If you’re focused on living a healthy life and making sure your body gets the nutrients it needs, magnesium shouldn’t be left out. Magnesium is essential to keeping your body running well - it helps maintain blood pressure and sugar levels, as well as regulating nerve and muscle function and making DNA, protein, and bone. Unfortunately most people living in the United States do not getting enough magnesium. The amount you need depends upon your age and gender, but older men and teen girls are particularly vulnerable to magnesium deficiency.The Signs of Magnesium Deficiency
Fatigue is the most common side effect of magnesium deficiency, and because so many of us are exhausted so often, it is often not detected. Because magnesium produces and transports energy, it is crucial that you get enough.
Muscle cramps and what are commonly called “Charlie Horses,” can be incredibly painful, and can be caused by magnesium deficiency. Dehydration can also be a cause, so every muscle cramp isn’t due to a lack of magnesium, but if you hydrate well and still cramp, magnesium could be the issue.
Arrhythmia, an irregular heartbeat, can be caused by a lack of magnesium because the nutrient is essential to heart health. Muscle contraction requires magnesium, and of course your heart is your most important muscle.
Getting Enough Magnesium
There are many other symptoms of magnesium deficiency you should keep watch for, including dizziness, nausea, numbness, and even personality changes, insomnia, and anxiety attacks. Diabetics in particular should watch for magnesium deficiency because the nutrient is significant in metabolizing sugar.
Now that we’ve given you all the reasons to worry, it is only fair that we also clarify that getting enough magnesium is not difficult. You can get magnesium through your diet by eating legumes, whole grains, leafy green veggies, nuts, milk, yogurt and fortified cereals. A way to ensure that you consistently get sufficient magnesium is to use a supplement. Our Multivitamin patch provides your body with the amount of vitamins, including magnesium, and other nutrients you need to live your healthiest life.

Because herbs come from nature, many people believe they're safe to take at any time. But, that's simply not true. In fact, many herbs
should not be taken while trying to conceive or during pregnancy and post-partum, while breastfeeding. The constituents of plants -
phytochemicals and other active compounds - can interact with hormones that circulate during the prenatal period and as the fetus is developing.
Some herbs can stimulate the uterus to contract. And, if you have other health conditions for which medication is prescribed, there is
potential for a drug-herb interaction...
Commonly known as NAC, N-acetylcysteine is an amino
acid that supports critical functions and helps
fight infection. Our body manufactures NAC
using the cysteine from the foods we ingest. Sources
include most meats and certain plants, including
broccoli, red pepper and onion. Bananas,
garlic, soy beans, linseed (aka, flax seed) and
wheat germ also contain cysteine.
The splitting pain of an earache: while mostly common
in children, adults can also be affected. We all know
the itchy, scratchy, stuffy, feverish, achy feelings
that come with a sore throat and a head cold, but ear
pain is probably the worst. It starts with an overworked
immune system, affecting one of our most vulnerable
systems - the respiratory tract - which includes the
mouth, throat, nose and ears.
