Magnesium Dietary Supplement
Magnesium is one of the most essential nutrients in maintaining
optimal health; there is no question that magnesium is one of the
most studied minerals in nutrition. It's a mineral that bathes the cell
and seems to stabilize it, calming your body at a metabolic level, a
microscopic level. If there is a tendency - whether in the cells of your
heart or lungs, your muscles, or your blood vessels - to overreact,
magnesium soothes and relaxes the body. Research on magnesium's
benefits dates back to the early 1930s, and recently we've seen a
renaissance in our study of this mineral." 7 In the human body
magnesium serves many crucial roles and is involved in a quartet of
minerals that also serve the same function. The human body needs
magnesium, calcium, sodium and potassium in the processes of
helping to transmit electrical impulses across nerves and muscles,
regulation of blood pressure, bone building and more. The electrical
impulses generate what is called neuromuscular contraction. If you
don't have proper magnesium your muscles will begin to cramp. If you
consume these minerals in proper levels you will feel younger, lose
weight, and see blood pressure fall. Get The Book The Magnesium
Miracle By Dr Carolyn Dean
Magnesium is required for the production and transfer of energy from
protein synthesis for contractility of muscle and excitability of nerves
plus it is a co-factor in a myriad of enzyme systems. Most Americans
don't get enough magnesium in their diet. Studies say the intake has
been dropping steadily over the last 100 years. Coincidentally, or
maybe not, blood pressure has been rising over the last 100 years.
Magnesium contributes to pH balance. It is important to distinguish
between the element magnesium and the compound magnesia.
Magnesia causes diarrhea whereas magnesium helps in the
maintenance of healthy bones, ligaments, and hormonal regulation.
Magnesium is known for its calming nature as it works on the nerves in
a cathartic manner, the soothing properties of magnesium help induce
restful sleep. "Approximately one and one-half of magnesium are
found in the body tissues, and at times up to three ounces. Magnesium
contributes to the alkalinity of the body and acts as a natural laxative
for the bowel. In addition, it calms nerves, makes the body more
flexible - especially in muscles, nerves, ligaments, tissues, joints and
Magnesium combats acids, toxins, gases and impurities and cools the
body. It benefits the brain through the neutralization of phosphoric byproducts of heavy brain activity or over consumption of phosphorus
foods. Humans must have the biochemical form of magnesium.
Magnesium assists in the body's uptake of both potassium and
calcium, and a magnesium deficiency promotes deficiencies in calcium
and potassium. "Sixty percent of tissue magnesium is located in the
skeleton. Most of the rest is within the cells. Magnesium is required for
the activation or structure of more enzymes than any other mineral.
Many magnesium - dependent enzymes cannot use any other mineral
as a replacement for magnesium." 9 So it is easy to understand why
magnesium is so vital to our well being.*
