Magnesium The Super Mineral- Since only 1% of magnesium is stored in the blood, blood test do not usually pick up on a deficiency. If you are having the symptoms of magnesium deficiency add magnesium rich foods to your diet and request a 'spectra cell test for low magnesium'.
Magnesium Benefits - I was having horrible issues after my surgery and cancer recovery, at first we thought they were related to thyroid function but all my tests were getting better, though my symptoms were not. After many blood test for all kinds of things, it turns out I have a magnesium deficiency. It took quite a few weeks to get my levels back up but once they were, most of my problems were relieved; most of all my muscle aches, exhaustion and restless sleep. On the up and up. :) ~Leah
