Magnesium Deficiency and Constipation
Many people don’t really pay attention to what they are
taking in and whether or not their body is getting the nutrients
it needs until they notice something is wrong and then work
to sort out what they may be missing. In some cases you may
be surprised to find that the symptom that something is missing
from your diet is constipation.
When it comes to Magnesium, most people are not
getting enough of it. Magnesium comes from oat bran, wheat and
other whole grains, soy, seeds and nuts and those green leafy
vegetables that no one seems to eat enough of.
While you may not have thought a lot about magnesium,
it is vital to your system, being responsible for literally
hundreds of chemical processes in the body from helping to control
your blood sugar to keeping your bones strong and keeping your
bowels working properly.
That means if you are deficient in magnesium you
may see side effects such as constipation.
While you may think you eat a generally healthy
diet, the truth is that it’s not always easy to make sure
your body has enough magnesium and that bout of constipation
you are getting may be a symptom letting you know that you are
Studies show that about 80 percent of diets have
less than 55 percent of the daily-recommended magnesium content,
meaning the majority of us are deficient. Making matters worse
is the fact that there are a number of things that can deplete
your magnesium intake even more. Things such as alcohol, using
calcium supplements, the regular use of diuretics and some GI
diseases can make it harder for your body to absorb the magnesium
In many ways, it's a catch 22. Your body not getting
enough magnesium can lead to constipation and then you try to
use diuretics to relieve the constipation, which is really making
things worse as it is depleting even more of your magnesium
So, what is the solution? The best answer may
be to get a full system colon cleanse. A full system colon cleansing
is where you take a colon cleanse orally, usually through capsules.
The ingredients then work through your entire digestive tract
helping to alleviate the constipation you are feeling and cleaning
out your digestive tract. This will give your body a clean slate
to pull in the nutrients from the food you eat without you needing
to take any more of those diuretics.
When considering which type of colon cleanse to use to alleviate your constipation, you may want to consider using a cleanse that also has a beneficial side product. An oxygen based colon cleanse not only helps to clean anything out of your digestive tract that has become clogged, but also releases oxygen directly into your system. Oxygen is a very powerful healer and can give your body a great boost of energy and healing while also cleaning out the waste that is bogging your system down.
