Magnesium is an essential mineral that plays a key role in many of the body's metabolic processes. Everyday functions like transmitting nerve impulses, maintaining muscle and heart health, and supporting immune system function simply cannot occur without adequate amounts of Magnesium. This nutrient may also be able to help promote sleep, as well as prevent insomnia. So how exactly does Magnesium affect sleep, and what can you do to increase your intake?
“What are you talking about magnesium deficiency? I’ve never heard of it, and my doctor definitely hasn’t ever mentioned it to me. Sure, iron deficiency, calcium deficiency, I’ve heard of those, those are common. But not magnesium deficiency, it can’t be that common.”
With all of the focus on viruses and viral infections since early 2019, we wanted to create a supplement (and protocol) that helps to boost the immune system, especially during the long, cold winter months. The Immune Support formula is designed to help support immune function.
Our newest supplement, Neuro Calm, is now available for purchase on our website. To narrow it down to one sentence....Neuro Calm has been specifically designed to temporarily promote relaxation, support cognitive health and/or brain function, aid in energy metabolism and in tissue formation.
In an age of health hyper-awareness, society is coming round to the notion of natural interventions to prime our immune system. The past year has brought attention to our vulnerabilities and reminded us of the hidden invaders that can occupy our bodies seemingly undetected.
Life evolved in the sea – a wonderful balanced electrolyte solution of sodium (Na+), potassium (K+), calcium (Ca++) and magnesium (Mg++) with chlorine (Cl–) and sulfate. Although the sea has become saltier (higher concentrations of sodium chloride) than it is thought to have been historically, our bodies still bathe our cells in a very similar solution that quite closely mimics seawater, just with less sodium and chloride.
To understand the role that muscles play in chronic pain, we need to take a trip back in time. Although it’s easy to see how our human world has changed immensely in the last few centuries, our biology is not much different since the time that we inhabited caves. With this is mind we are going to consider the biology of the caveman and how the functions of pain related to their life.
It took two billion years of life on earth for our cells to work out a way to produce enough energy to get beyond being small, solo entities whose main goal was to replicate themselves. Energy is the very essence of life; from acquiring energy-providing molecules to breaking them down and harnessing that energy.
While the dairy industry convinced us that we can be cool like the celebrities with milk mustaches if we consume enough milk, the medical community convinced us that if we didn’t consume enough dairy products our bones would melt.
But if some calcium helps our bones to be strong, would getting more calcium help them be even stronger?
