Magnesium for Hormonal Harmony
Many women today choose to juggle family life and children with their career, maintaining a dynamic social life, their fitness commitments (did someone say eight week challenge?!) and more. While both inspiring and empowering, this can certainly add an element of stress to day-to-day life, leading to an increased risk of hormonal imbalance1 and a greater requirement for magnesium.2
This mineral is necessary for a number of roles in the body including healthy nervous system and muscular function, restorative sleep, energy production, and more (including hormonal balance!). If your busy lifestyle leaves you feeling tired, stressed and out of balance, magnesium could be just the thing your body’s craving.
Do You Need More Magnesium?
Further, modern food processing techniques can contribute to a reduction of dietary magnesium consumed.4 If you are one of the many women with hormonal complaints such as premenstrual syndrome (PMS),5 menstrual migraine,6 polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)7and symptomatic menopause;8,9 your magnesium levels may be 20-30% lower than those who are symptom free.
