Minerals And Insomnia
In a previous article, I talked about insomnia and vitamins. In this article I am going to talk about minerals and insomnia, and what minerals you may be lacking if you suffering insomnia or restlessness.
Insomnia being just one cause of erectile dysfunction, principally because of the poor quality sleep relationship to low testosterone levels.
So “get the T levels high and get some shut eye”.
Meanwhile, the spin-off bonus will be greater sex drive and stronger erections due to amped up testosterone levels.
Minerals That Can Cause Insomnia
An insufficient amount of magnesium can cause insomnia, potassium deficiency can lead to high blood pressure and poor quality sleep as low levels of potassium can cause difficulties in remaining asleep during the night.
Iron levels tend to be low in poor quality sleepers and insomniacs.
Magnesium can be described as somewhat of a miracle mineral as it can be used to treat a number of illnesses. You are twice as likely to die from a magnesium deficiency than any other mineral.
So make darn sure you get your daily dose of magnesium which is 400 mg daily.
Magnesium is recognised and famed for being the most powerful mineral for relaxation and thus, can help with stress and insomnia, which are two known causes or erectile dysfunction.
In order for our bodies to absorb magnesium properly and do what it is supposed to do, we have to get sufficient amounts of selenium, vitamin D and vitamin B6 into our diets.
Foods high in Magnesium: Generally speaking dark leafy greens such as spinach, Kale, Brazil nuts, Pine nuts, almonds, swiss chard, Mackrel, wild salmon, tuna, Soybeans, black beans, lentils chickpeas, avocado, Bananas. dark chocolate and low-fat yoghurt.
Magnesium also helps to boost our cardiac health, and with a lovely list of foods that contain magnesium
A study in 1991 showed a direct relationship between the inability to remain asleep during the night and low levels of potassium.
Potassium is an electrolyte that helps to control and regulate our blood pressure and levels of sodium in the blood. Helps our nerves work and our muscles to move and to remain asleep during the night
Foods High in Potassium: Bananas, Avocados, Mushrooms, yoghurt, fish, potatoes, beans and dark leafy greens.
The recommended daily amount of potassium for adults is 3,500 mg.
You may have noticed many of the food sources for magnesium and potassium are similar.
Just about everybody on this planet knows that iron deficiency causes you to become anaemic. Now doctors have found a new type of iron deficiency that can lead to depression and sleep disorders such as insomnia.
Iron helps the body in essential functions such as cell growth.
An easy and simple way to check if you have an iron deficiency is to check the inside of your lower eyelid by just pulling down gently and checking its colour.
If it is whiteish on the inside of the lower eyelid you may be iron deficient.
Iron is best absorbed with vitamin C.
Food sources of Vitamin C: Papaya, Orange, Kiwi fruit, Tomatoes, Broccoli, peppers.
Food Sources of Iron: Beef, Nuts, Lamb, beans, spinach, dark chocolate, liver.
