What is Magnesium?
Known as a mineral, magnesium is present in increased quantities within our bodies. Studies have shown that the body of an average person contains roughly 25 g of magnesium, out of which 1/5 can be found in the bones. Magnesium is extremely important for our bodies because it takes part in over 300 chemical reactions. Individuals obtain magnesium from foods, however magnesium supplements are required if you’re deficient. Magnesium intake is usually low in women, so they’re more prone to taking supplements than men.
How does it work?
In order to have strong bones it’s critical to include magnesium into our daily diet. The mineral is also required for the correct function of the muscles, nerves, and additional parts of the body. Within our stomachs magnesium can help neutralize stomach acid and move stools throughout the intestines.

Additional sources include: meats, coffee, dairy, and chocolate. Water with an increasing mineral content is an additional source of magnesium.
People are used to taking magnesium to treat or prevent magnesium deficiency. In the US, magnesium deficiency is not uncommon at all; the elderly and the African Americans are prone to magnesium deficiency.
Some people make use of magnesium for conditions of the heart, as well as blood vessels such as chest pains, high blood pressure, irregular heartbeat, increased levels of ‘bad’ cholesterol, low levels of ‘good cholesterol’, heart attack, and heart valve disease.
Magnesium is additionally utilized to treat ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder), chronic fatigue syndrome, anxiety, fibromyalgia, diabetes, Lyme disease, leg cramps throughout pregnancy, migraine headaches, kidney stones, premenstrual syndrome, weak bones, urinary incontinence, restless syndrome, multiple sclerosis, asthma, hay fever.
Athletes usually make use of magnesium to boost endurance and energy.
Some individuals apply magnesium on the skin to cure infected skin ulcers, carbuncles, and boils. Magnesium can also be utilized as a cold compress in treating severe skin infections triggered by strep bacteria.
Several companies that produce combinations of magnesium/calcium supplements promote a 2:1 or even 3:1 ratio as ideal for absorption of the mentioned elements. Nevertheless, there’s no credible research to hold up the claim. The FDA and the FTC are carefully evaluating the claims according to which coral calcium products have proper combinations of calcium and magnesium to cure certain diseases.
Matches perfectly with: vitamin D
