all you need is MgCl2

In modern times like these, what does the 99% of people lack? Shut up, you naughty readers… the right answer is Magnesium Chloride 😉

mgcl2Magnesium chloride, Wikipedia‘s words, “is the name for the chemical compounds with the formulas MgCl2 and its various hydrates MgCl2(H2O)x“. Highly water-soluble, it is usually extracted from brine, sea water and (via solution mining) out of ancient seabeds. Because of many factors (intensive farming techniques, food processing and refining, massive use of preservatives), the food we usually eat is deficient in magnesium, whose daily requirement is about 420/320 mg for the average adult man/woman. This website (in french) says that a diet without MgCl2 “is incompatible with life“… besides the slightly apocalyptic atmosphere that we might suddenly feel, magnesium is actually depicted as a truly essential mineral for human nutrition. “Magnesium is needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body“, says this other website… my dumb reaction to all these facts: ok, I didn’t know about that, but if it’s so important, why am I still alive? 😀

magnesium-chlorideNo, we’re not supposed to schedule an appointment with The Lord (each of us with their own one, of course..!), but it’s good to know that our body likes to point out deficiency in magnesium by means of the following main alarm symptoms: chronic fatigue and lack of energy, insomnia, confused and uncontrolled emotional reactions, rapid pulse and muscle spasms, nervousness and irritability, and so on. For sure it’s not a big deal, it’s something that, more or less, we experience from now to then… what has been scientifically proven is that reestablishing the correct magnesium body requirement has very positive healing effects on anxiety, muscular pains, asthenia (when, in the morning, you wake up and you already feel dead tired), blood and body infections, nervous and emotional well-being, digestion and a lot more things that colour our daily life 🙂

sachetIf you’re curious (I was), just go to the closest chemist’s/pharmacy/grocery store and ask for magnesium chloride. They’ll sell you a cheap 20 g sachet to be dissolved in 1 litre of water. It tastes pretty bad actually, very bitter (if cooled down in the fridge, it will be less unpleasant), but it’s totally tolerable since you’ll have 20 days to empty this magic bottle (and not half a day, as I thought. Do not try that, DO NOT!)
