Sometimes the most common things are overlooked. Although it is the eighth most abundant element in the universe and the seventh most common element in the earth’s crust, we seem to have a hard time getting the magnesium we need. It’s suspected that over 43% of Canadians don’t get the dietary magnesium they need to stay healthy.
That’s not good because it’s also supposed to be the fourth most abundant mineral in our bodies.
Elemental magnesium is found in high concentrations in our bones, our heart, our muscles and throughout our network of nerves, but you can also find it working away inside every cell of our bodies. Magnesium keeps heart rhythms steady, maintains muscle functions, metabolizes glucose, ensures nerves fire properly, creates cellular energy and helps to synthesize the basic building blocks of life – DNA, RNA and proteins. Over 800 different, essential biochemical roles that magnesium plays have been identified. With new research and understanding, that number is expected to rise.
