Magnesium and Potassium 90caps

  Magnesium Facts

Magnesium, is a mineral, that is abundantly found in nature, and the human body contains approximately one ounce of magnesium, mostly in its bones and muscles. Magnesium is found in both plant and animal sources, but plants provide a richer source of this mineral. It may be one of the most important anti-aging minerals, and magnesium is essential for calcium and vitamin C absorption, as well as helping the metabolism of phosphorus, sodium, and potassium. Overall, magnesium helps convert blood sugar into energy and it is necessary for effective nerve and muscle functioning. It is often referred to as the anti-stress mineral. Many people are deficient in this mineral because of reliance on processed foods and because magnesium is easily depleted by stress, some diseases and medicines, and intense physical activity. Alcoholics are also usually deficient in this mineral.

How Magnesium Works

Magnesium is an important mineral to promote health because it enhances around 300 enzyme-related processes. This mineral converts blood sugar into energy, facilitates effective nerve and muscle functioning (transmissions of impulses among nerve cells and muscle cells), and it is involved in bone and tooth formation. Magnesium (along with calcium and potassium) regulates heart rhythm, clots blood, and assists the body in producing and using insulin. Magnesium's role as a cofactor in calcium utilization is very important, for without it the enzyme that facilitates the passage of calcium across cell membranes fails to act, resulting in both calcium and magnesium deficiencies.
