Better Nutrition Magnesium Evaluation


Why the Better Nutrition Magnesium Evaluation?

If your client tells you that he/she is feeling stressed, constipated, has headaches, menstrual cramps or lacks better energy, the Better Nutrition Magnesium Evaluation is the evaluation to pull out of your toolbox! It will provide you with specific insight into your client’s magnesium intake and serves as an accompaniment to lab values and biometrics. This evaluation is the first and only tool to help you review your client’s current total nutrition to discover what could be better to provide your client’s body with the magnesium it needs.

Why magnesium?

The body experiences stress all day long at the cellular level, and it responds to stress by sending calcium into the cells. To turn off stress, to stop the party, and to restore calm, the body needs magnesium to kick the calcium back outside of the cell. Thus, without enough magnesium, cells stay in a stressed state, where things like digestion and sleep don’t happen effectively.

~70% of adults do NOT get enough magnesium, leaving cells in a state of stress!

What should you do with your Better Nutrition Magnesium Evaluation?

Invite your client to take the assessment and share the results with you so that you can make better, personalized, total nutrition recommendations. If you are a healthcare provider, get permission to share the results with the other members of your client’s healthcare team.

How can the Better Nutrition Magnesium Evaluation help you help your client?

Use the Better Nutrition Magnesium Evaluation to find out and to make better nutrition magnesium recommendations! The body uses magnesium in cells to turn off the stress response, and in doing so, helps muscles relax. That means that getting enough magnesium is key for better sleep, digestion, weight loss, heart health, bone health, energy, and to help prevent headaches and cramps.

Does your client realize how important magnesium is to the body?

What your client eats, sips and pops either gives the body enough magnesium or it doesn’t, and this evaluation helps you to determine just that. They’ll feel so much better with regulated magnesium levels based on your total, personalized and better nutrition recommendation!

What choices deliver magnesium better?
