THE NEED FOR MORE MAGNESIUM
Alhamdulilah praise God, its been 28 days and I’ve had no coffee, not even coffee sweets. My health was getting so bad particularly migraines, anxiety and stomach pains. The following article is a bit of my personal thoughts mixed with a cut and paste from other websites, that illustrates why magnesium is so essential and the lack of it distrastrous to the health.
The body does not store magnesium and it is easily blocked from absorbing into the body by drinking coffee, as well as other things. Coffee affects the lining of the stomahc and prevents the absorbtion of Magnesium.
According to the US National Library of Medicine , a paper entitled “ Magnesium and Drugs” which says “A variety of drugs including antibiotics, chemotherapeutic agents, diuretics and proton-pumpinhibitors can cause magnesium loss and hypomagnesemia.”
Magnesium is one of the most important mineral, remember vitamins and minerals, that the body needs.
They body does not store magnesium.
