Our endocrine system is a beautifully complex network of hormone producing glands that regulate bodily functions and help keep us healthy. These hormones not only affect specific organs in our body, but they also affect one another. Because they are integrally interconnected, a slight imbalance can throw off our bodily functions and adversely impact our health. This can lead to a host of health problems such as: sleep issues, fatigue, poor memory or concentration, mood problems, weight gain/loss, temperature sensitivity, bloating, aches and pains, irregular menstrual cycles, increase in blood pressure, irregular heart rates, or even depression.
For people who recognise the signs of a hormonal imbalance they are often told to increase their intake of certain nutrients. The most common ones you would hear are B Vitamins, Omega-3 Fatty Acids, and Vitamin D. However, one of the most essential (but not often mentioned) nutrients to help balance hormones is Magnesium.

Magnesium is also a critical component in hormone creation. Hormones like progesterone, estrogen and testosterone are created with the help of magnesium.
The recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) for magnesium is around 320 milligrams per day. However, stress and conditions like thyroid autoimmune disease can rob people of magnesium. They would need to take more than the RDA in order to bring their health up to optimum levels.
To replenish our magnesium levels, here are some examples of magnesium rich foods that we can incorporate into a healthy diet:
You can also increase your magnesium intake by taking supplements like Magnesium glycinate, Magnesium citrate, Magnesium oxide, or even Topical magnesium. Ask your doctor for more information on these magnesium supplements.
