Summer Heat and Magnesium
Humidity saps energy and depletes electrolytes and vital minerals that can make you feel tired, headachy, and out of sorts. She offers these three tips to combat humidity:
1. Drink 1/2 your body weight — in pounds — in ounces of water. If you weigh 150 pounds, drink 75 ounces.
2. Add 1/4-1/2 teaspoon of sea salt in every quart of drinking water.
3. Stir 1-2 tablespoons of magnesium citrate powder into your water and sip it throughout the day. Magnesium is a key electrolyte and is known as the anti-stress mineral. It affects over 700 enzyme processes in the body and is a co-factor for healthy bones, heart and brain health. It is also a bronchial dilator for asthma symptoms and is an energy mineral, being one of the key electrolytes in the ATP [adenosine triphosphate] energy-producing process in the body.
