Let's talk about magnesium

Do you have muscle pain and cramps? This could be for you

8w ago

Foodtribe for years I have fought bad muscle pain and extreme muscle cramps all over my body. At times my chest would cramp so hard I could not breathe until the cramp would break loose. On a good day it still hurt to breathe because my chest did not want to expand the way it is supposed to.

When I went to the doctor to get checked they put me on anti-inflammatory meds and muscle relaxers. Anyone who knows me knows I don't like taking pills. These pills did work for a short time, but then did not work as well. When I went back to the doctor they told me this will only get worse and the medication will have to get stronger and stronger. That's not good.

I just assumed this was my life now so I lived with the pain and I have for years now. For the last six months it's been getting worse. For the last couple weeks it has been really really bad and nothing was working.

Yesterday I was told to try and take about 850mg of magnesium because it is a muscle lubricant. With how bad it was getting, I was willing to try anything.

Combined with my daily vitamin this gave me 600mg of magnesium. I took it after eating last night and prayed for the best.

I am so happy to report that a single 600mg dose of magnesium has done more for me than doctors and meds have done in years. Last night was the first night I was able to sleep all night without getting up several times to fight muscle cramps in a very long time. And it is the first time I have been able to stretch without cramping and hurting. I honestly do not remember the last time I was able to do a full body stretch. As soon as my feet hit the floor this morning I felt twenty years younger. Today I have been able to move in ways I have not been able to in years. The crushing feeling on my chest was gone, so now I can breathe better and without pain. I literally feel like a new person. I could not believe it worked that fast.

If you suffer from muscle pain, muscle stiffness and cramps try this. I pray it will help you the way it helped me. I wish I would have known this years ago.

Did you all know about the benefits of magnesium? Let me know in the comments. I hope your day is going well. Enjoy your weekend Foodtribe. Remember I love you all!

  • Welcome to the club, glad to hear you feel better with it! don’t drink coffee when taking it, the caffeine blocks the magnesium from reaching the blood

  • So glad you found something that helped. My hubby has used this to help his migraines. He suffered with them for years do to his eye disease he has. A neighbor told him about taking this and he hasn’t had any migraines since. I take them also for ankle cramps. I have severe arthritis in both ankles and they would cramp all the time and this has helped me too.

    • I did not know about being good for the heart but the heart is a muscle. Thanks for asking my friend they are doing better. Still don't know any more about dads lung cancer.
