What are the factors that affect your magnesium deficiency, and why it is so important to restore it for your mental and emotional health? RD&T’s contributing writer, Dr. Maya Sarkisyan, explains.
It is surprising to me how many people I test for nutrient deficiency are low in magnesium. The micronutrient test is one of the favorites in my clinic, and the results of it generally clearly correlate with my patient’s symptoms. Magnesium is one of these minerals that is involved in so many biochemical reactions that it makes it extremely important, not only for physical health, but also for regulating emotions.
It is crucially important in DNA translation, production of neurotransmitters such as serotonin, dopamine, GABA, and others. The correct levels of it are essential for functioning and regeneration of bones, heart, and brain, and it has to be present in every cell of your body.
