Have iron to make it red plants have magnesium to make the leaves green so we can have chlorosis in plants which could be a magnesium deficiency as well as chlorosis in humans which is anemia where a person can actually look a little green and magnesium is a very very important mineral it’s in hard water okay you have calcium and magnesium it’s in a very absorbable

Form it’s in bicarbonate okay when you heat water those bicarbonates turn into a carbonate form which makes them absorb less in our bodies and you would see it when you make your tea when you heat your water you’ll see these white little specks at the bottom of the pot so our bodies do absorb these bicarbonates very easily so hard water mineral water great source

Of magnesium as well as calcium and of course when you soften the water you take out these minerals so there’s some really interesting studies that show that hard water is actually very very good for your cardiovascular system and soft water is not now one little side note about that condition called chlorosis in plants one way to develop this condition is to over

Water the plants because all these minerals can leach out same thing happens when we drink too much water especially without minerals we dilute the minerals we have in our body and that creates all sorts of issues with our heart with our nerves and muscles however if you if you’re not drinking hard water or mineral water get your magnesium from leafy greens of

Course an average person only consumes like one and a half cups of vegetables per day but you definitely want to beef that up i want to talk about some very surprising symptoms and unique benefits of magnesium okay number one magnesium relieves muscle tightness we know that magnesium deficiencies will create cramps of the muscles but if you have tight muscles

Excessive cortisol symptoms could be a magnesium deficiency this is why magnesium helps people with stress and number nine having enough magnesium will keep your parathyroid functioning at its optimum level the parathyroid hormone helps to regulate calcium so if you’re low in calcium the parathyroid hormone will increase to help elevate calcium well guess what if

You’re deficient in magnesium the parathyroid hormone will also increase to help you retain more magnesium so any symptoms where you have high parathyroid hormone could be a magnesium deficiency all right and so the question is how do you become deficient in magnesium well you don’t need enough leafy greens number one fluoride consumption in tap water can create

A magnesium deficiency fluoride medications can also do it refined grains refined sugars will create a deficiency low hydrochloric acid in your stomach can create a problem stress will do it being a diabetic can create a deficiency this is why magnesium is so important to stabilize your blood sugars alcohol can create a deficiency and if you have a malabsorption
