Today we’re going to learn about Moon Boost but first we need to learn about the menstruation mineral – magnesium.
Magnesium is an incredibly powerful mineral foundational to your entire hormonal system and functioning. It is one of our most vital nutrients, involved in over 300 chemical processes within the body. It can be used in the treatment for almost any period problem or hormonal condition including PCOS, PMS, thyroid conditions, anxiety, adrenal fatigue, menstrual cramps and perimenopause.
Unfortunately magnesium deficiency is very common today. Regardless of our intake of magnesium rich foods it can still be difficult to obtain adequate levels required for optimal hormonal health. Reasons contributing to deficiency can include:
- Lack of availability of foods high in magnesium. Nutrients in foods are being impaired by soil depletion caused by agricultural farming practices.
- Stress. Every day level of stress experienced by the average person causes our body to dump magnesium.
- The birth control pill depletes magnesium stores in the body.
- Sugar. Every time you eat sugar it uses magnesium to be processed.
- Consumption of caffeine causes the body to excrete magnesium.
Pretty much every person is going to benefit from additional magnesium in their life. The best way to discover if it’s for you is to try it and see how you feel. Pay extra attention to signs of deficiency such as cramps, restless leg syndrome, headaches and migraines, fatigue, depression, anxiety, mood swings, chocolate cravings, poor sleep and other symptoms of PMS.
The benefits of magnesium for hormones
- Helps regulate cortisol, calming your nervous system, reducing stress and anxiety.
- Helps produce hormones estrogen, progesterone, testosterone. This is why it can be supportive when you come off the pill to help the body make hormones again.
- Regulates blood sugar balance, controlling insulin production. Prevents spikes which can help with PMS, PCOS and sugar cravings.
- Increases serotonin which is your happy hormone. It’s also the precursor to melatonin (your sleep hormone) which is why magnesium also promotes deeper sleep!
- Supports healthy thyroid function.
- Activates Vitamin D, a precursor for hormone progesterone.
- Prevents period pain by reducing inflammatory prostaglandins and relaxing uterine muscles.
- Promotes healthy estrogen clearance, which may help reduce symptoms of PMS, endo and fibroids.
