Although we have talked in general about lots of people being low in magnesium, it begs the querstion are you low in Magnesium? Given we can't take a test, what are the signs you can look for to see if you are low magnesium?
Times of hyperactivity
Difficulty getting to sleep
Difficulty staying asleep
Muscle spams and muscle cramping
Eye twitches or involuntary evey movements
In clinic we often see clients who's muscles are really tight or contracted. Without magnesium in our body our muscles would be in a constant state of contraction. It should be noted that calcium causes our muscles to contract. While calcium and magnesium have actions that oppose each other they function as a team. So you must always consider your calcium levels when considering your magnesium levels.
