To understand what a low magnesium spiral is we first need to understand what magnesium is.
Magnesium is a mineral found in the earth, sea, plants, animals and humans.
Many studies have show that low magnesium causes an increased amount of inflammation in the body.
This is an issue with the adrenal glands because they are the anti-inflammatory glands of the body.
Too much stress on the adrenals can cause, anxiety, depression, fatigue, insomnia, food cravings, pain, belly fat and irritability.
In addition, this increase in adrenal stress can create further chemical reactions in the body that will create a worsening of the magnesium deficiency.
This is where the downward spiral of magnesium comes into play.
This vicious downward spiral can go on and on and on.
Now add everyday stress in the picture and here comes the anxiety, burned out sensation, so on and so forth. The downward spiral has now kicked into high gear.
So, what can we do about this downward spiral? A great way to get magnesium into your diet is by adding the following foods:
Nuts that are particularly high in magnesium include almonds and Brazil nuts. Brazil nuts are also extremely high in selenium. Make sure that you soak the nuts overnight.
