Email Image Happy Monday! Here are 5 simple ways to improve your magnesium levels. Not only should we focus on incorporating more magnesium-rich foods, supplements, and external sources, but removing stress is just as important. If we keep dumping water into our bucket with a hole, we will always be left empty and frustrated.  1. Sodium: Dr. Peat, Ph.D., has stated many times that getting enough sodium in the diet helps to retain magnesium, but both of these minerals are easily lost when thyroid function is low. When the thyroid status is good, the requirement for magnesium CAN be met by ordinary foods. We recommend consuming more organic forms of sodium naturally found in food rather than hard rock salt. If you do decide to consume lots of rock salt, then opt for Icelandic or Maldon sea salt, which naturally has copious amounts of bioavailable minerals present. As we discussed, though, in today’s world, we recommend supplementing with lots of magnesium in both bicarbonate form (internal) and chloride (externally) on the feet. Check out our fat blog; we have a salt section in there that goes into much more depth on this topic. 2. Reduce Stress: This one goes without saying, but the more stress you have, the more nutrients you need (especially magnesium). Stress doesn’t just deplete vital nutrients but also lowers thyroid function. So keep calm and magnesium on! (Cheesy) 3. Bone Broth & Boiled Veggies (Avoid the Fiber): Both are great sources of minerals if you do a slow boil and drink it slowly throughout the day like a soup. Opt for the highest quality source of veggies and bones you can find (Grass-fed, Organic, Avoid NPK Soil and tap water-grown veggies if you can). 4. Epsom Salt and Magnesium Chloride Baths: Try soaking at least 1-3 times per week in a hot bath (check out our bath blog on this) with a lot of magnesium chloride flakes and/or our magnesium bath bottle. You can add in baking soda and other minerals as well. Be sure to hydrate before, during, and after because you will lose a lot of fluids from sweating! 5. Supplements: The two best forms of magnesium we recommend supplementing with are magnesium bicarbonate (internal) and magnesium chloride spray (external), sprayed on the feet and massaged anywhere on the body. We sell both of these, and we just released our new magnesium chloride product that contains Hydrosol to lessen the burn effect from chloride that most people experience. We sell these two forms because we believe they are the most bioavailable forms on the planet. Dr. Peat has written extensively on magnesium and sodium and their deficiencies in hypothyroidism. He has often stated that he recommends magnesium in the forms of carbonate or bicarbonate (better) and is not opposed to magnesium glycinate. Check out some of these quotes below from Dr. Peat about magnesium: “The toxic effects of excessive intracellular calcium (decreased respiration and increased excitation) are opposed by magnesium. Both thyroid and progesterone improve magnesium retention. Estrogen dominance is often associated with magnesium deficiency, which can be an important factor in osteoporosis (Abraham and Grewal, 1990; Muneyyirci-Delale, et al., 1999).” “So in many situations, magnesium imitates thyroid function, but the two together really are simply energizing the tissue; and you can go from crampy legs, or many old people get “jumpy legs” — a funny sensation that makes their legs kick when they try to go to sleep — you can go from that hyperactivity of the legs to many other conditions including heart rhythm problems, insomnia, muscle pains in general, many states that are considered degenerative diseases, but are simply low thyroid/low magnesium states that prevent efficient energy production.” “When you take thyroid, it energizes your cells to make ATP, and it happens that ATP binds magnesium, so you don’t really take up magnesium into the cell very efficiently unless you have adequate thyroid. And when you are low in thyroid, you tend to lose magnesium during stress, and chronically that leads to a crampy, inefficient condition where you waste oxygen, producing your energy, but you can’t retain it because of the lack of magnesium.” In Christ, Nick & Nathan Check Out Our Website Mitigate Stress © Mitigate Stress Inc 2021 All Rights Reserved.
