Due to high stress levels, genetic factors or existing medical conditions, some people can be chronically deficient in some electrolytes. Magnesium and potassium are two electrolytes that many people are low in. Taking magnesium supplements daily can help replenish stores and prevent magnesium deficiency that’s responsible for symptoms like anxiety, trouble sleeping or muscle cramps. Potassium and magnesium are usually present in mutlivitamins, just be sure you take a high-quality, food-based vitamin in order to properly absorb these electrolytes and not any supplements that are toxic and full of junk .
If you’re one to have a really heavy period, you might also have an iron deficiency. Why, exactly? Basically, your body is losing too much blood . Health spoke to Jacques Moritz, MD, director of gynecology at Mount Sinai St. Luke's Roosevelt in New York City who said those who have especially heavy periods will only be able to replace about half of the blood they lose during their period in between cycles… and then it happens all over again. If you’re wondering what’s too heavy, the outlet suggested trying the tampon test — if you have to change it more often than every two hours it’s too much, and you should see your gyno.
Obviously this is super late, but just in case someone sees it…I had the same problem as everyone else. They turned out super sticky…more like a cheesecake filling than fudge. In addition to the texture, the butter also was separating from the rest of the batter and it tasted really bitter. For my second try, I added 1 tbsp of cacao instead of 2. I also read the comments and saw one that said to boil it for 4 minutes while stirring to get the fudge texture. I tried that but it was still goopy and the butter was still separating so I added another tbsp of whipping cream and used my whisk beater in the mixer to beat the mixture until it was a little thicker. It turned out much, much better.
