Are You Taking Enough Magnesium?
Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in our body and while it is critical in human health, its role is highly underappreciated.
Our diet provides less than half of the recommended daily allowance of 320-420mg/day and 50-75% of the population is chronically magnesium deficient. Magnesium deficiency has been associated with advanced age, stress, excessive alcohol consumption, smoking, and diseases affecting the digestive tract, liver, and kidneys. Drugs such as diuretics further remove the available magnesium in the body. Magnesium deficiency is not easy to identify because it lacks specific symptoms. It can manifest as dizziness, difficulty in concentration, irritability, fatigue, anxiety, depression, constipation, headaches, and muscle cramps.
Maintain A Healthy Prostate Naturally
The prostate gland is a part of the male reproductive system. This small gland is approximately the size of a walnut and is located deep inside the pelvis below the urinary bladder and above the muscles of the pelvic floor. The prostate gland plays an important role in reproduction by contributing prostatic fluid into the semen, giving the semen its fluidity. The seminal fluid in turn helps in the survival and mobility of the sperm. The prostate gland is also important for the conversion of the male sex hormone testosterone to its biologically active form.
