heart races for no apparent reason.* (3)
If you're like 80% of the population, you identified with several of these.
Thankfully, there's a simple solution -- get more magnesium.
Is it possible to get enough magnesium through diet alone?
The short answer is yes… with a “but”.
Ounce for ounce, almonds are one of the best food sources of magnesium. So, we sent a bag of organic, sprouted almonds to a lab so they could analyze the mineral content.
And here’s what they found…
In one ounce of organic almonds (about 23 almonds), there is 71mg of magnesium.
Now, according to the FDA, the minimum Recommended Daily Intake (RDI) of this nutrient is 420mg… that means you would need to eat at least 6 ounces of organic almonds -- that's 138 almonds and almost 1,000 calories every day.
So, What's the easiest, most effective way to reverse a magnesium deficiency?
