If you have a neurological injury and you have muscle cramps or you have difficulty sleeping then the information in this blog can really help you.
Today I want to talk to you about magnesium. Did you know magnesium is one of our vital minerals that the body needs for optimal function?!
Can you guess how many functions magnesium is needed for in the body?
What number did you come up with?
Magnesium is needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body. That's a lot right!!
Magnesium is important:
- to aid in our body's energy production,
- helps bones remain strong,
- help maintain normal nerve and muscle function,
- keeps the heartbeat steady,
- supports a healthy immune system,
- and it also helps adjust blood glucose levels.
So why am I talking about this today?
Well, an important part of rehabilitation is also understanding the role that nutrition plays in supporting our bodies. Today I want to leave you with a question.
Are you supporting your body with the right foods and nutrients to ensure that it can work optimally?
I believe that if fatigue and fatigue management is an issue for you, then looking at your magnesium intake and the foods you currently have daily to help you get enough magnesium is important.
