Ladies, you might want to start taking THIS!
Ladies, we know there are literally a million things on the internet that recommend you take everything from turmeric to calcium to fish oil and more.
Now thanks to Eat This, nutritionists Lyssie Lakatos, RDN, CDN, CFT & Tammy Lakatos, RDN, CDN, CFT, have finally answered the important question. What is the best supplement for women to be taking? The answer is magnesium.
“Most women are told to get calcium and they focus on that and take supplements. However, when it comes to stress, this can backfire if you don’t have enough magnesium,” the two nutritionists explained. “During periods of stress, calcium moves into the cell as part of the fight or flight response and if there’s not enough magnesium to push it back out of the cell, you can’t promote relaxation. This, in turn, means that frequent stress (stemming from pollution, daily life, and emotional experiences) continues to take its toll physically and emotionally.”
“Magnesium is one of the best supplements women can take. Our bodies need magnesium for more than 300 essential biochemical reactions including producing energy, helping muscles to relax and nervous system regulation, but most of us don’t get enough magnesium from dietary sources alone,” the two explained. “Given that magnesium plays an important role in factors that have a large impact for women such as bone and heart health, promoting relaxation, reducing anxiety and depression and PMS symptoms as well as preventing migraines, magnesium supplementation can be especially beneficial for women.”
We strongly recommend speaking to your doctor before starting any new supplements but magnesium could be the answer you have been looking for.
