What IS MAGNESIUM?
Magnesium is one of the most essential minerals for our health. It is necessary for maintaining proper nerve and muscle function and acts as a cofactor to build DNA, RNA, and many proteins. Unfortunately, it is commonly deficient in the Canadian population due to poor diet, medication, and stress. Deficiency can create a pro-inflammatory state in the body, which may have numerous health implications.
Symptoms of magnesium deficiency may include muscle cramps, tremors, muscle weakness, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, constipation, irregular heartbeat, and even seizures. In some cases, a magnesium deficiency can also lead to anxiety, depression, and insomnia.
Magnesium has many forms— Bisgylcinate, Citrate, L-Threonate, Taurate, Chloride, Malate, and more. Every form of magnesium can support different areas of the brain and body to help with optimal health. For example, studies have shown that acute migraines and headaches can be caught and treated with orthomolecular doses of magnesium and other medication intravenously for fast-acting management.
Our Naturopathic Physicians recommend exploring all the options in a Naturopathic Assessment or IV Assessment to address what concerns you may have and to correctly choose the supplementation that would best support your overall health and well-being.
If you have recently been struggling with a migraine or headache, feeling lethargic, or looking to boost your energy levels, we highly recommend booking an IV Assessment. Our Naturopathic Physicians will put together an IV Infusion that utilizes a complex of all trace minerals and combine them with other nutrients and amino acids to support your specific needs and concerns.
