    When my clients first come to me to transform their body, often times they are spending hundreds of dollars a month on useless supplements, protein shakes and potions that they are not even absorbing because of digestion issues.

    Due to million dollar marketing budgets and misleading information many of these useless supplements could be forcing the body fat to cling to you like a bacon sweater!

    Many times the Alpha Reset will provide you with needed vitamins and minerals without having to take supplements.

    There are 22 different minerals that are important in human nutrition. Minerals and vitamins function as components of body enzymes, often needed for proper composition of bone, blood, and maintenance of normal cell function.

    In plants, most minerals are complexed with organic molecules which means that you get better mineral absorption when you consume fruits and vegetables.

    One of the most powerful but often times overlooked mineral is magnesium. Magnesium is needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body. You’ll be surprised at the benefits magnesium provides.

    Below is a chart of the recommended dietary allowance for magnesium for adults and children according to National Institutes of Health, Office of Dietary Supplements.

    5 Benefits of Magnesium:

    1. Magnesium may reverse osteoporosis

    Multiple research studies conducted have suggested that calcium supplemented with magnesium improves bone mineral density. Magnesium deficiency alters calcium metabolism and the hormones that regulate calcium, resulting in osteoporosis. Intake of recommended levels of magnesium is important because it averts osteoporosis.

    2. Magnesium prevents cardiovascular diseases

    One of the most important benefits of magnesium is that it is associated with lowering the risk of coronary heart diseases. Dietary surveys have suggested that sufficient magnesium intake may reduce the chance of having a stroke. Magnesium deficiency increases the risk of abnormal heart rhythms, which increases the risk of complications after a heart attack. Therefore, consuming recommended amounts of magnesium dietary supplements may be beneficial to the cardiovascular system.

    3. Magnesium regulates high blood pressure (Hypertension)

    Magnesium plays a key role in regulating blood pressure naturally. Magnesium supplements and a diet including plenty of fruits and vegetables, which are good sources of potassium and magnesium, are consistently associated with lowering blood pressure.

    4. Magnesium treats diabetes

    Studies show that individuals with a magnesium deficiency have a risk of developing type-2 diabetes and severe diabetic retinopathy. Magnesium aids in carbohydrate metabolism and influences the release and activity of insulin, thereby controlling blood glucose levels. It has been proven that for every 100 milligrams of increase in magnesium daily intake, there was a 15 percent decrease in the risk of developing type-2 diabetes.

    5. Magnesium treats migraines, insomnia, and depression

    The numerous magnesium health benefits also include the treatment of migraines, insomnia, and symptoms of depression. Magnesium is also known to cure severe forms of psychiatric dysfunctions including panic attacks, stress, anxiety, and undue agitations. Magnesium supplements considerably reduce the severity of such attacks and may also help in reducing the rate of recurrence.

My Reflection

My Reflection

This site is a tribute to Buddhism. Buddhism has given me a tremendous inspiration to be who and where I am today. Although I came to America at a very young age, however, I never once forget who I am and where I came from. One thing I know for sure is I was born as a Buddhist, live as a Buddhist and will leave this earth as a Buddhist. I do not believe in superstition. I only believe in karma.

Tipitaka: The pali canon (Readings in Theravada Buddhism). A vast body of literature in English translation the texts add up to several thousand printed pages. Most -- but not all -- of the Canon has already been published in English over the years. Although only a small fraction of these texts are available here at Access to Insight, this collection can nonetheless be a very good place to start.
