Pumpkin Spice season is just around the corner. For those of us that love the smell and swoon over the taste of anything pumpkin, we rejoice as school starts and days get a little cooler as the promise of this amazing time of year comes to fruition. Lattes, muffins, pies, and anything else full of pumkiny goodness and I am happy, happy, happy!
There is yet another reason for pumpkin lovers to rejoice, while being incredibly tasty in SO many ways, it is also incredibly good for you! Of course, adding a ton of sugar to your pumpkin is not in your best interest, but there are ways to get your pumpkin fix without overdoing it on the sugar. (See links below for some great recipe ideas).
While your favorite pumpkin recipe holds many important nutrients including magnesium, pumpkin seeds are even higher in this critical mineral. They are rich in omega 3 fatty acids, iron, and antioxidants, and magnesium. Their magnesium content rivals that of leafy veggies and bananas. Besides being delicious, these mighty seeds can help reduce cholesterol and are said to help prevent breast cancer.
Here at Mg12, we are passionate about educating people on the importance of having enough magnesium in our bodies. Magnesium deficiency can cause issues ranging from leg cramps to heart arrhythmia to hormonal imbalances. It is vital in over 300 enzymatic functions in the body and imperative for us to get adequate amounts to maintain optimal health. It is very difficult to get enough magnesium in our daily diets. It is estimated that over 80% of Americans are deficient in this vital nutrient. Supplementation helps to ensure your body is getting what it needs to function at its best.
It is believed that only about 20% of magnesium taken through oral supplements is absorbed by the body. While up to 80% absorption is possible through transdermal/topical application. Mg12 products have the highest dose per application of transdermal magnesium products on the market. With up to 20 times more magnesium in each application than our competitors. Which of course means, you get more bang for your buck - more concentrated and pure magnesium than any other product available.
So, sit back, rub on some Mg12 and enjoy the coming of Fall with a handful of pumpkin seeds and a latte (just choose to make your own with real pumpkin and less sugar). To your health and a wonderful Fall season!
