Human body naturally requires this uniquely beneficial mineral in order to stay healthy. Low-magnesium diets have been linked, through research, to low testosterone levels which may cause low and/or irritable moods in both men and women, especially during the menopause. Ingesting magnesium via supplements or diet may also help relieve the feelings of worry and tension.
For women, maintaining optimal testosterone levels is important for managing metabolism, mood, energy, and libido among other functions. Testosterone and other important hormone levels naturally decline during the pre-menopause and menopause, so this is when it becomes more vital than ever to address one’s nutritional habits with a view to supporting optimal levels of testosterone and other hormones, as is paying attention to our overall lifestyle. A few, seemingly simple changes of habit can significantly improve our overall quality of life.
A Magnesium-rich diet is vital for the body’s ability to digest food and other supplements into required energy fuel, which is needed to keep us going throughout the day. Without the recommended levels of magnesium in the diet, the nutrients one takes in through food and other supplements cannot be adequately and thoroughly metabolized into energy, leaving you feeling tired and sluggish.
