ANTI-AGING: Chill Out and Live Longer

march-vit-last-one.jpgHave a bit of a nervous edge that’s now showing up as lines on your face? Can you turn this around? Yes – there is an essential nutrient you may be deficient in. Find out about its anti-aging benefits.

It’s well known that you need enough calcium in your diet. Calcium benefits your heart, bones, nerves and muscles. What is less known is that you need an adequate amount of magnesium in your body to balance the calcium. A lack of magnesium most noticeably affects your nerves. You literally become more nervous and stressed if you lack magnesium. There are very few, if any, poor health conditions that cannot be linked to stress. Plus it’s just not fun to be in this condition, it’s much more productive to be relaxed. If you’re interested in an anti-aging lifestyle, the last thing you want is to be nervous and stressed out!

How does magnesium factor into this?

Calcium is essential to excite the nerves which then contract the muscles. Magnesium is necessary to calm the nerves, which relaxes the muscles. A lack of magnesium keeps the nerves excited, which keeps the muscles contracted, and results in a number of undesirable, ‘nervous’ conditions such as irritability, sleeplessness, muscle tension, anxiousness, headaches, worsened PMS, irregular heart beat, fatigue and weakness.

Many people develop or have magnesium deficiencies. Our diets are more and more made up of processed foods, which completely lack magnesium. Green vegetables are a good source of magnesium, as well as nuts and seeds, certain legumes (beans and peas), and unrefined, whole grain products. To ensure you’re getting enough you may want to take a supplement. Calm your nerves and yield the anti-aging effects as a result.
