Tasty Magnesium Rich Herbal Infusion

I’ve been showing signs of magnesium deficiency, so I made a magnesium-rich herbal infusion, steeped over night.  It’s really tasty!

Part of my symptoms are related to the peri menopause I’m sure, but I suspect magnesium deficiency is at the root of it. I’m having a lot of fatigue, grumpiness, digestive issues, muscle spasms, tingling in my hands some times, occasional heart flutters…

And it seems the worse I feel the less likely I am to take care of myself properly. WHY do I put off taking care of myself?

So I made this herbal infusion. It is mostly oatstraw and horsetail for the magnesium and other minerals that support healthy connective tissue and nervous system, a little nettles for kidney support, and some licorice root and ginger for flavor as well as liver and digestive support.

It’s really good!  To me anyway. Maybe because I need these particular herbs right now.  If you make this and it doesn’t taste good to you consider that one or more of the herbs may not be right for you at this time.

After just one glass, I swear I feel better already!

Here is how I made it.

Then enjoy a cup or two over ice the next couple of days! Keep refrigerated after you steep it and it should be good for about 2 days.
