According to The World Health Organization, up to 80 percent of Americans are deficient in magnesium. Here are 10 signs that you may be among those affected.
Magnesium is required in our body’s reactions that create the chemical adenosine triphosphate, which is the main source of energy in our cells. Therefore, without magnesium in our systems, we would literally not have any energy on a cellular level and would feel fatigued.
In a study by the Human Nutrition Research Center of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. women who had magnesium deficiencies were reported to have higher heart rates and required more oxygen to do normal physical tasks.
