Magnesium deficiency triggers or causes the following conditions:
Anxiety and Panic attacks– Magnesium keeps adrenal stress hormones under control.
Asthma– Both histamine production and bronchial spasms increase with Mg deficiency.
Depression-Serotonin, which elevates moods, is dependent on Mg. A Mg-deficient brain is also more susceptible to allergens, foreign substances that can cause symptoms like mental illness.
Detoxification– Mg is crucial for the removal of toxic substances and heavy metals such as aluminium and lead.
Diabetes– Mg enhances insulin secretion, facilitating sugar metabolism. Without Mg insulin is not able to transfer glucose into cells. Glucose and insulin build up causing various tissue damage.
Fatigue- Mg-deficient patients commonly experience fatigue because dozens of enzyme systems are under-functioning. An early symptom of Mg deficiency is frequently fatigue.
Insomnia– Sleep-regulating melatonin production is disturbed without sufficient Mg.
Kidney Disease- Mg deficiency contributes to atherosclerotic kidney failure. Mg deficiency creates abnormal lipid levels and worsening blood sugar control in kidney transplant patients.
Migraine- Serotonin balance is Mg-dependent. Deficiency of serotonin can result in migraine headaches and depression.
