Got Gout? Magnesium, the lost mineral..

Got Gout?

Hello everyone and thank you for visiting.  I have know several men that have become debilitated at the mercy of having GoutGout is the result of having high levels of uric acid levels.  The kidneys take a real hit, because they excrete most of the uric acid that is produced daily.  Stress also plays a role in this disease, which adds inflammation in the joints and kidneys.  I have heard that it is so very painful.

     Gout is known as the rich mans diet, or the Kings Disease, it is also and a form of arthritis and it usually hits you at your Big Toe.  It can also produce Kidney Stones.

The main causes are being overweight, consuming to much alcohol, sugar, and fatty meats.

Here are some guidelines to help:

1-Eliminate saturated fats, fatty meats, especially certain cuts of pork and steak.

2-Reduce sugar.  For a guy, no more than 35g per day, us gals, 25g per day.  That is not much sugar!  And this includes what everyone calls “natural sugars”, all sugars are the same.  Check labels on everything.

Magnesium the Lost Mineral..

The topic of Magnesium started to interest me when I read an article about its effects on treating heart rhythm.  I have been diagnosed with a prolapse of the mitral valve,  and had a heart attack at age 38.  Since that time, I have been approached by clients that ask me questions about numerous issues such as sleep disorders,, nerve and muscle problems.  I discovered that it not only helps all of the above, but it also helps with headaches, and supports our bones.  The metabolic benefits of Magnesium is so broad, that it actually touches every body system.  Survey says,  that we, as a whole,  are majorly deficient in Magnesium.

Here are some signs that you may be deficient:

1-Twitches and tremors.

2-Muscle cramps.

3- Trouble sleeping.

4-Imbalance of blood sugars.

5-Elevated blood pressure.

6-Depression

7-Lack of appetite

The recommended daily intake is 300-400 mg.,  check with you doctor before taking any supplement, especially if you are taking other prescribed drugs.

Foods that naturally contain Magnesium:  Broccoli

Magnesium is a mineral miracle.  There are different types of magnesium. Magnesium Oxide, which is vital for heartburn or indigestion, muscles and bones.

Magnesium Citrate,  is a laxative and can aid in constipation.  It attracts water into the bowls and the intestine.

As I said before Magnesium is a miracle mineral, and many of us are deficient.
