The Journal of Intensive Care Medicine published a study which showed that magnesium deficiency doubles the chances of death, and causes numerous diseases and health issues.
Even though it can be used as a preventative measure, more than half of the population in the United States lacks it. Magnesium is the most powerful relaxation mineral, it improves sleep, and is an antidote to stress.
Doctors use magnesium all the time, and not many are aware of the reason for it. This critical “medication” is given in the case of a life-threatening arrhythmia intravenously, and in the case of constipation or a preparation for a colonoscopy, patients receive milk of magnesia or a green bottle of liquid magnesium citrate.
Moreover, continuous high doses of intravenous magnesium are given to pregnant women who come in with pre-term labor, or high blood pressure of pregnancy (pre-eclampsia) or seizures.
Magnesium relaxes, so every single sign of irritation, tightness, stiffness, and cramps in the body is actually a sign of its deficiency.
