Dr Oz: Increase Energy Naturally
Looking for an all-natural way to increase your energy levels and fight fatigue? With the help of Dr Tieraona Low Dog and Dr Oz’s go-to tester Rhenotha, Dr Oz revealed the one part of the holistic jump start plan you likely need more than anything: magnesium. According to Dr Low, government surveys show that approximately 50% of Americans don’t get the daily value of magnesium that we need.
Dr Oz: Are You Magnesium Deficient?
Magnesium is important for many things in the body, including providing energy to the cells. Signs of magnesium deficiency include:
- Low energy
- Muscle cramping
- Sore muscles
Dr Low Dog believes magnesium is the “magic mineral.”
Dr Oz: Magnesium Spray For More Energy
There are various ways you can get the magnesium you need. First, Dr Oz turned to Delethe who used magnesium spray. She explained that she’s a critical care nurse with means she’s on her feet for 14 hours a day, so her energy levels suffer. She admitted that she tried to cut down on her coffee consumption throughout the day because she wanted to see if the spray would really work and for her, it did.
To make magnesium spray, you combine 1/2 C of magnesium chloride flakes and 1/2 C of filtered water and put it in a spray bottle. Then you simply spray it on your arms or legs a couple times a day.
Dr Oz: Fight Fatigue With Epsom Salt Baths
Another way to combat fatigue is with Epsom salt baths, which Ericka gave a try. Dr Oz explained that anyone who’s tried an Epsom salt bath then reported back to him about it has said they felt both relaxed and energized at the same time. Dr Low Dog suggested you pour two cups of Epsom salt in the bath and soak for at least 12 minutes. Studies have shown that you can actually absorb some magnesium through the skin. Plus, bathing in Epsom salt can relieve muscle tension, improve sleep, and give you more daytime energy.
Dr Oz: Magnesium-Rich Foods For More Energy
Finally, you’ll want to munch on magnesium-rich foods like pumpkin seeds, dark chocolate, or almonds. Just 1/2 cup of pumpkin seeds gives you almost 400 milligrams of magnesium which is the daily value. In one ounce of dark chocolate you get 50 milligrams of magnesium, so you can combine them both for a tasty and nutritious treat.
