Magnesium and Hormones
Do you take magnesium? Magnesium is a key supplement that I take every single night.
Here are some highlights on the benefits of magnesium.
As my customers will tell you, I recommend magnesium for almost every hormonal condition, including PCOS, thyroid, hair loss, PMS, migraines, and perimenopause. I love magnesium because it makes people feel better almost immediately.
What’s up with this mineral? Why are we all so deficient? We’re deficient because our cells dump magnesium during stress. We actively push it out of our bodies as a way to rev up our nervous system and cope with daily life.
A revved-up nervous system is what an average modern human needs to get through an average modern day. If you work, commute, drink coffee or worry, then you are deficient in magnesium. If you don’t do one of the above are you even human?

Magnesium is a big player in emergency rooms, where it treats heart arrhythmias, heart attack, and migraines. We also use it to treat preterm labor and stabilize patients with pregnancy induced hypertension in labor and delivery.
