I just whipped together my nightly “White Water” that I have every night before bed and I just have to share the life changing benefits of adding this simple drink to your routine!!
While every ingredient has amazing effects I’m going to focus on one in particular because it’s an essential mineral/electrolyte for our bodies that’s responsible for over 300 metabolic functions, yet it’s projected that up to 90% of us are deficient!
Can you guess what it is? It’s MAGNESIUM! Not something that’s really talked a whole lot about, right? Well let’s start talking!!
Being low in magnesium has some really big consequences. Here are the warning signs that you may have seen on my Instagram:
Some other symptoms are low thyroid, adrenal fatigue, constipation, poor memory, migraines/ headaches, and inflammation. If you’re experiencing many of these symptoms, there’s a good chance you may be low in magnesium.
I got you, girl! I’m sharing with you some very easy ways to get more mag into your daily diet and handing you my secret (until now), nightly recipe that I’ve only shared with my clients and closest friends.
You’ll be surprised at how much better you feel!!
I was personally dealing with many of these symptoms recently and after several visits to doctors, a heart specialist, and a full panel blood test (magnesium deficiency can’t be found this way), I was left at a loss… but I turned back to nutrition and food as medicine as I always do and discovered on my own that I must have been deficient in this mineral. I started drinking my “White Water” recipe every night and increased my magnesium slowly until it was the right level for me and many of these issues have cleared up completely or gotten so much better!! (Number 1 below was probably my culprit)
WHY ARE WE DEFICIENT?
WHAT ARE SOME MAG-RICH FOODS YOU CAN ADD TO YOUR DIET?
In order from most to least amount of magnesium.
Yaasss… see the dark chocolate!? I thought you might like that one. I used to be a CHOCOHOLIC, needing some dark chocolate every night.
Your body will talk to you and crave foods that have nutrients you need. Since I’ve been taking my magnesium supplements, I honestly don’t crave it or even want it anymore. So cool!!
HOW CAN I SUPPLEMENT?
I completely understand that supplements can be confusing so I want to make it as simple as possible for you. Each form has it’s own benefits so I hope this break down helps you choose which form would be best for you.
Okay, now for the reveal of my magical drink that will help you sleep restfully and also support anti-aging, immunity and gut health.
WHITE WATER FOR RAPID BEAUTY SLEEP
This drink that has been life changing for me is a part of my nightly ritual now; along with diffusing essential oils and gratitude journaling that I do while I’m drinking it. It’s something I don’t even think about anymore, I just do it and it’s benefits have been amazing (including my nails being stronger than ever before because of the collagen… but that’s for another blog!)
Soooo, what do you think? Are you going to try it?
I’d absolutely love to hear if you think this was helpful for you. Write a comment below! Do you use magnesium? Are you going to start trying one of these tips above? I’d love to know.
Sending you so much love.
