7 Health Boosting Reasons To Include Magnesium In Your Diet

The Way We Are

02-09-17: Hello – hope all well and summer has gone well – despite the “interesting weather”!

I have to say that I am quite pleased I don’t have to rely on weather as I did when I was involved in the farming life…….

We have been posting newsletters out for some while now and we’re always on the look out for articles by really top natural health people to confirm what we have been taught and that could be passed on to members of our excellent subscriber lists – that would include you! I thank you for your patience and being a member of the lists.


The title of this article is very relevant now as food and drink is becoming more and more processed.

The land is not well mineralised as it used to be 50+ years ago and people have started to suffer from this as a result.

On with the notes from Mr Robert Redfern:

Magnesium is a vital mineral for good cell health. The human genome has over 3,751 binding receptor sites for magnesium and this one mineral has been known to activate over 350 biochemical processes to keep things flowing smoothly.

Here are seven health boosting reasons to include more of this amazing mineral into your diet…

1. Relieves Fibromyalgia Symptoms

In one double-blind and controlled study from the University of Texas, magnesium malate was found to improve pain and tenderness in fibromyalgia patients.

2. Lowers Disease Mortality

People who have lower magnesium levels are more than twice as likely to die of heart disease and seven times as likely to die from all causes.

3. Manage Diabetes

Those who are magnesium deficient are more likely to be Type 2 diabetic, along with experiencing neuropathy or coronary disease. One Harvard study found that diabetics who took 320mg of Magnesium for up to 16 weeks showed a significant improvement in their fasting blood sugar levels along with their HDL (good) cholesterol levels.

4. Prevent Migraines

One in 25 people in the Western World are estimated to have a migraine attack every year while 1 in 15 will experience headaches for at least 15 days of the month. These attacks can be severely debilitating, one-sided and cause throbbing and sensitivity to light and sound. Other symptoms can involve clouded thinking, congestion and nausea.

5. Lowers Colon Cancer Risk

When magnesium levels are low, there are higher rates of colorectal cancer according to epidemiological studies. The results, published in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition showed Chinese researchers covering over 338,979 participants from eight prospective studies. They found that the highest average intake of magnesium was associated with an 11% reduction in colorectal cancer, when compared with the lowest average intake. For every 50mg that the magnesium increased, the risk of colon cancer reduced by 7%.

6. Reduces Signs of Metabolic Syndrome

Mexican research looked into the effects of individuals who took oral magnesium supplements and who were considered ‘metabolically obese, normal-weight individuals’. The individuals with a body mass index under 25 were considered of normal weight but they also had hyperinsulininemia (insulin resistance). This also resulted in high triglycerides and high blood pressure. Those individuals were therefore more susceptible to the development of cardiovascular disease and diabetes.

7. Builds Strong Bones

There is a strong link between magnesium levels and bone density. The level of magnesium in the bones decreases with age and sugar and alcohol may also be lost through urine. Magnesium helps to assist calcium in building bone strength but it does more too.

By stimulating the hormone known as Calcitonin, it can draw calcium out of the blood and soft tissues, where it’s then put into the bones. When there’s excess calcium in the blood and tissues, this increases the risks of arthritis, heart attack, kidney stones or osteoporosis.

An increase in magnesium means you need less of the 1200mg of calcium per day, as recommended by the government. The study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that the increase in magnesium while lowering calcium to 500mg per day is enough to increase bone density levels.

Eat More Magnesium Rich Foods

Many healthy foods that are full of this important mineral include spinach, chard, almonds, pumpkin seeds, black beans, avocado, figs, dark chocolate and bananas. Salmon, coriander, goat’s cheese, coriander and artichokes are also rich sources. It’s worth adding in more of these foods into your diet if you want to stay healthy.

Apply Magnesium Topically

One of the best ways to ensure that you are getting enough into your body is to apply it topically onto the skin. When magnesium oil is applied topically, it is more rapidly absorbed on a cellular level than if it is taken orally. Applied as a spray, gel, lotion or as bath flakes, it’s worth experimenting with this powerful mineral to see how it fits into your lifestyle.

That is the essence of the article I found on Mr Robert Redfern’s website – full article here.

All that said – using the more magnesium rich foods is obviously likely to be more helpful – the topical applications shown in the online article are another way to go.

However, we do have a very good way to get magnesium into the body and absorbed directly – the Plant Derived Minerals we have available are a very good way to ensure that we can get this important mineral into the body.

BE aware if you may have missed the point of plant derived minerals v metallic minerals that are usually from the High Street or online – ie metallic minerals are NOT absobed well, if at all, by the human body. Plant Minerals are 100% absorbed – therefore effectively a LOT cheaper!


As Dr Rex has said many times, Curcumin is also very useful to keep inflammation at bay…..

Virtuallly all disease today including cardio-vascular disease, cancer, diabetes arthritis and even dementia are somehow caused by chronic inflammation.

This comes about because the body is too acidic. The more alkaline the diet the healthier it is.

One of the best ways to keekp the body alkaline is to eat predominantly fruit and vegetables and take the Sizzling Minerals.

Today there is a great deal of clinical information about Cercumin. It is one of the most powerful anti inflammatories available and clinical test have been done on it on a wide range of conditions.

It has been found to be exceptionally good with virtually all types of arthritis. It has be used in neurological conditions like Parkinson’t with some success.

It has also be suggested in atherosclerosis as it helps reduce the oxidised colesterol.

The latest research suggests that it has been used successfully in both depression and stress.

It seems to be recommended for everything in cludingAhzheimer’s but I think it should be taken by everyone as a preventative.

I personally take it every day with my Sizzling Minerals as getting sick just doesn’t appeal to me.

Best wishes,
