There is one supplement that I use with almost every client because it gives us such powerful results in so many different hormonal conditions.
It's a mineral that almost everyone is deficient in due to our depleted soils and chronic stress levels. Can you guess which supplement it is?
Should you try it too? Let's dig in to some of my favourite uses of magnesium:
You've probably heard of magnesium as being great for sore muscles - this is because it is a natural muscle relaxant. Guess what's also a muscle? Your uterus. Magnesium can be really effective at relieving period pain.
Magnesium is effective at reducing PMS symptoms like breast tenderness, mood changes and pre-menstrual anxiety.
Magnesium is a crucial mineral in energy production in your body. Getting enough helps you feel alert and focus throughout the day.
Magnesium helps us deal with stress better, and replaces the magnesium we've burnt through during stressful times.
Magnesium helps to lower blood sugar and improve your insulin response - great news if you are suffering from PCOS, pre-diabetes, have sugar cravings or feel sleepy after meals
Promotes restful, restorative sleep. Having adequate sleep is vital in hormone production and allowing your body to repair and restore before a new day.
Magnesium is needed in the production of oestrogen, progesterone and testosterone so getting enough helps your body produce enough of all 3 hormones.
So, as you can see magnesium is a bit of a star when it comes to many different hormonal issues.
The great thing about magnesium is it is quick to act so you often feel better within a few days of taking it.
