Many people suffer from magnesium deficiency unknowingly which our body tries to tell us in various ways. Here are some key signs that may indicate magnesium deficiency in our body:

Muscle spasm 

Magnesium is vital for muscle function, as it helps regulate the contraction and relaxation of our muscles. One of the early signs of magnesium deficiency can be cramps, tremors and twitches. When left untreated the deficiency can lead to convolution and seizures. 

Scientists believe these symptoms are caused by a greater flow of calcium in the nerve cells, which overexcited or hyper stimulates the muscle nerves.

However, keep in mind that sometimes muscle twitches, cramps, tremors can happen because of excess intake of caffeine, stress or medication side effects.

Irregular heart beat

Heart arrhythmia or irregular heart beats are a symptom of severe magnesium deficiency.

These abnormalities can manifest as palpitations or a fluttering sensation in the chest. 

Arrhythmia can show up with different signs, from no noticeable symptoms to more serious ones

 Some people might feel heart palpitations, which are like pauses between heartbeats. In the worst cases, arrhythmia could increase the chances of having a stroke or heart failure.

Fatigue and weakness

Feeling tired and weak is common when your body lacks essential minerals. Not having enough magnesium can lower the potassium in your muscle cells, causing weakness and fatigue. If you don't have a good amount of magnesium or potassium in your body, your electrolytes can go out of balance, leading to dehydration, tiredness, and weakness.

Feeling constipated all the time

Magnesium deficiency also affects your bowel movement. This mineral helps your muscles  in your digestive system to relax. When you're low on magnesium, your intestines may not work as smoothly, making it harder for waste to move through and causing constipation. So, having the right amount of magnesium is essential for keeping things running smoothly in your digestive system and preventing constipation.

Sleep Problems or Insomnia

If you have been experiencing poor sleep or insomnia, the reason may be that you have low magnesium levels in your body. Magnesium works like a calming agent in your brain by attaching to receptors that slow down nerve activity. When you're low on magnesium, it can be hard to relax and calm your mind.

Magnesium is used by your nervous system, and the nervous system controls your sleep. If your body doesn't get the amount of magnesium it needs, you may not be getting a full night’s sleep. Low magnesium levels have been associated with restless leg syndrome.

Magnesium Chloride

Magnesium is an essential mineral that plays a crucial role in numerous physiological processes in the body. Magnesium chloride is used as a supplement to address magnesium deficiencies, supporting overall health. Adequate magnesium levels are essential for muscle function, nerve function, energy production, and bone health. Magnesium chloride, when used topically in the form of oil or spray, is absorbed  through the skin, promoting muscle relaxation. This can be particularly beneficial for individuals experiencing muscle cramps or tension, its also phenomenal for treating pre-menstrual cramping and discomfort.
