Why you are flushing your hard earned money down the toilet

- Discover the false economy of a cheap Amazon deal
- Pure and natural – that is the way to get this essential mineral
Sitting here I am watching the first bees making their visits to the cherry blossom, across the lawn there is a flush of colour in the flower beds as daffodils lift their golden faces to the sun and my vegetable patch is greening over with the promise of summer bounty to follow.
A few weeks back none of this seemed possible, yet all of a sudden a riot of colour and activity happens in a short space of time.
Noticeably though these events are not just a singularity.
What you see is the true connected and interconnected way life works.
Flowers and plants are growing, insect populations increase to take advantage, song birds begin to feed on the insects in preparation for their egg laying and the trees and bushes come into leaf to provide the necessary cover for the nests to be built.
All things dependent, all things symbiotic... natural efficiency if you will.
When humans get involved we tend to mess this up, trying to create order out of natural variation, laying grass lawns then not allowing it to grow and flower or treating the odd dandelion as if it were public enemy number one.
We do have to understand nature does it best.
This was my most significant learning point from a visit to the Natural & Organic Products Show in London this week – and something that I really want to share with you.
Over the years that I have attended this show I have seen a huge increase in suppliers offering their version of the various vitamin and mineral products and for a long time I failed to grasp what the difference could be between one vitamin C capsule and another – other than the price.
I sort of consoled myself that maybe the differences were in the strength or source, or maybe the way it was packaged.
However in the case of minerals I really was at a loss. Take magnesium for instance, how on earth could there be a difference in a base metal, a constituent of seawater?
Well, it turns out there is a huge difference and this explains why so many people are failing to get any benefit from their daily supplement.
Choose your magnesium supplement wisely and get the real benefits few others provide
Don’t ignore the small print
Now to you and I walking around a health superstore we see a rack of products all called magnesium supplements and we think that they are all similar – I mean what is the difference between Magnesium Citrate, Chelated Magnesium or Magnesium plus Boron?
Chances are we’ll opt for the cheapest and consider ourselves on the road to a healthy future, but are we really doing ourselves any favours? The answer is probably not and the money we have just spent might as well have been washed down the toilet – because that is where the magnesium in the capsules is going to end up.
If you have a pack of magnesium at home now have a look at the back (you might need a magnifying glass!) and see how many forms of magnesium are present. In most cases there will be one or two only.
This is where the issue comes; you see when one of the manufacturers starts messing around and isolating magnesium in a laboratory they can only recover the forms which are either easily synthesised or those which survive their processing.
Neither of these are going to make it into the complex absorption processes our bodies use, and thus much of what we swallow passes straight through us. Typically this is why manufactured vitamin and mineral supplements have such high concentrations of the desired compounds.
By loading more into each capsule it doesn’t mean that our bodies have more available to them, it just means that when huge amounts get wasted there is a chance that at least some of it might get used.
Truly false economy and more importantly you are not getting even a fraction of the benefits you should.
Discover how you can get five natural forms of magnesium in one daily supplement
Don’t miss out
As time passes we are discovering just how important magnesium is to our health and well being, and now many professionals are advising that all of us need an additional daily dose.
Back in the time of our grandparents, magnesium was present in locally grown vegetables and the soil they were grown in. Now though our vegetables are washed and scrubbed to within an inch of their lives and just don’t contain enough of this important mineral.
As a result symptoms of magnesium deficiency are on the increase, such as:
- Muscle spasms and cramping, particularly at night
- Difficulty sleeping, or poor quality sleep
- Hair loss, brittle nails and flaky, itchy skin
- Irritability and anxiety leading to depression
- Poor calcium uptake which can lead to Osteopenia
- Irregular heartbeats and worsening symptoms of high blood pressure
- Poor blood glucose control
- Migraines and cluster headaches
The problem is that many of us just don’t realise what is causing these issues and trot along to our GP who dishes out the appropriate medication but rarely does the blood tests which would show a deficiency.
So it is clear that all of us could benefit from a simple daily supplement of magnesium, but choosing the right one can make all of the difference.
Sure you can pick a supplement up from Amazon for a few pounds, but as I explained before you might as well not bother.
The choice to make is the one which:
- Contains 5 natural forms of magnesium which is a complete natural bioactive complex for better assimilation
- Has been naturally evaporated and purified from deep, clean waters
- One which is highly effective yet gentle on the stomach
- That is free from additives and processing chemicals, and most importantly proven to be free from pesticides and herbicides
- Has been made in the UK by people who understand the importance of natural health
If you make the right choice then you are utilising a truly natural product, and therefore providing your body with all the constituents it needs, in a form it recognises and will readily absorb and most importantly in these straightened and austere times...
...true value for money and not money down the drain.
