Magnesium has been by far my favorite supplement, and one that has been critical for me to take daily.
Years ago, I was having muscle spasms and what felt like stabbing pain in my muscles. It took me a few months to realize that by taking magnesium, these symptoms went away.
I switched over to @livonlabs magnesium supplement 2 months ago, which I have been benefiting from even more. I have realized that there are some key factors of when it comes to effectiveness for me including: ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ▫️ FREQUENCY: I take magnesium everyday. When I don’t, previous symptoms start to come back slowly, even when I skip just two consecutive days. I notice it first in my neck, where my neck starts to tense up and it becomes painful. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ▫️DOSAGE – When the magnesium becomes a laxative, I take just a little below that amount. 500mg a day is the minimum amount I aim for. Anything less than this does not do much. @livonlabs pouches are 1,000mg a day which I take 1-2x daily. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ▫️FORM – Liquid form works best for me.
Liposomal nutrients, specific to @livonlabs magnesium supplements, achieve maximum absorption in the bloodstream and cells by bypassing absorption barriers without relying on transport systems. This allows my body to really absorb the supplement that I am taking in order to get the full benefits.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀
More facts on magnesium: ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀ ▫️About half the US population is deficient in magnesium. Modern agricultural practices deplete soil of magnesium, leading to less magnesium in the foods we eat.
▫️Many common medications also deplete magnesium levels ( I believe my magnesium levels were depleted years ago after being on a birth control pill for a short period.) These muscle spasms started shortly after that time. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ▫️Anxiety relief – I notice that when I haven’t taken magnesium for a few days, in addition to my muscles starting to tighten up, I also feel a bit more anxious. ⠀⠀
