Magnesium Rich Strawberry Smoothie
Daily tiredness is something that millions of people around the world suffer from. In fact, so many people deal with this symptom that many of us just assume that it is part of "growing up." But that doesn't have to be the case.
Chronic fatigue can seem like an irritation to your day. It can keep you from accomplishing everything on your to-do list, or it can make you feel like the world's worst parent or spouse or friend when you are too tired to make time for your loved one.
It can also have farther reaching effects if it develops into a disease called Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, as discussed by Peggy Rosati Allan called "Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: Implications for Women and Their Health Care Providers During the Childbearing Years."
Although the article targets women, much of its content is important to men and children as well, especially with the facts reported: "Epidemiologic estimates indicate that up to 4 million people in the United States meet the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) criteria for the diagnosis of CFS, and that 85% of US citizens with CFS remain undiagnosed."
A lot of chronic fatigue is simply a matter of a magnesium imbalance in your diet. Magnesium is a mineral that controls the production of energy in our body and allows our muscles to contract and release (think: Charley horse and muscle spasms) according to the National Institute of Health.

What is Magnesium Good For?
Magnesium is a must-have for good cardiovascular health, but it goes well beyond that.
It is also the main mineral that helps your energy metabolism, which in turn gives you energy and allows you to lose weight or sustain your weight at a healthy level. Magnesium is an excellent addition to a ketogenic diet. It helps your body absorb calcium and potassium and use them properly, avoiding those painful muscle cramps that you get occasionally that make you jump out of your seat and hop up and down in the hopes that you get rid of them.
Additionally, if you have the right magnesium levels, your blood pressure is likely in normal range, your heart rhythms are regular, and your heart, muscles and nervous systems can function properly.
Many studies, like this one from NCBI on the effects of Magnesium L-threonate on memory deficits, show that magnesium has a positive effect on helping memory function in aging adults.
But if tiredness remains an issue in your daily life, you can add some extra magnesium into your diet with easy recipes like this strawberry smoothie!
