- MAGNESIUM is an electrolyte and is essential to hundreds of human biological processes, many relating to energy production, protein formation and cellular reproduction like DNA and RNA. Unfortunately the critical role of magnesium in the human body is often forgotten in favour of “more fashionable” glamour minerals. Magnesium is as important, if not more important than calcium and phosphorus
- MAGNESIUM is the fourth most available mineral in the human body. Approximately 50% of body magnesium is stored in our bones. Our blood contains a 1% level, a level the body maintains rigorously. The remaining magnesium is predominantly found in cells of body tissue and organs.
- MAGNESIUM, like phosphorous and calcium, is needed for strong healthy bones and is directly related to bone density. It is also needed for normal muscle and nerve functions and heartbeat function. Magnesium is essential for maintaining a healthy heart. Magnesium helps stabilize heartbeat rhythm and helps prevent blood clotting in the heart.
- MAGNESIUM can lower the chance of heart attack and stroke.
- DEPLETION of magnesium from the body may result from several sources including high consumption of tea and coffee, overexercising (without replacing fluid and electrolytes) and emotional stress.
