Importance of Magnesium on Keto

all minerals are vitally important but when you’re on keto you could argue that magnesium is one of the most important so let’s talk about why magnesium is so critical on a ketogenic food and what it can do for you I’m Thomas de Lauer with keto mojo and we’re talking minerals today okay the first thing I want to address is a tipi adenosine triphosphate ATP is the vigor currency inside your mas so whenever you are creating energy you’re utilize ATP now when you’re on keto what happens is your body goes through gluconeogenesis now gluconeogenesis is where your body takes protein and converts it into glucose now this sounds like a wild thing but it’s totally normal and thoroughly expected the thing we have to consider is that gluconeogenesis makes force it makes additional ATP which means we need to produce more ATP well where magnesium comes in is ATP although precisely announced ATP realistically should be called mag ATP why because ATP relates to magnesium proved effective at to actually activate so without magnesium ATP doesn’t work so when we need more ATP because we’re on keto we need more magnesium so if you’re feeling a little sleepy or you’re feeling like you’re just not yourself there’s a good chance it could just be a simple magnesium deficiency that is easily chastised with the freedom foods or supplementation and now let’s talk keto breath for a moment now keto gulp can be caused by a few different things sometimes keto sigh can be caused by the lack of metabolism of specific ketones that excrete through your breath but other ages it can be triggered by what are called volatile sulfur deepens okay volatile sulfur compounds are literally really a reaction of sulfur’s and specific menus that come up through your sigh well it turns out that magnesium has a reaction with these sulfur complexes that in essence counterbalance them make it so that your breather doesn’t smell as bad so if you’re battling keto breath or you’re just waddle bad sigh in general magnesium might be a ticket to be able to not dealing with this problem anymore then we discuss the bathroom the constipation macrocosm all right so if you’re doing keto or you’re brand-new to keto you’ve probably known a little of constipation now it happens generally because when you first go on keto it’s easy to get a little bit dehydrated and almost everyone knows that if dehydrated then things don’t move quite as smoothly if you know what I represent so magnesium cures attract liquid into the colon which makes it acts as somewhat of a stool softener it is therefore offsets it so everything moves nice and easy but additionally if you lose magnesium when you’re on keto because you’re losing water and magnesium is a water-soluble vitamin so it’s easy to lose it then you lose the muscle relaxation effect and may be hard to connect the dots sometimes but your intestinal plan consists of a series of muscles so if they’re not relaxing then they’re not able to relax and contract and move things along so magnesium can help with the claim kind of contraction and loosening for everything to move on through your structure so you can get regular again and then when you’re doing keto ooh the contractions if you’ve ever dealt with convulsions when you’re on keto like time in your muscles after a workout there’s a very good chance that it is magnesium referred a lot of people turn to potassium first but in reality it’s usually a magnesium matter you participate magnesium has to do with ion transportation ion transportation is where we’re mostly granting magnesium and other minerals to get into the right orbit of the cadre to send the signal to contract and loosen the privilege quality I’m very similar to how we discussed the digestive structure it’s just happening at the musculoskeletal system so if the brain is sending a signal for the bicep or the quadricep to contract and it’s not really directing because it doesn’t have magnesium it could just trigger it to cramp up fun fact muscle braids like when you get a tight knot in your back all that is is a piece of a muscle that is contracting and tightening actually quickly and not making go okay it’s not letting run so it’s just tightening and contracting until it is transformed into a bow it’s not like you physically have knotted up the tissue into a braid it’s just a portion that’s contracting magnesium can help with that hugely now this is a perfect segue into the next slouse which is sleep okay when we are in the same vein as talking about relaxation and unwinding muscles we can talk about sleep you interpret magnesium initiates the parasympathetic nervous system which signifies it gets you out of that fight-or-flight mode and when you do keto or just “were living” a high-stress soul in general you’re probably sitting in that fight-or-flight mode all the time so your muscles are tense and everything’s tightened up so it also impels it hard to sleep you may not realize it but you’re amped up on the inside even if you’re tired on the outside and you’re not getting the deep sleep that you need okay so magnesium is going to help you with that when you’re on keto but additionally it’s going to relate to exactly what we announced gaba receptors now gaba is what helps you feel tightened okay we have gaba we have glutamate in the ability if we want to be tilted towards the gaba cycle but we need magnesium to bind to gaba receptors in order for that method to be turned on so in short if we want our torso to kick into the relaxed mode that we want it to kick in – we need magnesium to really turn on that gaba cycle so there’s just a few immediate reasons as to why you need magnesium if you’re doing the ketogenic nutrition or if you’re intermittent fasting of course one of the best ways to make sure that you cover all your basis is to make sure that you’re always in that state of ketosis and that you’re not bouncing in and out all the time and the only way to do that you need to of course test your blood ketone levels and we ever turn to the keto mojo meter because it’s the gold standard when it comes down to ketone blood testing so as ever keep it locked in now with keto mojo and I’ll see you soon[ Music]
