4...  Why Do Pregnant Women Need Magnesium?
Your need for magnesium increases when you are pregnant. It is an essential mineral, performing different functions during pregnancy.
It plays the role of insulin and thereby is required to maintain healthy blood sugar levels in the body . It helps build healthy teeth and bones and works in partnership with calcium. It also regulates cholesterol and irregular heartbeat. The physical and emotional stress also increases the need for magnesium.
A severe deficiency of magnesium during pregnancy can lead to preeclampsia (high blood pressure and seizures), preterm labor, infant mortality, and congenital disabilities
5....   Why Is Magnesium Important During Pregnancy?
Other than the primary reasons mentioned above, there are more ways in which magnesium works for you and your baby.
  1. Works in conjunction with calcium: Both these minerals work great together. While magnesium induces relaxation to the muscles, calcium stimulates muscle contractions. The right levels of magnesium can also keep the uterus from contracting until 35 weeks of pregnancy.
  1. Lowers the risk of osteoporosis: Adequate levels of magnesium and calcium would help in reducing the chance of bone damage later in life .
  1. Reduces cramps: Cramping is very common during pregnancy. Magnesium reduces cramps, lessens the strength of Braxton Hicks contractions, and also treats constipation.
  1. Tranquilizing property: Magnesium is the best remedy for busting stress and insomnia, which are quite common during pregnancy. Doctors usually prescribe it as a separate supplement apart from the multivitamins.
  1. Aids delivery: This mineral optimizes the blood pressure levels and improves the pain tolerance threshold, making your delivery more comfortable.
  1. Curbs nausea: Magnesium can treat nausea, which is the most common sickness along with morning sickness.
  1. Treats headaches: Magnesium supplementation may lessen the incidence of migraine headaches during pregnancy. It helps in relaxing the constricted blood vessels in the brain, preventing the lactic acid buildup, which may otherwise cause tension and migraine pain.
  1. Lowers risk of cerebral palsy: According to a review published by one research at Australia, magnesium sulfate when given to mothers who are at risk of preterm labor helped in protecting their babies from cerebral palsy.
