You might be low in magnesium and may need supplements. Magnesium is used in our bodies for a multitude of processes, including those that help slow the signs of aging. Stress, coffee, and diuretics can all further reduce your magnesium levels.
Find your magnesium number by asking your doctor for a simple blood test. It’s not included in the standard CBC. You need to make an additional request for this test. The accepted range is wide so even if you’re within normal limits, ask the doctor for your number. You may be at the very bottom of acceptable limits and may be a candidate for magnesium supplements. Magnesium can be supplemented through oral capsules, salt baths, lotions, and sprays which give you many choices to increase this important nutrient in a way that suits your lifestyle.
