Magnesium is involved in over 400 enzymatic reactions in the body including energy metabolism and protein synthesis. This important nutrient impacts blood pressure, metabolism, immune function and many other aspects of health. Yet less than 30% of U.S. adults consume the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) of magnesium, and nearly 20% get only half of the magnesium they need daily to remain healthy.

Everything from depleted soil conditions, to the use of chemicals in our water supply, and high levels of stress has contributed to this and has been shown to lead to symptoms like muscle cramps, sleep issues, and low energy levels.

So how do you know if you’re deficient in this important nutrient? In this video, Dr. Robin Berzin breaks down exactly why magnesium deficiency is so widespread, the top 3 signs your body is low in magnesium, and what you can do about it.
