foods which are rich in magnesium

Magnesium which is one of those minerals that a lot of people are low on, whether they sweat it out, or it’s burned up by stress, alcohol and caffeine. While Lumity’s day and night capsules are made up of seventeen vitamins, minerals, amino acids and propriety complexes, we thought that it would be helpful to spotlight a few of the ingredients to help you understand why it’s in our formula and what its role plays. 

Very often, the first symptoms that your Magnesium levels are low are that you’re tired, irritable and achey.

Supermodel Yasmin Le Bon swears by this wonder mineral and she talks about it more in the video tutorial below that she did with make-up superstar Lisa Eldridge.

Ingredients Spotlight: The Science Behind Magnesium


Lumity’s creator, Dr. Sara Palmer Hussey, PhD, explains more about the magic components of this master mineral: “A lot of people think of Magnesium solely in its role as a muscle relaxant, but it is so much more – Magnesium is also a component of bones and teeth, contributes to healthy muscle and nervous system function, promotes physical strength and endurance, is a critical mineral required for several hundred enzymatic reactions, assists calcium and potassium uptake, assists glycolysis and aids many biosynthetic processes.

“It finds its place in the morning capsules for its key role in supporting the active mode of your day. Your energy levels are largely dependent upon the youthful efficiency and abundance of mitochondria in your cells (these are the organelles in your cells where energy is produced). The 4 most effective nutrients at optimising mitochondrial health and function are L-Carnitine, Coenzyme Q10, Iodine and Magnesium.

“The energy produced by the mitochondria (ATP) must be bound to a magnesium ion in order to be biologically active. Sufficient magnesium is, therefore, essential for youthful energy levels. Magnesium is essential also to the permeability of the mitochondrial membrane and to the transfer and, therefore, utilisation of energy.

“Magnesium has also been used successfully to treat the symptoms of premenstrual syndrome. Menstrual cramps, irritability, fatigue, depression and water retention have been lessened with magnesium.”
