Mother’s Day is here! Hopefully you are busy either pampering your mothers or being pampered, so we’ll make this quick.
When we take a day to care for our mothers, let’s remember that moms may need magnesium more than anyone else. Here are the top 10 reasons why moms may need a magnesium boost.
Moms carry much of a family’s weight, emotionally and practically. It takes a toll! Magnesium is the anti-stress mineral – it can help Mom unwind mentally, emotionally and physically.
Moms lie awake worrying. From the first semester to infinity, our children are a source of lost sleep. Magnesium (and in some cases, magnesium with melatonin) can help Mom fall asleep fast, and get a more restorative rest.
PMS and Menopause
Magnesium plays a role in balancing hormones, so mothers can feel more balanced at every stage of life.
Women are more prone to osteoporosis, especially after menopause, when estrogen drops. Build strong bones with magnesium.
Moms often need superpower energy to get it all done. Magnesium works at the cellular level to enable energy production.
Despite all the joys of motherhood, depression is nearly twice as likely among women. Magnesium activates seritonin, our “happy hormone”, as well as vitamins essential to mood, including vitamin D. Research shows a link between low magnesium and depression and suggests that getting more magnesium may be a useful treatment.
Moms are often the last to sit down to eat and the first to get up. They get their nutrition on the go, which means mothers can easily become nutrient deficient.
Pregnancy and Lactation
Magnesium is one of the most important nutrients for a healthy, full-term pregnancy. Post-partum moms can use magnesium to help ease into restful sleep at every opportunity (no matter how short) and help to prevent post-partum depression.
Moms are ‘babywearing’, carrying toddlers on their hips, toting the family’s supplies on one shoulder. We need to be strong and we need to get loose. Magnesium helps build stronger muscles while also enabling those muscles to relax! The full spectrum of amino acids in moringa helps grow muscle tissue too.
Far be it from us to suggest motherhood causes headaches, but more women than men do suffer. Magnesium is often very effective in the treatment of migraines and other headaches!
