Getting older can be frightening.

I don’t just mean how weird and awful the world seems to get with every passing year. 

I’m talking about fears for your health… of losing what makes life worth living – your energy, personality, passions and hobbies – all the things that make you ‘YOU’.

For instance, you might be worried about arthritis, heart disease, cancer and dementia. Those are what I’d call “the big four” threats.

But this fact might surprise you…

An ailment more debilitating than arthritis, heart disease, cancer and dementia

Statistically speaking, the leading cause of health problems and disability in older age aren’t any of those big four.
It’s bone fractures.

One in three women over 50 will experience an osteoporotic fracture of some kind… while one in five men aged over 50 will get this problem.

By 2050, hip fracture rates are likely to have increased by 310% in men and 240% in women. Worse, the mortality rate for men is 20% in the year after a hip fracture. (stats: the IOF – Osteoporosis Foundation)

Whatever your gender, your bones start to lose density in your 20s and decline in mass as you age. This puts you at risk of fracture, injury and life-long pain, a problem which affects EVERYONE.

Now, we all know that calcium and vitamin D are good for bones.

But it’s long been suspected that magnesium is just as crucial for bone health… yet you probably don’t have enough of this mineral in your system.

How magnesium keeps your bones strong

An April 2017 study from the University of Bristol showed its direct effect on fracture risk.

Men with low levels of magnesium had an increased risk of fractures (especially the hip). This risk was slashed by 44% in men with higher levels of magnesium.

Meanwhile, there has been research into links between magnesium and our ability to absorb calcium, which helps maintain bone mass and prevents conditions like osteoporosis.

Studies show that the main hormone which helps calcium uptake from the blood (called parathyroid hormone) is dependent on magnesium to form.

So to keep our bones strong as we get older we need to maintain our levels of magnesium.

But this is the problem…

The great British magnesium crisis

According to a National Diet and Nutrition Survey, 11% of women and 16% men are deficient in magnesium. This means that roughly one in ten are more at risk than they should be of weak bones, fractures and early osteoporosis.

On top of that, deficiency has also been linked to problems including nausea, exhaustion, insomnia, restless legs, cramps, acid indigestion, cramps, low mood, dizziness, poor memory and anxiety.

In olden days, your intake of magnesium would have been easy to get from wholegrains, green leafy vegetables, nuts and meat.  But intensive farming has seen the magnesium content in vegetables plummet by as much as 80% since 1950.

Modern diets are not just lacking in magnesium – our lifestyles are flushing it out…

  • We eat too many out-of-season vegetables flown across the world. These are lower in nutrients by the time we eat them.

  • Caffeine, alcohol, processed grains and sugar prompt the kidneys to expel magnesium, depleting levels still further.

  • Chlorine in our drinking water also depletes magnesium.

  • The stress of modern life causes the body to produce adrenaline and cortisol, both of which impact on magnesium levels too.

So as you can see, it’s highly likely that you need a top-up.
But please avoid grabbing the nearest supplement off the supermarket shelf.

Many supplement companies have isolated the magnesium mineral synthetically in a laboratory, and as I explained in a Good Life Letter a few weeks ago, our bodies are more easily able to recognise vitamins and minerals when they’re taken from natural sources rather than synthetic.

However, our optimum Magnesium solution comes as a complete magnesium therapy kit, including sprays, flakes, capsules and table salt for the full natural treatment, allowing your skin and stomach to process the mineral in multiple ways.

The capsules themselves contain five forms of natural magnesium, which means that it is highly absorbed and effective, yet gentle on your stomach.

And you can use flakes in the bath, and even enriched salt on your food to top up your levels further.

Here’s some feedback from people who’ve tried it:

  • "This stuff is special. You can forget the rest as they cannot compare with quality. I just love how quickly they make you feel good. I have tried loads of Magnesium by other brands, and I mean loads!! Hand on heart, I can honestly say that not one of them can come anywhere near this stuff."  Mrs D Surrey

  • "I suffer from cramp. A lot. I have tried every remedy under the sun without success, but have felt a lot better after taking these for a month. I used to get cramp every night, but not anymore." Suzy

  • "A good natural product. Do they work? Yes, for me they did." Alison Killick

  • "I have noticed a big improvement in my health and recommend them to my friends." Simon
But try it yourself and see how it improves your health. As you’ll see from this report here, you should experience the following over your 60-day trial:

  • Stronger bones and teeth
  • More energy
  • Better night’s sleep
  • Happier mood
  • Improved vision
  • Stronger, more regular heartbeat
  • Sharper memory

While you trial the supplement, keep a diary of how you feel – everything from pain levels and energy to your quality of sleep – and track your progress. Make 100% sure it works for you and that you’re getting real, tangible benefits.
All the details are here: try Magnesium for 60 days!

Yours, as ever
