So, what are some of the ways that magnesium can enhance our physical beauty? Most people know that magnesium is very important in the absorption of calcium.Magnesium plays a significant role in bone health and maintenance as well as making the teeth harder, stronger, and whiter. Magnesium slows down the aging process in the skin because magnesium stabilizes DNA and RNA which are both negatively charged and are attracted to the positively charged magnesium. Magnesium is also needed for hair to grow properly because chronic stress can cause hair to fall out as a result of unstable blood sugar, chronic inflammation, not eating properly or getting enough sleep.
Magnesium is a very misunderstood mineral and the majority of people are unknowingly deficient in this mineral. In recent years, many people have begun to understand the health benefits of getting enough Vitamin D and so they have been wisely optimizing their intake of Vitamin D. However, because of an underlying magnesium deficiency, many of these same people experience undesirable side effects and believe the extra Vitamin D is the cause.
Eat Your Greens! – Magnesium & Diet
Since magnesium is so important for our beauty and our health, how do we ensure that we are getting enough of this mineral? Maybe, you are not aware magnesium is found at the center of the chlorophyll molecule because the capture of light energy from the sun is very dependent upon this mineral. Therefore, dark green, leafy vegetables, which are colored by chlorophyll, should be considered to be excellent sources of magnesium. Spinach is one of these green vegetables that provide us with a powerful source of magnesium. Seaweed, pumpkin and sunflower seeds are also good healthy sources of magnesium. However, whenever we cook or boil these foods, there will be a significant magnesium loss which is why the magnesium content of most refined foods is very low. So eating raw is the way to go!
David Wolfe says in his book Eating for Beauty , “The beauty of our hair, skin, and nails depends on how mineralized we are.” So why don’t you have yourself a yummy green spinach smoothie for breakfast, along with a salad with plenty of green leafy veggies for lunch tomorrow, and turn on the “lamp of life” so your beauty will shine as your body reflects the powerful benefits of magnesium!
By including magnesium in your diet every day, your beauty will be radiantly magnified!
